Pen & Paper: Sam Parker

Hyperbeast - Wed, 2014-08-27 13:27

A self-proclaimed "obsessive workaholic" who works up to 80 hours a week, Sam Parker is rarely found not making art. In between tattooing, painting and participating in art exhibits, the Minnesota-born artist opened his sketch book to share some of his illustration work for our latest Pen & Paper. While Parker was introduced to art through the world of graffiti, it was during his university years where he honed his skills in painting and drawing, which lead to his fascination for tattoo art. Parka's unique style is a cohesive mix of his creative tenure -- gritty and raw yet tinted with a sophistication garnered from his academic years and personal experiences in life. In the drawings showcased here, graffiti-inspired shapes and curves are mingled with surrealist graphics and Japanese-inspired motifs. Abstract and endearing, check out Sam Parker's work above and head to his webpage for more on the Atlanta-based artist.

Cai Guo-Qiang "The Ninth Wave" Exhibition @ Power Station of Art

Hyperbeast - Wed, 2014-08-27 12:27

Last year, 16,000 dead pigs floated down a river in Shanghai which triggered questions on China's environmental conditions. The news disgusted most and also served as inspiration to Cai Guo-Qiang, who recently launched a solo show called "The Ninth Wave" at Shanghai's contemporary art museum, the Power Station of Art. The show consists of grand installations that are both compelling and disturbing. Signature works include a full-size fishing boat with faux animals -- think tigers, pandas, leopards and elephants -- looking sick and distressed. The installation was inspired by a 19th-century Russian painting also named "The Ninth Wave," where survivors of a shipwreck hung on to the boat waiting to be rescued. Guo-Qiang replaced the survivors with disheartened animals, making satirical remark on the pollution crisis. Shot by Benoit Florencon, enjoy recap photos of the exhibition above and be sure to check out the exhibition if you're in Shanghai.
