Can’t help but chuckle at this hate mail project by London based artist Mr Bingo.
It all began on one drunken night back in 2011 when he tweeted “I will send an offensive postcard to the first person to reply to this message,” and a new Internet art project emerged. Hate Mail invites strangers to pay for a one off piece of art in the form of an offensive postcard addressed to them (or whoever they ordered it for). GENIUS!
Brett: What are you up to this arvo?
Kilian: Might freebalance on top of 3 skateboards in an art gallery.
Brett: Ummm, Yeah! Me too… isn’t eveybody these days?

The Duke Of Lancaster is an abandoned ship off the North Wales coast which has been brought back to life after being covered in intricate street art. The hull of the rusting ship has been used as a blank canvas by a host of international graffiti artists. Turning the ship into a floating art installation was the brainchild of former street artist Maurice Blunt, who spotted the Duke Of Lancaster from a train. Seeing its potential Maurice tracked down the owners and proposed her unique idea for transforming the forgotten vessel. Check out the rad film of it being painted below.
Mark Whalen (aka Kill Pixie) was invited to present a painting for Michael Jordan’s surprise 50th birthday party at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Such an awesome opportunity and a rad piece of art!
What’s a better way to celebrate hump day – and one of our fantastic artists Timba Smits birthday – then with this illustrated piece from the man himself. With two amazing sunglass releases from the collaboration, the ‘Wooden Toy‘ (now at its 1000 piece limit!) and the ‘Xrays‘, we’re anticipating exciting things ahead!
Super cool work from Diane Meyer whose process includes obscuring photographs by combining cross-stich embroidery to her photography. In doing so she forms a pixelated version of the underlying image. Digital meets tradition.
