Self Portrait

Self Portrait’ is the archetypal blank canvas that engages the spectator, with a large-scale, ephemeral representation of himself. All evidence of the encounter exists only in the moment of interaction between the viewer and the work. Gradually, moment and image fade away, never to be repeated.

Discarded Clothes Sculpture by Guerra De La Paz

“The overabundance of discarded clothes though beautiful in some ways, seems depressingly sad when collectively hanging from a ceiling or arranged like a weeping rainbow.”
- gBlog.

The phrase above makes us think about our daily “mass-produced refuse” by creatively putting together old discarded clothes into stunning, artistic sculpture. Guerra De La Paz, a collaboration between two artists, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz doesn’t see trash, in this sense, but an opportunity for artistic beauty and expression. Via

Ernesto Neto

Incredible installations by this Brazilian artist.


Delightful shop filled with antique writing cabinets adorned with bones and dried flowers, candles beside aged porcelain dolls and taxidermied deer. You’ll be lured in by the faint trickle of 1920′s music, vintage glass, charts of mysterious anatomical regions and dim glare of strange medical devices alongside exotic beetles. Inside the shops’ incensed walls you’ll find a menagerie of…amazing stuff. It’s impossible to list all they offer here, but their online store will give you something of an overview. Via
