Resident lucidreamers’ Guys We’d !!! and animation/illustration phenom, Yué Wu, was in Berlin earlier this month to unveil his “Circle of Life” exhibition for the Absolut Art Stream project made possible by MADE. Check out the video where he talks about the process behind the brilliance.

Thank you for putting us on, Recho.
We’ve been awfully quiet lately, and it’s because we’ve been curating a mixtape that marks a really special time in our lives. We can’t stop listening to these amazing artists and we really hope you love it as much as we do. Click on the images to download The Dirty Birdie by lucidreamers.com
Special thanks to our good friend Mass for the tracklist photography and Gold Standard Creative for the cover and tracklist designs.

“It is called An Oversimplification of Her Beauty and I think It will make you smile, several times over a period of just over an hour.” – Terence Nance
Street art isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but this kid from Hackney is worth slowing down for. We were first introduced to Word to Mother’s work in 2008 at the StolenSpace Gallery off of Brick Lane in East London, where much to our surprise, most of the pieces on display already had a red sticker. WTM’s approach to his creations is entirely organic:
“I like to use things that have already existed as something else. I like the idea of objects having a past and then re-using them. Taking things that have been discarded by someone, seen as useless and then taking it home and turning it into a painting. For me, a lot of the wood and metal panels I find are beautiful without anything on them, so I try to retain as much of the original texture and colour of the object as possible”.
Arte! Arte! Arte! Marta Minujin’s simple but fervent motto leaves you with the feeling that in the absence of art, there remains little relevance to…anything. The Argentine phenomenon has been shocking the world with her larger-than-life work since the 1950′s, and has set a new standard for ephemeral art. From controversial paintings to dizzying installations, quirky fashion lines to LSD-inspired texts, breath-taking sculptures to prodigious effigies, and of course, the recurring reproduction and reinterpretation of the obelisk, Minujin’s art is nothing short of magic. Magic mushrooms, that is. Check out her latest projects here: http://www.marta-minujin.com/.
And they don’t come badder than legendary drummer Tony Allen. Lagos Shake: A Tony Allen Chop Up (2008) is a compilation of Tony Allen remixes by various artists. We can’t speak to the content yet (we just ordered it), but the track list looks pretty impressive. The album artwork is so sick, though, that it might not matter.
It’s hard to explain what David Klein and Nick Woolley of Good Night Billygoat do. So, we’ll let them do all the talking…
