French artist Hubert de Lartigue began in packaging design in the 80s before moving to illustration. Most of his work was mainly focused on pin-ups, and he created several sci-fi magazine covers and role playing game illustrations. Since 2003 he started painting in acrylic on canvas in larger formats and ultra hyperreal style. Currently living in Paris his main gallery is in New York at the Bernarducci-Meisel-Gallery.

Andrew Salgado Interview

(C) Andrew Salgado // The Bewildered Pursuit, 2012

Check out this interview with Canadian born/London based artist Andrew Salgado at Yatzer. Salgado’s paintings are highly deconstructive – both on a technical and emotional level. His choice of colour combos always stick in my mind – they’re almost synaesthetic. His latest exhibition is at the Dosi Gallery in Korea (20 July /18 August 2012, 202-­2 Kwangan 2 dong, Suyoung-­gu, Busan, Korea). In case you’re not fortunate enough to visit the show, you can always visit his site at www.andrewsalgado.com.

Columbian street art legend Stinkfish, famed for his ginormous psychedelic murals of local faces is exhibiting in a group show opening August 11 to September 1st at “Primeval” Culver City, CA’s Carmichael Gallery. Also featuring work by graffiti artist Emol from Diadema City, Brazil, and California muralist/streetwear designer Zio Ziegler.

Strangely enough not for his burning bank paintings, although he was ‘questioned’ about his motives regarding these, it was actually a street chalking offence, which shouldn’t be a damn law in the first place – it’s chalk for ****’s sake. You have to admire the guy for taking on this ridiculous law.

Everyone in America, GRAB YOUR CHALK AND MAKE YOUR MARK.
