Nice piece on Jetset Graffiti detailing images of the latest piece from French artist JR and his ‘Wrinkles in the City’ series, which you can see throughout L.A (FYI, JR won the coveted TED prize for 2011).
Beautiful artworks from Daniel Arsham, across any media (and dimension) he see’s fit.
The controversial artist Kevin Harman is putting on a solo show of new and old artworks at the Old Ambulance Depot in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Known as the man who pinched two hundred doormats and smashed a scaffolding pole through a gallery window before exhibiting the results, Harman may cause controversy, but his artwork has proven to be far more constructive than destructive.
If your in the Edinburgh area, we would like to invite you to the opening which is taking place on Friday 4th March 2011 between 18:30 and 21:30. We are sure to be there.
