A good way to arrange your home wall art is to create a gallery wall. If you have a lot of different frames and pieces, this method is for you. You can start with the basic piece, secure it to the wall, and then place the other frames around it as you like in a chaotic manner. But if you are not so confident decorator, then I suggest a simple way that will not allow you to make a mistake and damage your wall.

Perhaps you have thought to choose art for your home. Maybe it is quite intimidating and even impossible, like climbing a steep mountain in the beginning. You are not alone. According to the poll, conducted by UGallery, nearly 70 percent of people never bought a artwork for their homes and almost 50 percent citing cost as the main barrier to purchase.

This week’s Web Artist of the Week is not an artist, but a gallerist and curator, as we zoom out to feature the arts professionals working to expand the spaces and visibility of new media and digital art.
Julia Greenway is part of a slowly growing global movement of people dedicating physical galleries to new media art. Shows featuring new media are now fairly commonplace but gallerists deciding to focus on it exclusively are still relatively rare. Greenway’s Seattle gallery Inters... [more]

Mputu’s work combines abstract conceptualism, experimental video, performance, poetry, found digital ephemera, selfies, m... [more]
Istanbul-based Haydi Roket is part of a rising wave of new media artists turning their hands to the curation of online digital art shows. He launched his latest show Virtual Dream earlier this week. Virtual Dream features 30 artists (full disclosure: I am one of them) exploring the tensions and inconsistencies between our real and our increasingly dominant digital lives.

New York, September 2016: This past Thursday, I arrived at Petzel Gallery amidst a flurry of installation activity, scissor lifts backing furtively out of the installed exhibition spaces, and the last of the vinyl lettering still going up on the walls and windows. Simon Denny, the New Zealand-born, Berlin-based artist was speaking fervently to Friedrich Petzel and a few others about his work, visibly excited and engaged about his latest exhibition, Blockchain Future States, due to open that evening.

Xaviera López is a Chilean animator who was an early adopter of the short video app Vine. Alongside a few likeminded souls she helped reveal the creative potential of the deceptively limited platform. The challenge of packing ideas, depth, and emotion into a maximum of six seconds has lead to a new visual language that has spread across all motion-based mediums.
López creates hallucinatory, visual poems that expertly utilize traditional drawing and animation techniques in a uniquely modern way. Her a... [more]

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A self-conscious avatar, pair of floating lips, and President Obama walk into an art show…
What seems like the beginning to a potentially funny joke is actually half of the nearly mirthless exhibition Suspended Animation at the Hirshhorn Museum. Eschewing humor as a staple of animation and postmodern critical tool, the show soberly promises to introduce the audience to six contemporary artists using computer animation to “challenge c...
