KAWS AT THE STANDARD

kaws at the standard

The Standard does it again. Recently they debuted their own boutique airline and now, just in time for the High Line’s expansion, they partner with the artist Kaws. Over the past year Kaws toured his Companion sculpture around the world. Its last stop was at the Aldrich Contemporary Museum and now it’s landed outside The Standard. Tons of people were drawn to the attraction as it was being set up. Arrested Motion was there to capture it all. We posted a few images below as a sample.

IMAGES OF SOUTH KOREA

south korea by justine chang

Justine Chang is a talented artist and photographer. Over the past year we became friends while she interned at our office. Recently, she traveled to South Korea and when she returned she shared with us a fantastic collection of photos. Naturally I asked if I could share them with our readers. The images are subtle and still, but they suggest an unseen hustle – a work ethic rich with modern and traditional symbols.

As Justine describes it, “This series weaves in and out of the city and the countryside, the modern and the traditional, the clean and the raw. The interesting thing is that sometimes the traditional is in the city, and the clean lines and geometry are found in rural towns. I think South Korea is open and willing to adapt Western ideas while remaining loyal to conventional morals and values. It’s definitely on its way to, if not already, making a huge mark in the global community.” Click Read More to view.

STREETS IN THE ABSTRACT

Sabina Lang Daniel Baumann

Blasting unexpected areas with the most literal street art we’ve seen to date, swiss artists Sabina Lang & Daniel Baumann (also known as L/B) transform neighborhoods and towns with their massive installations. Vibrant and energetic, each project presents their abstract ideas in a new way. Whether it’s painting the quiet streets of a swiss housing development, a cross-bridge or a soccer field, Sabina and Daniel’s work dances across the ground with staggering ambition. There’s no problem thinking big in their camp. They started working together in 1991 and haven’t slowed down since. Click Read More for a closer look.

AIRPORT ON TILT

hamburg miniature airport

Tilt Shift photography is the filter de jur. Apps like TiltShifGen popularized the effect that takes real life images and makes them look like models or miniatures. The above photo looks like a tilt shifted image of a real airport, but it’s not. Much like life imitating art, imitating life, Hamburg’s Minatur Wunderland spent $5 Million to create a model airport with staggering detail. Earlier this month, the museum opened its model Knuffingen Airport to the public. Click Read More for additional information and a closer look.

SOMEWHERE TO GO

bernd wichmann

We recently discovered the awe-inspiring photography of Bernd Edgar Wichmann. Born in Aachen and now residing in Düsseldolf, his images capture the essence of travel in a refreshing way. Each shot is atmospheric. Yet, they don’t feel staged. In fact, many would be impossible to stage. It’s incredible how he seems to be in the right place at the right time to shoot a thought provoking moment. After viewing his body of work, Bernd has quickly become one of our favorite photographers. If you’re looking for a bit of travel inspiration, definitely follow this artist.

XYZ AXIS

mwm graphics

Matt W. Moore has a fantastic show on display at Cincinnati’s YES Gallery. Entitled XYZ Axis, the installation includes 15 original canvases that were all created on the spot without preparation. Matt arrived with no art, no supplies nor a plan. He just went to work. The end result was a colorful array of his vector style imagery. Using spray paint as his medium he describes, “This was an honest attempt to achieve the same depth and abstract geometry of my digital work.” We think he nailed it. In addition, Matt also painted a massive mural in downtown Cincinnati. We have a few photos of the show posted below. Click Read More to view.

ANALOG TRANSIT

Sergey Neamoscou

Sergy Neamoscou’s photography is soothing. In today’s world of high-gloss imagery, it’s nice to see photos that rally imperfection and display something beautiful. His work is like listening to vinyl. There’s a thriving rhythm, but under an analog hum Sergy finds a way to slow things down so you pay attention to every part. This is most noticeable in his collection of subway photographs. We’ve selected a few images to give you a taste of his work. Click Read More to view.
