Top 10 Oct 9

Happy to announce that is Friday again and as usual I got a rock solid top 10 list for you to explore.

Hope You Like.


1. Kevin Cyr

Kevin Cyr was born in Edmundston, NB, Canada, in 1976 and grew up in the paper mill town of Madawaska, Maine. Cyr received his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions both nationally and internationally and also featured in New American Paintings.

He has always been interested in the industrial landscape and vehicles that have defined America. For the past couple of years, Cyr's work has been focused on vehicles he has encountered on the streets of his neighborhood as well as places he has traveled within the US and abroad. While the car remains an iconic status symbol in contemporary culture, Cyr finds beauty in derelict and unkempt vehicles, in particular, those often associated with working-class society.

3. Röyksopp 'This Must Be It'

Join Runar for some odd goings-on in the new video for 'This Must Be It' courtesy of Filip and Andreas Nilsson. The single is out on November 2nd.

Think this is the third time Andrea Nilsson been on this blog, so guess he is one of my favourite directors at the moment.

5. Patrick Hoelck

Patrick Hoelck’s photography resonates because his darkness does not hide, pervert, destroy, or malign. Instead, it emboldens, signifies, nurtures, resurrects an individual for who they are: sexuality and celebrity status are consequential of being human—of being a man or woman, actor or actress, singer or musician, model or cult personality; glamour and attitude are consequential of one’s pride and self-respect.

6. Pianotrappan

7. Roso - Light

Light: Art work commissioned by Mr Lance Clark for the Clark Shoes Art collection. It is the first phase of two, of the art work situated in the communal court yard in the heart of Clark office building.

The installation itself was developed from a single observation - light is only seen when reflected. A light beam coming through a window is only visible because light is reflected in the millions of dust particles floating in the air.

8. Alex Trochut

ALEX Trochut's illustrations, designs and typography take the modern notion of minimalism and flip it on its side. Trochut's work philosophy is "More is more." It is rich with elegant, brilliantly detailed executions that simultaneously convey indulgence and careful, restrained control. Trochut is driven by a desire to constantly evolve which can be seen in his eclectic body of work.

RENOWNED for his technically exquisite type creations and designs, Trochut attributes his special connection with typography to his grandfather Joan Trochut - a typographer and the creator of a modular typographic and ornament system built in the 40s. Alex Trochut's client's include Nike, The Rolling Stones, Nixon, British Airways, Coca-Cola, The Guardian, Non Format, Wieden + Kennedy, Saatchi and Saatchi, BBH, Fallon, and Beuatiful Decay.

TROCHUT is based in Barcelona.
