Beau Stanton

Beau Stanton | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

A painter and muralist, Stanton creates work ranging in size from tiny eye miniatures to large-scale murals ornamenting entire building facades.  The work combines classical oil painting with intricate patterns inspired by ancient architecture, letterpress ornaments, and decayed infrastructure.  In search for historical reference, Stanton begins his artistic process by exploring historic buildings and abandoned sites in the NYC area and beyond collecting photo references, Victorian ephemera, and antiquated machinery. These artifacts often appear in Stanton’s paintings as visual cogs in heavily ornamented machine-like compositions. The initial studies of these objects are then distilled into highly ornate compositions utilizing a variety of techniques including ink renderings, digital media, and screen printing. Finally, the pieces are fully rendered in delicate layers of oil paint, manipulating focus, light and perspective.

Richard Stainthorp | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

English artist Richard Stainthorp captures the beautiful energy and fluidity of the human body using wire. The life-sized sculptures feature both figures in motion and at rest, expressed in the form of large-gauged strands that are densely wrapped around and through one another. By doing this, he gives the work an undeniable presence. Stainthorp also allows the bent wires to shine by keeping their metallic appearance free from any obvious painting or additions

Demolition is a messy business—not only does the process require heavy machinery and produce clouds of dust, but it also results in giant piles of rubble that often head straight for the landfill. Omer Haciomeroglu, a student at Sweden’s Umeå Institute of Design has designed Ero – a robot that recycles concrete in an energy-efficient manner and separates it from rebar and other debris on the spot. The project won the 2013 International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in the Student Designs category.

MOJO

MOJO | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

The music institution known as MOJO debuted in the form of a magazine on the news-stands of Britain in 1993.

Its inaugural cover story was an account of the complex relationship between Bob Dylan and John Lennon. There was general amazement that the age of soundbite culture should spawn a magazine that revelled in 16-page features of uncompromising quality. Ever since, it has revelled in the stories of music’s all-time greats and recommended new music of quality and integrity: the classics of now and tomorrow.

The rough idea, in the words of founding editor Paul Du Noyer, was for something “that had the sensibilities of a fanzine and the design values of Vogue.” Its title was chosen as a homage to Delta blues mythology and as a reminder of the magic at the core of music.

Xavier Veilhan

Xavier Veilhan | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Whether he uses digital photography, sculpture, public statuary, video, installations or even the art of the exhibition, Xavier Veilhan builds his work around the same axis: the possibilities of representation. One of the most striking features of his polymorphic practice is that he treats generic objects and shapes of everyday life so that they come out smoothed, without details, and resistant to any psychological insight. Since the 1990s, bestiaries occupy a significant place in this process, and among them, penguins and rhinoceros of unnatural colours, made of painted polyester resin. The Rhinoceros (1999), made to scale, was lacquered in Ferrari red, in a way that instantly modifies the perception of the mastodon’s "body work".  In 2008, he built a to scale replica of a gleaming metal shark that was given a generic title, Shark. We often compare animals to finely tuned machines. This notion is visible in all of Xavier Veilhan’s sculptures of animals, the search of achieving perfection. Already in 1995, with The Republican Guard, he had produced a completely generic set of four mounted guards. The statues stood like real size toy figures. Veilhan’s anthropomorphic figures are archetypes reduced to the essential, prepared so as to allow the viewer to immediately project himself beyond the anecdotal. Without seeking to be a perfect copy, they manage to impose their intimidating authority over the viewer. More recently they have been given names, but there is nothing to indicate portrait as such. Even when he assembled his personal pantheon of 20th century builders, he named his monochrome sculptures, The Architects.

Los Angeles Artist Stephen Sandoval

Marooned on this planet as an infant, the work of life-long artist Stephen Sandoval has since been shaped by three adopted human passions: Science Fiction, Comic Books, and American Pop Culture of the 1960's and 1970's. 
In order to assimilate in plain sight of Earth's inhabitants, Stephen can be recognized working as an animation director on such television programs as the Emmy award-winning Futurama, Rick And Morty for Adult Swim, and Disney's Gravity Falls, where his extraterrestrial pedigree serves him well.

Gnasher

Gnasher | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Murals created by spray cans

Gnasher, Davis Nash, is an varied artist, can create anything that comes up to his mind and he produces realistic figures with an original creative twist. 
Gnasher started his graffiti carrier in 1985 in Harlow, Essex. At that time there was a growing graffiti scene with Kanz and Fuge leading the way. They had a lot of knowledge of various artist which visited Harlow. Gnasher was really impressed by the characters those guys created, therefore he saw them as his inspiration source. 

