This website is about any and everything that sparks the creative genius in all of us. By profession I am a Graphic Designer, and enjoy all aspects of design. From traditional to urban from resin to vinyl, these are all great mediums and deserve to be explored. On top of that everything from music to movies from guns to graffiti.
Posted above are some more amazing videos from Phil Koenig as he tapes Graffiti/Custom artist Scribe and a few of his buddies doing the hamster wall in KC. This week the videos are of Scribe painting a Bee and a Fox as well as his buddy Jason Brunson painting a Dog. There are 13 videos total and Phil will be posting 2 or 3 time-lapse movies each monday morning. It is amazing to see Scribe work and use only spray cans to make such a rad piece of art is really mind blowing! Thanks for sharing this Phil, and I look forward to the rest of em'!
"Ever since I [started] combining some mixed media or street art—‘there’s no mistake’ kind of idea—[it] makes me much more free."
-David Choong Lee
Korean-born artist David Choong Lee's intricate paintings and collages are built layer upon elaborate layer. Merging photorealistic elements with simplified shapes and patterns in a way he describes as "visual DJ-ing," his paintings draw from both classical styles and street art. Now based out of San Francisco, David Choong Lee's artwork has appeared in galleries throughout California, as well as in New York, Portland, Canada, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. Watch the interview, available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.
Before I get all verklempt, let me introduce you to Monster 42. He may not have the answer to life, the universe, and everything, but at least he's got a yo-yo, and that's a start. What do you think he's up to? Is he playing in between classes at Monster School? Is his yo-yo actually the size of Ayers Rock? Or is it not a yo-yo at all, but a complex multidimensional computer interface? You hold in your brains the Magnificent Unknown: I know that I don't know what you know, but I know that you know and I know that you'll tell us! And that's one of the reasons that 344 LOVES YOU!
