Post #1020 – Radiant Children

I finally had a chance to sit down and watch the new Basquiat documentary, A Radiant Child, and really, really enjoyed it.  Very well done and insightful – the bebop sound track was on point and the vibe of the whole thing just seemed really spot on.  And I liked how they tracked back to […]

Post #976 – Banksy

I’ve been a big fan of Banksy since first hearing about him 7 or 8 years ago.  The guy’s approach, sense of humor, context and general commentary on society is always spot on and he’s easily one of the most important artists to come along in the past decade.  Anyway, I finally saw Exit Through […]

Post #973 – Warning, this one’s about art….

Wayne Thiebaud has been one of my favorite artists for a while now, and after watching this clip on youtube, I’m glad to see that he’s a pretty normal, humble, down-to-earth kind of guy. Pretty inspiring and worth a watch. Much respect. And this Alice Neel documentary looks really good as well – if you’re […]

We’re keeping it light and fun here today, being April Fools and all – and who better to spend some interweb time with than the artist Porous Walker, a personal favorite of mine. True, I ganked this video from clubmumble , but only because I enjoyed it so much, and thought you would too.  I […]
