straight outta hell



Andy Council

"Le Noyer Kite"

"Painted while on holiday with friends at their house in Le Noyer, Savoie, France. I love this part of the world. It was great to be painting up in the mountains and clouds with chickens running past me and the sound of cow bells in the distance. I liked also that my hosts left a table with flowers, good beer and coffee next to my paint. I want that to be the case wherever I paint now."

"Felix Road Big Cat"

"Huge piece painted at Felix Road Adventure Playground in Easton, Bristol. Hard work, but turned out OK….tricky with the scaff in the way to see what I was doing. Bug thank you to Lisa, Stuart and all the staff and kids."

Since Kamea Hadar and Defer collaborated last February on a mural in Honolulu for Pow Wow Hawaii, the two artists have joined forces in the studio for a new series of paintings currently on view at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco. Hadar’s portraiture and Defer’s otherworldly calligraphy complement each other almost seamlessly, as demonstrated by their most recent joint effort, “Paradise Lost.” Read more on Hi-Fructose

Vesod and Morten Andersen are two painters who refuse to let time stand still. While the former works with figures that seem to move like slowed-down frames in an animation (Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase comes to mind), the latter fractures abstract forms that seem to shape-shift before our eyes. Currently on view at LA’s C.A.V.E. Gallery, Vesod and Morten Andersen’s two-person show “Remix Every Second” is an exploration of the ways the two artists can distort viewers’ experiences and even perhaps make them reflect on their perceptions of reality. Take a look at some opening night photos from “Remix Every Second” and see the show before it closes on September 6.

Agnes Toth's Fragmented Paintings

Saatchi Art, Facebook

You might notice that English painter Agnes Toth’s work looks incomplete. Although logic entices us to notice the missing links, Toth’s techinque aspires to find the threshold between abstract and figurative painting. Her colorful, intentionally half-finished, realistic paintings are the result.

Toth began to create these incomplete paintings in 2008. This method gave her a sense of freedom — the possibility to not feel obligated to fill in the canvas from one corner to the other. The incompleteness of her work also derives from her life philosophy, one that aims towards working and living at a slower pace. “This is what I aim to achieve with my paintings,” she says, “to get back to that harmony and contemplation, to celebrate beauty and serenity.” For Toth, one of the purposes of painting is a meditation exercise, one that requires full concentration on her creative intentions.

In a sense, her pieces provide the viewer with the possibility to become more contemplative. In trying to take everything in, we get lost in the various colorful, fragmented pieces in the hope of somehow putting it all back together.

James Roper processes the chaos of urbanity with his multilayered drawings. A simultaneous ode and social criticism, his latest body of work fixates on a cast of archetypical LA residents — an artist, a porn star, a gang member, a homeless “bag lady,” a celebrity publicist, etc. Roper’s exhibition “The Insceding Spiral” recently closed at Mirus Gallery in San Francisco — his first solo show in two years. The artist, who is also a script writer and filmmaker, imbues his drawings and paintings with narrative elements. But Roper doesn’t help viewers navigate the hectic hustle and bustle of city life — instead he puts the crazy on full volume, producing cacophonous images where translucent forms vie for our attention.

sadtoilet this too!!

shit so cool



Paul Robertson on tumblr

You might not know Paul Robertson's name, but there's a good chance you've seen his pixels. Robertson made his first big splash with the animated short Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006, a 12-minute-long black-and-white movie depicting an amazing, though sadly fictional, side-scrolling action game. Since then he’s gone on to produce art and animation for a number of terrific games, including Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game and Wizorb.

More recently, he teamed up with Tribute Games for the Metal Slug-style shooter Mercenary Kings, which just launched through Steam’s Early Access program and will be coming to the PlayStation 4 later on. We took a few minutes to talk to Robertson about pixel art, the new game, and whether Pirate Baby will ever be something we can actually play.


sadtoilet I know this is kinda colorful, but I think you’d like these here images??

fuck do i ever, this is cool as heck. Mercenary Kings is a really cool game, too!
