First of all, I think the everyone’s art is the embodies of his / her own cultural knowledge and cultural connotation. Everyone speaks on his / her cultural background. Different cultural backgrounds, and different social experience can lead to different ideas, then create different arts. Everyone just exerts his / her knowledge and wisdom as much as possible.
I would like to explore the more deep-seated things by exploring the philosophy of time and space, and see the essence of thi... [more]

It Was For the Children
Photo of Simon Metke, 33, by Jana G. Pruden via Edmonton Journal
Edmonton resident and small time weed dealer Simon Metke had no idea he was in possession of a stolen ancient Persian artifact valued at $1.2 million, so just chill out. Canadian officials raided Metke’s apartment late last month, and (according to the Edmonton Journal) Metke was just sort of like, woah, “What the heck is going on?”
“There’s like 20 RCMP officers flooding my... [more]
Google's Doodle is really gay
To coincide with the opening of the Sochi Games today, Google protested Russia’s anti-gay “propaganda” laws through its Google Doodle, a rainbow banner with bobsledders, snowboarders, and figure skaters.
In addition to the doodle, Google quotes the Olympic Charter's anti-discrimination clause. This, apparently, not only to imply that Russia is not acting in the spirit of the Olympics, but also so that we don’t confuse it as simply an... [more]
Rene Ricard for Vice Fashion in 2009, photo by Mirabelle Marden.

A teenage runaway, Ricard fled his hometown of Acushnet, Massachusetts for Boston and later New York in the late 60s, immersi... [more]
But What Does it All Mean?
An Exploration of John Randall Nelson’s “Polka Dots For Holly Solomon”
By Kristin Bauer
“To be or not to be: that is the question.” It may be terribly cliché to begin anything with the aforementioned Shakespeare quote, so overly referenced, adapted and turned over in our modern society that it has been rendered virtually meaningless. However, in discussing the recent body of work, Polka Dots for Holly Solomon, by artist John Randa... [more]

Australian artist Paul Yore, known for his beautifully intricate quilts depicting children touching themselves while dancing around a huge penis, will appear in court this, um…, Valentine’s Day to face charges for, uh…, producing and possessing child pornography. Police seized the artist’s work, including his masterpiece, “Everything is F---ed” which was on display at the, um…, potentially catholic St Kilda&r... [more]
I am in the middle of exploring balance, process, definition of a book...
my work is based on intuitive exploratory process, but in the middle of making I have trouble when my mind steps in and wants to pose questions: when is enough? when to stop? what do you want with this? how will others see this? will they see what you see? do you need to explain? does it have to be understood?
I know that even I don't need to know what is this about.
of course we all know all the answers, but they are n... [more]

The painting below is the beautiful interpretation of Mossa Tine of the mode of transport most used in Senegal. This painting is a reminder of the disappearance of the urban jewel.
Words from the artist
"This painting perfectly illustrates my history with ‘Le car rapide’ which has become an urban symbol, renowned in Senegal. I am proud to be the first artist Senegalese to have visually painted ‘the Fast Car’ (le car rapide) in giving them their present appearance. It&rsqu... [more]
