This week, Time magazine designates the top 10 guerrilla artists deemed “hip” enough to make it into Time magazine.  Along with the usual suspects —Fairey, Banksy—they do some hat-tipping to lesser known forebears like Xavier Prou, and Simon Rodia, whose Watts Towers have been celebrated by everyone from Charles Mingus to Andy Warhol.

555 KUBIK: How it Would be, if a House Was Dreaming

Mind-blowing 3-D projection on German building created by UrbanScreen:

The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture - the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers “Galerie der Gegenwart”. Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves - describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.

Alex Kovas (born 1977) is a Russian-British male model in the fitness and fashion industries.   He gained notoriety within the furry fandom after a number of videos featuring Kovas were posted to his YouTube account; the videos depict Kovas posing in a combination of body paint and animal masks.

It’s a little creepy folks!  Do what you will with this:

Humanimal is collaboration between amazingly talented body painter Kirsten Bentley and professional model and actor Alex Kovas. Combining detailed body painting with the use of prosthetics, Humanimal can create a variety of visually stunning animals, for your event using, contact lenses, body paint and ingenious prosthetics to complete the illusion. Humanimal can turn Alex Kovas into a jaguar, panther, lion or any other big cat you could imagine, as well as a range of dogs and even a zebra. All these animals are amazing recreations of the orginal, created with astounding attention detail. humanimal have even recieved praise from a big cat game keeper at a safari park reception they performed at. He commented that the markings displayed by Humanimal`s big cat were as close to the real thing as they could possibly be.

Alex has modelled for a Diesel billboard campaign and has starred in commercials for both Nike and Adidas. He has also performed in Calvin Harris?

Pulp Book: 70s Style Photography by Neil Krug

I like this this! Pulp Book is collaboration between supermodel Joni Harbeck and photographer Neil Krug. The book will feature 200 pulp inspired images. Neil Krug explains his book:

Pulp is an upcoming photo book of psychedelic images made to look like old school paperback covers. The book features supermodel Joni Harbeck exclusively as the heroine in a world of fabricated dramas. Everything in the book has been photographed with expired polaroid film to put across the mood of looking at a beautifully beat to hell dusty LP cover.

Putting this book together has been my favorite project to date. The book reflects our love for artists such as Robert McGinnis, Tanino Liberatore, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and a slew of others. Their work is a major influence for this project.

Just Colour: Music Visualisation With Paint Droplets

Jesper Kirkeby Brevik created this wonderful film as contribution to a class assignment at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.  Jesper Kirkeby Brevik describes his project:

I have chosen to base my film on a classical orchestrated piece because of the unique sound and personality that comes with each acoustic instrument. I wish to extract these qualities and transfer them into the different colours in my film, and thus give them personality. Looking at it the other way around I will also affect the instruments personality by choosing the colour to represent it and conducting that colours movement on the screen. I will naturally choose bright colours for instruments such as flute or violin, while cello or contrabass will be represented by black. The reason why I?

Alongside my Dangerous Minds colleagues, I had the pleasure of attending last spring’s Kenneth Anger lecture at L.A.‘s Hammer museum.  Although he was reluctant to take questions from the audience, the night certainly found Ken in good spirits and receptive company.  Subjects touched upon?  Well, everything from Aleister Crowley, to, why not, Agnes. B.  KA was there per the request of artist Francesca Gabbiani, who, at the time, was curating her sorcery-themed Hammer exhibit, Houseguest.
