I surprised I haven’t posted anything by Takashi Murakami here on Sweet Station yet. I guess I just assumed everyone knows about his work. Here’s a six metre high, blow up self-portrait sculpture of Takashi at the Museum of Islamic Art (Doha, Qatar).
Oh look, it’s Robert DeNiro, Christopher Walken, and Daniel Day-Lewis in disguised as Bill the Butcher!! Nice. What better way for them to join forces than to have their handsome faces immortalized in magnet forms. We can all thank Honey for that, the artist and founder of the best virtual art gallery on the planet – Sweet Station, in my humble opinion. Yes I know, I’m her brother so I’m biased. These magnets aren’t your ordinary run-of-the-mill magnets. These magnets are special. How special you ask? Check out the details on Robert’s face. How about Christopher’s wrinkles! Are you mystified by Daniel’s handlebar stache? Their mugs were lovingly recreated from Honey’s amazing illustrations. For $8 plus cost of shipping, you’d get a pack with one of each. It’s been a long loooooong time coming it seems but we finally have the magnets ready to go. All they need are good homes. Before I forget, there’s a surprise that comes with each awesome magnet packs. I don’t wanna spoil it but let’s just say that if you can handle that truth, this is as good as it’ll get. We appreciate you and I promise you’ll like the magnet packs. But hurry, we’re only making a very limited run, for real. Click here to buy.
Lui Liu was born in March 1957 in North China and came to Canada in 1991. Speaking both Chinese and English fluently, Lui Liu possesses superb painterly techniques, his unique language that finds a wide range of audience around the world. His acquisition of techniques started during China’s Cultural Revolution when he was a young boy painting posters on the streets and continued in the most prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Through his paintings, Lui Liu creates a surreal world that transcends cultures and spaces. Growing up in China and living in the west give him a dual role of being an insider and outsider of both worlds and afford him to “stand alone facing east and west, as he chooses,” wrote Barry Callaghan, a renown Canadian writer.
” Ledger sheets are traditionally used to record the financial transactions of a business or an individual. These papers host the data necessary for accounting information to be compiled, and for analysis in determining profit and loss. They are the material of economics. In an attempt to understand our need to quantify our transactions, I employ this paper. I use a drafting knife to individually remove tens of thousands of boxes from this paper, leaving behind the lattice of the grid intended to separate the boxes. The skeletal pages drape and accumulate, demarcate the time cost for their creation, and become the buildings for which they have laid the groundwork. With each piece, the notion of “value” is called into question – be it the value of our quotidian pursuits, the relative value of labor, or the implicit values of economic advancement.” – Jill Sylvias
Lilian Bourgeat (born 1970, lives and works in Dijon) creates installations composed of oversized items from everyday life. Thus deprived of their usual and familiar character, they gain new autonomy by changing scale ratios. These objects are surreal and unsettling experience singular to the public. The interaction between the work and the viewer, who is invited to use it as a street furniture is an important feature of the work of the artist.
Villa F is a 220 square meter luxury home located in Rhodes, Greece- designed by German based Hornung and Jacobi Architecture. Beautiful!
” My ‘arrival’ at painting has been a slightly unusual one, in the sense that I purposely set out to study a skills based 3D Design course, where I specialized in ceramics. My rationale for this being that I have always loved the ‘making process’ and I am very interested in the three dimensional and textural quality of objects and spaces. I worked in clay for some years after leaving Art College, whilst starting to get commissions for paintings (mainly watercolours at the time). The painting evolved from this and eventually took up all my time. Drawing and making are still at the core of the work, but painting allows me to invent other spaces and ideas with no physical constraints.” – Miriam Escofet
