Turning the Dark Side Onto the Art Side at the Saatchi Gallery

There will never be a shortage of art inspired by Star Wars. It’s like Pandora’s Box — those damned demons have been granted their freedom, and there’s no way to ever again stop the onslaught. Stormtrooper helmets — among the most iconic elements of the Star Wars universe — seem to be particularly ripe for artistic […]

British photographer shows off best work of 1960s celebrity

British photographer Terry O’Neill made a name for himself shooting the most prominent stars of the 1960s, quickly moving up the ranks from his first gig shooting Laurence Olivier to following around the likes of The Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, The Beatles, and Bridgette Bardot.

The continuing adventures of The Void, Omen & Ruth

Another beautiful toy from the crew over at COARSE. In fact to call it a toy is probably doing a disservice to the highly exclusive piece; perhaps “sculpture” is a better term.

Maskull Lasserre is a talented craftsman/carvesman making his way through the world of aesthetics. Turning what was once simply a hobby into a web of handcrafted art, Lasserre is one of the more recent artists to crawl his way out of the basement of apprenticeship.

Part of "Virtual Reality" exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery NYC

This is one of those pieces of art that massages us right in the sweet spot of our frontal lobe, or wherever it is in our brain that appreciates art. Japanese artist/skateboarder Haroshi crafted this exquisitely accurate and humorously detailed skull out of re-purposed skateboard decks, even giving the handsome charmer a gold tooth and braces.
