As much as I enjoy finding street art gems while strolling along the streets, I cannot stand tags and graffiti on unwanted surfaces. Here's one that I saw on my street the other day. Curses to the derelict that did that. However, here's an act of 'vandalism' that I definitely approve of. Moscow-based Russian illustrator Nikita Golubev sees a canvas where others just see dirt. He uses . . .
Australia's often forgotten, being so far away from everything else. However, I've seen a pretty decent portion of art, culture and design news flowing out from our borders over the past few years. Just came across this 15-year-old girl who did an amazing rendition of David Bowie's song 'Space Oddity' on The Voice. In other news – check out this incredible Australian artist Joshua Smith, . . .
