    When I think of Adrian Frutiger, I think of, well, Frutiger, which is sort of a humanist grotesk, maybe. Then I think of Myriad Pro. Of course Frutiger didn't design Myriad, but Myriad is pretty much...

    I understand what you are trying to achieve (and I have seen some other good examples in a similar style) but to me it doesn't read as 'EFM'. It seems incomplete. Needs more work. Or a different appr...

    There is no recognition of your initials without knowing what they are. Nicely executed but conception is weak. Try another avenue.

  • F:ART - my movie.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently making a short movie about a painting. It's called 'F:ART'. 'F--k ART'. I have given up alcohol for 1 month and I'm putting the time I spent drinking and recovering from my hangovers into producing a triptych painting. It's a 9' x 4' acrylic on board work. I should have loads of time to do it! It's a forced docu style movie with a few twists. Ego boost time!

    I would say you guys have some favourite art works and maybe some websites that have cool stuff. Please feel free to point me in the direction that is good modern art!

    Hmm. Okay. Here's one of my favourite works of art:



    The artist was PieroManzoni.

    In 1961, Piero 'created' Merde d' Artiste, his most famous work which consisted of 90 sealed cans filled with... well, 30grams of his own excrement. It was intended as a commentary on the foolishness of the art-buying public, and priced at $34 a can (apparently, the same price as 30g of gold, in 1961).

    In the year 2000, the Tate Gallery in London paid $33,000 for one of these cans (can #4, for you serious collectors). As an investment, it was shrewd: can #19 sold in 2007 for $80,000 at auction.

    It probably helped that Piero dropped dead from a heart attack two years after he revealed this creative project (and only 29).

    To me, this work represents one of the supreme examples of the values inherent in so much of the contemporary art scene. In modern art, it's true that s**t is only as valuable as the a**hole it came out of.

      Hmm what are you defining as "modern" art? From 1950ish to today?

        Modern? Hmm... around 1860 to 1970's. Post-modern? Sequels.

          Yeah, the '50s were coming to the tail end of the modern era.

          Once everything got boiled down to minimalism and pure concept art, Modern art had run its inevitable course.

            I should have left the word 'modern' out as it's not what this is about. More so 'contemporary' art. I would be interested in any stuff that you think is pretty cool.

                    "There's something about turning the pages of a book or magazine and the felling of rubbing your hands across the words."

                    This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                      Banksy released a B movie about himself which I got a heads-up on when he released it about a week ago now ...but sure enough I can't find it still up on the interwebs anywhere

                      It was a bunch of critical comments / interviews from contemporaries such as Hirst et al. and Banksy chatting about his up and comings.

                      If you're contemporary art boundaries include other disciplines, I would def include fashion designer Alexander McQueen (R.I.P.).

                          I really enjoyed Exit Through the Giftshop. More about the process of the film (which created a monster) than the artist that the documentary was supposed to be about. It would be very interesting dissecting this movie and it's concept vs the final product. Mr Brainwash (in the movie) is such an interesting character that really screams F*** Art.

                            I have a 9' x 4' blank canvas in front of me. And I just spent 150 on paints and brushes. No idea of what to paint! So daunting.

                              Paint a piece and sell it for less than €150. There would be an interesting concept to making artwork at a loss or as a statement about the value of art. Tobias Wong's Money Pad piece springs to mind.

                              Or work out how much $ you have saved by not drinking alcohol and do something based on that amount?