Gnasher has a good doses of humour. About his alter ego Gnasher, which was his old DJ name, he says; ‘I'm a failed house DJ. Have you ever heard of DJ Gnasher, thought not!’ He might be a failed DJ, but with his art the opposite happened. Gnasher is a really active artist who developed himself to a high level of making art. He works both as a free artist as well as commissioned. He often makes characters from movies he loved since his childhood. In these works he makes a combination of his own creativity combined with an existing image. He made a lot of murals in- and around London, but also living rooms, restaurants and events are brightened with his wonderful designs.

BONOM

BONOM | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Bonom, mysterious artist who recovers the roofs of Paris of animals and fancies in any kinds.

A striking style and an impressive productivity.

Britain has Banksy, Belgium has Bonom!

Since 2006, Bonom showcases his own impressive style: going for big, remarkable, sketch-like, fluid lines that end up in animal and skeleton drawings. For these he searches grey and basic buildings in the city centre of Brussels. Hanging from a rope he paints the night away. This gave Bonom the past years the unofficial title of a town legend.

But just like Robin Hood, this town legend got into problems. The police no longer tolerates his graffiti work on buildings. Strange if you know that nobody complained about Bonom, not even the owners of his canvases. Meanwhile Bonom received a Facebook group which disapproves his prosecution.

The group has already more than 6,000 members and, the I Love Belgium team joined.

2FACED1

2FACED1 | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

2FACED1 is a loose transnational creative collective, bound together by a mindset evolving around stereotypophobia and the view of identity as something fluid and variable with context.
A 2FACED1 emphasize similarities in the approach to traditional identity indicators rather than in the set identity indicators themselves, which also opens up for relating to other peoples struggles.

2FACED1 has an idea of a Transnational identity based on the shareability of Pop Culture in an digital world. Pop Culture is, in many aspects, a phenomenon driven out of todays market capitalist economy, but we refuse to see all of it as something trivial and dumbed-down for the masses. 

Could 2FACED1 be a platform for a collective view including as many different perspectives as possible, - when not one single person can have experienced them all? A platform for gathering strength to keep the nuanced perspective in every situation, with focus on open-mindness and understanding, but still possible to be an individual in?

Massive Attack - Angel

Massive Attack is an English musical group formed in 1988 in Bristol, consisting of Robert "3D" Del Naja and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall. Their debut album Blue Lines was released in 1991, with the single "Unfinished Sympathy" reaching the charts and later being voted the 63rd greatest song of all time in a poll by NME.1998's Mezzanine, containing "Teardrop", and 2003's 100th Windowcharted in the UK at number 1. Both Blue Lines and Mezzanine feature in Rolling Stone 's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

The group has won numerous music awards throughout their career, including a Brit Award—winning Best British Dance Act, two MTV Europe Music Awards, and two Q Awards.

They have released 5 studio albums that have sold over 11 million copies worldwide.

DJs Daddy G and Andrew Vowles and graffiti artist-turned-rapper Robert Del Naja met as members of partying collective The Wild Bunch. One of the first homegrown soundsystems in the UK, The Wild Bunch became dominant on the Bristol club scene in the mid-1980s.

Massive Attack started as a spin-off production trio in 1988, with the independently released song, "Any Love", sung by falsetto-voiced singer-songwriter Carlton McCarthy, and then, with considerable backing from Neneh Cherry, they signed to Circa Records in 1990 – committing to deliver six studio albums and a "best of" compilation. Circa became a subsidiary of, and was later subsumed into, Virgin Records, which in turn was acquired by EMI. Blue Lines (1991), was co-produced by Jonny Dollar and Cameron McVey, who also became their first manager. Geoff Barrow, who went on to form Portishead, was an intern and trainee tape operator at Bristol's Coach House studio when the album was recorded.[12] McVey(credited at the time as 'Booga Bear') and his wife, Neneh Cherry provided crucial financial support and in-kind assistance to the early careers of Massive Attack, Portishead and Trickyduring this period, even paying regular wages to them through their Cherry Bear Organisation. Massive Attack used guest vocalists, interspersed with Del Naja and Marshall's (initially Tricky's) own sprechgesang stylings, on top of what became regarded as an essentially British creative sampling production; a trademark sound that fused down-tempo hip hop, soul,reggae and other eclectic references, musical and lyrical.

In the nineties, the trio became known for often not being able to easily get along with one another and working increasingly separately. Andy Vowles (Mushroom), who had once thought of himself as the trio's musical director, acrimoniously left Massive Attack in late 1999, after an ultimatum from the other two members to end the group immediately if he did not. Despite having taken Del Naja's side in the effective firing of Vowles and then participating in a show-of-unity webcast as a duo the following year, Grant Marshall (G) had also effectively left by 2001 in that he abandoned the studio altogether. Marshall returned to a studio role in 2005, having joined the touring line-up in 2003/4.
