Public service announcements with a snarky and hilarious twist

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Thursday 16 October 2014

Jim Benton, one of the world’s greatest cartoonists, has created a series of public service announcements (PSAs) that ‘give back’ (if giving back means being snarky and hilarious). Benton makes sure to remind us to talk to our kids about smoking (and ‘like how pipes are a bit pretentious’), that seat belts save lives (‘one way is by choking bears’), and to fight global warming (by turning on the air conditioner and opening the windows).

The old American Frontier combined with today’s Internet slang

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Wednesday 29 January 2014

It’s probably a good thing the Internet wasn’t around during the American Frontier days. And it’s probably a good thing Internet slang dies out (it does, right?), because Shawn Huckins has made these paintings look too funny. The American __tier is a statement on both society today and 19th century America, with large white letters […]

We’ve seen anime in all shapes and forms – from cosplayers to the extreme individuals who undergo plastic surgery to resemble their favourite heroes.

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Friday 30 August 2013

The good folks of Comics Should Be Good put out a Twitter survey asking their readers which Muppets should be mashed-up with which classic superheroes. And the results were fantastic. I personally loved the idea of Animal being morphed into Wolverine. It’s so fitting!

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 15 May 2013

Do you have trouble making yourself appreciate classic art? Then these photoshopped paintings of modern celebrities are a great way to slowly ease yourself into something more classy. Wether we’ll admit it or not, most of us enjoy a good gossip magazine. So why not convince yourself that classic art is just as entertaining. Flip through […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Wednesday 1 May 2013

You can’t change the past. Or can you? Photoshop wizard Flóra Borsi has been doing for a while. Using humour and quick wit, the 19 year-old Hungarian artist puts a spin on famous black and white photographs. What would happen if Elvis Presley’s fans all had cell phones at his concerts? Well, take a look at Borsi […]

Occupy This Chair, on display last year at the Armory Show in New York. Practical, clear, simple, revolutionary. I like his stuff. Sebastian Errazuriz was featured on Lost At E Minor a while back, but that was before these signs/chairs. What ever happened to Occupy, anyway? Occupy this blog.

Sometimes people just take things a bit too far. That may be the case with David Schwen and his fabulously ridiculous What The Fork artwork. Eknife of that.

Giant Office Supplies

Kira Heuer Reader Find

By Kira Heuer in New Art on Thursday 17 February 2011

Giant office supplies add to an office space atmosphere, creating a playground rather then a space for corporate duldrums to wander aimlessly. This was originally created to separate the four sections of a London office so buyers could see each one differently. But I rather see it as a chance to feel as if we shrank. Fun!
