Portrait of Zhang Yimou made of socks by Red Hong

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Art on Tuesday 17 April 2012

Oh my god, Red Hong has done it again! This time, the immensely creative girl has come up with a portrait that is entirely created from socks. It looks a bit like she wanted to make sure that she never has to look for the other missing sock any more in her life. I like that idea as my socks seem to have a life of their own. I think I’ll be inspired from her example.

Anatomical cross-section paper illustrations by Lisa Nilsson

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Art on Wednesday 11 April 2012

Lisa Nilsson is an artist from Massachusetts who seems to have an obsession with anatomy charts. At least, that’s what it looks like judging from her recent tissue series. The artwork is made of Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books. They are constructed by a technique of rolling and shaping narrow strips of paper, called quilling or paper filigree. Quilling was first practiced by Renaissance nuns and monks and later overtaken by 18th century ladies to spend their time creatively. Lisa Nilsson says: ‘I find quilling exquisitely satisfying for rendering the densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section.’

London in Puddles: photography by Gavin Hammond

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Photography on Tuesday 10 April 2012

London is one of my favorite cities in the world, albeit that it rains a lot there. Or should I say, ‘used to rain a lot?’ Recent news has connected ongoing climate change in England to a drastic decline of rain, which may have a serious long term impact on the capital’s groundwater supply. Gavin Hammond, who’s unique and gloomy lomo photography we have featured before, has made it his mission to give the ‘rainy London as it used to be’ a moment in the sun. He has come up with a fantastic set of photos that shows many of the famous London spots in the reflection of puddles. It’s not only a great idea, the execution is fantastic, too.

Hong Kong in the Rain: photos by Christophe Jacrot

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Photography on Friday 23 March 2012

Christophe Jacrot goes for motif hunting when most of us prefer to stay indoors. His Hong Kong in the Rain series features rain-soaked streets, ripples in puddles, and water drops on windows. All of it reminds me of my favourite Ridley Scott movie, Bladerunner.

By Nini Baseema in New Music on Tuesday 13 March 2012

Ben Mason is a singer/songwriter from Melbourne that I discovered around six years ago on MySpace. Back then, he had set up a little music page where he had uploaded three of the most amazing tunes I had listened to in a while and I was sure that someone with ears in his head and […]

Dark and eerie photography by Yell Saccani

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Photography on Sunday 11 March 2012

Yell Saccani is a photographer from Israel with a stunning portfolio that focuses on the dark side of humans. Many of Saccani’s photos remind me of Edward Munch, in particular her series where she features people that scream. Capturing her motifs mostly in movement, she has a way of creating an atmosphere of despair that I find quite haunting.

The WTF image of today

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Illustration on Tuesday 6 March 2012

If there is such a thing as a collective unconscious world, then the octopus is spooking around in there for quite a while now. The amount of weird squid photos and drawings I have seen in the past twelve months surely is amazing.

Beautiful portrait art created entirely from coffee stains

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Art on Saturday 3 March 2012

Some people paint with acryllic paint, others use oil, and then there are people that simply take what’s left of their day to day beverage and create beautiful art with it. At least, that’s what Red Hong did. She claims that her project took about twelve hours to finish. I wonder how many cups of coffee she had in the process?

1929 silent documentary film by director Dziga Vertov

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Film on Tuesday 28 February 2012

Man with a Movie Camera is an experimental 1929 silent documentary film that I find quite inspiring. It was created by Russian director Dziga Vertov. It features scenes of urban life in Odessa and other Soviet cities. What’s not typical for a silent movie of that time is that it contains neither story, nor specific […]

The seven deadly sins by Christian Montenegro

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Illustration on Thursday 16 February 2012

The ‘seven deadly sins’ is a classical topic for an artist, it seems. As a fan of the Renaissance, I tend to prefer the traditional interpretation. However, Christian Montenegro, an illustrator from Buenos Aires, has come up with an interesting modernist version.

Envelope Drawings by Mark Powell

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Illustration on Friday 10 February 2012

Mark Powell from London uses a standard big biro pen to draw amazing portraits of elderly people on the backs of old envelopes. His works are as evocative as his canvas is unusual. Regardless, the results of his creative efforts are amazing.
