Berlin-based Nike Schroeder takes needlework to a new style (at least in our eyes) with some very detailed portraits of her friends and some based on photographs. She makes embrodiery appear like illustration, using different color schemes and colored canvases to create mood.

Collaborators since 2005, this Berlin Street Art / fine art duo loves paper, public space, and a planned form of accidental beauty. Using techniques of screen print and collage, their figurative experiments dip into the nostalgic future and the ridiculous; together they toil as self-styled enthusiastic workers in a robot factory.

Strategically unloading 500 liters of paint into a busy intersection seems like a liability if you ask me, bright color paint going every which way could easly cause confusion and distraction. Luckily, no one crashed and Dutch performance artist Lepe B.T. Rubingh, who dropped this in Berlin in 2010, can dodge a lawsuit.

Fabulous disaster, dispair, and a little bit of lustful desire... the story behind Miu Mao's work is pretty incredible, and she shows that by creating erotic works with an underlying theme of how 'everything we survive makes us stronger'. Born in central Asia, now living in Berlin, Mao is a gorgeous disaster in progress.

When artist Terry Haggerty isn't splitting time between New York and Berlin he is creating staggering work. Paintings consisting of merely lines, Frank Stella comes to mind, isn't necessarily a new concept. Haggerty certainly takes up a notch by creating site specific works, more specifically massive wall drawings. See more of Haggerty's work after the jump . . .

Last month, when we showed you the trailer for Berlin-based David OReilly's "The External World," we were confused by his description of the film, "A boy learns to play piano." There was no piano in the trailer. Now, after screening at the 67th Venice Film Festival and Sundance 2011, OReilly has released the full-length, and there is a boy learning piano. Watch in full after the jump . . .
