Nuec

Nuec - Taro KudoGet ready to have a wallpaper seizure! If are photo-light sensitive, then be warned, you may need to find a dark corner after checking out this fractal-inspired Flash site of Japanese artist and designer, Taro Kudo. Of course, this is more than a wallpaper site... it's about art, experimentation, and creating a mood. A bit difficult to navigate, sure... but certainly unique! Straight from Tokyo, Japan.... More

BLU

BLUBLU is a innovative street artist whose work in large scale formats often has an allusion to a larger social-political commentary. While some of his work is ambiguous, and reminiscent of the black and white drawings of Edward Gorey, most of his work requires a bit of thought and introspection, and strikes us as a cross between Art Spiegelman and Banksy. This home site for his work is a great all-in-one destination to view all of his work. Also don't miss his one-of-a-kind graffiti animation MUTO (for video, scroll down).... More

Lady Aiko

Lady AikoSomewhere in between pop-art and graffiti, Roy Lichtenstein and Henry Darger, lies the conflicted work of Lady Aiko. Expressing angst at instruments of war, contrasted with a multi-layered mash-ups of cute bunnies and stencils of semi-topless (liberated) go-go girls, her paintings and stencil work convey some of the insecurities, stresses and gritty realities of life in the urban condition....

Open Communication

Open CommunicationA really good "English ad shop" in Scandanvia, Open brings their unique marketing and advertising perspective to their international projects and clients.

Satellites Mistaken for Stars

Satellites | Alexander EggerIf you want to see some great collages and mixed media art in a graphic style, look no further than the explorations and emissions of Italian-born artist Alexander Egger. This simple site is a collection of his thoughtful, beautiful, visual essays and explorations, which come in the form of several short 'zines and even his own monograph, published by Ginko Press. While Alex has several conduits for creating expressive mixed media pieces, much of his professional work is minimal and reserved in both color palette and composition – but his knack for breaking the rules with his own artistic style is what makes his work expressive and contemporary. Great identity work, print, posters, and graphic installations.... More

Bill McMullen

Bill McMullenWhere popular culture and urban street art meet is where you will find Bill McMullen, a New York design talent who got his start putting together club and show flyers while he was in school in San Diego, California. Here, at his portfolio, you will find an eclectic mix of mashed-up street art, pop culture, apparel and graphic design. Previously designing hip-hop albums at Def Jam's design subsidiary "The Drawing Board" for three years, Bill more recently has been out on his own pursuing other projects like his SwishNYC label and his own art. McMullen's clients include Beastie Boys, Adidas, Criterion Collection and MTV, as well as his own projects like t-shirts, limited edition jewelry, and the vinyl 'Shuttlemax' toy with KidRobot. Of all the "mash-ups," one of our favorites is the shell-top Adidas/AD-AT from Star Wars. Bill is currently (2007) working for Burton and Adidas.... More

Glenn Moust

Glenn MoustThe showcase of the Danish collage artist Glenn Moust—the site brings us up close and personal to the painting and mixed media work of this talented artist. There are probably over 100 different pieces of his signature dirty, abstract work... although we must say that not having a system of navigating through the enlarged images makes it rather hard to view more than 10 pieces....

TH Design

Tim Holley DesignA nice portfolio site for an industrial design student from Germany who also has a solid range of graphic design projects.

His work focus is around information management and the design of data structures for cultural institutions and the entertainment industry. A lot of the time this leads to the creations of cool charts and maps – but is also expressed in his own brand of technology based alternative art, which is complex, yet thoroughly interactive....
