Space Invader, an artist who’s work I noticed as I was coming into paris from the expressway last trip and then my friend explained to me that he was an artist. Yesterday I saw his work around the Sacré Coeur church and I thought you should know about it since he has done it in many cities but not in Miami…

His work consist of illegal mosaics using the icons of the popular Space Invaders video game of the 80’s. He has a website and a newsletter telling you where the last intervention happened. go> space-invaders.com

He also has a whole developed philosophy about why he does it and many other articles that can be found on his wikipedia page english french

Here are so far the ones I have seen personally… >>

Palais de Tokyo

FIVE BILLION YEARS

I thought I should give you all a little gift from the artworks I saw at Palais de Tokyo in Paris last November in a exhibition entitled Five Billion Years. The video podcast is of the works I could actually record… some were so experimental that the lighting conditions were impossible. This exhibition had local artist Mark Handforth and the actual video has artists I found to be excellent and brought a hmmm/smile to my face.

Here is the beginning of the exhibition’s statement:
5,000,000,000 YEARS is an exhibition that places itself within the FIVE BILLION YEARS chapter by way of a mutation. Synonymous yet clearly dissimilar, the exhibition and the program-chapter that contains it create an endless feedback loop, each one mutating as it transfers back into the other. read the rest here.(once there, scroll down for the English version)

In this days of irony where I have to see cubans living in france and spain talking about Fidel Castro as if he was the best thing that happened to cubans, I have to say FUCK ALL of YOU with your narrow vision of geopolitics.

Perrotin’s Disgrace

December 13, 2006By pablogtBlogt, podcast No Comments

Here cool guy Dig explains during Art Basel 2006 in this podcast about Perrotin’s latest show statement with riches in which artists Elmgreen & Dragset’s piece entitled Disgrace showcases a moving vehicle. Also this work reminds me of Beltrand Lavier‘s black piano and red ferrari carefully painted in every detail. This might be a less worked miami moving version of Lavier’s work. I think the statement of old car cover with oil, feathers and a maid all together is clear.

Art hole

Revolutionary, originally uploaded by pablogt.

Lately I have this song on my head… by CSS, art bitch is revolutionary. I like it… suck my art hole is one part of the lyrics, I am not sure exactly why it makes me dream of art girls, I like what it she says during this song, maybe there is a double meaning to the words, etc.. Listen to it and support the artists by buying their cd. (ps: my girl did already) Cansei de Ser Sexy

Art Basel Withdraw

Now that all the noise and glitter is gone, all that is left is a empty feeling of disassociation with this career of being an artist. It is as if the art basel drug was missing. My yearly fix is over and it seems that all that is left now is waiting for next year’s show. Even when my head is more in other important ideas at this point, I kind of wish that art basel lasted longer than four days, it would allow for more thought-artwork process.
