This collaboration may seem like deja vu to some, that is because Daniel Arsham, famed contemporary New York artist created the Future Relics eroded Porsche 992-series 911 which was at Selfridges for its Christmas campaign in 2019, but this is different in so many ways.
Now he has been working with Porsche again to re-imagine a 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo. This time spending two years poring over every single element, researching, developing and production.
From the off-set, the car isn’t as crazy as the Future Relics 992, treated to a new white paint job, hand painted decals and livery influenced by a Porsche 935 K3 race car that raced at Le Mans and sponsored by Apple Computers. The Fuchs rims produced by Fifteen52 pay homage to those fitted to the 1974 RSR albeit with crosshatched Arsham Studio monogram.
Inside, the designer has had more to play with, using two tones of Objects For Living’s heavyweight stonewashed canvas and premium Italian leather specs by Porsche. There is also a bespoke Arsham steering wheel and hand-painted, bespoke JDM gauges to complement the look.
What about the engine? Well, it was fully restored, piston bore was enlarged and certain parts were powder coated in Arsham Studio Green, it is relatively standard.
Pop art is back in a big way. LEGO has designed a selection of sets that celebrate pop art and go from being a toy to a piece of art that can be displayed. Think Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles, Star Wars and Marvel Universe characters that you can build out of LEGO and display as art in your home or office.
Each of the four sets include a signature tile unique to the set that is worthy of any true work of art, and a new hanging element to make them easy to hang up and switch around. Each of these sets also come with their own soundtrack to help fully immerse yourself during the relaxing build process as according to research over 73% of adults search for ways to relax. If your artistic juices flow during the process, each of these sets can be reimagined in a number of different ways.
The LEGO Art sets measure over 40 cm and contain between 2,933 and 3,395 pieces. They will be made available from August 1st for most of the world while Americans can order theirs from September 1st with prices at £114.99.
Whenever i am bored mainly in lectures i tend to procrastinate, and the best tool for that is stumbleupon.
I came across this cool video of artists creating paintings by simply pouring paint in the same spot over and over again until it sets and creates beautiful modern art. It is a time lapse video and in the background you can see some of the other paintings/sculptures they have created.
Not all art needs to be kept on a canvas.
