Super flemish by Sacha GoldbergerSuper flemish by Sacha Goldberger http://koikoikoi.com/2015/08/super-flemish-by-sacha-goldberger/ http://koikoikoi.com/2015/08/super-flemish-by-sacha-goldberger/#comments Mon, 03 Aug 2015 16:35:05 +0000 koikoikoi http://koikoikoi.com/?p=119126 What if Superman was born in the sixteenth century? And what if the Hulk was a Duke? Sacha’s discovery of these characters, which goes back to childhood, gave birth to a desire
to re-appropriate them, to take them back to a time forming the cornerstone of modern western art. Sacha wants to confront these icons of American culture with contemporary painters of the Flemish school. Fantastic costume design by Jackie Tadeoni and photography by Sacha Goldberger.

Paintbrush Portraits by Rebecca Szeto http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/paintbrush-portraits-by-rebecca-szeto/ http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/paintbrush-portraits-by-rebecca-szeto/#comments Sat, 13 Dec 2014 16:33:56 +0000 Martina http://koikoikoi.com/?p=85529 Rebecca Szetois an artist living and working in San Francisco, California. Her works play with subtle shifts of perception and provide open-­ended, visual prompts that encourage creative interaction and completion from the viewer.

Her work “Paintbrush Portraits” plays with notions of re-forming beauty and value. She uses humble, end-of-life, mass-produced materials inspired by her experience as a faux finisher. The paintbrush is self-referential, acting as both subject and object. It refers to the history of painting, through the medium of paint, with its own tool.

The slow and repetitive nature of whittling becomes a meditative activity in which she is able to reflect on the idiosyncrasies of each individual brush. Working intuitively, the layered surfaces of the paintbrushes become collaborators in defining their ultimate form and visual temperament while shedding light on the subtleties of the human condition.

The Art of Tomokazu Matsuyama http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/the-art-of-tomokazu-matsuyama/ http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/the-art-of-tomokazu-matsuyama/#comments Fri, 12 Dec 2014 08:11:54 +0000 Jellyfish http://koikoikoi.com/?p=13548 Tomokazu Matsuyama is a Brooklyn based artist whose large-format paintings (acrylic on canvas or paper) and sculptures depict dynamic scenes of cartoon-like cowboys and pop samurai in colorful settings and plaid and polka dot patterns.

He was born in 1976 in Japan and moved to L.A. at the age of eight. Three years later, his family moved to Tokyo and eventually, he went to New York for grad school. All these cultural experiences have influenced his current style that reinterprets traditional Japanese folklore by making use of American pop art imagery.

Tattooed Gloves by Ellen GreeneTattooed Gloves by Ellen Greene http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/tattooed-gloves-by-ellen-greene/ http://koikoikoi.com/2014/12/tattooed-gloves-by-ellen-greene/#comments Thu, 11 Dec 2014 17:00:13 +0000 koikoikoi http://koikoikoi.com/?p=40993 Ellen Greene is a very talented American artist from Chicago.

Her recent work has focused on vintage women’s gloves painted with reworked traditional western tattoo motifs and the visual tension between these two symbols.

She said:

“The gloves are symbols of a historical set of “ladylike” behavior that included modesty, purity and submissive attitudes.The tattoos in contrast speak a language of masculine behaviors.Traditional western tattoo narrative developed through sailor, and later, biker culture. These heroic and deviant imagery narratives leave out any authentic feminine expression.”
