James Victore’s Crude Art

I was looking through the graphic design magazine, “GD USA” (July/August 2009 Issue) today and found a clever spread about some designers who make housewares. They are unique because they incorporate a subtle, sexual theme which may make onlookers do a double take, since they are meshed with either the more traditional art or humor. One of the artists whose work I took a liking to, was James Victore.

The magazine explained that often times he will use a black sharpie marker on a restaurant’s porcelain dish to create a drawing on the plate. The drawing will be pleasant or demeaning, depending on his experience and service. I like Victore’s renegade art form. It’s like a mix between street art/graffiti and almost performance art. Below are some plates from his site. Some of them are sexual and some are just funny.
