Strange Gods It’s been quiet around here this week, but here’s a shot of what I’ve been up to. Hopefully this giant monstrosity will be finished within the next few days, and I can set myself upon the next.

Mérelle was granted a residence at the prestigious Casa Vélasquez in Madrid and in 2010 he was the first winner of the highly lauded Canson Prize.

Yann Tambellini, Creative Director at Kylotonn : Jenny Saville JENNY SAVILLE The Mothers, 2011 Oil on canvas 106 5/16 x 86 5/8 inches (270 x 220 cm) Jenny Saville was born in Cambridge, England in 1970. In 1990, midway through her BA course at the Glasgow School of Art, Jenny Saville exhibited in Contemporary '90 at the Royal College of Art. In 1992 she completed her degree as well as showing in Edinburgh and in Critics Choice at the Cooling Gallery, London. Following the success of her show at the Saatchi Gallery in 1994, which generated a great deal of publicity for her work (the images were ubiquitous that year), Saville went on to take part in the exhibition American Passion, which toured from the McLellan Gallery, Glasgow, to the Royal College of Art and the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut. By 1994 many people were familiar with Saville's massive paintings, such as Plan, in which a naked woman is seen from below, her body filling the canvas through a combination of physical bulk and extreme foreshortening.

Becoming a student at Harvard – it’s not a bad way to kick off 2017. 15 influences that stick with you, FOREVER. - Yuko Shimizu I don’t love getting asked about my artistic influences and inspirations. I had stopped answering the question all together some years ago. The biggest reasoning behind it was because I have lived long enough to the point things that have influenced me at some point in my life often have no relevance to who I am now, though, I may still see those early influences in my work. If I name all the influences, past and present, then my list would probably be as thick as a dictionary. However last week, comic artist and friend James Hodgkins posted something on Facebook that really got me.
Gobz___Ailis I went in Hokkaido in Japan three weeks ago, I loooooooooooved it, it such a wonderful place! It’s wilder than in tokyo, and people are generally more open . Food is amazing , especially seafood (they eat everything, from seaweed to urchins, sea-spiders, crabs, jellyfishes, scallops, shrimps…it is quite strange , because we are not used to eat something that fresh ). There is a lot of natural Onsens (hot water coming directly from the ground) were you can rest after snowshoeing all the day (It’s so cold there that we had snow in april!) I didn’t had the time to go on the natural parks of the eastern hokkaido like the Akan National Park, but next time for sure!
