This morning we take a look at he work of Berlin-based artist Clemens Behr. Clemen's process "begins with space, which acts as a basis for planning." According to the artist, "the space defines the colors and shapes, as well as any fixing or mounting possibilities and the dimensions of the piece." Once he has an idea or composition visualized, he usually begins by painting cardboard and screwing together a wooden frame to fix the cardboard to.

We love Asger Carlsen, and the universal "What the f@!&" moment everyone has when they first see an Asger Carlsen creation. Interviewed in our January 2013 issue, NYC-based Carlsen has taken his increasingly abstract Hester series to Berlin for an exhibition at Dittrich & Schlechtriem (formerly Pool Gallery). As everything with these works, things are not as they seem, or everything they seem. You decide.

Sometimes, the randomness of what icons make it into fine art blow our minds. Yes, the logo and mascot of the Cleveland Indians baseball team is iconic and has a certain vintage Americana design, but we would never thought it would be the basis of a fine art project, or public art project, in Berlin of all places. In 2011, fine artist Cyprien Gaillard placed the 10m tall Neon Indian on the Haus der Statistik at the Alexanderplatz in Berlin, putting it completely out of its baseball context.
