Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]
Bradford Kessler’s cut-out panels coated in a paint-like sealant called hydroflex are not quite paintings or sculptures. Neither do they seem to be of the crowd that questions the nature of painting using sculptural methods (to name a few practitioners: Jacob Kassay, Nathan Green, Lisa Sigal, and Kenji Fujita). So what are they? They are weird and maybe boring, but boring in a way that hangs out at the edge of one’s consciousness for days. They are like a child’s bed set, retired to th... [more]
Cartoons aren’t just for kids and Frederator Studios founder Fred Seibert knows that for sure. Like a mad scientist, Seibert shaped the DNA of cartoons today. From assisting the launch of MTV to developing a short film program at Hanna-Barbera, the producer is as culturally savvy as he is dedicated to the art of animation. Today the studio has produced 16 series and over 200 animated short films that have launched shows including The Fairly OddParents, Fanboy & Chum Chum, and Adventure Time.

Some see curators as being too distant from the practice of art, or even worse, as "curating friends," but we at ArtSlant see another pervasive trend at work: the artist-curator. Due to financial and spatial restra... [more]

Right now, my favorite London-based fashion blogger, Susie Bubble, is on holiday in Santa Monica. “Is it Blackpool? Great Yarmouth? No it's Santa Monica,” she writes.

Milan, Jul. 2014: It happened by chance. About two months ago I heard about the new donation of a work of art to the permanent collection of the Museum of XX Century Art in Milan: the piece was a sculpture by Italian artist Amalia Del Ponte. Her name was totally new to me. Curious, I peeked into her resume—some solo exhibitions in a few Milan galleries, especially in the 70s and the 80s, and the First Prize for Sculpture at the São Paulo Biennale in 1973. How do you feel?, the work a... [more]
Art is what makes life more interesting than art.
Sometime last fall, in a moment beyond reason, I took a two-hour bus ride to pick up a pair of $89 shoes that were then sale for $14.99 at a Zara near the Santa Monica pier. The bus ride was my penance for the deal, an enactment of the masochistic conflation of time with money. I read Chris Kraus' Where Art Belongs on the 704 as it lurched the long stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard, jotting crooked notes along the way,... [more]
Greetings one and all!
I’m almost halfway through my residency, and right on time, I’m really feeling themes emerge in my “research,” (which is less formal research and more a combinations of conversations, impressions and observations.) I’ve met some amazing women who’ve shared with me a wide range of their experiences. French women, Americans married to Frenchmen, Americans not married to Frenchmen, people who’ve been here for years, and those who&rsquo... [more]
