Kang’s portraits of famous people such as Pablo Picasso, Audrey Hepburn are actually works of composite-realism rather than photo-realism. These works are created through the artist’s direct and indirect understanding of the character. Kang’s works exhibited several means of mixed medium with illusionary photo-realism, allowing the audience to interact with the artwork.

A cool video about the reproduction of the iconic, perfectly designed 1960′s IBM wall clock. The lowdown: “Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. partnered with IBM to exclusively produce their iconic 1960s standard issue wall clock. The clock is a faithful reproduction of the classic IBM clocks found in offices, warehouses and schools during the mid-20th century. Hand assembled in Schoolhouse Electric’s Portland, Oregon Factory, it is constructed with a USA made spun steel case, domed glass lens, and the original graphic hands and faceplate design. Operated by a Quartz movement with a red, continuous sweep second hand.”

This is Real: Joy Division x Mickey Mouse

header 605x605 This is Real: Joy Division x Mickey Mouse mickey mouse joy divison disney

In one of those moments where you realize a sacred part of you is owned by Disney, there is a Joy Division inspired shirt with the image of Mickey on it being sold on Disney’s site. The Disney store actually reads “”Inspired by the iconic sleeve of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album, this Waves Mickey Mouse Tee incorporates Mickey’s image within the graphic of the pulse of a star. That’s appropriate given few stars have made bigger waves than Mickey!”

Well, that ends Joy Division for us.
