Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticit... [more]

For many occasions like birthdays and weddings, photographs are an integral part. People take pictures of those attending these occasions and then later on, develop the prints and keep it as cherished memories. In many cases, they are not sure about the quality of pictures, because all are not adept in handling cameras and do not know the right shots. So, people hire a photographer, who will then arrange the set up to get the right frames. But, the photo booth in Kent is able to provide ready pi... [more]
Earlier this month, London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz made headlines with his 3D-printed "nano" sculptures. Each sculpture is approximately 80 x 100 x 20 microns—so small that they can only be viewed using an electron microscope.
The sculptures are an impressive, ambitious use of 3D printing technology in fine art. With help from the Weizemann Institute of Technology, Hurwitz used over 200 cameras and a groundbreaking 3D printing technique referred to on his website as “Multiphoton Li... [more]

Jonathan Jones writes an art blog for the Guardian newspaper. I read his column with the same morbid fascination I used to reserve for those times when I’d come across a piece by Julie Burchill. Which is to say I begin with the nascent thrill of knowing my pique is going to be stimulated, followed by a good bit of private outrage, and finally a satisfying wallow in indignation. None of these are particularly attractive human characteristics; they are, however, pleasurable and best practiced either... [more]

Making the art world accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
Visual art is rarely understood unless it is reckoned with in person. Even then, it is often difficult to really see what an artist is trying to express, especially with the many abstract works that have come out of modernism. A huge part of the viewing experience involves being able to face works that artists created in real time and in real space. Being able to comprehend and feel what Mark Rothko felt when he... [more]
As the saying goes, all art is, in the end, about sex or death. They're the two oldest themes in art history. But then at some point someone must have thought, how about getting them both in there, and creating the best art ever? And then a lot of other people thought that'd be a good idea too. And then it went to some weird grisly places and became a bit scary. Here's our selection of the most macabre love moments in art.

By way of introduction, Cameron Crone's first solo-show at Jancar Jones, Reflow the Logic Board, is a testament to just how strange and surprising photography can get. The artist presents color photographs of to-scale beach towels, their terrycloth weaves intervened with kitty litter dripped-sand-castle-y patterns, all laid out on some mysterious concrete ground. Crone has also fabricated a series of urban-aqueduct-cum-skate-ramp sculptures, with terrazzo beveled curves and arcs. The work is very... [more]
Just over a week ago, legendary East London gay pub The Joiners Arms announced it will be closing its doors (not the first announcement of this sort we've covered lately). At the heart of Hackney's LGBT club scene since 1997, the pub has been an institution that helped combat homophobia in the area, and remains an important venue for the growing gay and transvestite culture that has since become a community.
As if on cue, a new series of photographs documenting and celebrating the East London tran... [more]
Ever had the feeling weapons technology would be better suited to making love, not war? Brooklyn film company Ghost + Cow have too, and have made the world's first porno filmed by drone.The most immediate thing that hits you about the trailer of Drone Boning is how picturesque it all is; military tech manages to capture gliding shots over San Franciscan beaches, orchards, and mountain vistas. Rutting couples are placed artfully around the natural canvas in a way that wouldn't look out of place... [more]
