The Berlin Reunion: a Jumbo Marionette Performance
By October 16, 2009

Earlier this week, 1.5 million people filled the streets of Berlin, Germany to watch a several-day performance by France’s Royal de Luxe street theatre company titled “The Berlin Reunion”. Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult – but successful – expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart. I’ll let the photos below tell the rest of the story.

I can imagine these fancy pumpkins lighting the way to a swanky Halloween party, can’t you? The simple DIY instructions for making these come from Martha Stewart and can be found here.

The greatest thing about these designer pumpkins is that they are actually a bit easier to make  than carving out a fancy design….as long as you have a drill handy. And they are so cute!

According to his website, “Jeremiah Ketner, a chicago based artist who tends to paint charming little creatures floating through pastel dreamscape’s. His Japanese pop art influenced imagery tends to describe the a more casual and carefree side of life. Ketner has been busy painting and exhibiting his works all over the nation.” Great work Jeremiah!

Jean-Michel Basquiat

Today we’re featuring the original *art star* himself, Jean-Michel Basquiat aka SAMO (his infamous signature that stands for “same old shit”). I was talking to a friend about New York artists this morning, and when I found out he didn’t know of Basquiat, I got online in a frenzy and sent a bunch of info and images his way. Then I thought, why not dedicate this Friday post to Basquiat? His reckless abandon that characterized both his art and his life just pulses through his art in the most powerful way. You can feel the pure energy oozing off his paintings, they are positively screaming at the viewer! Classified as a neo-expressionist and hailing from Brooklyn, Basquiat began painting graffiti on the streets and ended an art icon, his work very famous at the time of his tragic death at 27 from a massive drug overdose. He dated Madonna and hung out with Warhol. His art was alive with a primitive, unexplainable force. He was one of a kind. Here’s to you Basquiat…
