Steve Powers has freshly completed a new mural in Copenhagen that pays tribute to the Danish icon, Hans Christian Anderson, whose stories many Americans and Copenhageners grew up with. Located in front of the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, this piece was inspired from Andersen’s fairy tale The Red Shoes,a story about vanity and redemption, themes that easily connect the 19thcentury with the 21stcentury.

We've been following Freitag for a while now and we can't help all gather around a computer to watch their latest installments of video. Their newest videos explore the toughness of their bags, don't think Billy Mays infomercial though, think Sofia Coppola or Wes Anderson. The videos feature the F302 ROY bag, which they explain as a mobile high-security open-plan office with a removable laptop inner bag. Right on par with their unique sensibility and innovative style, Freitag does it again with these two. Watch them after the jump.

We thought we'd take a look through the work of one of our favorite photographers this morning, Robert Doisneau. Together with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau was a pioneer of photojournalism and one of France's best known photographers. Known for his modest, playful, ironic images, and juxtapositions (ha!), he has left behind an almost overwhelmingly extensive and broad legacy of images that continue to inspire us every time we revisit them.

Over the weekend, Saner opened his newest exhibition “El Cenit Del Venado" at Fifty24MX Gallery in Mexico City. This new body of work consisted of acrylic paintings, ink drawings and sculptures, all presented in a dim lit setting. Saner wrote about the exhibition saying, “The zenith refers to the time when the sun and the moon aligns in the sky above us, and it´s used as a metaphor of those instants where the human being is able to get out of the daily routine and be present, being able to connect with the Great Spirit.”
