Cody Hudson

From an Obama Hope poster, to public art, to paintings and sculptures, Cody’s signature style translates well in all media.  I sense inspiration from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Joan Miró and maybe even some Keith Haring. Nonetheless, it’s a style all his own, and I love it.

Jacob Whibley

Great collage work and interesting sculptures.  My favorite is the first piece “Nothing New Under the Sun.”  Reminds me of some cool, 60’s style, “green” urban living space.

Check out Jacob’s work here.

Ivan Puig

“Hasta Las Narices” sculpture by Ivan Puig.

I can see how a piece like this can have a profound impact on a viewer. There is an initial shock value and almost panic of “witnessing” this car sink into the floor.  SO brilliant.

Richard Pearse

“I am a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg and his ability to take items that were lying around and turn them into lush pieces of artwork. I was always very moved by how beautiful something made up of such mundane and throw away items could look when placed together with consideration.

My art is really heavily influenced by the music I’m inspired by and attempting to create. I think about music in terms of loud and quiet colors, textures and patterns, and to me a lot of these pieces are interpretations of songs or parts of songs. Songs are made up of a series of interlocking pieces that work well together and this is what I try to create with my art.”

These are the words of artist Richard Pearse. He puts a modern spin on the techniques developed by likes of Rauschenberg and pulls it off in a unique fashion. I would kill to have one of these pieces hanging in my living room.

Gabriel Dishaw makes detailed sculptures out of junk, specifically computer and typewriters. This pair of Nike shoes made out of green circuit boards are so rad, it’s like they were made for a robot version of Michael Jordan.

Alexandre Farto

The current show at the infamous Lazarides Gallery in Londons Rathbone Place features a young man from Portugal called Vhils AKA Alexandre Farto.

Vhils started his career as a traditional graffiti artist – exploring less conventional mediums, manipulating his imagery into layers of torn away billboard advertising, etching into metal and chiseling his work directly into walls.

Originally executed in the street, it’s interesting to see how these works translate into the Gallery environment. It’s nice that some of the pieces even appear to have been carved out of the gallery walls themselves.

The show even comes complete with a full-scale cast of part of a tube train: a collaboration with the also very talented Ponk from Bristol.
