Urban Cityscapes Spray Painted on Cardboard Panels by EVOL

May 1, 2012

Christopher Jobson

German street artist EVOL (previously) is currently showing a number of new pieces at Jonathan LeVine gallery. The new works feature urban facades spray painted with the use of stencils on flat sheets of cardboard. Much like his outdoor graffiti, these stencils display an uncanny attention to detail, depicting light and shadow that transforms mundane surfaces of consumer packaging into fascinating, seemingly multi-dimensional pieces of art. The show runs through May 5th. (via juxtapoz)

I’m really enjoying some of these urban installations by street artist Filthy Luker. His art attacks are fantastic as well as this huge collection of anthropomorphic objects called Street Life.

Reconfigured Sheet Music Collages

April 27, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I just stumbled onto these beautiful collages by Princeton-based artist Erika Iris who deftly reconfigures sheet music to create portraits and other illustrations. The Beethoven and MLK pieces are especially wonderful, but don’t miss some of her other works with paper or her portraits made from cassette tape and old film.

A Wall of Shattered Glass Floods a Benedictine Monastery

April 26, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Aerial is a new site-specific installation by Baptiste Debombourg (previously) at an old Benedictine monastery called Brauweiler Abbey near Cologne, Germany. Debombourg used numerous sheets of shattered laminate glass to mimic a frothy flood of water rushing into a room. Remarkably beautiful work. See much more by clicking on the thumbnails here.

Sculptures Made from Stacked and Welded Euros

April 25, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Figurative sculptor Gabriel Rufete works with a number of different materials to create delicate, fractured, and often incomplete interpretations of the human form. Among my favorite pieces are his works with welded euro cent pieces. See more on his website. (thnx, perez)

Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads [updated]

April 24, 2012

Christopher Jobson

konrads-1

German artist Cornelia Konrads creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.

What you see here only begins to sratch the surface of Konrad’s work. You can see much more on her website. All imagery courtesy the artist.

Update: Post updated 10/18/2016 with new photography.
