The iconic New Yorker brand founded in 1851, installed itself in the heart of Zona T in February 2012. Read More
Strangely enough, to me the most beautiful things that ever came from Russian creative debris are those drab yet charming products of Soviet industrial design which have been undeservingly ostracized by the new generation of home-grown engineers. Read More
Squatting buildings in Paris has become a way for young contemporary artists to show their work while making a real political statement against real estate speculation (among other things.)
Anything can be beautiful when it comes to contemporary art. Well, at least when one’s scribbles on a piece of paper get acknowledgment within the academic realms of the visual arts scene. You don’t need to observe subtle nuances of shape and color, no one expects you to be able to paint or sculpt. Rather you should provide an original interpretation of your work and present certain skills to get to the very core of those tangled curatorial circles. Read More
Jonathan Johnson doesn’t want to live in a cheap plastic world. Even more, he condemns this world. So it immediately suggests itself, that Jonathan Johnson became a goldsmith. First he tried his talent as a joiner, carpenter and plasterer, but soon realized where his true profession was. His gallery is currently located in Hamburg, Germany. Read More
Bruce Weber has done more to create the way that masculine beauty is portrayed in the media than any other artist. His ads, most famously the billboards and videos he’s produced for Calvin Klein and Abercrombie and Fitch since the mid 90’s draw their appeal from the ‘boy next door’ fantasy, itself borrowed wholesale from the girl next door pinup of the 60’s that Bunny Yaeger foisted upon suburban America.
Iris has a great affinity to animals. But not in the way where you have a bunch of cats, dogs and rabbits to take care of and give a warm home. No, Iris Schieferstein from Germany has a devotion to skinned animals. Some people have pizza and coke in their fridge, she has dead animals.

It’s part refined color blocked Tronscape, i.e. lots of grids that turn 3D, part chunky fractal like shapes, and loads of strobing things that start off as lines and become new worlds, thing is it’s a lot more solid and refined than that all sounds, and mind-blowingly beautiful.
Acronymn symbolizing all possibilities. That’s Rocky’s kushed out take on the meaning of his Harlem crew’s name. Apart from Rocky himself being way better looking than Ryan Gosling (what is up with RG’s nose?), Venus - another member of the click- is fast becoming a style icon in the rap fashion blog world.
Bogota is characterized by having beautiful women, from all over the country, as well as from different colors and backgrounds. I confess I’ve been sitting for hours and days trying to identify an interest trend on beauty. The difference between being inspired with boundaries, and finding the muse without any type of limitation is enormous, but it finally hit me: I’m gonna write about Loly.
Gaby Amarantos is the biggest representative of the music style known as techno-brega. A blend of electro-pop and cheesy music made in Northern Brazil, techno-brega producers use makeshift studios to record versions of popular Brazilian songs and international music from the eighties, ignoring copyright concerns and distributing it in the streets in homemade CDs.
