performed and interpreted almost in its exclusivity by african-americans, in which they were described. Most of the attitudes and enviroments related to the world of the illicit businesses, sex and violence inside the american cities. This thematics were in many cases produced with a strong resentment for the racism, prevailing in large part of the u.s. territory. The blaxpoitation emerged. Prostitutes and pimps, drug traffikers or corrupt detectives became main characters in films in which the seventies aesthetics shone in all its splendour: Shirts with large collars, oxford trousers and platform shoes, all that adorned with funk, disco, jazz and soul music.
Each year, iF International Forum Design GmbH organizes one of the world's most celebrated and valued design competitions: the iF DESIGN AWARD. Recognized as a symbol of design excellence around the world, the iF DESIGN AWARD welcomes over 5,000 submissions from 70 countries every year.
1953: Germany was still struggling to overcome the impact of the Second World War, at home and abroad. A group of industry representatives led by Philip Rosenthal met with the Hannover Trade Fair company (Hannover Messe). Their aim was to draw attention to particularly well-designed industrial products. In doing so, they wanted to communicate the importance of design and all it can achieve: for users, for brands and for societies. A new image for German products began to take shape. Fitting then that the resulting association was first known as 'Die gute Industrieform e.V.’ (Good Industrial Form). The name Industrie Forum (or iF for short) came later. This was the start of a symbol of design excellence that is recognized to this day – the iF logo. As the original movement looked back to the Bauhaus and its concept of ‘good form’ – a combination of ethical and aesthetic qualities – so too the iF DESIGN AWARD has long become a symbol for excellent form, for aesthetic quality, and for user-focused, ergonomic and efficient design in all disciplines, by companies around the world.
Cuong Nguyen's ability to highlight the beauty in the world around him is something that informs his art as well as his perspective. One might say that he represents the opposite of the tortured artist cliché: despite the fact that his formative years in Vietnam were characterized by significant hardship, his sometimes romantic and sometimes mysterious portraits and still life paintings reflect his positive outlook and determination to persevere.

Louise Ingram Rayner (21 June 1832 – 8 October 1924) was a British watercolour artist.
Rayner was born in Matlock Bath in Derbyshire. Her parents Samuel Rayner and Ann Rayner (née Manser) were both noted artists, Samuel having been accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy when he was 15. Four of Louise's sisters — Ann ("Nancy"), Margaret, Rose and Frances — and her brother Richard were also artists. The family lived in Matlock Bath and Derby until 1842 when they moved to London.
Rayner studied painting from the age of fifteen, at first with her father and later with established artist friends of the family such as George Cattermole, Edmund Niemann, David Roberts and Frank Stone. Her first exhibited work, an oil painting entitled The Interior of Haddon Chapel, was shown at the Royal Academy in 1852, the first of a series of oils.
From 1860, however, her medium was watercolour, which she exhibited for over 50 years through organisations including the Society of Lady Artists, The Royal Academy, Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of British Artists. Irongate - from 1865 (now in Derby Museum and Art Gallery)
She lived in Chester in the county of Cheshire but travelled extensively, painting British scenes, during the summers in the 1870s and 1880s. Her paintings are very detailed and highly picturesque populated street scenes capturing the "olde worlde" character of British towns and cities in the booming Victorian period. Her paintings are very popular today as prints and on jigsaw puzzles. Around 1910 she moved with her sister to Tunbridge Wells, and later to St Leonards, where she died in 1924.
Rayner's work is represented in the collections of at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, Bournemouth, Derby Museum and Art Gallery and the Grosvenor Museum, Chester, which possesses 23 of her watercolours, the largest in any public collection.
Jaune is a stencil artist and urban interventionist from Brussels, Belgium. His work is based on the paradox between the visible and the invisible, with sanitation workers the main protagonists in his humorous installations and paintings - an idea that was born from his own experience working in the profession. Despite performing an important public service in garish fluorescent clothing, he observed that they existe in the background of our urban environment, becoming almost invisible to the average person. It was in 2011 that he decided to free these characters from their roles by symbolically placing them in ever more absurd and whimsical scenarios in and around the city streets. Those who were supposed to keep the world tidy have become harbingers of chaos.

