American-Psycho

If your recent movie choices are leaning towards ghastly and ghoulish, these minimalist movie posters will be a real treat. Each image condenses a horror film’s story into just two iconic items, leaving the task of identifying the movie up to you.

What movie featured lots of typing and a woodsman’s axe? What film included TV watching and conversations on old-school landline phones? You can call yourself a true horror fan… but only if you get all of these right. [Read more…]

A giant recently climbed out of the ground in front of Széchenyi Square in Budapest, Hungary… or so it appeared. The towering outdoor sculpture was part of a pop-up installation for Art Market Budapest, a contemporary art fair that happened earlier in October. The sculpture by artist Ervin Loránth Hervé was made from polystyrene and covered with turf patches to look like the grass was being ripped from the ground (hence the sculptures name, “Feltépve”, which means “Ripped Up”).

Pejac Illusory Street Art 1

Spanish street artist Pejac recently took a trip to Istanbul, using his time there to give the city a few new windows (in his own illusory street art style of course). His work fits seamlessly into the local architecture and would probably be missed if they weren’t so interesting and different. While in the ancient city, he created a piece that looks like a keyhole, a gothic arched window, and a tiny window with massive wooden shutters. [Read more…]

James McNabb Bandsaw Cityscapes 1

When we last covered artist James McNabb, he was launching his series of bandsaw cut cities on Kickstarter, giving city blocks as rewards for support. He’s come a long way since then, recently opening a solo show called Metros at Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami. His imaginative work continues to evolve and grow, just like the cities around us. His work is a commentary on the “transformations of cities and urban landscapes, their beauty, uniqueness, and overdevelopment.” In a way, this is the journey of a woodworker from the quiet forest into the urban jungle.
