What would it feel like to get punched in the gut by advertising, kicked in the face by pop art and thrown up on by street graffiti? A lot like looking at painting by Denver based artist Scot Lefavor. With a clear disdain for the soul of print advertising, but a love for the techniques, Scot Lefavor's style demonstrates ... continue reading
It might be a rare occasion, but if you have ever dropped your pocket knife in a pond while out camping, you know the annoyance involved in retrieving that sucker.

While it won't necessarily help you become a better poker player the Convertible Dinning Table will get rid of your first dilemma. At face value it looks ... continue reading
The collision of art and music can result in a lot of things - drug fueled trips down the yellow brick road, pools of vomit, and - occasionally - something actually worth hanging on your wall. Erika Iris Simmons art is definitely the type that you're going to want to hang on your wall at home, the office, the girlfriends, ... continue reading
Knives. Swords. Blades. Axes. If it has a blade and can - in any way - be considered a weapon, men like playing with it. It's hard-coded into our DNA like our love of boobs and fast cars. Mark Evans is an artist that makes the rest of us look like tomboys driving Power Wheels.
Evans starts with a big ass piece ... continue reading
Art Lebedev has a history of creating some really awesome products (with ridiculous names). Unfortunately, most of them never see the light of day, or are so damn expensive it's easier to justify buying yourself an iPad for every room of your house. Lebedev's Reflectius Clock could very well fall into one of those ... continue reading
There are so many things about Mos Def that represent Cool Material - Def Poetry, a room for his shoes, Boondocks - and none of that even begins to address his ridiculous musical chops (or the ones on his face for that matter). Yeah, there's collaborations with Gorillaz, Kanye, and The Roots, but Mos Def's solo ... continue reading

Mark Khaisman ditches the traditional tools of the trade like brushes and paint to create something clearly unique. Layers of tape on ... continue reading
Haroshi is an artist that - much like the rest of us - can't seem to part with a few broken items most people would feel more comfortable throwing in the dumpster than leaving in their room to take up space. In your case it might be an old watch, college poster, or even the ex's stuff - in Haroshi's it's broken ... continue reading

To quote Philip J. Fry (and make a blatant pop culture reference), "Oh wow, it's like that drug trip in that movie I saw when I was on that drug trip."
What happens when you're raised by a television set and given a paint brush? For most people, not a whole helluva lot, but for Dave MacDowell the result is a ... continue reading
Keith P. (take a guess what the P stands for) Rein is an artist doing crazy things with pop culture, naked girls, and wood (not necessarily in equal parts). While we could fill this post with dick jokes and some of his more clever plays on words (Pocahontits, anyone?), we're content to let the incredibly provocative, ... continue reading
