New Book: Sergei Sviatchenko — “Collages”

DSCF9132

I met Ukrainian artist Sergei Sviatchenko a couple of years ago on a magazine conference for indie publishers in Luxembourg. A very prolific and enthusiastic person and artist whose early output was based on collage which still remains central to his practice. He made excursions in abstract painting, photography always was and is a core element in his works. He founded Senko Studio in the early 2000s, a non-profit exhibition space in Viborg, Denmark. He is also running Close Up and Private, an Internet-based photography project dedicated to the visual language of classic style in clothing.

Sergei recently put out a new book with Vienna based publisher schleebrügge editor of which he sent me a copy. “Nice to hear from you, Jenne. I have been working on a book with Rick Poynor, it has been a wonderful journey for me. Partly because I had to go through my archive of the images, partly because of Rick´s knowledge in the world of images and his interest in my work.”

It is the first monograph to focus on the collage output of Sergei Sviatchenko, who still is a leading figure in the contemporary collage world and to quote his other publisher Gestalten from Berlin: “One of the most influential innovators of modern collage.” The book gathers his most significant work from the past decade and shares little seen collages from his early years in the Ukraine. Very good work!

Mike Giant @ FFDG, San Francisco

agent_orange

The ultimate styler in terms of graffiti, illustration and tattoos is Mike Giant who has a show up at FFDG in San Francisco. His signature style can hardly remain unrecognized, inspired by Mexican folk art and Japanese illustration. For this show he compiled drawings of modern tattoo designs as well as corporate and band logos – the “modern hieroglyphics”. Hope to get the chance to see this on the last day of the show as I will be in SF by then!

Toby Melville-Brown is an illustrator. And he has a certain focus on architecture. And details. — “Toby is in love with civilization.

The Quiet Life X Cleon Peterson

quietlife_cleonpeterson_06

This is kind of a fashion post which is rather untypical for us. But we love Andy Mueller‘s skate/art brand The Quiet Life very much, and we like Cleon Peterson’s art too. Perfect match! Both are LA locals and now collaborated on a clothing series with monochromatic illustrations by Peterson, who currently has a show up in London at The Outsider gallery.

“Sanjay and Craig” — New Series on Nick

Sanjay-and-Craig-Nickelodeon

This is amazing! Jay Howell characters in a cartoon series! Sanjay and Craig is the series on Nick he was talking about in the interview for our State Of Now issue and will be airing this May. Hilarious!

“Sanjay and Craig (who happens to be a talking snake) are best friends. Together they wander the suburbs doing the impossible, walking tightropes, shredding video game world records, posing as doctors, befriending gorillas and basically doing whatever they want to do. They’re unstoppable… as long as nobody finds out that Craig can talk, so DON’T TELL ANYBODY!”

New Book by Ingo Giezendanner at Nieves

ingo41

Zzz Züri is a new book by Ingo Giezendanner (who also did this and this before) published by the lovely folks of Nieves. I am sure that this guy never sleeps but is always drawing and drawing.
“The drawings were made with felt pen in small notebooks. The hours-long work on the drawings, which are all made right on the spot, displaces Giezendanner into meditation and lets him perceive the urban space in different ways.”

The Original Sign Painters…

SIGN PAINTERS (OFFICIAL TRAILER) from samuel j macon on Vimeo.

This the official trailer for SIGN PAINTERS, a documentary by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon. Featuring the stories of over two dozen dedicated painters, it is a film about the appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. This trade was once “overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade.”

Noma Bar

We love the illustration by the London based illustrator from Israel, Noma Bar. A good reason to show some of his work again is that the recent cover illustration for TimeOut London with the theme “Sex in London” got rejected at the last second and got moved to the feature page. Mhmmm… What’s up with the British humour? Instead they placed a Mastercard wraparound ad and left the cover more or less blank.
