!! OMG, blob & weave: Zachary Heinzerling’s ‘Cutie and the Boxer’ !!

Ahead of his directorial debut release this coming weekend and the upcoming exhibition of the same name, Zachary Heinzerling presents a slow snippet of his documentary also entitled ‘Cutie and the Boxer’ featuring Japanese American art-making couple Ushio and Noriko Shinohara.
The movie portrays the tumultuous, often strenuous but loving and creative relationship between boxer/painter/boxing-painter Ushio and his assistant and wife Noriko [looking like a Japanese Disney Pocahontas] who’s illustrations -which satirize their 40 year marriage- will be presented alongside Ushio’s abstract boxing paintings in their first ever joint exhibition.
I have to say if my husband went around in public wearing Ugg boots and painted the bedroom walls with his boxing gloves, my marriage would also be tumultuous and strenuous, I wouldn’t be going that passive aggressive illustrative route, I’d be chucking his ass out Blu Cantrell “-Hit ‘Em Up Style” !

!! OMG, it’s AirBn-Basquiat: Jean-Michel Basquiat’s former Soho loft on AirBnB for $650 a night !!

2013-08-12-basquiatairbnb1.jpeg
I’ve been addicted to cruising AirBnb lately. There are so many dope, unbelievable places all over the planet to stay on there. Whoever’s in charge of their site design does a great job of compartmentalizing sections to get lost in. One minute I’m looking at igloos in Innsbruck or private islands in Brazil, and the next haunted castles in Australia.
Adding to that list of unique places to rent via the site is the former Soho loft of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat who died in 1988.
Don’t get the wrong impression though. This isn’t a crash pad for a junkie anymore. The new owner clearly states:

“You MUST be very peaceful people. This is NOT a ‘party loft’ situation. You MUST be able to walk up 4 flights of stairs. No smoking.”

Check out more pics and the listing for Basquiat‘s former digs after the jump.

!! OMG, the absolute WURST: Silke Baltruschat’s ‘Art In Wurst’ !!

WiK_02.jpg
I once saw Jesus’ face on a popcorn kernel, Geri Halliwell’s face in a Mr Whippy and WHOOPI GOLDBERG’S FACE on a Boston Cream Doughnut, but you don’t see me bragging about it !
Karsten Wegener, Silke Baltruschat and Raik Holst discovered the face [recreated above] from Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’ [the painting based on the film series, the painting was done afterwards in honor of the artistic genius of the film franchise of course] in a vacuum-packed slab of processed ham with carrot, egg and cucumber accoutrements at their local supermarket’s sausage counter [in German ‘wurst zähler’]. This spurned a series of counterfeit meaty mock-ups of artworks originally by some of history’s most famous artists.
Click below to see many more of their processed paintings and sausage sculptures…ach mein gott, they are the absolute WURST !!!

!! OMG, cannibalistic ballistic picnic: Jaimie Warren for Pee-wee Herman !!

11_assignment_31.jpg
What happens when you cross children’s TV shows Pee-wee’s Playhouse and Whoop Dee Doo?…It’s not A PEE PEE AND A DOO DOO but is in fact a star-studded bike ride -slash- picnic massacre palava scenario that’s what !
This is exactly what happened when Pee-wee set fellow kid’s show host Jaimie Warren the following task:

“Take a photo of yourself on a bicycle trip and show me the picnic you have when you get there.”

Any regular old person would just hop in their insta-pram and snap some pixnix of some -without the crusts- triangular cucumber sandwiches on a paper plate but Food’lebrities‘ and ‘Totally Looks Like creator Warren decided instead to dress [obv] as “Blob on a bike”, scare the poised crap out of the re-imagined members of Édouard Manet’s The Luncheon on the Grass and proceed to luncheon-binge on Dolly Parton, Pee-wee Herman, Grace Jones, Oprah Winfrey, Joan Rivers, and Little Richard, simultaneously all guests and menu items on the bike-crashed picnic-palooza.
