With a brush of her paints, Kim Manning brings to life the most salacious of humanly experiences. Art has always been second nature to Manning, but it wasn’t until the freedoms of University that she was able to get her hands onto a topic few dare to tread. This Sydney-based artist is having her first solo show at the Tate Gallery at the Toxteth Hotel in Glebe from April 25, and will surprise you with the brilliancy of her palate and subject matter.

Ok, the internet may have only been invented so that people can look at pictures of cute kittens doing things without public ridicule. But there is nothing wrong with that, especially when you can combine the gorgeous feline with music. This tumblr is incredible. I have never giggled so much at my computer screen.

Then there are ad campaigns so cool you want to buy the clothes even if it’s a men’s range for a season you won’t experience until next year (thanks Southern Hemisphere!).
