In celebration of 90 years of BMW Motorrad along with 40 years of the iconic R 90 S, BMW chose the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2013 as the stage to unveil its modernized version of the classic motorcycle — the BMW Concept 90. Teaming up with Roland Sands Design ‘RSD,’ the Concept 90 pays homage to BMW’s bike of the ’70s, most noticeably with the use of the original Daytona Orange paint. The Concept 90 further translates the essence of the R 90 S in the faring, fuel tank and rear portions of the updated bike. To rejuvenate the bike’s design, halogen lighting was swapped with a BMW LED headlamp and a plethora of customs parts were crafted for the project.

London Property with Dark Atmospheric Interiors through Texture And Metallics


London-based architecture and luxury interior design practice Lawson Robb have completed the Dark Atmospheric Interiors project. Completed in 2012, the luxurious property can be found just off Berkeley Square in London, United Kingdom.

The fundamental principle for successfully creating an atmospheric interior for a room that has a dark colour scheme is to incorporate texture and pattern which brings depth, flavour and character to your overall scheme. Combining and layering contrasting textures is integral to designing an interior that will not appear flat and void of visual interest. A lack of layers can lead to an impersonal, unwelcoming space like in thiscontemporary London property. Contrast within textural differences ensures a powerful impact. By using a combination of different textures on walls and in fabrics you can make an interior with one dark palette interesting and dynamic rather than employing flat color. Layering similar tones across different mediums makes a space feel bigger. Lawson Robb often use specialist wall finishes and hand crafted wallpaper to inject vibrancy within a dark room, often with architectural metal finishes and metal coatings using cold sprayed metal. Pairing metallic elements within a dark scheme adds a sophisticated depth – hammered bronze metal cladding for the doors and mirror frames, polished plaster and metallic particles in paint finishes are all evident within the scheme. Lacquer finishes and unusual textures, such as, shagreen wallpaper, hand trawled wall finishes, grass wallpaper and snake skin are perfect to add vibrant intense touches of interest.

Gue(ho)st House by Berdaguer And Péjus


French artists Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus have converted an old house in France into a visitor centre by giving it a ghostly cloak of polystyrene and paint. The building, which was formerly used as a prison house, a school and a funeral home, is located in the grounds of the Synagogue de Delme contemporary art centre, a gallery inside a 19th century synagogue. Blocks of polystyrene create the chunky shapes on the facade, and are covered with resin and a layer of white paint. The artists imagine the building as a “ghost-house” and have named it Gue(ho)st House, in reference to the phrase invented by Marcel Duchamp “A GUEST + A HOST = A GHOST”.

Tear Away Wall Paper.


Applying wallpaper to walls has never been so fun. With this perforated “tear off” wallpaper from ZNAK, you can customize the appearance of your space by tearing off the pieces as you please. The wallpaper is created out of non-woven material and the shapes are inspired by the the transformation process of snakes.

The Evolution Of Paint.


Valencia-based designers Culdesac have created ‘The Paint Evolution’ for the paint company Valentine.  Their collaborative project celebrates the ever changing nature of artistic tools and implements within the valentine brand.
Brushes and rollers in this creative collection feature an interactive, form-as-function approach to the construction of each piece.  One may anticipate the mark and movement of the implement in an artist’s hand simply by examining the form of each object.

‘Genetic mutations give birth to imaginative instruments: the brush compass, pendulum or whip give us a clue to the behavior of paint through sketches and through history’

You Can Color Your Food?


Want to impress your guests at a dinner party?   There’s nothing more baller than wheeling out a golden chicken. Developed together with The Deli Garage and a small food factory, which supplies high-quality fine pastry shops with food coloring, this easy to use with the spray can and the result is beautiful. Why not create a chrome trout or gold-plated asparagus tips. It is completely harmless and tasteless to eat, Food Finish brings new luster in the creative cuisine.  Check the method.

Mark Mawson’s Aqueous Fluoreau.


