Artist Antonio Brasko brandalizes street cred on the cat walk

Antonio Brasko, a designer out of Portland, Oregon, has taken graffiti back to the streets where it belongs. Well, except without the streets, or the graffiti part.

Designed by artist Jason Freeny, the Visible Gummy Bear is a transparent plastic carapace that [...]


We’ve covered some of Kidult‘s work here before, some of which we dig (like the  “Suepreme” tshirt), and some others that just seem like publicity stunts.

Artist Emilio Garcia's limited edition resin cephalic weaponry

Are you the type of guy who drops little nuggets of knowledge everywhere you go? Are you the sort of armchair philosopher who attends parties, passes out weed-based consumables to passersby and then casually slips Buddhist koans into conversations to blow everyone’s minds?

Guy Laramée bids "Adieu" to printed knowledge

After hearing Encyclopedia Britannica’s March 2012 announcement that it would retire production of the 244-year-old book sets, artist Guy Laramée decided to create an ode the best way he knew how: Laramée carved away the pages of a 24-volume set to reveal a mountainous landscape. He aptly calls it Adieu and it looks like one [...]
