Carlos Huante

p p " Maybe it’s due to my heritage or growing up in the East Los Angeles area or being a born again Christian all of which make me up as an individual and an artist that the activist is in there somewhere. I feel compelled to speak of things that I read about or hear about or experience through life as artwork. The meaning of each piece is very important to me and since I use imagery sometimes metaphorically or symbolically to describe my subjects I like to attach a paragraph description to the name of each piece when it’s shown in galleries. As much as I enjoy that people appreciate the artwork, my hope is that they appreciate the meaning as well when they read it. It's the point and the reason I make this kind of artwork." - Carlos Huante p

Bacon Air Freshener

p This unlikely Bacon Air Freshener is the perfect way to brighten any carnivore's day. Put one up in the family room and everyone will have a sudden craving for a BLT. Each has a handy string for hanging and measures about 4'' tall. Check out the Bacon Soap (pictured below) too. Haha. p

Fabrizio Cosenza

p Go visit the portfolio site of artist Fabrizio Cosenza from Italy who emailed last week to show us his work. Not a lot of work on his site yet but hopefully they'll be more of these sideways headed girls up there in the future. I want to take this time to tell those lovely people who emailed me their work that haven't gotten a reply from me yet to please be patient. I am behind on my emails, but I'll catch up eventually. p

Korehiko Hino

p p p Korehiko Hino was born in Ishikawa and currently an instructor at Tama University of Fine Art. ' After graduating from the Art Studies Division of the Tsukuba University Graduate School with a specialization in Western painting, Hino has built up a solid reputation both in Japan and abroad for his depictions of expressionless human forms - difficult to make out whether they are adults or children - that embody the anxiety that all of us in the contemporary era sense in a vague, nebulous way.

Melting Building

p p This is not photoshopped. This building mural, a trompe-l'oeil, is located in Georges V Ave. in Paris, France. ' Trompe-l'oeil ' is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects really exist, instead of being just two-dimensional paintings. The name is derived from French for trick the eye, from tromper - to deceive and l'oeil - the eye. Link here. p p
