Diana Al-hadid’s “The Fates” at Secession in Vienna

Diana Al-hadid is an artist who’s work I first saw at the Marienne Boesky Gallery in New York. Her sculpture “Trace of a Fictional Third”(2011) absolutely took my breath away.

Henrique Oliveira’s “Transarquitetônica” – Repurposed Wood Tunnels

I’ve had this sculpture/installation by Henrique Olivera in my inspiration folder for a while now. This massive winding sculpture is positively beautiful. It’s quite incredible how he can make wood seem so fluid. Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira (previously) recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da […]

Artist Tran Nguyen

My friend Cody introduced me to Tran Nguyen after seeing her work at Dragon Con and bringing me back an original artist print. This one to be exact: I just loved the fantasy and geometry in it, and ever since, I’ve been keeping an eye on her work. She had a recent exhibition at Thinkspace […]

Artist Fuco Ueda

Another artist exhibiting at Thinkspace Gallery has caught my eye. Japanese artist Fuco Ueda. In Thinkspace’s words: Ueda is renowned for her surreal narrative paintings of slight girls surrounded by all manner of lush hyper-colored flora and fauna. I just love it. Check out the exhibition Kioku No Hana (Flower of Memory) if you’re in […]