Matthias has been tinkering in woodworking since he was a child, with unrestricted access to his father's workshop, permitted to use power tools unsupervised from a young age (which would make most parents cringe these days).
During his engineering work at Canadian-based Research in Motion, he continued building wooden contraptions as a hobby, eventually adding a woodworking component to his personal website. "I noticed it was doing well, so I decided to expand on that a bit and make a separate website. It's grown quite a bit since," he said. In fact, it's grown so much that he "retired" from his work at RIM to focus on his passion. "It's a good way to pass the time, and it's satisfying to have an audience." All of Matthias' creations arise from his home workshop, and when it comes to birthing ideas, not everything is instantly conceptualized.
"Usually, it's scratching an itch. Most designs gestate for a long time before I even sketch anything on paper. That is, I keep thinking about the problem and how it could be solved before I actually start. The pantorouter was unusual in that I made a major design change as I was experimenting. Usually, I have the concept pretty much worked out in advance." If he's trying out a new concept, he starts with wood. If it's something he's certain will work, he goes straight to making a CAD model. But a lot of his work is actually improved versions of his previous work.
Born in Switzerland in 1961, Leutwyler is a self-taught photographer with a stubborn streak and unflappable love for the medium. “My grandfather and father were both printers. I decided not to follow their path, instead to travel and photograph, soaking up color and culture from around the world. After being rejected by one of Switzerland’s best photography schools, I opened my own photo studio in Lausanne, photographing cheese, chocolates and watches and went bankrupt in a year-and-a-half.” In 1985, Leutwyler moved to Paris where he apprenticed with photographer Gilles Tapie and rapidly established himself as an editorial photographer. A decade later, Leutwyler moved to New York City. Today, Leutwyler’s celebrity portraits can be found in the pages of Vogue, Vanity Fair, the New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Esquire Magazine and Time. He has photographed the likes of Michelle Obama, Julia Roberts, Tom Wolfe, Iggy Pop, Rihanna and Martin Scorsese to name a few. Often spare and unflinchingly tight, Leutwyler’s photographs are a quiet yet striking rebuttal to today’s hyper retouched and uber stylized images. “There’s a whole new vocabulary surrounding photography that I find quite vulgar. For me, it’s not about ‘shooting’ and sensationalism,” he says. “It’s a magic moment that happens in the first few minutes of a sitting. Revealing something from out of my subjects that isn’t obvious — finding the beauty within.”

What’s more, they’re available to listen to for free. As you might expect from someone with such a username, the playlists include a whole load of esoteric gems and less heralded tracks, from the dawn of the Beastie Boys in 1995 right through to… erm, Afroman in 2000. If it’s some East Coast vintage you’re looking for then check out 1993 when A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang Clan dropped their best albums, or perhaps rewind it back a year and head to the West Coast as G-funk mushroomed thanks to Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. Check out the collection below, and then fast forward to the current day with Future’s latest track, “That’s a Check,” featuring none other than The Boss, Rick Ross.

Masami Akita (秋田 昌美 Akita Masami, born December 19, 1956), better known by his stage name Merzbow (メルツバウ Merutsubau?), is a Japanese noise musician. He is best known for his style of harsh, confrontational noise exemplified on his 1996 release, Pulse Demon. Since 1980, he has released over 400 recordings. The name Merzbow comes from the German dada artist Kurt Schwitters' artwork Merzbau, in which Schwitters transformed the interior of his house using found objects. The name was chosen to reflect Akita's dada influence and junk art aesthetic. In addition to this, Akita has cited a wide range of musical influences from progressive rock, heavy metal, free jazz, and early electronic music to non-musical influences like dadaism, surrealism, and fetish culture. Since the early 2000s, he has been inspired by animal rights and environmentalism, and has become a vegan. As well as being a prolific musician, he has been a writer and editor for several books and magazines in Japan, and has written several books of his own. He has written about a variety of subjects, mostly about music, modern art, and underground culture. His more renowned works were on the topics of BDSM and Japanese bondage. Other art forms Akita has been interested in include painting, photography, filmmaking, and Butoh dance. In 2000, Extreme Records released the 50 CD box set known as the Merzbox. Akita's work has been the subject of several remix albums and at least one tribute album. This, among other achievements, has helped Merzbow to be regarded by some as the "most important artist in noise"
