Chen Williams - Shank series

Chen Williams – Shank series

Menacing beauty are the words that spring to mind when I see these shanks by Chen Williams. The whole notion of taking time to craft an object or tool that is designed to maim or seriously injure is something that really gets you thinking. Seeing these objects out of their perceived context allows you to admire the aesthetics of  the object...

Venske & Spanle 'coming together'

Venske & Spanle ‘coming together’

I love these works by Venske & Spanle that I found via Design Boom. Read the full speil over their but these sculptures are made out of marble. I love works that defy the material they are made up of. These works seem to limp and ooze like organic material.In a way they remind me...

Richard Serra

Richard Serra

After Yentob making an idiot out of himself touring art galleries with Jaz Z, trying desperately to grasp “ye old Hip Hop”, it was refreshing to catch BBC’s Imagine get its focus back on art with a programme about sculptor/artist Richard Serra. Serra’s work really strikes a chord with me as I love anything minimal,...
Monolake

This is a post that I have been meaning to do for quite some time. For quite a while now my favourite recording artist has been Monolake. There is something about his extra deep and sometimes-dark beats that really resonate with me. It’s perfect working music. As a graphic designer what really makes Monolake stand...
