The Magical Artwork of Lustik

Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew – also known as Lustik – is highly regarded in his home nation Thailand, where he has scooped a whole host of national art prizes, winning the National Art Prize for Painting twice before he had even turned 28. On first sight – and even last sight – his art looks like an illusion, a deft sleight of...

The Diffrent Selves of Cristina Troufa

Self-portraiture seems to me to be the most intimidating and frustrating artistic theme to tackle. We’re all our own worst critic and you’ve got to be pretty self-aware to not completely crumple into a mass of self-pity and existential crisis once you’ve begun deconstructing your very essence, just to put it out there for strangers to see...

The Vibrant Collages of Maike Lüdenbach

Hello everyone! My name is Maike Lüdenbach, and I’m an artist based in Vienna, Austria who has chosen collage and working with different materials as my main artistic form to express myself. Trough meticulously cutting out different images from old lexicons or high end fashion magazines, I try to absorb the actual social agenda...

The Incredibly Dynamic 3D Street Art of Odeith

The Otherwordly Photography of Stefano Bonazzi

Whether it’s a blindfolded woman, decked out in a black evening dress, being ‘protected’ by a bear in the middle of a vast wilderness, or another masked lady finding herself surrounded by wolves, his subjects find themselves in a seemingly...

The Dreamy Escapism of Lena Klyukina

Lena Klyukina admits to liking the idea of infinity, and enjoys finding wonder with the world. Her sci-fi inspired art attests to this; humanoids interact with sea monsters, whilst pyramidal structures float in the sky, the lights from a cluster of stars dazzling them. Insects from the future graze on the corpses of headless humans, whilst females...

The Good and Bad Andy Warhol and Jean-Michael Basquiat Collaboration

The collaborative relationship between Andy Warhol and Jean-Michael Basquiat developed in the 1980s after they were introduced to each other by art dealer Bruno Bischofberger. This relationship – both personal and professional, the good and the bad – was detailed in The Andy Warhol Diaries. Beginning in 1976, Andy Warhol began calling his...
