{Coming from a traditional fine art background, Amandalynn takes her expertise in art and painting into an array of applications. She studied at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and received a Bachelor’s of Fine Art with an Illustration major. After school, she worked independently and freelance on many mural productions and theater set painting. Amandalynn then reached further into the study and application of paint through the automotive industry, where she painted, repaired, customized and restored motorcycles, cars, trucks, helmets, bicycles and much more.

Zac Freeman uses junk to create amazing portraits, check it out.. and GO GREEN! {My assemblage artworks have continued to encapsulate cultural change. For example, grey film canister tops used in my early junk portraits are very rare now as our society has moved to digital cameras. An iPhone used as shading on a cheek looks desired one year and archaic the next as society, technology, and consumables continue to change.}To find out more visit  ARTISTADAY.COM For more info check out  http://www.zacfreemanart.com/ .

NICK STERN x BANKSY

YOU ARE NOT BANKSY  Photos by NICK STERN Look familiar? Nick Stern a London-born photographer made a photo series re-enacting Banksy’s most iconic stencil works. I love them! {Stern is a big fan of Banksy’s. “I particularly like the social comment in his work,” he communicated in an email. Still, “You are not Banksy” was never meant to be an actual photo project. He’d originally thought of it more as a creative exercise, a way to test some new photo strobe lights. The first image he photographed was the flower thrower, his favorite Banksy graffiti. “I got such a good response from people that I decided to expand the shoot,” he wrote.} For more info check out this  ARTICLE.

THE BEST STREET ART OF 2012: LOS ANGELES

Image
{French street artist JR visited Los Angeles and left some beautifully decorated buildings behind. Like this one on Beverly Blvd. Plastic Jesus strikes again with a piece that surfaced on Melrose during the Holiday shopping season. It is appropriately entitled American Excess. (This is my favorite, so innovative.) Often times, street art will play the role of jester in society, like this piece from street artist Bumboy WC, which utilizes imagery from the Kent State Riots to capture the mayhem surrounding the iPhone 5 being sold out. It has been said that being a street artist is like a kid playing on the streets. This giant mural from Bumblebee captures the spirit of kids playing. Chik-fil-a became a target for progressive activists this year after their so-called family values were revealed to be less about the family and more about supporting anti-gay causes. Subsequently, 2012 saw multiple pieces of street art aimed at the fast food giant for its perceive
