Andrew Warhola (August 6, 1928 February 22, 1987), more commonly known as Andy Warhol, was an American painter, filmmaker and conceptual artist, who was a leading figure in the movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer, author, and public figure known for his membership in wildly diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats.

Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books, and feature and documentary films.

Warhol coined the concept of “15 minutes of fame”, which refers to the fleeting condition of fame in the modern world, mainly attributed to mass media and transience in human beings.

“My idea of government is maybe different than other people’s,” says New York-based artist Ron English. “There are certain things we can’t do as individuals so we form our government to do things like create highways and put together national defense systems, but these people work for us. Now the whole country wants to smoke weed, except for a very small percent, yet the people we hired put us in jail and terrorize us and spend all our money on cannabis prohibition. Does that not seem like a problem?”

English is one of the world’s foremost street artists, and he’s spent decades using public space to call attention to issues ranging from corporate marketing and Trumpism to free speech and cannabis prohibition. In the past, he got busted for street art and even had to dodge the police in Philadelphia as recently as last fall, but none of it has stopped him from speaking out. PRØHBTD met with English at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles to learn more about life as an art outlaw.

Anat Geva – ‘The Collaboration of Sacred Architecture and Art in Modern American Synagogues’



Anat Geva, a professor in the Department of Architecture, presents “The Collaboration of Sacred Architecture and Art in Modern American Synagogues.”

The presentation was given at “Natural, Built, Virtual,” the 19th annual Texas A&M College of Architecture Research Symposium, Oct. 23 in the Langford Architecture Center’s Preston Geren Auditorium. The daylong session showcased research and creative work by college faculty and, for the first time, doctoral students.

More on Natural, Built, Virtual here: http://symposium.arch.tamu.edu/2017/

Project Summary:

The second commandment “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” was interpreted through history as a restriction of any artistic creation to be part of synagogues.

Art and artifacts in synagogues were confined only to liturgical objects and were considered as functional religious items, which were labeled as Judaica art and craft.2 The significance of artwork in synagogues and its acceptance by congregations started to be notable post WW II in America, as part of Jewish search for their identity.3 This search was influenced by the events of the holocaust, the establishment of the state of Israel, and the realization of the American value of freedom of religion.4 Congregations and their leaders perceived modern architecture and American Abstract Expressionist Art5 as enhancing their physical and spiritual existence. Some claim that it was the time of awareness of the mutual relationship between religion and art as lifting the Jewish soul and as essential to Jewish survival.

6 The move of congregations to the suburbs during that era enabled them to start a-new and build their synagogues as a modern institution that manifested the American Jewry identity through architecture and art.7 This paper illustrates the influence of this context on the collaboration between sacred architecture and art in modern American synagogues, and how artists saw Jewish and biblical themes as an extension of their general Abstract Expressionist imagery.

The examples in this paper show the architects that created the artwork as part of their architecture, while others commissioned artist to integrate their art into the building. This exhibits the variety of collaboration of sacred architecture and art and its media (e.g., paintings, murals, sculptures).

The ATOMIC bomb changed the Japanese people forever.
8-bit console games are a loving part of Japan’s POP culture nowadays.
I felt that both the atomic bomb and the 8-bit consoles are powerful symbols of 20th century’s civilization, at least as experienced by the Japanese people.
And, so, POP ATOMIC was born.
Enjoy it. Arigato^^

Mikati has been a long-time business partner and friend.
She talked to me about her concept for this year’s Burn2 event.
I loved it and asked her if she needed any help.
Luckily she did and I contributed my part 🙂
