Konstantin Kofta released a new collection of wearable art mixing 20s century avant-guard practice with modern methods of post-human relationships
“Relationship of man and space, the synthesis of technical and creative, making the form is absolute by bringing to geometrical perfection. Forms cleared from any symbolism and metaphoricity, repeatability, monochrome, neutral surfaces, industrial materials and methods of manufacture. ABC seeks to convey the simplified essence and form of objects, cutting offsecondary images and shells.The symbolism prevails based on three main figures also colors, dots and lines”
“I believe in general in death, but in the death of Dali, absolutely not.” Salvador Dalí
Just in time of his 115 Anniversary, St.Petersburg (Florida, US) museum of Salvador Dalí brought him back alive using AI technologies
“The exhibition, called Dalí Lives, was made in collaboration with the ad agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners (GS&P), which made a life-size re-creation of Dalí using the machine learning-powered video editing technique. Using archival footage from interviews, GS&P pulled over 6,000 frames and used 1,000 hours of machine learning to train the AI algorithm on Dalí’s face. His facial expressions were then imposed over an actor with Dalí’s body proportions, and quotes from his interviews and letters were synced with a voice actor who could mimic his unique accent, a mix of French, Spanish, and English.”
“With 45 minutes of newly created footage and thousands of combinations, each visitor gets a different experience. There are scenes that open with him reading the newspaper, with an overlay of the current front page of The New York Times; if it’s raining, he’ll comment on the weather”
Gastón Ugalde, born 1944 in La Paz, Bolivia (Venice Biennale 2009, 2001) is considered a visual arts leader in the region. His work is deeply rooted in Bolivian traditions and filled with socio-political references.
The work of fine artist Samuel de Mare is in a perpetual state of flux. His paintings constantly change focus, taking different paths through a scene to try to capture his intention. Following the frustrations and decisions within his process becomes part of the joy.
“Aakash Nihalani is known for his illusionist interventions that push the boundaries between two and three dimensions. Though he started off using using tape to form ephemeral installations, in the last few years Nihalani has moved into more permanent territory, working with wood and metal to form free-standing and wall-mounted sculptures.”
“South Korean artist Kwang Young Chun wraps tiny geometric packages in paper and combines them into massive wall-mounted and freestanding assemblages. Each composition is composed of thousands of individual mulberry paper parcels, carefully toned with tea and pigment and including the abstracted characters that allude to the paper’s origins as old documents. The works, which Chun refers to as ‘agreggations’, feature gradations in color and smooth craters within their highly textured surfaces.”
Hyper-realistic artist, CJ Hendry, is bringing her 6th solo exhibition: RORSCHACH to Brooklyn through April 21. Known for her iconic black and white pen drawings of pop culture objects, is furthering her exploration of color and abstract forms.

The bounce house has taken over a year to plan, cut and sew to fit the Dumbo space perfectly. With 6 blowers standing 14-foot-high, the bounce house can accommodate up to 100 people at a time.
RORSCHACH : 10th – 21st April

“Slow Lens is the newest piece from French artist Vincent Leroy, who often explores optics and light in his large-scale installation work. The piece is suspended from above, and a network of curved, translucent lenses distorts the viewer’s perspective. Displayed en plein air, the connected lenses slowly rotate and ofter multiplied visions of the surrounding environment. Leroy installed and documented Slow Lens in various locations around Paris, including in highway lanes that were vacant due to pollution-induced city traffic restrictions.” via @Colossal
“COMPANION, a 121-foot-long inflatable sculpture by street artist @KAWS, launched today at Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. The reclined, monochrome figure is the largest to date for the American artist, with recent previous iterations of the project installed at the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan, and on Seokchon Lake in Seoul, South Korea. The figure was purposefully designed to be in a peaceful repose, its crossed-out eyes gazing at the sky above.”
The work was launched by Hong Kong-based creative studio AllRightsReserved for the annual Hong Kong Arts Month, and will continue to occupy the harbor until March 31, 2019
Elodie Milan is a french photographer very inspired by paintings from The Renaissance.
She sacralizes her friends and empowered them with lights from Caravage and sometimes thanks to their clothes, an other big theme in her work
Moscow based artist and illustrator Andrey Surnov creates quintessential digital canvases depicting a mellow beauty of Russian suburb
Los Angeles based actor and artist Joseph Lee has spent years studying faces and the feelings that they emote. So it's absolutely impressive that his series of abstract portraits, composed of just a few thick, segmented brush strokes, can convey so much emotion and expression. And all without hardly a single detail of the face exposed! I could study these portraits for hours, while admiring the beauty of each stroke and his brilliant use of colors.
American artist Paolo del Toro painstakingly creates huge felt heads that appear to us as a mix of ritual and tribal masks from Central and South America and friendly characters from Japanese animations of Hayao Miyazaki.
