A comical spoof of the traditional Ladybird books featuring Peter and Jane is gaining attention on social media. We Go To
Duchamp and his little cabal of antagonistic dada's wanted art to be a purely intellectual tool. Well, plenty of modern art, and certainly contemporary art, asks the audience to seek meaning from ostensibly nonsensical pieces and, for me, this is exciting and very rarely boring.
January is usually blue, but not in the Visual Arts. It is red. It is the beginning of the year and starts with a big bang: Art Fairs, top quality exhibitions, talks, performances... Everybody wants to welcome the New Year in the best possible way.
Why is it that the teapot almost always has to come in one size, and that size is for two. It's a visual hint that either
Born, bred and finely tuned in Cambridge amongst iconic art teachers who believed in their students, including Sanderson, he has become a popular and sought after commissioned sculptor, but of course he doesn't care about this. He cares about what's going on within the mind of his client. Within the intention of the brief with a question of how, oh how, could the idea add light to the land?

Ah, Paris! You're oh so beautiful, so romantic, and also, somewhat expensive. The chic boutique hotels, the mouth-watering steak frites, un vin rouge along the Boulevard Saint-Michel - just staying, eating and drinking in the French capital can be a costly experience before you even add on the 'must-see' sights of the city.
Raqib Shaw is one of the most acclaimed and most collected artists at work today. He is defying the fashionable rigor of the minimalist. He is the complete antithesis, both in his life and even more so in the prolific, meticulous and extravagant art he creates.
Not too long ago, I came across a street artist called Bambi. Bambi, as an artist, fulfils the contradiction of being accessible yet profound, as does she many others. She's anonymous, yet world-known, having sparked the interest of celebrity fans such as Adele, Brad Pitt and Harry Styles.
