Damien Hirst x Requiem Exhibition

April 29, 2009

I love artist Damien Hirst and his artwork. I especially enjoy his more famous formaldehyde animal installations as well as his colorful “Spin” stlye paintings. Check out some of his artwork below that is found at the Requiem.

Damien Hirst

Last weekend saw the Damien Hirst’s first grand spectacle of 2009 when his daunting career retrospective “Requiem”opened at the Pinkchuk Art Center in the unlikely city of Kiev, Ukraine, which is not exactly known as an epicenter of fine art.

However, resident steel billionaire and obsessed Hirst collector Victor Pinchuk aims to change that by launching the epic visual spectacle that includes over 100 works, which mainly came from Pinchuk’s private collection, by the British artist from 1998 – 2008 in his own privately funded art palace that holds the title as the largest private museum in the former Soviet Union. The fact that this grandiose show of power comes at a time when the Ukraine is especially compromised economically as a result of the crippling global economic downturn seems to only heighten the poignancy of the show which includes a great number of pieces overtly—and quite graphically—devoted to the theme of the perverse effects of money and power.

Click below for some of Hirst’s work, it is amazing.

Nike Air Toki TZ

April 29, 2009

I get down with Nike. They do provide some of the illest shoes ever, especially high tops. These Nike Air Toki TZ’s go hard, especially since Nike switched out their leather to canvas. I love these pair of shoes because they are so simple, yet so dope. I love the all white sole with the all grey canvas upper.

Nike Air Toki TZ

Switching out their previous perforated leather offerings, for a canvas finish, Nike hits us with a look into the Air Sabaku/Blazer hybrid known as the Air Toki TZ. These Nikes are featured in two Spring-friendly colorways including a tonal light grey and pastel yellow offset by green accenting. Both are now available through atmos Japan although a worldwide roll-out should be expected soon.

Converse x John Varvatos

April 29, 2009

These are some pretty dope Converse, in my opinion. Low tops are beginning to really grow on me and I think that this is a pair of low tops that happen to be on the top of my list. The simplistic feel to these Converse mixed with the slip of effect mixed with the pointed toe equals a great pair of low top sneakers. I love ’em, especially the the white and cream colorway.Converse x John Varvatos

As part of their on-going collaboration with John Varvatos, Converse presents a nice new silhouette, the CVO Wingtip Slip. This low top sneaker comes without laces and has a slightly more pointy toe box than your usual pair of Converse sneakers. This sneaker comes in two canvas/suede versions and is now available here.

Nike x Fragment Design

April 29, 2009

As you know, I love Nike. And since Nike is releasing their new fragment design Noise t-shirts, I had to post about them. I love the design on t-shirts. They are so simple, yet speak volumes, no pun intended. If you know anything about me, I appreciate people speaking their mind, or, making noise. So, make noise.

Noise

The much anticipated collaboration between Nike Sportswear and fragment design on the “Noise” t-shirts has been released. The idea is simple, yet strong and nicely plays with the signature Nike logo. Some people might need a second look to even realize that it does not say Nike. A small fragment logo is printed below the neck on the back. The t-shirt comes in a series of colorways and is now available at Nike Sportswear retailers.
