ANOTHER NEW COLLECTION IS UP ”TIME AND TIME AGAIN” by @deadlineart collective. This is a tale where many different Budapest faces tell their stories. This is fitting, since Budapest is a town that loves stories and where history is present at every street corner and every apartment. And where the past loops into the future and where the present is always a precarious state. See they lovely humor the create with their art :-) We 😍 it!

VÄLKOMMEN PÅ VINTERVERNISSAGE Lördagen 8 december. Kl 15.00 Under senare år har Susanne Walström återvänt till Island många gånger för att dokumentera den poetiska interaktionen mellan hästar och natur. I "Black Lava Fairy Tale" upphör tiden och sagan börjar. En saga där alla människor har stigit av hästryggen och hästarna lever på egen hand. Arktiska vindar, lava som brinner under hovarna och nya okända faror - är gudarna fortfarande deras beskyddare? Susanne är på plats och berättar om arbetet kring projektet och signerar sin nya bok. Välkomna till en skön eftermiddag i galleriet.
⌜ Checkmate ⌟ by @jonasanhede - UOW are about to start collaborating with a few of what we call ”carefully selected instagram photographers”. Carefully curated collections produced in small prints, 24X24cm (75 Euro). Signed in open editions. We gonna make these pictures come alive on paper. First out is Jonas. A local friend that took his photography to a new level when his work found friends - a lot of them - on instagram. His work is rare, well composed and have thoughtful names so we want these pictures become something more than a picture on social media. This first collection ”Small Thoughts” will be in store soon. #uponwallshjo #iceland #travelphotography #leica #olympus #smallart #cliffs #ocean #darkwater

⌜ Spitzkoppe⌟ by @susannwalstrom - from the collection DESERTS. A big, dramatic bump in the middle of nowhere.

Still a favorite.

This artwork is the tribute to the fact that we now have 600 followers. WHOOOOAOOOW. Not much, we know but still 600 followers by organic growth and people who likes what we do. And 600 for which we are incredibly grateful. If you grow fast, something breaks down an old mentor told us! Art takes time so we grow slowly and safely. Thanks no 600 @marcuscederberg. Let’s talk about the artwork: . ⌜ Not your decision anymore ⌟ by @deadlineartcollective from the collection OFF THE GRID. DAC have journeyed to the Faroe Islands.
