The Mosaic Mandala Series: Native Utah Elements is a collection of found object designs by Matt W. Moore. A divergent move from the artist’s usual urban artwork, the new series collects natural totems from Powder Mountain and the surrounding valleys in Eden, Utah. Moore then placed the pieces in geometric arrangements, a process he describes as being “like playing caveman Tetris.” Inspired by and created at the artist residency SUMMIT, ...

Boom City Photographs Look Inside Fireworks

Photographer Andrew Waits’ Boom City photo series examines fireworks, smoke balls, and pop it rocks that have been cut open so viewers can see the powder and string. Set against a black background, the color and texture of each explosive stands out just as much as a firework in the night.

“Always Shameless” Art Exhibit by Eugenio Merino

Photography and Street Art Meet in Brooklyn

Landline is an imaginative photo series by the Brooklyn-based artist Aakash Nihalani. The subjects are hipsters in plain white tees. Seemingly punctured by geometric forms, the people in the images are visually connected to one another in an oddball-romantic way. Though the shapes may at first look like Photoshop editing, they are actually neon tape alliques. Reminiscent of comic books and pop art, the surreal portraits make up a playful ...
