1 Risa Fukui

From now until September 8th, Japanese artist Risa Fukui has a must-see paper cutout exhibition at the Pola Museum Annex. The Japanese art of paper cutting, also referred to as kirie, has been the force behind some magnificently talented artists like Rogan Brown and Bovey Lee, but never before have we seen it on such a massive scale. In her exhibition called LIFE-SIZED Risa Fukui presents 10 works that look like scribbled portrait drawings, so much so that it is almost unfathomable that they were cut out from a gigantic piece of paper.

Who Wore it Better 11

Call it a copy, call it a tribute… we might think we’re in the age of the remix, but we’re not: this has been going on for a long, long time. Just check out the mind blowing Everything is a Remix series by Kirby Ferguson or these creative comparisons from a fantastic site that asks: Who Wore It Better? Whether it’s Roy Lichtenstein directly appropriating comic book art from Joe Simon & Jack Kirby (and making a small fortune on the subsequent paintings), or van Gogh reworking Jean-François Millet’s painting in his own impressionistic style, there have been centuries of inspired ideas passed from one creative individual to the next… and even our most exalted heroes of creativity aren’t exempt from the practice. After all, as Picasso reportedly said, “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” [Read more...]
