Asher’s Jukebox Part 193

Roll Me In (Katamaritaino) by Joseph Feliciano and GameChops from the album “Katamari Dance With MeReleased: 2014 Genres: Dance, Electronic, Jazz, Easy Listening Vocals by: Yui Asaka & Mika Sato

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of music from the crazy and amazing game, Katamari Damacy. The game is filled to the brim with charm and amazing music, and this song is no exception. This is probably my favorite piece from the game, and ever time I hear it, I get into a state of nirvana. It starts with a soft guitar and a samba like beat. Next, the melodic piano chimes in, along with some classy drumbeats. After that, we get the first experience with Yui and Mika’s vocals. The ladies sing in gorgeous Japanese, and the air fills with a calming presence. Finally, we get to my favorite part of the piece, the chorus. The vocals repeat “Ya Ya Ya Ya” multiple times, and an incredible sax solo starts playing. I highly recommend this piece to absolutely everybody, and I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

Woods Has Eyes by Larry Carlson 2020 Archival pigment print on metallic paper

This is a very fascinating, yet unsettling work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s, as suspected, an outdoor piece with some very unique characteristics. The sky is a gorgeous blend of various blues, dreamy pinks, vibrant yellows, and fiery reds. Then we get to the “meat” of the painting which takes the form of various disembodies eyes. The titular eyes seem to follow the viewer wherever they go, and it can put you on edge. This aspect, however, is the most intriguing as well. The eyes have a very hypnotic quality to them, and I believe this is what makes the genius of this work. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Una Eye Deluxe by Larry Carlson 2020 Archival pigment print on paper

This is an awesome work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The painting sort of works like a magic eye piece, in that there’s multiple repeating images that seem to change the more that you squint at it. It starts with the top, which is covered in a kaleidoscopic display of crazy fractals and abstract stars. The patterns are positioned on a cosmic black background, and this makes the piece seem alien. The center of the work houses two strange female figures with incredibly strange heads. Their “heads” are repeated pyramid-like figures with single eyes in the center. I really enjoy this piece, and would love to hear what you think in the comments’ section below.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for some new paintings to be added to my gallery. I hope you guys are ready for some amazing art pieces. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • The Age of Fire by Rene Magritte 1927 Oil on canvas 

This is an incredible work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It is very different from most of his paintings, in that it almost seems realistically visceral.  The main theme of this piece is of course, fire, and the way that he portrays it is truly mesmerizing. The work takes place outside, seemingly in the middle of the afternoon. The sky is a brilliant brown and red, and there appears to be a lake running through the background. Then, we get to the main star of the show, the fire.  The fire is being conjured up by an extremely detailed Indian Chief, who has a crimson red body that resembles blood vessels and veins. It has an almost fabric-like quality to it, and this makes it seem like the fire is moving, and that you can touch it. I absolutely adore this work, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Concentric rinds by M.C. Escher 1953 Wood engraving

This is an insanely awesome work by “Graphic Artist”, Escher. The amazingly intricate design of this piece is completely mind blowing, and it must have taken Escher years to make. The entirety of the work reminds me of some type of crazy illusionist’s take on a globe. It’s covered with astonishing fractals and other repeated geometric patterns. I also love the lack of bright colors because this allows the viewer to fill it in themselves. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 189

Starlight Brigade by TWRP (feat. Dan Avidan) from the album “Together Through Time” May 18th, 2018 Music Video Released May 23rd, 2019 Genres: Synthwave, Rock

This track is absolutely incredible, and the music video that accompanies it is mind-blowing. TWRP aka Tupper Ware Remix Party are a Canadian Synthwave band that usually play with Ninja Sex Party. They play in full costume, and their real names remain anonymous. This particular piece is one of the band’s best works, and Daniel Sexbang (The singer of Ninja Sex Party) vocals carry the piece into epic territory. It tells the story of a young boy and his trials and tribulations with a ragtag group of space hunters called the Starlight Brigade. The video is shot like a wonderful homage to Daft Punk’s Interstella   5555 (An anime-inspired movie based on Daft Punk’s album, Discovery), and it is absolutely breathtaking. The video actually played on Toonami, and people still with shower it with praise today. The instruments are bass heavy and otherworldly, and this really makes this piece memorable. They also add vocoders halfway through which works wonders to the song. What else can I say? This song is amazing, and I really would love to hear your opinions on it in the comments’ section below.

