Ed Ruscha talks about the cultural curiosities which fill his photography book series. He explains he "had no real agenda or message" when photographing the swimming pools, gas stations and parking lots of Los Angeles yet found an artistic value and new perspective in shooting the scenes from above.
Renowned American artist Ed Ruscha gives his best wishes to those bidding at the Rita Hayworth Alzheimer's Gala. Our collaboration with Ruscha resulted in Huntsman producing a bona fide work of art in the form of a one off jacket with Ruscha's famous ‘Boy Meet’s Girl’ painting as the lining. It will be sold, as per the artist will, to benefit a charity close to Ruscha and Huntsmans heart.

"To me, painting is a metaphor for my existence," says Moses. "It all feeds into my paintings. How these paintings are read, well, different people read them in different ways." Regarded as one of the most innovative and prominent abstract expressionists of the post-war era, Moses has achieved international acclaim for his experimental and evolutionary bodies of work. Moses is still awed by the process of his creations carefully noting that his technique is continuously morphing rather than necessarily changing. "I never know when that moment will happen when I realize that I have something special," reflects Moses. "But when it does, it can come at me with such surprise -- that is a beautiful thing." His most recent paintings are a large multi-panel Waterfall Series containing specs of glitter and brilliant, florescent colors and the smokey atmospheric paintings of his Sumo series. These contain elements spray painted through netting and stencils, layered on top of one another. Born in Long Beach, California in 1926, Moses enlisted in the Navy at 17 and served as a surgical technician during World War II. After the war, Moses studied at Long Beach City College before transferring to UCLA to train under the expressionist painter Rico Lebrun. In 1957, Moses exhibited at the famous Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles along with other prominent artists such as Wallace Berman, Robert Irwin and Ed Rusha. In 1996, Moses' paintings were documented in a major retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Arts. In 1980, Moses received a Guggenheim Fellowship which is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated exceptional creative ability in the arts. Moses has had numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally over the span of his six decade long career.

Actually it's a whopper from Burger King. And some Heinz Tomato Ketchup. Yes the original. And finally in slightly better resolution and quality. A classic ASMR trigger scene, so if you got ASMR you might wanna bookmark this video for a good time. Because of the many comments here i feel i should add additional info about this video. It is from danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, the scene appears in his art movie "66 scenes from america" which was filmed in 1981. Jorgen Leth did not know Warhol, but he was a bit obsessed with him so he definitely wanted to have him in his movie. Friends told Leth that he "should forget about it" and that he could never even approach Warhol. Anyways - Leth was stubborn so when he came to New York for his movie he simply went to the "factory", the building Warhol had rented to work at and despite all other claims simply managed to get to Warhol's studio inside where he met Andy Warhol while he was currently working. Leth just told Warhol about his movie and the idea of having Andy being one of the 66 scenes along with the highly "symbolic" burger. Warhol immediately liked the idea and agreed to the scene. Andy liked the scene as he said because it was such a real scene, something he would like to do. So Andy Warhol agreed to come for filming a few days later. Jorgen leth was a bit afraid that Warhol would not come. He had invited him to a photo studio in new York at 14th street/5th avenue that belonged to a friend of him. Leth had his assistant buy some burgers and directly advised him to buy some in halfway neutral packaging as Leth was afraid that Warhol might reject some brands (Warhol always had an obsession with some of his favorite brands). So Andy Warhol finally did arrive at the studio, of course along with his bodyguards, and when he saw the selection of burgers the assistant had brought he asked "Where is the McDonald's?" and Leth - slightly in panic - was immediately like "I thought you would maybe not like to identify... " and Warhol answered "no that is the most beautiful". Leth offered to let his assistant quickly run to McDonald's but Warhol refused like "No, never mind, I will take the Burger King." Directing the video was pretty simple. Leth said to him: "You simply have to eat this hamburger. And then after you finished, you have to eat it, after you finish you should just tell the camera, to the camera, my name is Andy Warhol, I have just eaten a hamburger. " Leth was worried during the taking as he forgot to give Warhol a glass of water and the bottle of ketchup was brand new, so it was hard to get it out. But being a real warhol there was only one take, one try, so Warhol pulled it through in just one take, roughly 5 minutes. But Leth liked the scene and how it came out, so that is why today you can see it here. The original movie "66 Scenes from america" is rather hard to get, but it is included in a Jorgen Leth collection you can buy on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/J%C3%B8rgen-Leth-Collection-12-18-menneske/dp/B005PSGQ0A And another comment from me about "Why Coca Cola, Campbell's Tomato Soup and why a whopper from burger king?" I'll answer that with a quote from Andy Warhol: "What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. " This is actually an interesting piece of art. I call it "art" because that is my personal feeling. Some modern art is merely much more than a bucket of paint thrown against a canvas to me, so i guess if that counts why should Andy not count as art in this vid? But yeah it's questionable if it is really art or just Andy eating a burger. I guess maybe that's why he liked the idea, just like coke or Campbell's tomato soup - something everyone could have, no matter how much money he had.
Andy Warhol After Shooting. The Art of Pop: Soup Cans & Superstars Documentary clip. Valerie Jean Solanas was radical feminist writer who wrote the S.C.U.M. Manifesto and attempted to murder Warhol by shooting him. Andy Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. A biography of the artist, chronological artwork including Celebrity Icons screen prints. Alastair Sooke champions pop art as one of the most important art forms of the twentieth century, peeling back pop's frothy, ironic surface to reveal an art style full of subversive wit and radical ideas. Alastair also explores how pop's fascination with celebrity, advertising and the mass media was part of a global art movement, and he travels to China to discover how a new generation of artists are reinventing pop art's satirical, political edge for the 21st century.

