  • Handmade and Manmade

      Minimal, to the point, and with a twist; exactly how I would describe Ben Medansky Ceramics. Sculptor Medansky started his company in a small Los Angeles studio at just 24 years old. Since then, Medansky has moved studios where all of the work is now designed, crafted by hand, and shipped to other locations. Ben Medansky is not afraid to break the rules. If he has an idea, he will go ahead and make it out of clay, even if it is not the norm. Ben Medansky Ceramics includes the basics with mugs and bowls. And then the not so basics, like pipes. Medansky’s work is collected throughout the…

  • Safety In Numbers: A Collaborative Art Benefit Show

    Photo collage by Kevin Kurecki   Jessica Nixon’s collaborative community art event, Safety in Numbers, featuring a wide range of visual art, music, performance art and film, will take place this Friday at The Monstrosity in Austin, TX. The intention behind the show is to bring a community together to experience a night of culture in hopes of raising money for SafePlace, a local non-profit organization that seeks to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change.   Organizer and curator Nixon has put together community art events in the past, including Pythagoras Discovering the Musical Intervals at Pump Project back in 2012.

  • Female Exploration

    Based out of New York City, NY, Richard Supriano is an 18 year old graphic designer and artist currently attending Parsons the New School for Design. Supriano uses dots to create female erotic poses from selfies to show that female bodies are simply bodies and don’t always need to be sexualized. Upon first view of Supriano’s art, the viewer can clearly make out a female body, but as the viewer zooms in closer and on each individual piece and specific dot, the art (and body) becomes distorted. Here is a three-piece collection to Supriano’s nine piece series. To view the rest of his collection and artwork you can follow him…

  • Kevin Kurecki Takeover!

      Based out of Chicago, Illinois, 26 year old artist Kevin Kurecki moved to Austin, TX as a way of escape from the harsh winters as well as a change from his northern environment, and has been loving the city ever since. Focusing primarily on photography and handmade collage art over the last few years has provided Kurecki with a means of expressing himself via a different portal away from this world into his own. His art stemmed initially from writing down all his personal musings, lyrics, art, and sayings in a moleskin notebook, which unfortunately got destroyed along the way during his life travels. Kurecki mentions that his art…

  • ORDER ISSUE 3 “The Book Of You”

      Hey friends! Issue 3 of ANON is titled “The Book of You” and featured  the work of over a dozen international artists of all sorts. Not only is this mag about love, hate, sex, and relationships (stuff we can all relate to), but it is also being handmade for you as a BOOK! That’s right – you’re getting a full book out of us this time around. So, understandably, the price reflects the costs of printing and materials for binding. Because the price is a bit higher than we normally charge, we are ONLY charging what it costs to make (and ship) these books! Nothing extra. So buy this…

  • Maybe You Are

    I’ve got this feeling we don’t ever truly get to finish what we create – artwork, songs, books, anything we put our soul in – like they’re just fragments of something else, universal and eternal. So I was wondering, what could be the true, whole artwork? Well, maybe you are, you without boundaries and conclusions, you messing around with life, you beautiful disaster, you who doesn’t know what you’re doing all the time but still create beautiful, irreplaceable things.   I shot this series to celebrate myself, to remind myself not to always take myself for granted, to look at myself with brand new eyes.   Hope it’ll inspire someone…

  • Layers and Stitches

    Based out of Toronto, visual artist Frances Sousa has been featured in ADONE Magazine, Pudge Magazine, as well as had her work displayed at The Black Cat art gallery in Toronto, Canada.   By using a variety of patterns and textures, Sousa succeeds in creating rich depth and near tangibility in her artwork. The resonance of soft pastel colors and an original choice in material draw forth a sense of nostalgia, as shown in the following four pieces.   You can discover more of Sousa’s artwork on her Tumblr page.   Landscapes   Untitled   Overlap #7   Free Stitch  

  • So You’re Naked… (What Next?)

