golucho artwork by lawrence yang Artist Bio: Lawrence Yang wrestles with informational abstractions by day and paints by night. Influenced by graffiti art and traditional Chinese painting, he employs ink, marker, and watercolor, as the permanence of this media adds a sense of immediacy to his work. Lawrence's paintings make use of color to communicate atmosphere and emotion, and they are concerned primarily with creating order out of chaos (and vice versa). Interview: Thanks to my buddy Jonny Kloberdanz at hearsee.com, you can now take a deeper look at what's going on in my studio and in my head when I'm painting. FAQs: Q: I'd like to purchase a print or a print! Q: I'm doing a report on you for school, where can I find more information? Q: Can you help me design a tattoo? Q: Can my band use your artwork in an album cover? Questions / comments / suggestions? All work © Lawrence Yang 2009
Vermibus Over-consumption and the unchecked use of our natural resources to serve that consumption, is wreaking havoc on our environment and on our minds. Our unabated need for the latest products and ideas leaves us only wanting more, at the expense of the world around us. Fueling this unchecked desire is a commercial media whose goal is the promotion of more consumption through every outlet known. Newspapers, Magazines, Television, the Internet, and even the Public Space that we collectively share, all serve to promote our desire for more. In an effort to examine the issue of over-consumption, “Buy Nothing Day” began in 1992 by artist Ted Dave, and participants were asked to refrain from purchasing goods for 24hrs. 22 years later this single act of defiance has grown into a worldwide movement that now takes place in 65 countries and includes thousands of participants. All fotages were sent by the activists. Video: Xar LeeProducer: VermibusVoice: Desi IvanovaSound Engineer: Elliot German

Jerome Lagarrigue Adriana de Barros Follow @Scene360: Magic worlds of Russian Dali - Vladimir Kush Scroll down to see more vladimirkush.com Vladimir Kush was born in Moscow in 1965 in a small wooden house with carved windows and a private cherry orchard not far from Moscow's famous Sokolniki Park. Although Vladimir's father, Oleg Konstantinovich Kush, is a mathematician, the entire male half of the family was fond of painting. And Vladimir was no exception. His "career" as an artist began aged three years, when he learned to hold a pencil, while sitting on his pop's lap. At the age of seven, in addition to elementary school, Vladimir started going to art classes, where he would stay until late in the evening. Art school gave Vladimir the freedom to create. At 17, Vladimir Kush entered the Stroganov Academy, but a year later was called up for compulsory army service. In 1990, together with two other Russian artists, he exhibited his work in Coburg, Germany, to public acclaim. Here, on the island of Maui, which became his home, Vladimir finally found himself as an artist.
