I want to tell a story, visualize a feeling, or capture a certain atmosphere that can move the viewer. Sometimes the process is as important as the picture itself. The painting Mistranslation is based on […]

Mareike Muller Contributor

By Mareike Muller in New Art on Thursday 16 May 2013

Koonings assertion that ‘successful paintings have no holidays’ made the English painter Nigel Cooke think and return to his studio. Digesting this information, the outcome was a series of paintings called No Holidays showing hapless people in their failed leisure time.

Paintings you can actually sit in

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Design on Wednesday 1 May 2013

How impossibly cool are these chairs that YOY design duo Naoki Ono and Yuuki Yamamoto presented recently at this year’s Milano Salone? They’re practically off the coolness meter. Dubbed the Canvas series, these are classy screen-printed canvas artwork of chairs that can be propped against a wall and then sat on. Simply, wow.

Stuart McBratney Contributor

By Stuart McBratney in New Art on Monday 22 April 2013

Dreamy and playful, with a touch of melancholy Jo Dyer’s work would feel equally at home in a children’s book or a West End gallery. Like a child lost in a shopping mall, the wide eyes and kaleidoscopic palette paint a fragile beauty. You’ll see her work in fashion magazines and on cd covers, and […]

Paintings by David Bowie as featured in fan magazine, Panic In Detroit

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Tuesday 9 April 2013

David Bowie was king of dodging stupid questions and traps during interviews. I’ve always admired his insane media skills. When asked if he thought his music was any good, he’d frequently point out that he was actually a painter, not a musician. And guess what? He was telling the truth. Here are a few of his […]
