Specialized accounts emerge every day on Instagram, giving rise to totally improbable curations. Tastes and colors differ so much from one person to another that the passions of others can sometimes seem absurd to us. Slightly obsessive Instagram accounts compile for example photos of clothing labels or seats in the public transit. An account specializing in toilet paper currently caught...
Contemporary American artist Daniel Arsham develops the conflict between future and past in a beautiful project with the oxymoronic name, Future Relic, which aims to show how modern everyday objects will be discovered and perceived in the future as relics by archaeologists.

Muted color palettes and distorted features are typical of Ryan Hewett’s work. The South African artist is best known for his iconic portraits of world-known figures — like Winston Churchill or Edie Sedgwick. His latest works continue the long-running trend of disconcerting the observer. The painter has captured the essence of his spectral subjects— and with the strokes of...

After spending much time in museums or in the shadows, Keith Haring's works seem to be slowly returning to the streets. Regardless of the fact that it had been disassembled more than three decades ago, a work by Keith Haring returned back to the streets of New York last May. It is now the turn of a giant mural...
Anthony Howe never ceases to amaze us with his art. His latest project to date is his impressive kinetic sculptures. These gargantuan sculptures are powered by the wind or engines that allow the creation of hypnotic movements, similar to tentacles or extraterrestrial spacecraft.
