Art or Not?  
7/24/15 Posted 7/24/15

Art or Not? You thought you had the art world sussed, but every once in a while it chucks you a curve ball. In short, sometimes art can seem like a joke. What if we strip away the nonsense jargon—is the artwork still an artwork? What if we attribute those words to a different image—does that make it more legit? Every week, we ask our readers to play a game of guess who, and enjoy moment of irreverance in an oh-so-serious art world... This week: which pile of goo was made by an art... [more]

Art or Not? "An intellect says a simple thing in a hard way, an artist says a hard thing in a simple way"—Bukowski once quipped. On our weekly meanderings through galleries and press releases, we seem to find that the art world is full of both. Each week, we select some of our findings and ask you to have some fun figuring out with us just what is art, what is artifice, and what is just bottles of cleaning product. This week: One of the images described below is a genuine piece and text by... [more]

Comicon North Article by Rebecca Romani It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder. ... [more]

Did Starbucks Really Rip Off Maya Hayuk's Artwork?  
7/13/15 Posted 7/13/15

Image via Starbucks Every artist worth their salt has their own distinctive aesthetic, and that proves especially important for graffiti and street art, where artists compete directly in the public space, not only to catch the eye of the passerby but to build an instantly recognizable identity within their community. Graffiti, after all, is all about whose tag is "up" the most in a territory. Brooklyn-based Maya Hayuk works both in the streets and the studio and her aesthetic is ubiquitous. With its pop ne...

Art or Not?  
7/3/15 Posted 7/3/15

Art or Not? When we're doing our weekly rounds of the world's galleries and musuems, we sometimes find ourselves baffled. The press release and the art work often don't seem to add up. And what about those fleeting encounters with the natural beauty that surrounds us, the perfect poetry of a passing moment? Every week, we ask our readers to have some fun with us and tell us, what is art, and what is not? This week, it's a foggy question. #1 A graduate of the Royal College of Art, London,... [more]

Posted 6/30/15

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

Art or Not?  
6/26/15 Posted 6/26/15

Art or Not? Do you ever walk into a gallery, and feel like you're missing something? Art can sometimes confuse you. But what does make something art, or not? Is it context, words, or the audience, who says what flies in the gallery? Every week, we ask our readers to stop taking the art world so seriously for a little minute and try and play a game of spot the difference. This week: which of the unusual scenes below is documents a performance exhibited at a Welsh art institute? #1 Staged in the glo... [more]
