Currently digging these playful pieces from New York based artist, RAE. Photos are taken by Brooklynite Gallery from spots throughout Chicago. My favorite piece is the second one, which combines sculptural elements from recycled material. It is pretty much taking a modern day version of cubism into the streets. Great choice in colors and very poppy. However, the mural is such a great piece: the Chicago Cubs roller skates and the integration of the tree? Quite a witty piece.

Looks like Lollapalooza was not the only one keeping busy preparing for the summer. While ROA participated in the creation of Lollapalooza's anniversary goodies (i.e. 2012 commemorative posters), his thirst for creative work did not end there. The excitement, just got bigger as soon as he surprised us with the wall he worked on discretely. He works at such a fast pace, yet the attention to details are not at all neglected. They are pretty intense and badass.
Keep it coming!

Bringing it back old school. Came across a huge selection of J C Leyendecker's work on a Pinterest board that I follow.
Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874-1951) was a prolific, master illustrator/artist of the American Golden Age. He is eminent for his presence in the media and lifestyle magazines of the period, summoning a 322 Saturday Evening Post covers.
His lovely depictions of sophisticated men and women has graced the lives of many enthusiasts and most importantly, artists from the next era such as Alice Cooper and Alex Ross to name a few.

At the end, we are all helpless beings and we give in to the beauty of the wilderness. Litovsky's photographic series, Whiteout, is a reminder that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
