Artwork pick of the week: How does my hair look darling?

Happy Monday to you! Today we have something quite sweet in store for you: A muffin in love with an ice cone. “How does my hair look darling?“, the print made by Tatak Waskitho is called.

Of course, muffins and ice cones are concerned about their appearance as well – especially if they’re in love, I guess. Imaging them being together as a couple, mixing into a fluffy ice-muffin-thingy. Yummy! The print is available as art print, poster, GalleryPrint and canvas print on ARTFLAKES.

We have read…

That’s a lot of money: Hans-Peter Feldmann, a German artist, has pinned $100.000 – he just took $1 notes – to the walls of the Guggenheim Museum New York. This is the money he received when he was given the Hugo Boss prize. When he told the museum that he would like to use this money as the artwork itself, they were surprised at first. But then Feldmann has become famous for his collecting and re-presenting, we read over at Sweet Station.

Another weird but fascinating exhibition was mentioned by theartblog: Carl Marin is presenting her sculptures made out of toys and taxidermy at the FLUXspace in Philadelphia, USA. People in love cuddly animals should maybe forego the the show, though.

“Fly me to the moon…” – when sitting on this cosy “Balloon bench” you might feel like floating off into the sky the next minute. We stumbled upon this wonderful creation at Sweet Station as well.

Interview with Anthony Zinonos

Anthony is “addicted to collecting paper and loves coffee and rollershoes”, it is said in the portfolio of Anthony Zinonos – whom we have invited today.

Within his collages made out of – of course! – paper and old photographs or newspaper cuttings you will most definitely find an ironic sense.

Where does he draw his inspiration from? And does he like chocolate?

Interview with Heiko Müller

Today our guest is Heiko Müller, artist and illustrator from Hamburg, Germany. Within his drawings and paintings there often is a fairy tale like and dreamy atmosphere – what – which is not surprising, if you’re a living right next to a big forest.

In our interview he told us that he finds his inspiration – among other things – by staring at a cleaning rag and which difficult paths led him to becoming an artist.
