Love the whimsy in style yet deep meaning to Russian artist Lora Zombie‘s work
Love this Glow-in-the-dark poster by Orlando based artist/designer Jason Dean.
During the day its a wonderfully illustrated town scene but turn the lights off and it’s seedy side comes out, brilliant!
Be quick if you want to get one of the 60 edition prints here as i’m sure they won’t take long to get snapped up.
Thanks MyModernMet for sharing.
Great little project by British Red Cross to help raise money for the Japan Tsunami Appeal. At Eastern Eggs they have got a selection of popular illustrators/artists to produce cracking (pardon the pun) illustrations to appear on solid wood eggs which you can get your mitts on for a reasonable £10 donation.
I just ordered a Paul Pateman version, which ones your favourite?
Want to visit the MoMA in New York, the Museo Thyssen in Madrid, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam or the National Gallery in London but don’t have the finances or time to travel to these great galleries to see the masterpieces of the world?
Well now you can thanks to Art Project by Google. They have taken their streetview technology inside the doors of the galleries/museums around the world enabling art lovers to appreciate the pieces on show without leaving their seat. You can even zoom into selected pieces at each location to see brush-stoke level of detail.
I think this could open so many doors in education, inspiring the talent of the future by exposing them to work they might never have been able to get up close and personal with.
Well done Google!
Beautiful video showing the creation of Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama‘s Water Sculptures.
I’ve been a follower of Banksy’s work for some time (since seeing this on the wall around the corner from Arsenals old home ‘Highbury’) and was gutted I wasn’t able to get Bristol to see his exhibition last year but glad to see since the release of “Exit through the gift shop” in the states his popularity has gone through the roof over there too. Here’s a small selection of his more recent works found across North America during his time there….
Here’s a trailer for the film which I can’t wait to see once it’s released over here…

I’ve just been made aware of the awe inspiring work by French artist Xavier Veilhan and had to share some of it! The scale of some of his pieces simply blow me away and would love to see some of these in person.
Check out a great post on his work over at My Modern Met.
