Damien Hirst is a British artist known for the freak-out factor in his art. He first got famous for encasing huge dead sharks in tanks of formaldehyde, and in recent years combined bling with bereavement in a diamond-encrusted skull worth about $100 million. Now to be an owner of a Hirst work, if you want… READ MORE »

When Emma Tamburlini was 11 years old, her father, the late Pop artist Larry Rivers, began videotaping her and her sister every six months, naked or topless, and talking about their budding breasts.

There’s something you don’t know about me—I love Rubik’s Cubes. I would spend hours trying to solve them as a kid and could never do it, but was way too stubborn to peel off the stickers. A few years ago, I decided I wanted to learn how to solve one for real. I contacted a… READ MORE »

Some people keep photo albums or blogs. Design student Miho Ishizuka, however, used her hair to document her life. For this project, she lopped off her locks at certain points in time, with each centimeter of hair representing one month. The bands represent different events from the year.

Definitely something we’ve never seen… READ MORE »

Anyone who’s ever used Chatroulette knows it doesn’t take long before your screen is infiltrated by pervs. Whether it’s a set of boobs unexpectedly popping up to say hello or someone’s man meat putting on a show, if you spend long enough on the site, you’ll see it all.

We love Miranda July’s book (No One Belongs Here More Than You) and movie (“Me and You and Everyone We Know”). So, shocker, we also dig her art. She has a new exhibit up in New York’s Union Square called “Eleven Heavy Things” and it’s pretty awesome. Most of the “things” are pedestals and screens… READ MORE »

Besides this portrait of Vanessa, the magazine ran his renderings of Marlon Brando, Keith Richards, and Julian Schnabel. Do you think Johnny is as talented a visual artist as he is an actor?

Photographer Holly Norris says on her website, “Rarely, if ever, are women with disabilities portrayed in anything other than an asexual manner, for ‘disabled’ bodies are largely perceived as ‘undesirable.’” To combat that perception, Norris has chosen to spoof the highly identifiable American Apparel ads, which the company claims feature “real women,” though only real… READ MORE »

We’ve always been a little skeptical about the idea of making “art” out of garbage. Ribbon and a headband? Yes. A bit of old chain and the brooch your grandma gave you? Definitely. Two-day-old coffee filters and a sandwich wrapper? Maybe not. That said, we’ve got to give props to the guy who realized that… READ MORE »

Even though artists have been paying homage to the human form since the beginning, nudity and sex in art still cause a major commotion. Two works of art — one newish and one really old — are getting a lot of attention lately and making some people a little uncomfortable.

Urban Outfitters, your favorite mass retailer of faux-culture, has just gotten a bit more artsy-fartsy with the launch of its new Print Shop. After teaming up with Society6, “an international artist community representing more than 70 countries worldwide,” Urban has selected works from their favorite artist members, and now presents you with a gallery of… READ MORE »

Black is the whore of the fashion world. It gets passed around from group to group like nobody’s business. See: Mourners, too-chic for school chicks, little dresses, beatniks, Goths, robbers. A shared cultural and fashion phenomenon, the color (or non-color, if you’re really picky) definitely merits some analysis, which is what you get at Antwerp’s… READ MORE »

Australian photographer Gemma Rose-Turnbull says a Facebook administrator removed two of her photographs from the site’s “Photos” section because they depicted exposed breasts. One photograph showed a baby being breastfed, while the other showed a topless middle-age woman. Turnbull also had “sexy” photographs, such as from a wet T-shirt contest, which were left up… READ MORE »

I like art a whole lot. And I love living in a country where people can create any kind of artwork they want without fear of being thrown in prison or killed. I’m guessing Nina Maria Kleivan, a Danish-Norwegian photographer, feels the same way. Eleven years ago, Kleivan created a series of photos of her… READ MORE »