Mark Mawson has bases in London & Sydney and spends his time between the two shooting for advertising agencies & magazines.  Representation in Paris by Artists & Archives, http://www.artistsandarchives.com.  He is represented by several galleries and his personal work is in many private collections around the world.  One of my personal favorite of his is the Aqueous Fluoreau.  It’s a beautiful group of pictures that were created simply by dropping paint into water.

Paper Donut Makes Anamorphic Graffitti?


I know I for sure threw some people off with the name of this post, but so will these incredible pictures.  French collective Paper Donut has painted a series of walls with three-dimensional shapes.  The image above is part of an ad campaign for fashion store Sqwear, and the other two visuals are personal projects.

Keep Your Wi-Fi To Yourself.


Researchers at the University of Tokyo in Japan have created a special paint which can block out wireless signals. The paint, which could cost as little at £10 per kilogram, contains an aluminium-iron oxide which resonates at the same frequency as wi-fi – or other radio waves – meaning the airborne data is absorbed and blocked. While paints blocking lower frequencies have been available for some time, this new technology is the first to absorb frequencies transmitting as high as 100GHz (gigahertz). Signals carrying a larger amount of data – such as wireless internet – travel at a higher frequency than, for example, FM radio.

The paint has a number of interesting potential applications including: keeping wireless networks secure, blocking phone calls during movies, shielding hospital rooms from unwanted electromagnetic radiation, and making clothes that protect people from electromagnetic waves.

The Artwork of Gene Guynn.


Gene Guynn is one of the most ridiculous skilled painters I’ve seen in quite some time.  (That’s probably because I studied at my old school, The Academy Of Art University.)  With a painter for a mother and a musician for a father, his world was always one of creativity and expression. Gene takes inspiration from the thriving urban, outsider, and lowbrow art culture of SF, LA, and NYC, and combines it with a fine art sophistication, especially taking influence from contemporary masters such as Jenny Saville and Lucian Freud. After graduating with a BFA in painting in 2008, Gene moved from San Francisco to the Los Angeles area, where he continues to paint and further evolve his personal style and exhibit in galleries all over the world.

Amazing Paint-Spill Painting.


Paintings can take many different shapes and styles, but spill paintings are among some of the oddest.  This unique style of painting simply involves dripping large amounts of paint onto a structure, and watching the natural flow of the paint create the rest.  Check out a video of this amazing art form below.

The Artwork Of Adrian Borda.


There aren’t too many illustrators/painters that I’d honestly describe as stunning, but Adrian Borda’s work as just that.  Romanian artist Adrian Borda attended the Art High School in Targu-Mures before continuing the specialization in Iasi, “George Enescu” University, Faculty of Fine Arts and Design, painting field.  His artwork is dark, passionate, twisted, and draws the attention of the viewer in a deep way that not too many other pieces do.  And take a look at the pictures in depth, almost every time you see each piece, you’ll notice something you didn’t notice before.

Roadsworth.


While looking up some info on Amsterdam, I came across the work of Canadian stencil artist Roadsworth (Peter Gibson), and really liked it.  When it comes to something so simple, so raw, and so unique, I knew I had to throw it up.  He’s been doing his thing since 2001, using stencils to adapt the existing road graphics, mainly on the streets of Montreal, initially as a protest against the lack of cycle lanes, but increasingly as a commentary on car culture, oil dependancy and authoritarianism. I’m not sure how successful it is on those counts, but as a way of injecting a little wit and lyricism into the urban landscape, it’s the sh*t.  Check the method, and both of the videos on his work.


Russ Mills Illustrations.


I have to give my apologies for the recent absence.  It’s the beginning of the holidays, and I too have to take a break sometimes to be with family.  That being said, I’m happy to bring it back with the illustrations of Russ Mills.  He has a unique way of creating distorted images with the use of paint spatters.  All of the work I’ve seen from Mills is award-worthy, check the method below.
