Tes One

Combining traditional and non-traditional techniques, Leon "Tes One" Bedore creates works of art that contrast nature with technology, grime with grace. Allowing himself to find beauty in the mundane, he is able to juxtapose rejected landscapes with figurative illustrations, all the while identifying what is common between the conversing elements.

Taking Tree: limited edition prints from Tes One

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Art on Wednesday 3 July 2013

Originally a painting made in 2006, the relevance of Taking Tree seems to only grow larger in the void that individual privacy once filled. As the debate over why and if these actions are necessary rages on, remain mindful of who provides you information, and who takes it. A limited run of 50 Taking Tree archival […]

Last year I had the pleasure of exhibiting alongside two artists that I’ve been a fan of for years, Kai and Sunny.

Adobe Kuler App let’s you make colour combinations from anything

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in Tech on Tuesday 2 July 2013

Discovering great colour combinations is always inspiring and helpful in my work. My phone is filled with countless photos of random objects, with the soul purpose of capturing the colours for later reference. Thanks to Adobe, colour hunting is now a whole lot easier. Adobe Kuler app allows you to extract and capture colour themes […]

Stand Our Ground poster by Tes One

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Design on Friday 30 March 2012

Laws should be designed to protect the innocent, the unarmed, the child walking back home from the corner store. Florida’s Stand Your Ground law does the opposite by giving license to any aggressor with a gun, and allowing them to claim self-defense as their reasoning to shoot and kill another person.

Tes One print of Ice Cube for RareInk

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Design on Saturday 18 June 2011

A few months ago, I was commissioned by RareInk, a company joining fine art and recording artists for charitable causes, to create an illustration of Ice Cube for their initial launch. The opportunity was of interest to me since Ice Cube’s music had been part of the soundtrack to my formative teenage years. I remember a friend of mine letting me borrow the cassette of Amerikkka’s Most around Eighth grade. I think I still have it.

By Tes One in New Art on Tuesday 1 June 2010

Having already been a fan of Alicia Ross’s work, I’ve since had the pleasure of becoming friends with her over the past few years. Her friendly persona amplifies the contrast in her intricate embroidery of remixed, provocative compositions. Her ongoing Motherboard Series is a beautiful example of her work and a breath of fresh air […]

Pogo’s naughty haughty awesome video remixes

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in Video on Monday 31 May 2010

Pogo is a young DJ from Australia that creates beautiful music out of small clips of mainstream movies. While video remixes are not exactly new, Pogo’s approach is rather unique — and produces new, full audio and video compositions that redefine ‘remix’. I am very excited by the creations of Pogo, and his stance in […]

Ales ‘Bask’ Hostomsky

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Art on Friday 21 May 2010

Bask is a beast. His ability to find the potential in discarded panels, doors, and signs, are just one of the many layers incorporated into his work. He’s developed his own brand of social commentary by abducting safe, iconic imagery, and using them to address anything from personal obstacles to social epidemics.

Edward Rondthaler

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Design on Friday 21 May 2010

Unfortunately, I only became familiar with Edward Rondthaler after his passing last year, but his incredible contributions to typography (one of the founding members of the International Typeface Corporation) and crusade to fight illiteracy through spelling reform of the English language will continue to live on. House Industries shot a video of Rondthaler giving a […]

Session 9

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Film on Friday 21 May 2010

People that know me know that I love scary movies. People that know me well, know that a movie called Session 9 ranks high on my list of favorites. It premiered as a very limited release back in 2001, and is still heavily overlooked. The plot centers around an asbestos removal team assigned to clean […]

Emily Wells’ Symphony 1: In the Barrel of a Gun

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in Video on Friday 21 May 2010

A friend sent me a few videos of Emily Wells performing and I was instantly hooked. Her innovative sound, made from a violin, toy instruments, and digital loops, is a new frontier in music. Unlike experimental music for the sake of being different, Emily’s sound radiates soul and purpose. Watching her perform Symphony 1: In the Barrel of a Gun [above], is what first got me. And her cover of Biggie’s Juicy [below] is simply amazing.

Joey Clay

Tes One Contributor

By Tes One in New Photography on Friday 21 May 2010

Joey Clay is the photography studio of James Clay Whittinghill, an incredibly talented photographer able to capture what’s real within every subject he points his camera at. James’ latest exhibition, Shade of Street, is a demonstration of his unique perspective on the world around him. And he’s a sick music producer, too. Hopefully, he’ll start sharing that side of his talent as well.
