Fly Art, a Tumblr account created by students Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano has been perfectly mixing popular rap lyrics and Renaissance paintings since December 2013 and we only can hope that they never stop.

#Spotlight Valerie hegartys alternative Histories

Truly breathtaking. NYC-based artist Valerie Hegarty’s artwork often poses as artifacts of art history gone awry. Ravaged paintings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty’s work, who we became familiar with when the work was exhibited on the High Line and then in Marlborough Gallery in NYC in 2012.

Working with fragile materials such as foamcore, paper, paint and glue, she exploits a scrupulous mimicry of objects only to demolish them by devices often associated with their historical significance – tumblr_n1vjk805iw1qa4iv8o5_500

The New Yorker called her work a look into “waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state.” Perhaps of all culture in general?

Pure FIRE! When it comes to fashion, everything Solange touches turns to Technicolor goodness, and in a world of black and black, a punch of tasteful brightness is always appreciated.

The new campaign, shot by her boyfriend and talented director Alan Ferguson, features girls with wild natural hair, dressed in spring time colors, while also allowing the sneakers to make a bold statement.

Alyssa Monks is one of the formost emerging contemporary artists in America today. Her paintings are often presented as faces behind sheets of water, whether it be steamy shower door, or within a pool of tranquility.

“I chased realism until it began to unravel and deconstruct itself. I am exploring the possibility and potential where representational painting and abstraction meet – if both can coexist in the same moment.”
