Marco Tirelli‘s impressive but tiny architectural sculptures.

elements of desire

In Venice I spotted my favourite blue combined with super brand icons that create a new time frame of life. Elements of Desire by Joseph Klibansky at Bonnet/Van der Sluis Gallery, Campo Santo Stefano.

l’art brut

Japanese artist Shinichi Sawada, who is autistic, creates these magical, monstrous clay creatures. He obsessively twists clay into spikes and places these on the main body structure. Per creature he uses hundreds of prickly thorns.

have you seen me before?

Polar bear made out of polyurethane foam and feathers by Italian artist, living in Alaska, Paola Pivi. I saw this specimen in 2011 at the MACRO Testaccio in Rome. Now, there are more bears, 8 funky coloured ones, near true to size in an istalllation called ‘Ok, you are better than me, so what?’ at Galerie Perrotin in New York.
