The artist’s “Hipstory Artist Series” is a continuation of Amit Shimoni original Hipstory project, which began with images of political figures. Amit has now expanded his portfolio to include new paintings of art stars, such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo, and Andy Warhol.
This innovative art project by Leni Dothan was prompted by the desire to raise a stronger awareness towards the invisible enemy that is air pollution. Together with the Chemistry department of UCL, Leni created these photographs on 200 Portland stones using London’s air pollution

This project is a perfect conceptual and chemical symbiosis between science and art, aiming for awareness and a response to air pollution through public art in between London and Portland Isle. During the b-side biennale, the artist will transform the Verne High Angle Battery into a rehab centre for air polluted sculptures made in London.
These sculptures will be the outcome of an ongoing research based collaboration with Dr. Raul Quesada-Cabrera, expert in photochemistry at UCL, prof. Andrea Sella and Sana Ali. Together, they developed a pollution-reactive material in UCL’s Chemistry lab.
Leni Dothan will bring these polluted sculptures to Portland for them to be cleaned while on display at the Verne High Angle Battery for nine days. The audience will witness the colour changes on the sculptures as the artworks react to a healthier context. The sculptures will become a powerful tool for public awareness towards the growing issue that is air pollution, especially in cities.

"Very Still Life" is a series of clay sculpture created by Tel-Aviv artist Roni Landa depicting veggies in a totally "carnivorean" way
Photographer Nir Arieli captures what happens dancers let go of the precision, the control, the stamina — and simply be. The series is titled “Flocks,” which, in the artist’s native language of Hebrew, means both “company,” as in dance company, and “flock,” as in a flock of animals. In the images, Arieli explores the relationship between a team of similarly passionate and talented individuals and a herd designated by nature and circumstance.
"Thousands of cartoon faces undulate like waves on the ocean, smiling, laughing, and morphing in a never-ending loop. It's a friendly face, Finn the Human from beloved animated show Adventure Time—but wait, looking closer it appears that it's also Fiona the human, a gender-swapped version of Finn from the show's in-house fan fiction. Keep looking and the brain starts swimming. Stare too long and the stomach churns, even as the eyes are mesmerized. Welcome to the world Looopism, a.k.a. Israeli artist Ori Toor." via TCP

Danit Peleg: "In September 2014 I started working on my graduate collection for my Fashion Design degree at Shenkar. This year, I decided to work with 3D printing, which I barely knew anything about. I wanted to check if it'd be possible to create an entire garment using technology accessible to anyone. So I embarked on my 3D printing journey, without really knowing what the end result would be."
