paintvrlife:

Brian Mashburn graduated from UNC at Chapel Hill in 2002 with a BFA in Painting and Drawing.

After spending time in Hong Kong, Thailand, and China, the endless tides of skyscrapers and citizenry left an indelible imprint on his work. As a model of the escalating urban condition, the sheer density of population and infrastructure was sublime as it teetered on the tipping point. Like the seductive draw of an epic disaster, he travels this path towards overload in both subject matter and style.

Brian describes the inspiration of his work by saying, “In the end, they both produce a polluted, drab landscape.”

In 1940, knowing that France was falling into the hands of the Germans, the workers of the Louvre took action. All 400,000 works were evacuated and sent to the south of France. In secret they transported the priceless paintings and statues, and held by wealthy families in Vichy,where they would remain for five years, only returning at the end of the war.The quick action of the workers without a doubt saved the masterpieces from becoming part of the over 5 million works that were looted by the Nazis during the war.

Imagine how cool it would be to have been one of those family’s keeping the artwork safe. Like, oh yeah the Mona Lisa is chilling on my dining room table nbd. Need a cup? Ok its next to the fucking Venus De Milo

"We live in a world where losing your phone is more dramatic than losing your virginity"

Um ok but I don’t recall my virginity having 16 GB of memory with all my contacts, music, photos, calendars, and apps or costing over $200.

my phone is an expensive and important material object and not a useless social construct put in place to shame and commodify women

Plus I remember where I lost my virginity.

I’m dead
