Warren Haasnoot is a young architect from Newcastle (AUS). I love his Carrington Wharf Project, I imagine all these tables hanging in an art gallery’s wall attracting envies and curses by loads of so-called-artists. Go on Warren!

Super minimal new Nendo‘s installation <<Installation for the main event “future primitives” at Biennale INTERIEUR 2012, held in Kortrijk, Belgium. A number of artists, designers and architects were asked to design a single 60 square meters space under the theme ‘a room that represents the interior space of the future’.

Angie Mason

Angie is the queen of all the interrupted children. Her characters float between dream and destruction, always with a delicate aftertaste of lost innocence, or better: they seem caught in the very same moment of losing innocence, of reaching despair after happiness, of sharing sadness. With a romantic rock’n’roll touch. Her new solo show will be in NY at Sacred Gallery, opening July 7th, 2012, she sent me some studio pics, a couple more after the cut, I hope you will enjoy them!

Oscar Sanmartin Vargas


Oscar was born in Zaragozza (Spain) in 1972. He reveals a different world with mixed media creations, from illustration to assemblage dioramas; while I was lookin at his images all the sci fi books of the 50s and 60s I read popped up in my mind. They were wild and extremely generous in exploring new worlds; they had so many ideas deep inside their pages.. just like in Oscar‘s art: a mix of metaphysical, steam punk and poor art. Amazing! More after the cut!
