Dennis Hopper “Colors” with Real Gangs and Cops

Dennis Hopper used real gang members and cops as extras in the film, “Colors.” A type of social experiment as an artist and activist. Hopper was a native to Venice, living in the midst of heightened gang culture and territorial graffiti tags. From the gang and graffiti expression on the wall and the streets, Venice also birthed a mecca for street art, murals, and creatives to reside and slowly gentrify the gang-torn beach front property.

James Jean Brings Paradise to Pow!Wow! Taiwan

Using house paint, lacquer, spray paint, and oil James Jean (featured here and here) completed his second mural ever at the first edition of Pow!Wow! Taiwan. The mural entitled Paradise depicts Taiwanese macaques tumbling in a “paradise/prison of man’s making.” As he did in Pow!Wow! Hawaii only a few months ago, Jean shows his ability to transfer his unique illustrative style to a larger canvas. Here’s a few views  of the process:

From The New World

If you are yet unfamiliar with Chinese artist Yang Yongliang, his latest and largest work “From The New World” will get you acquainted quick. The digital collage is so massive  that it is difficult to take it all in online- but with the aid of these details from Yongliangs’ website, you can get an idea. From a distance the work appears like a dreamlike Shanshui painting, but up close a futuristic landscape overrun by rampant development and unchecked industrialization emerges.

Into the Sublime: ‘Collage Al Infinito’ by Trasvorder

Collage al Infinito is an ongoing series of retro-psychedelic collages by Mariano Peccinetti- aka Trasvorder. Both artist and musician, Trasvorder uses found imagery, and cosmic themes from the 60′s to transport his viewers across sweeping vistas of nature and into the sublime of outer space. Here’s a selection of some of our most favorite images, as well as a remix track from Trasvorder’s own retro-electronica…sit back…look…and listen.
