BONET is a tribute made by "The 21 Night" studio (Santiago Restrepo Arias) to the Catalan architect Antonio Bonet. Author of a vast work, which tweaks with his genius the geography of Spain and Latin America, which remains a great unknown. Six fragments that project the kaleidoscope of Catalan rationalism, gather and modernise the legacy of architect. It is also a recovery of the dialogue between architecture and light. Between stone and soul. A colourful tribute to the splendour of his work

Matthew Stone is an artist and shaman. These two interconnected roles are defined by his activities as painter, photographer, sculptor, performance artist, writer, Optimist and cultural provocateur.
Stone’s most recent body of work demonstrates an innate enthusiasm for the development of painting within the framework of art history. The new works, use 3d modelling software and paint to break with the history of painting on a flat surface, lifting the strokes into a virtual and free space. The addition of shadows and foreshortening creates an illusionistic - trompe l’oeil sense of depth and perspective within the canvases. He organises and examines complex statements in regard to the relationship between painting, photography & computer generated imagery disrupting the holy status of painting as the ‘cosmic flesh’ of art history whilst simultaneously pushing the visceral experience of paint forward. The series offers a new technical approach to traditional painting, showing diverse bodies at play and in conflict.

Mikhail Batrak is a Ukrainian artist whose work examines the relationship between perception, Surrealism and empiricism. His creative process involves taking photographs with a digital camera and manipulating the results using computer software, combining disparate elements to create unexpected hybrid images. Drawing on techniques such as photomontage, digital drawing and collage, he updates the tropes of Surrealism for the digital age, utilising the visual language and style of the movement to pursue his own vision.
Lukas Bruhn is a 24 year old art director from Germany. His focus is in advertising, but he has created “Lorem de Loop” as a way to challenge himself with new design concepts by experimenting with different softwares, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Cinema 4D.
As an art director in advertising, Bruhn’s job is focused on strategic concepting, which often leaves him with little time for developing the actual craft related to the industry. So in early spring 2017, Lukas decided to continue honing his skills with this artistic venture, where he would create a poster every day for one year.
“‘Lorem de Loop’ helps me to expand my horizon in design. It keeps my mind fresh at working with intricate programs, while giving me the opportunity to try out new software.”
The 24 year old art director uses Instagram to publish his work. “This gives me a lot of pressure to actually complete a poster each day!” says Lukas Bruhn.
Next week, he wants to give away posters to three lucky followers. So follow him, cross your fingers and stay tuned!
Camille Walala (previously) has transformed Greenwich Peninsula’s Now Gallery into a colour labyrinth of wonder. Walala X Play opened through 24 September and her zigzag paths, winding walls of different heights, hanging shapes, and mirrored panels are all decorated with Camille’s signature geometric patterns and brash colours.
The installation is also a puzzle, taking the form of a 3D “spot the difference” in which visitors are encouraged to seek out anomalies in the pattern, with new differences being introduced once a month during the installation’s run until September.
The print designer and artist was selected as Now Gallery’s 2017 Design Collaborator and the piece forms part of the gallery’s summer programme.

Yekaterinburg based street art team Stenograffia ain't happy with abandoned Soviet cars left by their owners all around the city. Having no regrets but spray cans and spare hands they decided to "cut off" old clutters from the streets in the way every designer will approve.

For her US solo exhibition debut, artist Lucy Sparrow opened a pop-up convenient store at the Standard, High Line Hotel. “Handmade in Manhattan: 8 Till Late” is a ‘fauxdega’ that features 9,000 handmade felt products that are all available for sale.
Sparrow transformed the 1,200 sq ft space into an exact convenient store replica with food, books, drinks and household products. The exhibition was intended to run from June 5 – June 30, but due to overwhelming demand—all of the products were sold, shelves were emptied and the store closed 9 days early on June 21. Sparrow even closed the store for 3 days midway through the show’s run to restock the shelves but was still unable to meet customer demand.
"Malaysian model and artist Sheena Liam first learned to embroider as a child. But two years ago, while in a foreign city for a shoot, the 26-year-old picked it up again. In the place of flower and leaves, Sheena stitched modern girls with black hair that spilled out of the frame. Nowadays Sheena continues to create her imaginative embroidery, which ranges from a girl fiddling with a loose topknot to a character snipping her own bangs."
