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.

Stained Glass Burger


Cool stained glass burger design by Melanie Lecointe. This is one Burger365 idea that I had wanted to do, but did not get around to it.

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.

BBQ Blitz – Burger Boardgame


Check out this review for the BBQ Blitz boardgame from Time To Play:

“BBQ Blitz is a game about matching and building burgers. The first player to fill his or her plate wins. The game’s box doubles as the game board. The bottom of the box is designed to look like a barbecue grill. To start, each player gets a plate and a spatula. Each plate shows a different topping for the burgers: ketchup, mustard, cheese, or pickles. You’ll need to pay attention to what topping is on your plate. Place all the burger patties and buns face-down on the grill. Players grab their spatulas and race to flip and find the burger patties with the toppings that match their plate. Once you find all your burger patties, race to top them with a bun. Be the first to fill your plate with matching burgers—and buns on top—to win.

BBQ Blitz comes with 16 burger patties (four ketchup, four mustard, four cheese, and four pickle), 12 buns, four spatulas, four plates, and a game guide. The game is for two to four players.”
