Hollywood Street Characters Ken Hermann

Behind the mask is a series of portraits of the people working as Hollywood street characters on the Hollywood Boulevard in LA. The street characters make a living by letting themselves being photographed together with the thousands of tourists who visit the Boulevard each day and pay them a tip them to take a shot.  

Some of the street characters does a really good job acting as look-alikes and they actually look a lot like some of the big Hollywood stars while others just look like silly grownups in poor and dirty costumes. Most of the street characters have one thing in common though. They are - or once where - pursuing the American dream of becoming someone special and famous. And, it is this struggle mixed with the childish fantasy world I find interesting.   

My idea was to give the viewer a glimpse of the person behind the mask and to show a more serious aspect of the character. Normally the street characters are pictured with a funny face in lively settings but instead I was aiming for the more personal expression of the real person behind the mask. In order to enhance this several of the portraits was also taken in the characters’ own home or neighborhood.

New New Wight

An online virtual gallery exhibition from ucladma featuring works from familiar Tumblr-based net artists such as kyttenjanae and adamferriss :

New New Wight is a virtual exhibition space based on the New Wight Gallery located at UCLA. It is conceived as a space for art-making liberated from institutional limitations such as the prohibition of food and plants inside the gallery, but also from the inherent limitations of our material world. The NNW is a space where the only portal required to enter is the internet and where the laws of physics no longer apply.

The exhibition is built using the game engine Unity - you can find out more as well as download the exhibition from the exhibition website here

A taste of the Amazing Sculptures of Gregor Gaida

Polish artist Gregor Gaida ( Based in Germany ). The most surprising thing about his work is that most of these almost photographic sculptures are carved from wood (and then combined with aluminium, polyester and acrylic resin) His sculptures often depict strange compositions of animals or interactions between people.
