David Cata: Skin As Canvas


Artist David Catá incorporates various mediums in his work. For his photography, he employs his own skin to project our memory and our interactions with the people in our lives. Many of his images show physical stitches that resemble the persons that have had an influence on his life. As he explains himself: “Everyone we meet makes us in someway. Their image projects on us, reminding us where by we come from. Their lives turn into a part of ours. Every stitch represents them over my skin, physical pain is not a boundary, it unites us more by thinking of the marks on my hand as an affective act, that my thinking, at one time, my hand has touched their hand”.

Have a look at his work below and view the videos which track his methods.

Hyper-Realistic Fashion Paintings by Anna Halldin-Maule


Swedish born artist Anna Halldin-Maule nourishes our creativity with her hyper-realistic paintings. Her extremely detailed oil based artworks, both embrace and critique today’s fashion and luxury industry. Driven by the issues female identity faces in contemporary society, Anna Halldin-Maule creates paintings portraying nude models adorned by jewellery, make-up and objects of luxury. The series, titled ‘Persona’, thus explores how women use these items of consumerism as a mask in search of their true self.  Inspired by her Swedish background the minimalist paintings have been made with the use of toned-down colours, which create a balanced and harmonious setting significant for Scandinavian design. Anna Halldin-Maule closely collaborates with her husband, Tom Maule, who is a schooled photographer. Together they start Anna’s creative process by composing a photoshoots which later serves as a reference for her paintings.

Riverbed by Olafur Eliasson


Olafur Eliasson, a Berlin based artist, literally brings the outdoors inside by filling the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark with soil and stones to resemble a riverbed, hence the name of the exhibition. Eliasson wants the visitor to experience the contrast of the exhibition with true nature, by letting them get immersed in the authenticity of the installation. The central issue of ‘Riverbed’ is the progress of the visitor through the museum and the coinciding transitions between outside and inside, staged nature and culture – all becoming fluid.
