A Look Inside the World of Lisa Frank

TweetA long overdue peek into the world of Lisa Frank. If you were born in the 80s, you know exactly who the hell Lisa Frank is (unless of course, you’re a straight man, but I doubt that anyone who reads these posts is a straight man, right?). Long before Miley Cyrus was dancing around in a drugged-up frenzy with life-size teddy bears there was Lisa Frank. Lisa Frank basically took any dream any c... »

Sad Photographs Highlight Our Technology Addiction

TweetIs our addiction to technology ruining our relationships? I think a lot about technology addiction, mostly when I am looking at my phone on the toilet, or in the bath, or while laying out on a beautiful day, or hanging out with my family. Technology has completely changed the way we communicate, and sometimes nowadays it doesn’t feel like we are communicating at all. Photographer Eric Pickers... »

Introducing Human Backpacks

TweetRick Owens is stunning people at Paris Fashion week with human backpacks on models. Earlier this year, Rick Owens sent male models out on the runway with their dicks hanging out. I can’t really say I have a problem with that, even though I think soft dicks look like sad little ant-eaters most of the time. In a bid to outdo himself, for his RTW Spring 2016 collection, he sent models down the c... »

Totally Provocative Photos of the Female Body

TweetNew photo series focuses on the unpleasant realities of being a woman. I know this may seem uncouth, but I have to say that I am happy to be born a man. I feel like I get the best of both worlds since I get to enjoy penises, but don’t have to wear bras, bleed every month, shave my legs and armpits, deal with sore boobs, or live in a world that doesn’t value my contributions as much as a domin... »

Ever Wanted to Live in an Airplane Graveyard?

TweetThree families in Thailand live in a graveyard for decommissioned planes. We don’t often think about what happens to old planes when they are no longer fit for the skies. When a plane is decommissioned, it is often stripped for parts and then laid to rest with other sad, barren planes in what is called an ‘airplane graveyard’. In Thailand, three families have made one of these places their ho... »

The Truth Behind Perfect Instagram Pics

TweetA new photography series reveals the truth behind perfect Instagram pictures. Unless your head is shoved up your own (or Kylie Jenner’s) ass, you have probably realized by now that Instagram doesn’t really paint an accurate portrait of a persons life. All social media, since it is controlled by the user, is designed to allow people to curate the image of themselves that they present to the wo... »

The Keith Haring Bathroom: Most Valuable Restroom in America

TweetThe Keith Haring Bathroom in NYC: As the site of Keith Haring’s last major mural, this bathroom is probably the most valuable one in America. I don’t know about you, but I like to be distracted when I am in the bathroom. Nowadays I will look at my phone for hours on end, but back in the day I would read magazines, books, or even the back of shampoo bottles while enjoying a little restroom alo... »

Elevated Street Art in Iran

TweetMural artist Mehdi Ghadyanloo creates huge works on art on public spaces in Iran. Muralists and street artists are generally thought of at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to art. This is a little ironic, since they are out there trying to make the world a more beautiful place, but unfortunately I didn’t make the rules. Street artist Mehdi Ghadyanloo is not only changing that percep... »

Steve Cutts Modern Art Caricatures About Our Sad Society

TweetThese modern art caricatures by Steve Cutts offer commentary on the world today. I know I have been writing a lot about art this week, but I have been thinking a lot lately about the state of our society, and how shitty things are, especially in New York. Unfortunately, most people truly believe that no matter how bad things are, nothing they can do will change it. Luckily, there are artists ... »

A group of artists in Mexico called the Germ Collective have undertaken a huge feat- to turn the white facades of a working class barrio into a colossal work of art. Located in Las Palmitas, the project is called ‘Pachuca Paints Itself’ and the artists have spent 14 months painting the walls of the barri... »
