Artist Jacky Tsai - “Born in Shanghai, in 1984, Jacky Tsai came to London after completing a BA at the China Academy of Art to study at Central St Martins, quickly making an impact on the fashion world with his iconic Floral Skull design made for Alexander McQueen. Tsai’s vision is to create an unique marriage between traditional Eastern craftsmanship with contemporary Western pop art. His time at McQueen, where he worked in pattern design for the brand, created a fascination with fashion and textiles. Printing his striking images on silk, rather than paper, saw his floral skull image achieve critical acclaim.” (more)
Artist Karen Hurley uses buttons for more than simply fastening a coat. With her keen eye for color and composition, the Auckland, New Zealand-based artist has constructed some incredibly charming creations that are almost sculptural forms of pointillism.
Artfully Musing by Laura Carson(pinterest / facebook) - “I spent most of my career designing, building, and marketing computer software. After retiring, I needed a creative outlet. A few years ago I discovered mixed media collage and it’s been a love affair ever since. I’ve taught classes in altered books, handmade books, collage art and mixed media art. I’ve designed in the past for Grafix and I am currently on the Alpha Stamps design team.” [See More]

I have never written a review before but I would like to say Bravo to the author of these works, they are amazing. I have seen a lot of things in my life, but… In a word, I think these works EGGCUBISM, are a little funny and interesting as well and I can say that this is an attempt from the artist to create a novel way of perceiving perspective.
Netherlands, Rotterdam-based Artist Enno De Kroon - As a painter I consider egg cartons as two-and-a-half dimensional objects which offer me remarkable possibilities for imagery. The waves of the egg cartons limit the viewer’s perception; they also make him aware of his positioning towards the image. The intentional limitation in subjective perception gives room for imagination and recall: the process of occlusion. By a fusion of direct and indirect perception conventional imagery is overtaken. At first sight this leads to a physical and mental incompleteness, that forces an integration which can only take place within the inner experience, apart from time and space. (compare the ‘head of Janus’, that looks at the present and the future congruently.) Artist Enno De Kroon on saatchionline| flickr
(London, England | February 2012 - Seven Day Build)
Berg’s first project in the UK, Sky Poker teamed up to celebrate its highly anticipated ‘Play The Nation’ campaign. A division of BSkyB British Sky Broadcasting, Sky Poker is Britain’s leading online poker room. After a public Facebook vote, Sky challenged Berg to recreate one of London’s most famous landmarks: Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. In the city’s 2012 Olympic Parkvillage, Berg presented Big Ben at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford, the UK’s largest gaming venue and biggest poker room. The freestanding structure took 50,000 playing cards. Soccer AM host Max Rushden performed the knockdown, sending the enormous 14 x 7 1/2 ft composition flying with a kick of a soccer ball.
