Venice-based artist Peeta‘ work has an amazing art style that takes the digital familiar into the real world, like pixelated sculptures. He merges his passions for graffiti writing, sculpture, and design in his large-scale spray murals that look like swirling three dimensional objects that float just above a wall or canvas. The artworks take on the form of graffiti-like letterforms but aren’t necessarily meant to be read or deciphered. Instead the pieces focus more on the use of line, shadow, and color to build impressive voluminous shapes that explode in every direction.

Peeta created this latest mural for the HKWALLS festival. The piece occupies a giant facade on a busy Hong Kong intersection above the Golden Computer Arcade and draws its color for neighboring buildings and signs.

We don’t know who this is, or where it came from, what gallery/artist, but we just know that we like it a lot. We found it on Flickr a while back when we were looking at images from the Hong Kong Art Fair, and we thank this Flickr member for the memories.

Shark Sister tantrum in Hong Kong Video… wow.

This video is described as “A woman diver is not at all happy she can’t see sharks in Hong Kong, as they’ve all been eaten. Caught on camera just weeks after a woman threw a tantrum at the airport, and another went wild after finding a restaurant had no shark fin soup for her (some selfish people had eaten the sharks, left none for her!).” All we have to say is… Mayan calendar. 2012 is a comin’…

Murakami’s new solo show “Flowers” opens in Hong Kong next week

Posted from The Citrus Report

With all the chatter about George Condo and his Kanye cover, we forgot that we didn’t think Kanye was all that cool until Murakami became his art director for an album. Anyway, on October 27, Fabrik Gallery in Hong Kong will host Takashi Murakami’s latest solo exhibition, “Murakami’s Flowers.” After the Versailles work, nice to see Murakami back in the solo game.
