Art Talk – Matt Mignanelli
Mignanelli’s paintings may seem simple at first glance, but spend more time with them and you’ll start to admire the patterns created by light and energy. We spent a day with Matt at his studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and talked about his work, life, and strong American work ethic while eating some amazing pizza.

Art Talk: Rostarr
Romon Kimin Yang, a.k.a. Rostarr, is a painter, calligrapher, and filmmaker living and working in Brooklyn. He spent much of his early career focusing on painting and graphic design, blurring the lines between the two. For the past 15 years, he has been more widely known for his abstract polymorphic paintings, sculptures, and black-and-white calligraphic drawings. Rostarr pushes all boundaries in his work, always striving to find freedom within style, medium, and form. He builds upon the visual language he calls “graphysics,” a word that exemplifies the geometric dynamism characteristic in his work. VICE recently met up with him in Mexico City as he prepared for his most recent solo show, Turbo Arena, at Anonymous Gallery. We sat down with him to discuss his style, techniques, and approach to art making. Presented by Comex.

Art Talk: Meet Ghost of a Dream
Ghost of a Dream is the collaboration of sculptor Lauren Was and painter Adam Eckstrom. Focusing on installation, sculpture, and collage, the married couple have had numerous solo and group shows around the world, and they’ve been featured in Art Forum, Whitewall magazine, The Independent, and Time Out New York,to name a few. A few months ago we met up with them and got a chance to explore their works in progress, look at the variety of materials they use (like old lottery tickets), and hear how they came to develop the pieces that first formed their partnership.
While websites remain relatively accessible, getting your hands on a particular domain name can be problematic. Artist Rafaël Rozendaal, who makes websites as artworks and sells the domain names to guarantee exclusivity to the piece, believes domains are the only scarce things on the internet.
His websites vary in scope; some, like From the Dark Past, have moving patterns affected by the mouse’s positioning, while others seem to unfold in front of you regardless of your clicking and hovering, like Love Game Set.
