Crappy original of epic botched restoration found

quote [ It?s the same size as the church painting ? 55 by 45 centimeters ? and is believed to be the same in all other aspects as well. Since Martinez is known to have spent a mere two hours painting the one in Borja, perhaps he copied from his own canvas. ]

I didn't know about potato jesus, but now I do. Article is from 2016, incident from 2012.

Dire Jank

quote [ Jank has a wide and foggy etymology, but I've mostly encountered it in gaming culture. It can just mean shitty or busted, but my favorite connotation is "fun but suboptimal." Like picking a "bad" character in a fighting game because you love their look. Suffering for the aesthetic, for the memes. It's like being me. ]

Liked this quote of an art space essay about glitchy media.

?you might be more interested in the other exhibition, called ?Should a robot be sexy??.

quote [ ?Instagram?s slow evolution into a glorified mall isn?t only an attempt to dethrone TikTok and Youtube?s massive base, but also Amazon?s,? Gizmodo notes. ]

Ok, so his idea of instagram is dead, mind.

The Lost Art of the Miniature Golf Course

quote [ They go large in the States ? even when it comes to the small stuff. And perhaps nowhere is that more true than with a particularly kitsch specimen of American vernacular architecture, the miniature golf course. ]

The only golf I ever tried to play was miniature

Duke Smoochem 3D

quote [ I am starting to fear he might never finish and release Duke Smoochem?not for our sake, for his. Will England stop being daft for long enough for him to catch up and call it finished? Seems unlikely. Maybe he should receive a lifelong Arts Council grant, become an official chronicler. ]

Almost daily updates on the author's Twitter (Nitter).

Quote via current Johnson resignation review. Also note how it all began (Nitter).

Crocotile 3D

quote [ Crocotile 3D is a tile-based modeling editor. You can import tilesets and select tiles from the image to place into the 3d scene to construct environments, objects, characters or anything else you can imagine. ]

Some kind of 3d pixel painter that's easy to use with a Minecraft vibe.

Check out the demo video in the extended, jam 1 & jam 2 plus more creations.

Thumb via waterfall how-to.

The American Art Scene was a Man?s World, Until They Came Along

quote [ When Francoise Gilot split from Picasso, he prevented galleries from buying her work. Camille Claudel?s lover, Augustin Rodin, signed a number of her sculptures as his own, and after their romance ended badly, it?s rumored he told the Ministry of Fine Arts to stop commissioning her. ]

A real American work of art

Precedents of the Unprecedented: Black Squares Before Malevich

quote [ Described by Kasimir Malevich as the ?first step of pure creation in art?, his Black Square of 1915 has been cast as a total break from all that came before it. Yet searching across more than five hundred years of images related to mourning, humour, politics, and philosophy, Andrew Spira uncovers a slew of unlikely foreshadows to Malevich's radical abstraction. ]

black squares like this shit is a trend

quote [ Between 1900 and 1912, 141 of Guimard's entrances were installed all over Paris. Today, 86 remain?though they're often confused with other aesthetically similar types of signage. ]

Some historical references for these well-known signs.
