Cool oil painting by Kevin Cyr. A NYC van, complete with rust, dents, and graffiti. And upon close examination… ALONE and NET marker tags (under a paint tag) on the door. Haha.. New York City!
“In Praise Of Rust” by Kevin Cyr
Here’s a few more of his paintings…
NEW YORK, NY (April 3, 2012) — Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to announce In Praise of Rust, a series of new oil paintings on panel by New York-based artist Kevin Cyr, in what will be his first solo exhibition at the gallery.
In Praise of Rust features paintings of old vehicles seen on the streets of New York—primarily vans and commercial delivery trucks—covered in graffiti, rust, scratches, scuffs, dents and other marks of distinction. Cyr includes a meticulous level of detail in his portrait-like representations with devoted attention to every imperfection and sign of age. Removing the context of the urban landscape, he places a strong focus on his subjects by isolating them in fields of flat, solid color.
The neglected appearance and utilitarian function of these vans carry a bit of nostalgia. Once ubiquitous in large urban cities, they have now become far more rare, replaced by heavily branded box trucks. In the artist’s words, “painting them is my way of documenting a grit that is slowly disappearing from New York. In a culture where people are lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find so much character in derelict vans. I have always been interested in painting vehicles that have defined the evolution of the American landscape.”
On the subject of his exhibition title, Cyr says “Rust serves as a good metaphor for this series, a symbol for deterioration and decay. The meaning also changes slightly when used as an adjective, as in: to become ‘rusty’ or impaired through inaction or disuse.”
Common themes in Cyr’s larger body of work have included mobility, sustainability and self-reliance. Referencing consumer culture and the fuel/energy crisis, these paintings offer a subtle commentary on how rapidly the technology of our generation becomes perceived as obsolete, amid an increasingly unstable and uncertain climate of economic and environmental issues.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Kevin Cyr was born in 1976 in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada. He grew up in Madawaska, Maine and received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Cyr is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. His paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations have been exhibited by galleries and museums, internationally. In March 2012, Cyr’s work was the subject of an article in The New York Times. Cyr was recently interviewed by fellow artist Dan Witz for a feature that will appear in the May 2012 issue of Juxtapoz, and the May 2012 issue of NYLON Magazine will include a story on Cyr, as well.

For me , I’ll get to have less clutter on my hard drive, and for you.. plenty of stolen-from-the-internet flicks to enjoy. Alot of them are where I get inspiration, some will make you laugh, some are just amazing images, and you will definitely love them all. Here’s a small sample…

It’s no secret that skateboards and the skateboard industry, like most industries, create a tremendous amount of waste in the process of production. Though there are several companies that espouse an environmental consciousness, few have made real strides in trying to marry their images with their actual production process. Enter, East Coast OG and former Zoo York pro Robbie Gangemi. Gangemi, a Boston and New York staple of the latter 1990s, started his own board brand, Vehicle in ’99. In 2010 Vehicle is looking to be the first board company out to manufacture boards almost entirely out of recycled materials. He can even use the excess wood normally scrapped by other companies in the process of cutting shapes out of veneer. And since Gangemi’s name has always been synonymous with pop and style, you know the board feel is gonna come correct. Contributing writer, Matt Higgins spoke to Gangemi at length for his piece about action sports companies trying to do things a little more environmentally-friendly.

Corpus Christi Judge gives an 18 year old an 8 year sentence. But this is different than the 8 year sentence handed to another graffiti artist in August. This is 8 FULL years. NO chance of parole. 8 Years. $140.000 in taxpayer money to jail this “criminal”. The next 8 years of an 18 year olds life. For spraypainting. This is the same Corpus Christi that gave a paint SUPPLIER 2 years a few months back. Fuck Texas.
