Sylvia Ji

Sylvia's gorgeously creepy paintings are brimming with a mixture of sexual provocation and consternation. Images of beautiful women resembling Marie Antoinette in Día de los Muertos face paint. Miss Ji’s interest in art was implanted at a very young age when she would look through her mother’s sketchbooks and watch her father paint. In her art, she explores themes of beauty, sexual provocation, and social notions of femininity, juxtaposed against the dystopian reality of modern cities to create highly charged paintings of women. Some of her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting beauty. She graduated with distinction in 2005 from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco with a Bachelors in Illustration and had her first ambitious and successful solo show while still in her last year of school. Since then she has been in high demand, keeping continuously engaged in an onslought of numerous shows on the West Coast.

BLU in Bogota, Columbia

Artist Blu shows off his latest and greatest street piece in the streets of Bogota, Columbia. As witty as ever, both mural sized artworks showcase a socially conscience theme with the drug/death references. Both were put in place for “Memoria Canalla”. Definitely another great installation for one of the more well-respected street artists in the scene.

Maggie Taylor, weird figurative sculpture and misc.

The Shroud of Turin is a Print

Spot the difference: Negative images of the Shroud of Turin (left) and a modern replica made by scientists.

The news is out. Professor Garlaschelli of the University of Pavia, has used “materials and print technologies available in the middle ages” to reproduce the Shroud of Turin. For this experiment a student’s body was covered with a cloth and then rubbed with red ochre to make the transfer of information from the body’s surface, basically an indirect method of gyotaku (also known as fish printing). Some artificial aging and holes added for affect and the scientist had made a print that he claims proves this well loved and revered relic to be fake.

Light Graffiti (AK)

Daniel Schwartz is a sophomore at Penn who moonlights as a light graffiti artist.

It's interesting to note that Picasso and Photographer Gjon Mili experimented with this back in the 40's. These are from 1949.