    I’m sure a majority of people would agree with me when I say that being naked is fucking awesome, because hey, it is. No restricting clothes, or pockets full of useless shit…what could be better than that? Now, I can’t say that I’m all about running through the streets of New York bare ass naked, but I might just spend the weekend feeling that extra breeze as I walk around my apartment, if you know what I mean. So, in case you might be considering doing the same, I’ve compiled a list of the best things to do naked so you won’t feel like such a nude n00b.   First,…

  • What We’re Loving: VERUM

    Take a look into your closet. Chances are you’ll see a rainbow of cheap tanks, flimsy tees, and trendy-for-about-five-minutes skirts filling in the gaps between your more precious pieces. It’s nearly impossible to avoid buying into the massive industry of fast fashion, especially if you’re on a student’s budget and like to switch up your look from day to day, and with high fashion becoming cheapened by rampant logomania and a decreased attention to the craftsmanship that makes designer desirable in the first place, these so-called investment pieces often aren’t worth the investment anymore.   Fashion is art, but it’s hard to see the artistry when fashion becomes more about…

  • Surreal Selfies

    About four years ago, Jennifer Nguyen’s parents got separated. As a Father’s Day gift, Jennifer’s mom was going to be giving a new DSLR camera to replace her husband’s really old one, but they ended up getting divorced, so Jennifer ended up with it instead. Selfies were never the same again. That’s when she started shooting and became very interested in the craft.  Jennifer’s currently shooting with a Canon 6D, and she’s seeing through Canon 24-105mm f/4.0 L, Canon 85mm f/1.8, and Sigma 50mm f/1.4 lenses. Her arsenal is also equipped with two handy dandy external flashes and wireless triggers. For each photo, she tries to incorporate life experiences in…

  • How I Got Here, & Where I Am Going – A Poem by Rhett Schroers

    How I Got Here, & Where I Am Going Author: Rhett Schroers ~ She asked me how I got here And I replied with a story That I was long gone Before you had known me  ~ I had plans with an angel But I left her in a forest Chased the smoke And turned back to see My plans burned downed to ashes  ~ Remnants of the angel’s essence Remind me of my idiocy And looking back in time Is staring into your eyes A deep ocean so blue With depths unknown  ~ And it is easier to get lost Than it is to be found In this crazy…

  • Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls: A Poem by Valerie Huerta

    Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls By Valerie Huerta   Kids are lighting fireworks on the two streets that make a Horseshoe where the Dallas county line breaks off into anarachy; a word that looks like two lines of dirt made by the same child’s hand.   Mrs. Peña’s kindergarten class was just released an hour early to jump the junkyard fence and make a phalanx of Oldsmobile and El Dorado bumper/ hubcaps.   My Mexican Grandma, in the mint shrub, is hiding with a Holy-Water Nerf gun, bracing Sancho, the Pekinese with a sinus infection, and the only creature that can smell Eyafjallajökull smouldering high in the South of Iceland,…

  • DO CELF: An Art

    Art? What is “art” in today’s fast paced society riddled with modern technology and seemingly no room for creativity? Well, with the first installation of this blog (which I have honestly no direction for), I am going to introduce a few movers and shakers from Dallas’s “contemporary art scene”. Fancy, huh? No, not really. These boys would want to be called anything but fancy, they are just two young men “doing art”. Over my much-needed winter break from Texas A&M University I attended, for the first time, a break event in Dallas. Which is a world all of it’s own, a come back subculture of dancers itching to express themselves…

  • Series: Machine Aesthetic (I,II,III)

    James Thompson, an upperclassmen at Texas A&M University, is an artists of many sorts. His intricate styles of both digital and film photography, painting, and graphic design make you want to contemplate the deeper meanings behind each piece of work that he produces. After hearing about ANON | Magazine, he sent in a portion of his portfolio to us entitled “Machine Aesthetic,” which, is a series of pieces. He sent us piece I, piece II, and piece III. If there is more to come in this series, we definitely can’t wait. “In a society where art has become just about as industrialized as culinary products, authenticity has lost its place.…
