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]

Right now, my favorite London-based fashion blogger, Susie Bubble, is on holiday in Santa Monica. “Is it Blackpool? Great Yarmouth? No it's Santa Monica,” she writes.
Right now, my best friend’s plane takes off from Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport en route to Poland by way of Israel.
Right now, Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” repeats in my ear buds.
Right now, I’m writing from a balcony overlooking a rocky jetty in the Pacific Ocean where on July... [more]

James B. Clover at Yeelen Gallery
There is actual art out there within the walls of Miami’s white cubes and there is a strong possibility that it will make you feel something other than a hang-over. Where is it going to be? Within the confines of the new 10,000 square foot space now occupied by Yeelen Gallery, in Little Haiti.
Yeelen will be exhibiting the American artist and consummate academician James B. Clover this September, opening reception with the artist will be on September... [more]
Florian Maier-Aichen’s recent show at 303 Gallery—his fourth to date—splits into two distinct sets of photographs. One series is landscape oriented; the other is markedly abstract. Almost all of the photographs are printed on a large scale, the average size being roughly equivalent to the face of a vending machine. This may be the primary characteristic of these works; because they are large—and from a distance appear full of detail—one is naturally compelled to look... [more]

The complex, layered works range in color from sunset reds and oranges to warm and playful fuschias to el... [more]
As I left for the infamous Amertec building in Hialeah—a twenty-minute drive from Miami—worrying about the coming rain, a friend warned me: “Check first, the weather’s different there.”
Designed by Chayo Frank in 1969, when he was fresh out of the University of Oklahoma’s College of Architecture, the building is a curvy, organelle-shaped, surreally tropical structure. Depending on one’s perspective, it’s a futurist masterpiece or bizarre opus, a work of u... [more]

Elizabeth Hoeveler (ASC) commenting Immo Jalass's artworks
How many dimensions can we see? Three, on a 'normal day. On a 'normal' day, however, I might be fooled into thinking I'm somewhere else - or many other places at the same time, while looking at Immo Jalass's digital offerings. I can cross dimensions and have a foot in several. I can extend the one dimension I'm in and reshape it to my wish. I can focus on a fruit color and have that color move back or forward out of the fruit bowl. Immo Jala... [more]
Scream are proud to present the first solo exhibition by young British artist Caroline Jane Harris. The artist explores the complexities of nature through a labour-intensive paper-cutting technique. Harris is inspired by the natural world and is conscious of the strong yet subtle links between natural life forms and us. She explores the intricacy and beauty of nature, which echo human and man-made systems, by responding to visual phenomena such as geometric, linear and circular motifs found in a... [more]
