Hello welcome to my art Tumblr. My name is Chris, I mostly post my work or what inspires me. I'm 26 and currently living in Evanston IL.
’Mukashi Mukashi’ & ‘A New Tenant’
I was asked to contribute to the Heroes in A Half Shell: A TMNT Tribute Exhibition for Gallery Nucleus, which will be opening this Saturday.
I thought it would be fun to show Splinter and crew with Shredder’s vanquished helmet, only kicking it back to the feudal age of Japan it’s based off of. No mutations and a samurai helmet.
I grew up with the 90’s TMNT and finding out that the new Krang was no longer the campy robot kangaroo pouch with alien brain baby left me nostalgic. It felt like Krang had left his out dated model back in ‘87 for a shiny new ride, and I couldn’t help thinking it’s probably still sitting around somewhere collecting dust, overgrown with plants.
Sachin Teng is one of our favorite artists right now, hands down. Keep up the awesome work!
Wes Anderson has become a film genre. The great folks at Way Too Indie explore his visual themes from his work in ‘Rushmore,’ ‘Bottle Rocket,’ ‘Royal Tenenbaums,’ ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ ‘Darjeeling Limited,’ to his latest work in ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’
“The tracking camera, moving from room to room, examining the bourgeoisie and upper class in the films of Luis Buñuel (e.g. ‘El Angel Exterminador’) laid the groundwork for the dolly and tracking shots in Anderson’s ‘Rushmore,’ ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ and early sections of ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.’ The frenetic energy and overall zeal found in François Truffaut’s ‘Jules et Jim’ serves also as the celluloid backbone of most of Anderson’s works, specifically ‘Bottle Rocket,’ ‘The Royal Tenenbaums,’ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox.’ The melancholic swoons of the silver screen’s longing romantics permeate ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ ‘Hotel Chevalier’/‘The Darjeeling Limited’ and in the romance subplot of ‘Bottle Rocket.’ These films share the same sort of beautiful yet honest moments found in Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Pierrot Le Fou.’” —Nelson Carvajal, Way Too Indie

"I staggered through my career and came out the other end alive. I made some films that meant something to me. In my opinion, they weren’t all great, and they weren’t all successful, but they sure were ‘me’. And this is what I was going through or thinking or feeling as a director at the time, and I’m very proud of them. A lot of great directors just never had the chance to have their work appreciated and celebrated and watched all these years after they were made. So, man, what do you want out of life? It’s great!" — John Carpenter
