This is amazingly wonderful and bizarre jewelry by the multi-talented British artist, Miles Glyn, whom I met years ago in London while we were both still working in film. The pieces are only available online at the moment, so get on it and start wearing some unique fresh art around your neck.
On first sight, the paintings of British artist Katie Sims seem to be very dynamic and in movement. On second sight, you can spot abstract landscapes and rural environments.

British graffiti artist mobstr. recently had an amusing back-and-forth with the Newcastle City Council, which painted over his stenciled statements directed at them.
The dirt and ephemera Paul Hazelton uses in his work suggests the impermanence of all things. The British artist assembles household dust into ghostly figures as if to reassemble to sloughed-off particles of people and things back into their original forms.