  • Penelope’s Tapestry by Rene Magritte 1943 Gouache on paper 

This is an absolutely beautiful work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It takes a unique turn from pure Surrealism, and adds Realism to the mix. It’s an outdoor piece with a misty sky and old fashioned houses. We also get a brilliant blend of snowy blue and green grass. The center of the piece houses a snowy tree, and it blends extremely well with the grass. Near the right side of the work, we see another tree, however, this one is green and planted in rich grass. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s time for another look at some truly insane pieces. Now, let’s begin this mind-blowing adventure into psychedelic heaven!

  • Visitors from the Dark Star by Larry Carlson Pigment print on metallic paper.

This is an incredibly trippy and surreal work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece takes place in a hellish forest with ink black trees and murky red sky. The whole atmosphere is extremely foreboding, and it accelerates in creepiness with the large shadowy creatures. These creatures don’t have facial features, but they do have piercing red eyes. The center of the painting seems to mirror in on itself, with repeated spookiness. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Rainbow Ride by Rae Vena 2010 Acrylic 

This is a beautiful work by a fresh artist I have yet to talk about on this blog. Her name is Rae Vena, and I met her at the Electric Forest. She does some absolutely amazing psychedelic Pop Art. This work, in particular, is very trippy and exceptionally gorgeous. The background is filled with melting rainbows, and metal platforms, and this gives it a brilliant mixture of Surrealism and Realism. In the center of the piece lies a single carousel zebra, and this humorous object brings the work all together.

  • Titian by Jean-Michel Basquiat  From The Daros Suite of 32 Drawings 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, charcoal, and pencil on paper.

This is another wonderful work by “Master Surrealist” Basquiat.  It’s another addition to the Daros Suite, and my god, it’s a good one! This particular piece has a lot of anatomical designs. We see the bone structure of a leg, as well as various green teeth. There’s also many repeated words, and one of Basquiat’s signature “heads”. Lastly, there’s for some reason, a burger situated in the middle of the painting. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Armored Train by Gino Severini 1915 Oil on Canvas 

This is an absolutely awesome Futurist piece by “Italian Painter”, Severini. The work has a very industrial feel, and definitely looks like it takes place in the future. The train is made with a very unique sheet of metal and covered with a multicolored background. The defense is comprised of multiple guards armed with high powered rifles. In conclusion this is an absolute treat of a painting that will be loved by many steampunk fans.

  • Memory of a Journey by Rene Magritte 1952 Gouche on Paper 

This is a very unique piece by “Belgian Surrealist” Magritte. It’s a humorous take on the standard “Fruit Still Life Piece”. The fruit are made out of stone, and there’s a bottle to the left side of it. The rigidness of the work lets you fill in the details with motion. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Reconnaissance without End by Rene Magritte 1946 Gouache on paper

This is a beautiful work by “Belgian Painter” Magritte. It’s an outdoor scene with a gorgeous blue sky, and creamy colored grass. There’s also a big tree in the center that houses 2 blue figures. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson  June 1st, 2018 

This is an absolutely insane work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s depicts a multicolored female figure with a normal body, and a completely bizarre “head”. Her “head” is actually a series of spray paint cans, which, themselves, are creating a rainbow masterpiece. I adore this work, and would love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Spiral Wavy  by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment Print on Paper 

This is an incredibly hypnotic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s another one of his black and white pieces, and god, it’s a feast for the eyes! It depicts a female, possibly nude, figure. Surrounding her are a ton of trippy spirals and jagged waves. The piece is almost like an optical illusion, and it draws you into the center. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Magnolia Sun by Larry Carlson Archival Pigment  Print on Metallic Paper 

This is an absolutely gorgeous work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. It’s another outdoor piece that blends Realism and Surrealism. The painting is set in a forest with two visible trees. The trees are covered with kaleidoscopic leaves that spread across the top like cosmic glitter. It adds a very trippy and beautiful atmosphere. Then, we get to the sky, and are met with a sublime display of wispy blues, purples, and pinks. The titular sun is shining through an opening on one of the trees, and it shines with a powerful yellow-orange light.

This is another beautiful painting by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. The piece takes place again outdoors, and I really love what he does with this one. The sky is an amazing blend of starry patterns, neon spiky trees, and brilliant shades of blue.  The “pond” is a large hole that holds an awesome spiral mandala, and it’s surround by some equally fantastic flowers. Tell me what you think of this painting in the comments’ section below.
