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 plasticity and abi... [more]
They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]

God first spoke to me when I was 8, while sitting in a wooden church pew in a sanctuary that was outfitted like a synagogue. I recall it was during the part in the "Jewish" ( I cannot verify this is actually a traditional Jewish practice, as I have never seen it happen in any subsequent standardized "Jewish" services) service when the Torah is brought out and everyone is singing and holding up their hands in the air reaching to touch the holiness. God's voice came through the retro woofers ( no... [more]
Within the first few minutes of David Cronenberg’s 1999 movie eXistenZ, video game designer Allegra Geller is referred to as both “goddess” and “demoness.” The polarizing reaction to Geller’s games sets the stakes for the ensuing narrative—one in which “realists” fight against gamers, who, according to the realists, “deform” reality. Indeed, in immersive games like eXistenZ, players are never sure if they are themselves or their c... [more]
In today's atmosphere of techno-voyeurism, we're constantly peeking through the keyhole to see how other people live. The artist's studio has always had a certain allure as a site of creative aspiration and the setting for private artistic practice, like the escort's boudoir it ignites our imagination.
But what do artists keep on their most personal work space, their desks—and what does it reveal about their art? Exclusively for our Collector's Catalogue, we invite artists we know from v... [more]
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...

PAUL TIILILÄ lives and works in Pälkäne, Finnland.
“In Paul Tiililä´s art is the poetry crystallizing. He is able to touch the spectator with only a few marks; his language is simply and linearity and it is coming straight from his feelings. Paul Tiililä´s art is clean and optimistic art, art which touches.” (Eraldo Di Vita)

Interpreting the patterns of light that reach our eyes is a very difficult problem, requiring about a third of our brains’ information processing capacity. When performed accurately, this process allows us to perceive many features of every object we see: their colors, shapes, identities, orientations, positions, and the spatial relationships between them. This happens so quickly and flawlessly that we don’t even notice it happen.
In the past week, a set of trippy images revealed on... [more]
First, apologies for the puns to come. It’s difficult to talk about sexuality and eroticism without making a bad pun or two. Sexuality has seemingly always been a site of discomfort in our culture: through it, we are laid naked and bare, both literally and via the fetishes that express the darkest sublimations of gendered relations. The advent of a communication tool and platform for largely consequence-free expression—the internet—has greatly affected the role pornography and se... [more]
International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice.
I’ m sure I... [more]
