We have always been fascinated by architectural fine art, whether it be Evan Hecox' city paintings or even the way that Ian Francis has incorporated buildings into his dreamy paintings. Today, we were struck by the work of Australian artist Paul Davies, whose work is primarily concerned with modern architecture, and has been influenced by the likes of Jeffrey Smart and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Having this job, you are presented really interesting artwork that expands your mind and makes you appreciate what the creative world is producing at any given time. Rarely have I been more blown away and/or in awe in seeing the mixed-media sculptures of Australia's Patricia Piccinini. Perhaps even disturbed. In a good way.

We are taken by the graphite on paper illustrations by 26-year old Sydney, Australia artist, George Nova. With popular subjects like Biggie, Tupac, Kate Moss, Michael Jackson and Rick Rubin, Nova creates photo-realistic quality drawings with the simplest of tools. Great works.

Famed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is currently showing at Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia, where he took a completely white room and gave a thousand colorful stickers to kids to apply throughout the installation space. The results, as you can imagine, is ordered chaos.

Yesterday, we showed you a collection of oil paintings by Australian painter Michael Peck, and last night, Metro Gallery (who hosted Peck's last solo show, The Landing, this past Nov-Dec 2011) sent us images of Peck's opening as well as a fantastic documentary, Within the Layers, that documents Peck's latest body of work.

You can get lost in a great realist painting, and Michael Peck's new series of oil on line works, exhibited recently at Metro Gallery in Armadale, Australia, are some of the best we have seen this year. Taking the subject of World War II and adding a contemporary feel and children to the scenes, Peck's work is based on isolation and displacement.

Alex Spremberg's current exhibition Wrong Angles (running until October 30th) examines painting and throw away materials surrounding the excessive consumer packaging of everyday life. Spremberg highlights these materials while simultaneously expressing a fascination with the texture and color of paint.

'An infinite motif of naked darlings, patterns and the primitive fauna of the sky complemented by a riot of satanic beasts, creeps and mutant night walkers vomiting up nostalgia.' The photo collage/illustrations of Tulsi Maya, an Australian based wonder.
