Hollywood's Latest Darling: How Carey Mulligan Rose to Fame

May 8, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

Starring as Daisy Buchanan may be throwing Carey Mulligan in the spotlight but the British actress has been deserving of the attention for years, playing one standout role after another. Whether you've been a fan of hers since you first saw her in 2005's Pride & Prejudice (where she played Kitty Bennet to Keira Knightley's Elizabeth Bennet) or since you saw her in 2009's An Education, it doesn't really matter because once The Great Gatsby is released, everyone is going to be claiming love dating years back....

As one of the most revered artists in history, it would be a pretty big deal if a new painting was discovered to have been the work of Vincent Van Gogh. The possibility of just that is the focal point of the Nevada Museum of Art's newest exhibition, A Real Van Gogh? An Unsolved Art World Mystery (which will be on view from April 13 through August 15, 2013).... Read More

Tyler Shields Defies Gravity With New Series Suspense

Apr 5, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Controversial photographer Tyler Shields is known for photographing celebrities in a way that exposes the darkness of Hollywood (from overexposure to depression and addiction), using anything from raw meat to blood to get his point across. He's been around long enough now that his work is no longer new, per se, but it still makes an impact and legions of fans constantly await his newest shots. Wait no longer because Shields is back with Suspense, his newest series which will debut at the Guy Hepner Gallery on April 28 in Los Angeles.... Read More

Vegas Mogul Puts Elbow Through Picasso's Le Reve & Sells it for Record Sum

Apr 3, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Picasso is one of the world's most revered artists so it's not really a surprise that his Le Rêve has been sold to billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen for $155 million, the highest price a US collector has ever paid for a piece of art, making it the priciest Picasso ever sold. What is surprising — at least to me — is that Le Reve (The Dream) was sold for this crazy price after the seller, hotelier Steve Wynn, accidentally put his elbow through it. How does someone accidentally jab his elbow through a Picasso, causing a six-inch tear in the canvas? Guess you'll have to form your own opinion, but I'm going to assume alcohol was involved....

Alright, so we know that the Rococo movement was a century prior to the Titanic's ill-fated voyage but come on, you know that was your first thought when looking at these images too, now wasn't it? While that was probably not the point of Andreas Franke's latest fine art exhibit, the display is certainly one meant to get people talking.... Read More

Stolen Banksy Street Art to be Sold at Miami Auction House

Feb 20, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart  |  1 Comment

Where art and commerce meet is a tricky intersection, especially when putting a price on street art which espouses social and political theory. Banksy, a British artist whose work speaks of these issues, is usually very elusive, but we would like to hear his opinion regarding an upcoming auction of one of his wall murals.... Read More

The Real Guitar Hero: Fulfill Your Dreams with an Eric Clapton Guitar Replica

Feb 20, 2013  |   Contributor: Tina Stewart  |  1 Comment

For those who wish to take part in rock-n-roll history, games like Guitar Hero provide a stage for players to try to match their skills to those of legendary musicians like Elvis, Slash, and Jimi. No matter your score though, you're still playing with a plastic guitar with color-coded buttons, which pales in comparison to playing the real deal. Even if you're not a consummate musician who can work a fret as well as a remote, anyone can appreciate the select few guitars that contributed to and represent rock-n-roll history.... Read More

These dynamics might play a hand in the complexity of the art pieces produced by Slade Project. The artistic team is comprised of a mother and her two sons, bringing their talents together to collaborate on mixed-media imagery that commemorates or tells the “story” of an individual(s), through photos and memorabilia. Although a fine art collection is always prized, creating some personal pieces for a home and for future generations can be more valuable than any Monet.... Read More

Henry Richardson's Artistic Genius: Creating Spheres From Sheets of Glass

Feb 18, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

When Henry Richardson decided to be an artist, he opted out of art school and decided to take a more direct route delving right in. Self-taught, he started as a painter and eventually worked his way up to his current passion, glass sculpture. While many glass art is done by blowing or casting, Richardson instead fuses glass sheets together to create amazing orbs and towers. His method involves cutting arcs of glass that form rings, layering them to eventually form a perfect sphere.... Read More
