Not too long ago, the ladies of M.I.S.S teamed up with Australian publication Hell Yeah to shoot a cover spread for the magazine’s May issue. Although for some May conjures up ideas of May poles and flowers brought on by April showers, the ladies of M.I.S.S and Hell Yeah looked beyond the spring season, instead pulling inspiration from key moments in culture and political history.

The theme of the May cover shoot was work wear meets pop art.

The theme of the May cover shoot was work wear meets pop art.

Styled by our very own Liz Baca, the Hell Yeah x M.I.S.S May issue cover spread was based on combining the rugged appeal of work wear with the vividness of pop art. Muses such as Rosie the Riveter and Roy Lichtenstein were constantly in mind as Amanda Lopez shot brands including Doc Martens, Hellz Bellz, and Dimepiece. Overalls, jumpsuits, and workbooks, the workwear side of the shoot, were complimented with pop culture themed tees and accessories in bright colors. Makeup artist Jenni Tay finished off the look with 1950s style puckered, red lips, while hairstylist Justina Downs pulled off pin curl hairstyles.

Check out our behind the scenes video from the shoot, and cop the May issue of Hell Yeah Magazine, on newsstands now!

Art Radar: 04.22.10




Lazarides Gallery is pleased to announce David Choe’s Exhibition, Nothing to Declare. The extremely prolific Choe has been hard at work creating new paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the 8,000 sq ft space in Beverly Hills.  Yes, 8,000 sq ft!  So don’t worry, if you don’t hit it up next week, I have plenty of time to remind you that the exhibit is still running, but you know the opening night brings the hype!

When: April 23rd – May 23rd

What: David Choe’s – Nothing to Declare

Where: Lazarides Gallery 320 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills CA 90210



DON’T TRIP! But Kidrobot x Sanrio figures hit the interweb! YES! KIDROBOT AND SANRIO!!!  First there was Frank Kozik’s packaging for a devilish Hello Kitty figure (based on this Three Apples painting) and then shortly after Amanda Visell’s Badtz Maru.  Pretty exciting, Hello Kitty is huge worldwide and these figures should certainly increase exposure for the artists involved and designer toys as a whole.

After digging around a bit on the ‘net and elsewhere, here’s a little more info.  The release is a likely a ways off yet (in 2010), the figures are apparently medium sized (not minis), and the list of artists includes Tara McPherson.   Here’s guessing that the new toys might be part of Sanrio’s 50th Anniversary.

A highly entertaining new exhibition at the Arts Décoratifs museum focuses on the seminal work of Paris designers in the 70s and 80s. By assembling superstars like Yohji Yamamoto and Christian Lacroix, as well as such unsung heroes as Jean Muir and Marc Audibet, curator Olivier Saillard has resurrected the recent yet often misunderstood period in fashion. Creativity was stretched to its limits, models of all ethnic origins began working together, suited-up marketing guys didn’t direct trends, and it was the last era that prêt-à-porter would be informed by haute couture.



Scion Installation 6: Video - Eric Nakamura & Saelee Oh Interview from Scion ART on Vimeo.

Eric Nakamura & Saelee Oh discuss their paper art animated video art piece that is currently featured in Scion’s Installation 6: Video national art tour. They give great insight into how they painstakingly created their short - lots of freestyle scissor work, late nights, complaining and fun! Please let me know if you can post this video on your site.  The tour will visit Minneapolis in May…stay tuned for details. Visit Scion Installation for more photos and information.

My favorite Scion project yet!

Dave White in “Amerikanische Kunst & Pop Art”

dave white wonder woman

Back when I was working on Cybelle, circa 2004, an artist got in touch with us to let us know about these paintings of sneakers he was doing. I thought they were cool, and next thing I knew, Dave White was everywhere. He was the official sneakerhead painter and his paintings of his favorite kicks could be seen everywhere from gallery walls to Sneaker Pimps exhibitions. It’s wonderful to see how far he’s come with painting what he loves.

In his newest works, Dave White is showing us a different side, a side that loves comic books. His latest pieces Superheroes and Villains are large scale oil paintings portraying characters including Wonder Woman, Superman, Bat Man, Bat Girl, The Hulk, Captain America and Spiderman. Despite his change in subject, you can still see Dave White’s signature style shine through with drips, splats and texture. My favorite, of course, is Wonder Woman. I’ve been a fan of hers since I was about four and still remember spinning around to undergo my superhero transformation!

Some of Dave White’s pieces from Superheroes and Villains can be currently viewed at a show called Amerikanische Kunst & Pop Art in Frankfurt, Germany through October 15th. His work will be hanging alongside masters such as Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol! If you can’t make it to Frankfurt check out the gallery site and I’ve got more photos for you after the jump.
