Fast Food Paintings – Art Show


Stopped by the Blackstone Gallery last night during the monthly Downtown Los Angeles Artwalk and checked out the “Fast Food Paintings” exhibit. Artist Mr. Lets Paint AKA John Kilduff, created an installation based on a fast food restaurant and had a bunch of burger paintings displayed all around. I still think my “Knuckle Sandwich” burger is better though =).

Gingerbread Burger Drive-Thru


Have you checked out Betsy’s daily project? She is basing her project around “Pin-Up” art and has created this “Gingerbread Retro Drive-Thru” for the holiday season. What else would this drive-thru serve besides Gummi Burgers! Make sure you check out her website for more photos of this as well as other cool images from her project.

Catburger Video Game at Giant Robot Biennale 3


Checked out the Giant Robot Biennale 3 at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles over the weekend and saw this art exhibit/video game by Jeni Yang and Beau Blyth. You compete against a partner as cats trying to collect parts of a burger. First to “grab” 10 items wins! See more info at Jeni’s Blog – http://jeniyang.blogspot.com/2012/06/catburger-game.html.

Hamburger Statue


Check out this cool hamburger statue in South Korea:

“A collection of sculptures found near BEXCO and the Museum of Art, Busan’s Olympic Sculpture Park pays homage to the city’s involvement in the 1988 Summer Olympics and provides a place to check out some bizarre modern artwork. ”

Pictures from Burger365 at Cement Studio


For those who missed it on Friday, here are a few photos from the Burger365 installation at Cement Studio in Los Angeles. This and Post Humanity was a great event. Big thanks to Ramichael, Emily, Maria, and Jino for making it happen.

 

Post Humanity Art Show + Burger365 at Cement Studios


If you are in the Los Angeles area, please come check out the “Post Humanity” art show at spaceLUNA, opening tomorrow night June 1st at 7pm. Myself and a bunch of other talented artist are showing new work:

Imagine a place that holds you like a blanket, providing warmth on cold nights and housing light within darkness and solitude. In a world of chaos, imagine a place with less conflict and more appreciation for the surroundings we inhabit.  On June 1, 2012, 7:00PM, spaceLUNA Art Gallery opens a group exhibition to reveal the differences that are our similarities.  By understanding human endurance, resilience and creativity awakens the spirit.  What happens when benevolence ends, but the passion and drive for survival linger in the human mind? 
 
“Post Humanity” presents a moment to embrace rebirth.  The exhibit showcases the new works of emerging artists throughout the Los Angeles County.  Embracing the diverse creative outlets that bind artists together, the many art forms (3D, culinary, graphic design, fashion design, illustration, painting, photography, sculpture, street art, visual and mixed media) will allow and encourage the viewer to discover the irony that occurs in daily life and the commonalities we in fact hold. By utilizing the elements and themes of water, wood, and metal, artists incorporate their medium to acknowledge the physical, cultural, and political environments.

Hamburger Quilt by LUKE


This quilt is awesome! Created by artist Luke Haynes for his “American Nostalgia” series.

“This is a set of quilts I made a few years ago for an exhibition in central California in response to a survey I sent out. I asked what evoked a nostalgia for America. I made a set of quilts from those 700 responses. I learned that there is no small set of icons that comprise American Nostalgia. I learned a few things through this process.”

Check out more quilts on his site:

Happy Year of the Dragon everyone! Dragon’s usually hoard gold, but perhaps that is because hamburgers weren’t around when they were…

Sent in by Emily, here is a very intricate version of an origami hamburger. Created by the duo of  Zim & Zou, a lot of detail and crazy colors makes this origami piece super cool and was featured on the cover of Icon Magazine.  Looks like they create other awesome origami pieces as well.
