Damien Hirst “Forgotten Promises”

1:16 pm in art,art events dustin hostetler

I’d like to think I’ve always been somewhat indifferent to Damien Hirst. I like that he makes mass produced, somewhat affordable artifacts for the world, and I hate that he prices some of his work so high that he’s the only one that can afford to buy it. That said & claims of plagiarism aside, Damien Hirst is an incredible showman.

His new show in Hong Kong is no exception, and really speaks to me. I love the starkness of the display, almost like a science exhibit. His repetition of themes is constantly evolving, and the new baby skull covered in diamonds, plus the addition of the fetal skeleton with angel wings is awesome.

I’m no art historian, and I don’t know shit about the gallery world but if I was rich, I’d buy a Hirst original.

You’ve got to hand it to Justin Wallis… he really is into cutesy japanese inspired illustrations. Someone has to do it, and he does it well.

Mark Rubenstein’s Photography

10:01 pm in photography dustin hostetler

In this instagram world we currently live in, where everyone is a photographer, it’s great to remind yourself what a really good photo actually looks like. Mark Rubenstein has some solid examples in his portfolio. I love the mood he sets with lighting.
