But what has become a real discovery for me is the bird’s eye view of the rivers flowing along the black volcanic sand. It is an inexpressible combination of colors, lines, and patterns. This is...

Made By Hand

There are moments when you come across a piece of art, and it speaks to you, a truth you needed to hear just then… This is a film about Joel Bukiewicz, The Knife Maker. I found that I developed this need to make these sort of creative offerings on a daily basis – to basically...

Dalek / James Marshall

busy environments that echo the mechanical repetition of industrial mass-production It’s an ever-expanding, contracting barely breathing universe, contemplating suffocation while simultaneously hovering over the consequences of not exploring further the options that no longer lay waiting in the back of the coat room. ~James Marshall (aka Dalek), painter Explosive with his precision and use of...

SERPENS : Guido Mocafico

What animal has inspired as much dread, as many legends, indeed, as much revulsion and terror as the snake? Demon, divinity, sacred animal protector, ancestor – the nature and importance of this creature’s role has changed throughout history. Among the 2,700 known species, few are dangerous, let alone lethal, to humans, but prejudices run deep....
