Above are several new paintings by Brad Kunkle (Previously on Supersonic) who uses gold leaf and silver to create transformative paintings which change as light hits them differently or the viewer moves around the room, sometimes resulting in a three dimensional quality to the work.
Frida Kahlo, The Diary Of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait (via versteur)
the guardian imagines what historical figures might look like today. my personal favourite is shakespeare, reincarnated as a shoreditch hipster.

"I’m going to subvert the whole, like, narrative ideal by telling you upfront that these two, like, teenagers are going to fall in love and die, and then do it. So there’s no more hiding in the words. Stark, yeah? And then, I think I’ll hide a sonnet in their big scene together, right? It’ll be subversive, because only, you know, people who are up on sonnets will get it…..what? No, she’s thirteen—a little edgy but that’s art, man. Art.”
i am loving hipster shakespeare
This explains so much. Hipster Shakespeare drank too many experimental microbrews one night:
"Will, we need this bit done, buddy. We’ve got rehearsal in ten minutes."
"Shit, I dunno. Uh. Exit."
"Exit, pursued by a bear."
"Will, come on."
"I think I left my LUNGS in that bucket, Robbie, okay? Exit, pursued by a bear. It’s surrealism. Man versus wild. Whatever. Get me a Gatorade and a shit ton of Advil, and maybe I can work out what I’m going to do with the statue."
to me he’ll always be the stodgy hard-working screenwriter out to make money by doing something he likes — it just so happens that he ends up producing this stuff that people go crazy for centuries later. and a failed actor! so maybe a bit vain.
