Asian American pop culture magazine Giant Robot is hitting the streets with some heat. Street artist Buff Monster and 49 of his friends have come together and created something huge. If you like Munnys, Dunnys, and other customizable figures then The Monster Within is for you. Buff asked his pals to customize 3-inch figurines based on his work. Each figurine has its own inspiration interpreted by each individual artist. Its interesting to see how the artists involved interpreted Buff’s work.

Say Cheese! We all remember the days when snapping pictures with Polaroids was the hip way to go. Every one of us has spend 60 second of out life anxious to see how our instant picture was going to turn out. Thanks to The Impossible Project and Photojojo we can relive those days. The two companies have teamed up to sell some limited edition Rainbow SX-70 OneStep Polaroid Cameras. Cool right? What makes it even cooler is the fact that the cameras rare and limited. The 50 cams being put up for sale were made between 1977 and 1982. I wasn’t even born yet!
The sale starts on June 24th, 2010 and only available at Photojojo! Stand in the e-line now folks. These cameras are going to fly off the shelves!
We all like to see out fellow chicas making moves right? Exactly. Now, it looks like we have a lady on the rise down in Knoxville, Tennessee. She’s the artsy type, and therefore a great feature for Art Radar. Katie Pilgrim is her name and she’s taken art into her own hands. How do you ask? She started an art collective called Lifted Lab. The Lab consists of 6 visual artists: Bigfoot, Lifter Baron, BerkVisual, Infamous Jean Claude, Grifter, and Zach Widgren. This band of 6 has the art game covered. Their genres range from street to contemporary and they’re making quite a name for themselves. As a matter of fact, they’ll be displaying their work in Brooklyn next week with their art show and after party Future Beast 2030AD. So for all of you art lovers who think the South is only deep fried food and bootie music, stop by the exhibit and peep what Lifted Lab has to offer.

Insa and Inkie are back! The dynamic duo has finished their voyage of painting the streets of 4 major European cities in 4 different countries in 7 days! Whoo! I can tell by the pictures it was quite a trip. Since Insa and Inkie were involved, you know the artistic outcome was dope as hell. You can take a look at the photo log of the Fools Gold trip and exhibition in blog form. They need to bring their gear to the States! I would love to watch these two work!
