David Černý gives the Czech President the finger in 30-foot sculpture

What can only be described as “ballsy,” Czech artist David Černý has outdone himself again by erecting a giant purple ‘f**k you’ right in the middle of Prague’s Vltava River, across from the Prague Castle where Czech president Milos Zeman lives. The 45-year-old sculptor has made a name for himself throughout the globe for his politically motivated pieces (eg: vandalizing a tank statue at the Soviet war memorial by painting it pink!), and this time Černý’s point is just as clear.

By Mareike Muller in New Art on Tuesday 22 October 2013

The circle of life for billions of trees is usually to grow, to be cut down, to end up as a book or newspaper.

This cool sculpture is the result of a collaboration between Pharrell Williams and Daniel Arsham.

Marcin Schleifer Contributor

By Marcin Schleifer in New Art on Monday 16 September 2013

Type writer part assemblages by Jeremy Mayer

Marcin Schleifer Contributor

By Marcin Schleifer in New Art on Friday 13 September 2013
