Thursday, August 23, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: Tauba Auerbach’s Digital World
With paintings of dizzying static, pixels and graphic type, Tauba Auerbach masterfully fuses the analog and digital worlds. The stunning San Francisco artist already has an impressive list of exhibitions under her belt (including a current stint at MoMA), and it’s safe to say that she’s just warming up. While we wait for her next stroke of genius, here are some of Tauba’s works that regularly grace our desktop background.

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: Take A Spin
Lately we’ve been embracing the hues of the color wheel in more ways than one. Spin art was one of our favorite pastimes as kids, and we’re still pretty obsessed with these crazy paint-splattered masterpieces. Whether hung on the wall or swirled onto a dress, we’re definitely overdue for a spin art sesh.

Monday, August 6, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: Warhol’s Polaroid Portraits
Long before the days of Instagram, Andy Warhol was constantly spotted out taking candid photos of his glamorous pals. So to celebrate his birthday, we thought it was only fitting to round up a few of our favorites. With snapshots of everyone from Debbie to Dolly, these portraits prove the Pop Art king also had the gift of capturing raw beauty and the true essence of every rock star and runway model that graced The Factory. Happy Birthday Andy!
Monday, July 23, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: With The Band
There are two things we can never have enough of – shoes and vinyl. Not only do we love the distinctly grainy sound of a record, but the artwork can be almost as awesome as what’s inside. So…for your viewing pleasure, we’ve compiled some of the coolest album covers ever – from Warhol’s functional zipper on Sticky Fingers and peelable banana on The Velvet Underground & Nico to a totally screwed Debbie Harry on Koo Koo. There’s no doubt these works of art will have you running to the record store to get your fix!
