Billy Kidd gets up close and personal with Cora Keegan in this sassy, sexy black-and-white photoshoot. Kidd floods the frame with Keegan's curves, giving us an uninterrupted visual of the lovely model flirting with the camera.Wearing only a black tank top or a tiger hat, Keegan is both cute and sexy. We're having trouble looking away.

We learned about Seattle-based fine artist Joseph Park from shows at both Roq La Rue and Rena Bransten, and realized we hadn't written about the artist in quite some time. Well, now is the time. His show at Bransten in 2011 was the last time we saw the work in person, but some of these works have made their way into other shows over the past few years. All these works are oil on panel.

Most of the time his work is controversial, people love to hate him while others find entertainment and humor in his work. Staying busy is one thing that can’t be denied about Australian graffiti prankster, Lush, with new stuff constantly being churned out. Here’s an update of what he’s been up to, as the artist shifts his attention to cops in his new walls and illustrations.

That menacing, wide-grinning fish you can’t escape seeing in the streets of Barcelona is finding his way around Paris as of recent. The artist responsible, Pez, has been painting his signature character for over a decade and they continue to multiply, turning into large schools of fish.

One of our favorite painters that we have learned about over the past year is Romanian artist Dan Voinea, who mixes both a classical realist style with an almost performance like character connstruction. Voinea just opened a solo show, A Momentary Rise of Reason, at Beers.Lambert Contemporary in London. As the gallery notes, " Yet while technically realistic and anatomically correctly proportioned, the works are characterized as much by their apparent lack of realism: their fantastical tendencies, collapsing or nondescript environments and preference for magic realist narratives. "

Los Angeles-based artist, Paul McCarthy, just took a giant poop in Hong Kong so to speak, but this wasn’t the first time this had happened, just the most recent. Back in 2008, the same ““Complex Pile” was installed in Switzerland and in a gust of wind took off bringing down a power line, breaking a greenhouse window, and smashed a window at a children’s home (We hope The Onion did something with this at some point).The outdoor sculpture park at the M+Museum in the West Kowloon district of Hong Kong is currently exhibiting this sculpture along with six other large inflatable sculptures by artists Cao Fei, Tam Wai Ping, Jeremy Delle, and Choi Jeong Hwa.
