We posted this photo by Robert Banat on our Instagram the other day and got a ton of response. Brooklyn-based artist, Tom Fruin, has built a 25' tall water tank created with 1,000 salvaged plexiglass pieces found around NYC. The piece is illuminated by natural light in day time, and during night a Ryan Holsopple ardunio-controlled light show goes off inside the work.

We have shown you the photoreal paintings of Brooklyn-based painter Alyssa Monks in the past in our Erotica section, and today we were really enjoying her new works painted in 2012. As the years have gone on, Monks' hyperreal paintings have become more abstract, with flesh hiding behind steamed surfaces, obscuring the body and facial expressions, and figures are more in performance with their poses than in works past.

Brooklyn-based, Zurich-born Chrissy Angliker is set to open a new series of drip paintings, Control and Chaos, at Knoerle & Baettig Gallery in Winterthur, Switzerland this Saturday, May 12. As Angliker says of the series, "The focus of this painting style lies in creating a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable. For every intentional mark, there follows a free-falling drip, challenging it. I am searching for a sense of grace in the transition between these two opposing elements."

A history lesson from Brooklyn's Duke Riley: Thousands of years ago, the Jade Emperor decided to assign an animal’s name to every year, in order to simplify the calendar for the people of China. A swimming race amongst twelve animals across the mighty river was organized to determine the sequential order in which year they would appear. This would become the Shengxiao, the Chinese zodiac. And now, Duke is going to recreate this race.