The Simpsons. The Art of America Documentary clip. Andrew Graham-Dixon charts the history of American art on a coast-to-coast journey. Part 3 - WHAT LIES BENEATH In the final part of his United States odyssey, Andrew Graham-Dixon feels the pulse of contemporary America. In the final part of his United States odyssey, Andrew Graham-Dixon feels the pulse of contemporary America. Beginning in Levittown - the first mass-produced suburb - Andrew uncovers the dark side of post-war consumerism and the role artists have played in challenging the status quo. He visits New York's Metropolitan Museum to see the most subversive artwork of 1950s America, Jasper Johns's White Flag. Pop art defined the 1960s and Andy Warhol was its greatest artist. Andrew examines Warhol's soup can paintings, meets his former lover Billy Name and interviews one of the last great surviving pop artists, James Rosenquist. He travels west down the open road, exploring its art, arriving in Los Angeles, an artificial dream world that has inspired the graphic style of Ed Ruscha and the city's own unique contribution to 20th century design - Googie architecture. Back east, Andrew visits the home of one of his favourite 20th century artists, the late Philip Guston, and gets a private view of his work. He drops into the studio of Jeff Koons to learn how the enfant terrible of contemporary art continues to challenge the boundaries of American taste. Finally, he explores the impact 9/11 has had on America and how a new generation of artists, such as Matthew Day Jackson, have made sense of this tragic event. The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening. The series is a satirical depiction of a middle class American lifestyle epitomized by the Simpson family, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television, and many aspects of the human condition. The family was conceived by Groening shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts with the producer James L. Brooks. Groening created a dysfunctional family and named the characters after members of his own family, substituting Bart for his own name. http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/The_Simpsons http://time.com/3638567/the-simpsons-25-episodes/ http://www.biography.com/people/matt-groening-9542573 http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/matt-groening-reveals-the-location-of-the-real-springfield-60583379/?no-ist Brian Sewell Big Art Challenge UK Art Prize Full Series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azZUF4eVaIk&list=PLTRal7R3G0f-SI4XoSByxArBodGDHHupR&index=6 Understanding Contemporary Art Full Course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYQIK-gbo8w&list=PLTRal7R3G0f8E9rOf82XbZiBhL6IxzDCJ&index=1 Art After Metaphysics: http://www.amazon.com/After-Metaphysics-John-David-Ebert/dp/1492765481/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1450485945&sr=8-1&keywords=art+after+metaphysics Naked Emperors: Criticisms of English Contemporary Art: http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Emperors-Criticisms-English-Contemporary-ebook/dp/B00JOS49TC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1451990337&sr=8-3&keywords=naked+emperors Art21
