Large ceramic dolls by Mariana Monteagudo

Melissa Kojima Reader Find

By Melissa Kojima in New Art on Wednesday 18 April 2012

A friend told me to look up Mariana Monteagudo’s artwork. She recommended it because I have a tendency to be drawn to cute, yet creepy art. I was blown away by it. Her work consists of large, ceramic art dolls. I may be strange, but I thought they were less creepy and more cute. She’s a Venezuelan artist with a new show called, Humanoid, running at Space 2 in Bogota, Colombia.

The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in New Food and Packaging on Tuesday 6 December 2011

Luckily for all of us here in Buenos Aires, his contemporary yet distinctively regional fare can now be found in private events around the city as well thanks to the super exclusive Oasis Clubhouse.

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Thursday 7 April 2011

Much like Tom Friedman, Colombian-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe uses every day objects and unexpected but readily available materials – pennies, shoelaces, warped records: to create elaborate conceptual sculptures.

I wonder if this would work with real bullets.
