"The print is based of an original artwork that was produced a few years back for a group show at our old gallery PerSquareMetre. I was exploring degradation and layering and also painting
on found objects. The original piece belongs to my wife and she wont give it up!
The original piece was created using a combination of acrylic paint and spray enamel. The artwork is painted on an old print that belonged to my Mother. I really liked the texture and weathering of the timber on the back so that’s the side I chose to paint. The cheesy 50’s
print is still on the other side."- Dvate

Street Art isn’t appreciated by everyone. Many think graffiti is a form of vandalism and in most places is even punishable. But some artists succeed to convince even the most negative viewers. One such artist is Patrick Commecy whose art is never seen as vandalism – on the contrary, people think his pieces enrich and enhance the image of the streets. You'll understand by the images below why he is this week's art crush... Don't just look at the whole image though, find what the walls used to look like before Patrick got to them!
The new year is here and it’s time for resolutions and revolutions. 1AM is only a day away from the new gallery opening and they’re excited to be joined by over 25 amazing artists, including Just Another Artist Does.
"The work and variety put into each piece is in itself revolutionary, but don’t just take our word for it―see it for yourself. Come meet the artists and celebrate 1AM’s 6th anniversary at the 1AM Revolution opening."
Opening January 8th, 6:30 – 9:30pm.
We are deeply saddened and troubled by the news that most of us woke up to this morning: three masked gunman storming into the offices of Paris-based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people – including two policemen. According to the Guardian, the attack occurred at "11.30am on Wednesday after the magazine’s staff had gathered for their weekly editorial meeting."
You feel a connection even though the publications are vastly different. These journalists were targets, working in a country with free speech. Working under the pretense of free speech, controversial content is meant to spark debate. It is meant to incite discourse, not violence.
Today, we send our thoughts and respect to journalists around the world who continue to publish, driven by the power of free speech and to the friends and families of those injured or killed in this horrific event.
A team of artisans have worked with 1,000 individually hand-drawn illustrations from faces and furry critters to hearts and winter hats to make up the ‘latte motion project’. layered with cocoa powder and rich, foamy milk, the cups of coffee find their way around the frame, setting the story in motion though their careful placement meticulously drawn expressions. take a look at the full feature below, and a behind-the-scenes look into the making-of the stop-motion short.
This series, found within the archives of the British Museum, is exactly what it advertises: 26 landscape scenes shaped as letters of the alphabet. The lithographs are from sometime between 1818 and 1860 and were printed by an illustrator named Charles Joseph Hullmandel and are absolutely exquisite!
