Anthony Lister, “Power Tripping.”

For his new show “Power Tripping" opening tonight - June 26th, 2014 - at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City, New York Anthony Lister has produced a body of paintings that, through rough strokes and bold colors, begin to resemble heroic beings.  Lister calls his style “Adventure Painting” which embraces mistakes and chance.  The method seems to be a successful one as the works are certainly an adventure for the eyes.  See more below:

Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.



Music and Type 2

As a huge fan of Jazz music and psychadelic tunes of the seventies we spotted two awesome record covers designed in the same style. One was Bitches Brew by Miles Davis and the other Abraxas from Santana. Both are milestones in the history of music and both are designed by one person - Mati Klarwein.

Mati Klarwein was originally coming from Hamburg, germany and for his work he moved to Paris and than to New York. Influenced by surrealism and the psychedelic movement in 1968 he designed creative record covers and painted a lot of interesting canvases. The amount of his artworks are considerable, from Brigitte Bardot to Leonard Bernstein, Richard Gere, Geraldine Chaplin. Robert Graves, Peggy Hitchcock, Nan Kempner, Florence Van der Kemp, Yussef Lateef, Donyale Luna, the Mellon family, Jean Baptiste Mondino, Carmen Rossi, and many more…

Here is the fitting sound from Abraxas - Santana to the post.
