Basco Vazko was born in 1983 in Santiago, Chile. He currently lives and works in Santiago. â€œ So far I have been painting all of my life and I will paint as much as I can for the rest of my days. I’m not an artist or a graffiti writer or a street artist; I’m a painter. Besides a painter I’m a collector. I collect rocks, old magazines, stamps, old books, small cactuses, and other peopleâ€™s drawings. I try to keep most of what I paint to myself. With the exception of my family, I try to avoid people who have religious beliefs.” (via Juxtapoz)

‘ California based architect Sid Wichienkuer aims to reasserts architecture with his redesign for the Tu Delft School of Architecture. After the school’s tragic fire, they held an open competition for their building for Bouwkunde. Wichienkuer proposal used sections and topographies as a driving force. The building is oriented around a Central Quad at its base, surrounded by the school’s library and a series of design laboratories. As the building roses, each floor is centered around a gathering or communal space at its core, with other rooms radiating outwards. An expandable auditorium is centered on this level. The building’s facade is kept porous with a series of horizontal pieces spaced apart. These levels can be used as outdoor seating and stairs, allowing students to climb the building. ‘ (via Designboom)

Jeff McMillan was born in October of 1977 in San Jose, CA where he spent a good portion of his life, and it was during the first few years of Jeffâ€™s existence that he started trying his hand at art at the young age of 3. McMillanâ€™s influences lie heavily in 80â€™s pop culture. The artist proclaims that the decade boasted the best television programming, cartoons, toys, and movies. It was a decade of imagination and creativity during a time when the world was changing so drastically on all levels. As he continued to make use of the right side of his brain, it eventually became time for McMillan to begin the final stages of schooling. He attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco from 1999 to 2001 until he made the big move to Southern California, where he continued his schooling at the prestigious Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, CA from 2001 to 2004. He studied illustration at both schools until he graduated from the Art Center with honors. He now lives and works in Long Beach with his wonderful wife, Liv and a disobedient Siamese cat.
