‘ London-based architecture firm ACME was recently awarded third prize in a competition to design a United Nations memorial. Initiated by the city of Chungju in South Korea, the selected memorial will rest in the city’s UN Peace Park. ACME’s proposal is comprised of a 1,500 seating assembly, two conference halls, a theater and exhibition spaces. An open staircase winds up the exterior of the building and leads all the way up to the roof, where a public garden and green roof awaits. ‘ Link.

Boo Ritson

Boo Ritson paints people, but not on canvas or on board – she literally coats people with paint. Presented as photographs, Ritson’s portraits are a double masquerade: her subjects coated in sticky disguise, and the documentary image a surrogate representation of the tangible painterly, sculptural, and performative qualities of work. By using photography Ritson capitalises on the associations of snapshot memory and filmic narrative, with each of her characters playing out readily recognisable stereotypes. ”

T.V. Santhosh

‘ Employing the themes of war and global terrorism, South Indian artist T.V. Santhosh paints in lurid greens and shocking orange, recreating the effect of a colour photographic negative. The artist charges his large canvases with figures in contoured and compromising positions. Like many of his politically motivated contemporaries, Santhosh lifts pivotal episodes from recent history and renegotiates their appearance with a shock-bulb of violent energy that eclipses the work. Santhosh’s paintings of impending doom, a world at the brink of an atomic end, are intentionally more apocalyptic than cathartic. Tracing an Ancient Error is an illuminated work of what appears to be a bearded man lain out, revealing his chest, holding onto something resembling a thread. An image from recent news events, Santhosh captures this scene and reinvents its value as a piece of anonymous and charged history. ‘

Madrid-based illustrator Gabriel Moreno honed his skills in the fine arts university of Sevilla. He’s one of my favorites so far. His less is more approach fits his whole MO very well. He’s worked all around from design studios to ad agencies since graduating back in 98.

Dirk Erik Schulz is an illustrator based in Germany. Stumbled upon this artist by accident and being a gamer myself, I liked how he based his twisted characters from the video game world. There’s a ton more over at his deviantart gallery when you’re done here.
