Lello//Arnell's fascination with history and their shrines to it are just that, fascinating. I asked Jørgen Lello to tell me about their work:
Kelly Lynn Jones just recently updated her website with all new work from 2009 and on. I was really taken with her project, Challenger. As a child who sat patiently in my Social Studies class to watch, and sadly witness the explosion of the The Challenger...I find this project to be very moving.
Beyond the Challenger project there is much to see, and I have attached a few pics so be sure to take a gander!
Caleb Neelon just got back from China and shared with me a few pics of the mural he worked on for eight very, hot days. Normally a mural like this takes about 4-5 days, but because it was so hot Caleb was unable to actually even paint between the hrs of 9am and 4:30pm. (Kinda jealous of that heat right now here in chilly SF). He also passes along some images of the neighborhood and the paintings he mentions below:
"I just got back from China, from Shenzhen, right next to Hong Kong. It was the hottest place I've ever done a mural... brutal. The Dafen Art Museum, where we did the project, is in the middle of the neighborhood where a very large percentage of the world's replica oil paintings are made. Unique neighborhood for sure.
The mural was for (and on) the Dafen Art Museum. It's a project for the Shenzhen pavilion of the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, curated by Urbanus, the architecture firm that designed the museum."
Caleb, practically naked, due to the heat. Heathen!
A mural by Alexandros Vasmoulakis. LOVE it.
