Mark Jenkins - surface and surfaceAnthropomorphic street sculptures from Mark Jenkins. 

“There is opposition, and risk, but I think that just shows that street art is the sort of frontier where the leading edge really does have to chew through the ice. And it’s good for people to remember public space is a battleground, with the government, advertisers and artists all mixing and mashing, and even now the strange cross-pollination taking place as street artists sometimes become brands, and brands camouflaging as street art creating complex hybrids or impersonators.” – Mark Jenkins

adam stennett - surface and surface I saw some of Adam Stennett’s paintings in Blackbook magazine good few years ago now and was blown away by his skill and bizarre subject matter (he assures viewers no mice were harmed in the making of his Art). Adam’s work ‘The Lost Order’ is now in the January 7th issue of The New Yorker accompanying Rivka Galchen’s fiction story ‘The Lost Order’. More of Adam Stennett’s work is currently on show as part of “We Could Be Heroes: The Mythology of Monsters and Heroes in Contemporary Art” at Brigham Young University Museum of Art, until 6th of April 2013.

carlos cruz-diez - surface and surface 1 Beautiful lighting installation by Venezuelan Artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. Cruz-Diez work is about the viewers interaction without any need for cultural context. He works with silk-screen prints, video, architectural models, and traditional paintings. Olafur Eliasson has done similar chromatic works if you’re interested in seeing more of this kind of stuff.

‘Architecture for Dogs’ is a collaboration between some of the worlds game changing Architects and lovely looking dogs with some pretty out there results.  If you see one you’d really like for your dog you can download the blueprints and make it at home, although some look ridiculously difficult to build. Have a look at the site for videos of each design and 3d animations of the construction.

BIG - Phoenix observation tower - surface and surfaceCopenhagen and New York based Architects BIG’s (Bjarke Ingels Group) design for a mixed use Observation Tower in Phoenix, Arizona. Influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum rotunda, the tower marks a pin in the city to provide a new identity to the sky line. The oversize lollipop like structure towers 130 meters above the city consisting of a reinforced concrete and an open-air spiral sphere.

Benjaman Kyle - miguel endara - surface and surfaceI posted about the stippling portrait Miguel Endara did for his father a few months ago but I saw this yesterday on ‘This is Colossal’. After watching a screening of the documentary, Miguel Endara created this portrait to raise funds for Benjaman Kyle who’s situation is explained in the trailer for a documentary below. In short a man now named Benjaman Kyle was found unconscious behind a Burger King in America in 2004, after suffering from amnesia he now has no recollection of his previous life and because he has no social security number or real name he cannot get a job or even stay in a homeless shelter. The reason behind the film and the print is to spread awareness for Benjaman’s plight and to help raise money through the sale of prints to support a petition to get him a new social security number.

kijek adamski - surface and surfaceHappy New Year! I just saw this over on pleasure of chaos. Really clever and simple idea for a music video directed by Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski for Reebok. No idea what the lyrics are about but the visuals are great. If you liked this one have a look at their video for Oi Va Voi back in 2009 lots of shredded paper.
