Paintings by A. Andrew Gonzalez

November 8th, 2011

I stumbled upon the most amazing paintings yesterday. At first I thought they were sculptures or carvings but they are airbrushed acrylics on panel or canvas. These beauties are the work of A. Andrew Gonzalez. Even more remarkable, Gonzalez has no formal art education but was raised in a creative family and is largely self-taught. His style is exquisite and and very distinctive. Influenced by idealism in the mystical, visionary and esoteric traditions, his forms, values and highlighting are created by lifting pigment with an abrasive eraser followed by the application of transparent layers of pigment. The result is pure eye candy and I can stare at these all day savoring every little detail. Visit his website at sublimatrix.com if you find yourself craving more.

A lot has been going on in my life the past few months, but enough about me. I’ve got a new art post for you today. Check out these amazing artworks by Carne Griffiths. Carne sketches on paper with graphite and calligraphy ink and then manipulates the sketch with liquids – usually tea or brandy. He works mostly with human and floral forms. Check out more of his work on his website at www.carnegriffiths.com. He has several prints for sale there as well.

Sometimes the Stars – The Audreys

May 27th, 2011

“Sometimes the Stars” is a gorgeous new song from Adelaide, Australia band The Audreys, taken from their 2010 album of the same name. The accompanying short animated film, produced by Luke Jurevicius and directed by Ari Gibson & Jason Pamment, is about a lost girl’s journey through a surreal landscape, and her yearning to make a connection in this distant yet strangely familiar world.

Tracktor Bowling Unplugged – IRU.TV

March 4th, 2011

Tracktor Bowling — сегодня один из самых ярких музыкальных коллективов на российской альтернативной сцене. Группа образовалась в 1996 году, но первый полноценный альбом вышел через целых шесть лет — в 2002. Основная «изюминка» коллектива — женский вокал вместе с очень тяжелым гитарным звучанием. Тексты — на русском языке. На сегодняшний день музыкальный стиль группы можно охарактеризовать так: современная тяжелая гитарная рок-музыка. Гремучая смесь самых актуальных мировых музыкальных направлений.

Eye of the Storm – Ben Lovett

February 20th, 2011

Check out this brilliant music video for “Eye of the Storm” by artist Ben Lovett from his soon to be released album “Highway Collection”. Director Chris Alender and producer Kris Eber of Soapbox Films describe the project as “the story of a lonely captain who has to unshackle himself from a troublesome past in order to move on to the next chapter in his life.” I recommend you watch it fullscreen. The visuals are truly stunning. There’s also a behind the scenes video if you’re interested in how it was made.
