Their new art exhibit, A ópera da lua (“The Moon Opera”), features paintings, sculptures and a video installation where works are connected by doors and windows. The artists are known for incorporating storytelling and fantasy into their exhibits, where surreal elements blend together in a multicolored collage as if seen through a kaleidoscope.
Samantha Wall Drawings Portaits Multiracial of Womens
Portland-based Korean artist Samantha Wall draws perceptive representations of women who exhibit a range of emotions and attitude. Her experience with ‘multi-raciality’ between living in Korea and now the United States inspired her latest drawings, “Indivisible” but it has roots in her previous works. Her simple yet profound drawings are the result of her own experiences and feelings. Emotional desire creates moments of hyper awareness, a characteristic specific to human nature. Wall believes that how we position ourselves in the world directly relates to our bond with others.

((NOVOS MENE)) O CAMINHONEIRO QUE SE COMPADECE E DÁ DICAS PARA HOMENS TÍMIDOS
Não se fazem saudosismos como antigamente
Avenida Consolação, em frente ao metrô Paulista, São Paulo, SP.
Street artist LUDO is bouncing about Asia at the moment and recently emailed over some images of his works in the streets of Bangkok… such a photogentic city.
Fun fact: Bangkok currently holds the Guinness record for having the longest name of a place. Apparently “Bangkok” is just the short version because the city’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”
Nastya Kaletkina and Her Moody Black and Whites
Any analogue enthusiast worth his salt will know what features an analogue photo needs to have to stand out in a sea of digital shots. And they might as well just stop looking for pixels in photographer Nastya Kaletkina’s work.
