Santiago, Chile based artist Ignacio Paredes aka BAREFOOTONSLUGS mixes analogue techniques with digital in his work that is mostly focused on collages. His art is inspired in his 12 year old self -a mixture of grotesque, morbid and spiritual thoughts- all compressed into his artwork.

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook gets his commissioned David Choe painting

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook just commissioned David Choe for a new painting, and David finished the piece and gave it to Mr. Facebook recently. We are not sure if you remember or not, but David Choe was commissioned by Zuckerberg and Facebook to paint the walls of the Palo Alto offices of the social networking company.

And if you saw the film, “The Social Network,” you saw some of the Choe pieces he did the offices.

As Upper Playground put it, “Real Digital G’s know what’s up. Paintings are the new Bentleys.” Zuckerberg knows what’s up.
