Leipzig based graphic-designer and artist Robert Deutsch works on a twisted pop-surreal inspired world reflecting the incongruous human behavior and thinking in a chaotic upside-down society, dominated by the image of the anti-hero.

Bizarre comic-landscapes and ludicrous humor impel the works of Deutsch into the absurd, although their essence is not far from reality and its current social and political issues. He represents and builds his characters with a bold artistic approach referring to various actions and topical allusions.

Mesa-based painter and digital manipulator Scott Wolf (aka ColorOrgy) blends perversion with pop culture, creating a twisted take on Americana with the help of violence and sexuality. Between children with chainsaws and bunnies birthing Easter eggs in the Virgin Mary’s Arms, Wolf’s work is so wrong it’s right.

Finding inspiration from mid-20th century pulp fiction and comic books – Scott’s graphic images mix vibrant hues with equal parts of dark humor, to explore the sinister side of childhood, romance and gender roles in a changing society.

Kanye West x Jay-Z “H.A.M.”

Posted from The Citrus Report

Only Kanye West and Jay-Z can team up and make something like this and make it super popular. This isn’t as powerful as any thing on Twisted, but hey, throwing a little “H.A.M.” with Jay-Z, sounding very KMEL, this isn’t that awful. It is produced by Lex Luger.

Coming soon is the Yeez x Jigga Watch the Throne project, with a release date of a full album set for March 1, 2011. Really fun watching two dudes worth $100m+ making albums.

Great Kanye preview in the Times

Posted from The Citrus Report

Today, Kanye West releases his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. We have heard, have it, love it. It doesn’t have that original feeling you got from Dropout and Registration, nor does it have the rock star quality of Graduation, nor the minimal left field nature 808s. No, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is everything above, and nothing above. Its pompous, bombast, but still after all the microscopic needling we do to Kanye, he is still an interesting pop star who is growing and still trying new things, and when he writes a hit, it hits hard and different than most top-40.

The Times had a nice review of Kanye that we think you should read.

And we give the album 4/5.

Kanye names new album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”

Posted from The Citrus Report

We think this means Kanye West is officially over his college themes. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is due in stores November 22nd, or at least until Kanye bumps that back or up a few days. He’s Kanye, he can do that.
