Björk’s Distorted Drag Makeup by Isshehungry

Bjork’s Distorted Drag Makeup by Isshehungry

@isshehungry works and lives in Berlin, Germany. ‘Hungry’ is a very talented makeup artist, crossing the bounderies of the common perception of beauty. The created faces almost look like a Photoshop session gone wild; but don’t let them fool you: it’s all painted for real! Did you know: the face of Björk on the ‘Utopia’ album cover has been done by Hungry…..Nice!

Goodbye Daan van Golden at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Less than a month ago, on January 9, Dutch artist Daan van Golden passed away. In Van Golden’s memory museum Boijmans van Beuningen (in Rotterdam) staged a temporary presentation for his family and friends to bid the artist a worthy farewell. A small selection of his impressive oeuvre can be seen in the Serra Gallery till February 19, 2017. (Read more at www.boijmans.nl)

This weekend on Saturday February 4, the day on which Daan van Golden would have celebrated his 81st birthday, the family was at the presentation. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to offer condolences in person. And Yes we took snaps. Snaps?! you ask of us. Yes we did, sometimes one doesn’t know what do in a situation because of the sadness or just beacause you are stunned, and then you just take snaps…..At least we, at Mimi Berlin do. (We have been taken snaps at even more sad occassions than this one, which we never will post because they are too private or awkward, but we feel we can post these series; in memory of Mr van Golden.) Goodbye Daan van Golden.
Thank you Mr & Mrs. J.

Ran Hwang Pins and Needles

 Ran Hwang Pins and Needles

ARTIST STATEMENT I create large icons such as a Buddha or a traditional vase, using materials from the fashion industry. The process of building large installations are time consuming and repetitive and it requires manual effort which provides a form of self-meditation. I hammer thousands of pins into a wall like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen. My works are divided into two groups. In the first, pins are used to hold buttons remain free to move and suggest the genetic human tendency to be irresolute. I choose buttons, which are as common and ordinary as human beings. In the second group of works, a massive number of pins connect yards of thread creating a negative space of the presented images, threads suggesting connections between human beings and a communication network between seemingly unlinked human experiences. The filled negative space in the absence of the positive space suggests mortality at the heart of self-recognition. (via ranhwang.com/images via the red list)
