It’s come to my attention that the BUST blog is in serious need of some cat lovin’! Here to fix that urgent dilemma is Etsy user Kate Funk and her kitschy kitty greeting cards. Every card features Kate’s feline friend, AC, impersonating dozens of icons in a variety of scenarios that are ten thousand times cuter (yes, that’s absolutely a real statistic) when a cat is the star. You’ll find AC looking fierce as Dracula, Jaws, the Loch Ness Monster, a ... Read More

When I think of pin-up drawings, I usually think of women sprawled out in compromising positions. But artist Sashiko Yuen puts a new twist on pin-ups with her beautifully imaginative drawings. Yuen’s characters are tougher than your average calendar girls-- be they snacking on body parts, gazing at the viewer menacingly or sporting loads of tattoos. The artist adds in playful pastel bouffants, vintage silhouettes, and odd dessert-themed adornments (some of ... Read More
Whether or not you're familiar with all the details surrounding the life and work of the beautiful and tragic Frida Kahlo, chances are you've still come across some of her captivating self-portraits on more than one occasion. As one of the boldest and most influential women in history, Kahlo has inspired countless artists, writers, filmmakers, and individuals throughout the years. And while fashion designer Susanne Bisovsky may not be the first (and certainly not ... Read More
Two years ago, performance artist Marina Abramović had a much-buzzed-about retrospective, “The Artist is Present,” at the the Museum of Modern Art, and it’s the subject (and title) of a new HBO documentary by Matthew Akers and Jeff Dupre. For the retrospective, Abramović sat in a chair (without making a peep or getting up for anything--not even to use the bathroom) for three months. Between March and May 2010, from the time the MoMA ... Read More

Banksy's Bush

BY Intern Christina in Artsy |

Get your mind out of the gutter! Well, only slightly out of the gutter. British street artist Banksy's newest creations have been posted to his website, and one is more than a little suggestive. Check out the piece below, and his website for even more. Image courtesy of HighSnobiety.com ... Read More
  Adapted from an old parlor game by the Surrealist artist movement in the 1920s, Exquisite Corpse is a method of collaborative image or word collection. The method, indicative of the movement’s purpose to express the real functioning of thought, features unusual juxtaposition and the element of surprise. Sort of like round-robin, but without the whole anarchy thing, a group gathers together and one person begins either drawing, collaging, or writing ... Read More
I took a paper folding and engineering class when I was in college, and despite the shit-ton of paper cuts I got and all the times I nearly sliced my fingers open with an X-Acto knife, it ranks pretty high on my list of all-time favorite classes. No pain, no gain, right? Most people think of paper as something that you create on (you paint on it, draw on it, write on it, etc.) and don't realize that it's actually something that you can create with. It's an ...

  It's no secret that we love some quality arts and crafts here at BUST. We'll take embroidery hoops, knitting needles, and paper mache over just about anything else. What's even better than DIY-ing for fun, though, is putting your crafty skills to good use! Danish artist Hanne Bang is spearheading a project called "In A War Someone Has to Die," which is a transnational effort to unite women against a common enemy: war. Bang seeks to collect handkerchiefs ... Read More
