Ben Pederson has a new website

"Sad Sap," mixed media, 20" x 16", 2011

If you've followed the BxT blog for any amount of time, you've likely seen a Ben Pederson video. He makes Post-Pop Surrealist art. Or you could say he makes Post-Minimal Psychedelic Mannerist art. The point is that Pederson's work deals greatly with themes of identity and pop culture and defies easy categorization. Check out his site and see how his gaudy aesthetic (I mean that in the best way possible) translates across different media. I'm consistently impressed by how Pederson is able to make poignant and personal statements in such a day-glo way. No small feat.

What the heck is Justin Horne doing?

I wonder that from time to time. As if to answer, he sent me these amazing photos. I don't know how he does it. It's like NYC is his zen garden. He is a real artist.
