The Wonderful World of Mutants



Last year my wife and I spent a year living in Seoul, South Korea. Before leaving the states I did some research and tried to find artists and creative people to connect with. I came across the artist known as Junk House on Flickr. A street artist, illustrator, and sculptor whose bright colors and organic shapes molded into funky characters that immediately grabbed my attention. I also have a background in graffiti and street art and thought she would be the perfect person to contact. She ended up being super friendly and one of the best friends I could have made while living in Seoul. We collaborated on many projects with her group the Seoul Urban Art Project. A collective of street artists both from Korea and abroad as well as photographers and videographers who get together to plan and put up work all over Seoul (filming and photographing it all).

She's one of the most hard working artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Constantly collaborating with different companies in Korea you can find her work all over Seoul. From murals and street art, to paintings and sculpture work, to the collections of doodles she has on her website, I think you'll love her imagination and fun world of mutants and creatures.

From Street to Cardboard

I am mesmerized by German street artist DOME's series on cardboard. He paints human bodies with eerie postures and proportions. The decaying canvas sets the mood for his stencil characters, who emit the sense that they are falling apart as well. His use of mixed media is also intriguing. The work above was made with acrylic, pencil, and espresso. Overall, it's gloomy, dingy, and endlessly fascinating.

Art Comedy



As artists, we often take ourselves too seriously. We forget to improvise and to create something temporary, to play, to make and to simply just get our stuff out there for the world to enjoy.

This morning, Bortusk Leer gave me a good reminder of that with a BONK! on the head. Starting with his about page, where he playfully describes that he's born from, "the forbidden love between a one-legged trapeze artist and a retired communist party official turned dancing-ferret trainer." Mr. Leer draws fantastical childlike characters that typically have more than the average number of appendages. They bleed with color, on newspaper print, and are pasted around town (from Amsterdam to New York). Lucky you if you get to see one in the wild.

Feeding the Forest Ghost

I love doing walls and especially if they are in some old, deserted ambient. So I was amazed the other day when I found this beautiful collaboration between Otecki and Szum.

For me this is a perfect example of making something that can at the same time live a life of its own and be in complete harmony with its surroundings. Jump to their flickr pages and find more amazing works from these two guys!

From Paper to Concrete

I am always at a loss for words when I try to describe the work and inspiration that Blu has had on me and I assume many others. He is the master of taking a doodle from the pages of a sketchbook to the walls of the street. It is unmatched in its execution. I could write about his work for the next two days, but it's better you see it for yourself.

First, watch this short film, titled MUTO, then visit his website and finally, check out the trailer to an upcoming documentary on his work, Megunica.
