Arturo Evening: 17 For Sol LeWitt
Arturo Evening’s short video is based on the random visual selections of a piece of code, which can generate combinations of color and shape specified for any amount of time. The only permanent piece of the image is the stationary triangle at the center, which starts to look like it too is fluctuating along with its dynamic background.
Can Love: The Graffiti Recycling Program
Since the rough and tumble street days of Wild Style, graffiti and street art have found their way into galleries in various forms. Can Love goes eco on the whole trend with their artwork made only from cashed spray paint cans. Their recycling method turns these forgotten empties into colorful, multi-paneled framed pieces, as well as sculptures. What can you turn cans into sculptures of, you ask? What every graffiti artist, deep down, truly wants to paint: flowers in vases.
Rubens Cantuni: Postcards From Another World
Photographer/illustrator Rubens Cantuni travels all over the world and takes photos of landmarks and magnificent landscapes, but those snapshots are just not interesting enough for him as they are. In his series Postcards From Another World, Cantuni adds illustrated images of a voluptuous woman whose tattoos and scanty animal costumes vary from photo to photo. There she is as an octopus in a hot spring in Koyasan. Look, now she’s climbing the empire state building as King Kong. Now she’s charging through Tokyo dressed as Godzilla—adorable yet so destructive.
