Gallery Mondays: Broken Blue Angry Birds Vase @ Hofstra’s Emily Lowe Gallery

angry birds art

Feast your eyes on a broken vase from an exhibit called Past Traditions/New Voices in Asian Art, showcased at Hofstra University’s Emily Lowe Gallery during the fall of 2014.

The exhibit was a mixture of the old and the new (as the name of the exhibition suggests), with pieces ranging from a canvas of mock Chinese calligraphy (which was actually written in a Latin alphabet), to Ai Weiwiei’s “Grapes.”

Oh, and if you were wondering about the drawings on the vase then yes, those are definitely Angry Birds.

I couldn’t help thinking about a parallel universe where someone sling shot an Angry Bird at a vase, inspiring Jiha Moon‘s broken ceramic vase.

Fan Art Fridays: The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye)

Why is The Weeknd’s hair always 50 Shades of Cray?

I was just catching up on some music news when I found out that he’s been hiding details about an album release. Looks like someone at iTunes New Zealand couldn’t keep a secret

So apparently we can expect a new album from The Weeknd called Beauty Behind the Madness on August 28th, but that hasn’t officially been confirmed.

Please don’t get me all excited for nothing.

This piece of fan art was found on Twitter. What will it take for him to go back to the hairstyle featured on bust number one in row two?

Effie Trinket, may I have your footwear?

If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, books, films or both, you need to go see the exhibition at Discovery Times Square in New York City. Pronto.

This piece of art can be found in the gift shop at the end of the maze-like, self-guided tour.

I have no clue when the exhibition is closing, but you can reserve tickets to see it here.

 

Fan Art Fridays: Ken of ‘Magic Mike,’ Played by Matt Bomer

There’s our little Ken doll.

It’s Independence Day weekend in the United States. Magic Mike XXL graced theaters on July 1st.

Some of us will distract ourselves with loud fireworks, others complaining about the loud fireworks …

And then there are those that will torture themselves with Mr. Blue eyed Ken, a.k.a. Matt Bomer.

Or Mike Lane (Channing Tatum).

And don’t forget Richie, (Sofia Vergara’s soon to be husband).

Let’s try to control ourselves in the theater this weekend.
