Tatzu Nishi

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Keeping with the monumental theme, after the Faile post, I thought i’d share another amazing project titled ‘War and Peace and in between’ by Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi.  Last October I went along to the Art Gallery of New South Wales after a high recommendation from Ed Woodley of China Heights. It was the day after my solo exhibition at the Heights and I was sporting a thumping headache thanks to Mr Green.  I was reluctant to leave the motel bed, however I had to see this in person, so seedy as I was I made my way to the gallery and on arrival was immediately in awe of what laid before me.  I had my camera in hand, ready to shoot and the freakin batteries died…..anyway, several months slip on by and I happily stumble across the Kaldor Public Art Projects site documenting Nishi’s ingenious installations that encompassed the mighty equestrian sculptures of Gilbert Bayes.

Anne Boleyn

After retrieving the gown of virtuosity from the kobolt caves, Rick Wakeman, level 10 bard, adventurer and hero of the Goblin wars treated the minions of Azeragoth to a night they’d never forget.

Check at around 4:38, he managed to give the camera a cheeky little wave with his middle and ring fingers half way through a melody.

He’s more god than man.

Warhols moon penis

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

No doubt about it, above all else, this is Warhols greatest contribution to mankind.

In 1969 with help of an engineer going under the name John F; Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, David Novros and John Chamberlain secretly snuck a miniature ceramic chip featuring artwork onto Apollo 12.

The first extra planetary exhibition was covert and what’s more Warhol did what we would all probably lose a few nights sleep struggling with before doing, he went and drew a cock.

Like most of Warhol’s work, the execution may be crumby, but the idea speaks for us all.

NICE v2

Monday, May 24th, 2010

See? See!? We weren’t crazy after all. We really were working on version 2 of Nice Produce.

Behold, Nice 2. Build from the ground up by our genius Karl. More power full than Galactus, more agily than Spiderman and as useful as Slapstick. There are new sections for, events, galleries, good looking storefront, cleaner interface and a blog section with a shit load of bloggers.

Nice v2.0 History Lesson.

Nice Produce 2 is first mentioned in newsletter on May 22nd, 2008 12:47:16 AM GMT+10:00
Quote – “We’re smashing code on the award winning Nice 2.0.”

Nice 2 then next appears in a blog post titled “Coming up for Air” on December 22nd, 2008.
Quote - “We’re working on it, if you want the job done right, you have to do it yourself. It’s the Nice way of life.” It’s important to note that this post is accompanied by a photo of 4 cases of Carslberg cooling on a balcony in Stockholm.

2009 is a blur.

The next mention of Nice 2 comes in January 11th, 2010 in a blog post called “Nerdballin 2.0.” Where we see that a overworked and disheveled Lynty has been picked up as the Downsizing spokesman for the i.t industry. We claim that “The 90% finished Nice 2.0 will be up and running before you know it.”. We lie.

No longer in Stockholm on May 9th 2010, in a self explanatory blog post titled “Another Lovely Day in NYC” we see why Nice2 has yet again been held back, due to an unforseeable bottleneck at Prince and Wooster Taco stand in Soho.

And then, May 24th 2010, as if by magic, exactly 2 years and 2 days after the first announcement,  Nice Produce 2.0 is up, just like that.

Shigeru Miyamoto, is still clearly impressed.

Good work Lynty.

Thanks everyone for sticking by Nice all these years.

TEZ.

Much of his work comprises of a combination of these mediums and often incorporates recycled materials and found objects. TEZ unveiled his debut solo exhibition “Sure Ain’t Sushi” at Sydney’s China Heights gallery in late 2009.
