Los Angeles County Museum of Art The Bizarre, Flexible Paper Sculptures of Li Hongbo What at first look like delicate works of carved porcelain are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms by Beijing artist Li Hongbo. A book editor and designer, the artist became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures.

Royal Academy of Arts Collections - Home Art Student Owl Art Student Owl is a meme that spoofs the stereotypical art student in popular culture. Chain smoking and devoted to everything having to do with art to the point that anything else becomes unimportant, the art student scrapes by on student loans, barely having enough money to eat and looking down their noses at anyone who lives in the “real world” and doesn’t suffer for something greater than themselves – their art. They also tend to see anything and everything as either art or something that should be used as art. The meme itself contains a photograph of a rather bored looking owl (who knew owls could look bored?), with a cigarette dangling out of its beak, appearing to be just a moment away from pontificating on some deep art-related subject. The text around the meme art typically has something to do with art, art school, artists, or anything else art-related.

Montereau - Fault - Yonne Le Musée municipal de la Faïence de Montereau a été ouvert au public en 1985, dans les locaux de l'ancienne poste, située non loin du confluent de l'Yonne et de la Seine et de la Collégiale. Il expose en permanence une collection de 400 pièces couvrant les deux siècles de production de la faïence de Montereau, ainsi qu'une salle dédiée àla bataille de Montereau, dernière victoire de Napoléon. La faïence de Montereau connut son heure de gloire dans la deuxième moitié du XIXème siècle, notamment après la fusion avec la manufacture de Creil, et avec le développement des décors imprimés. C'est la variété des styles et la diversité des sujets des décors qui font de la visite du Musée une expérience unique : voir tous ces décors est comme feuilleter une grande « bande dessinée » qui raconte le XIXème siècle et le début du XXème, son histoire, ses centres d'intérêts, ses scènes de la vie quotidienne. Napoléon à Montereau :
