We just saw this video, Sleeping Betty, by Claude Cloutier, posted by the National Film Board of Canada. Drawn in India ink, this animation video sets the "Perrault classic in Claude Cloutier’s disjointed, anachronistic and playful universe."

Marcel Dzama's brilliantly unique and witty watercolor illustrations have been a long time favorite of mine, and staple of inspiration in my own illustration practice. Marcel Dzama (born 1974 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in New York. His work has been exhibited internationally, in particular his ink and watercolor drawings, which illustrate strange pale and slender characters with a sense of vintage nostalgia.

Imagine heading ouver to the water cooler and catching a glimpse of a skull carved into the side of the cabinet? Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre is carving human and animal skeletons into various wood pieces, mostly things that humans use or sit on.

Winnipeg-based fine artist, Neil Farber, has a solo exhibition, Slugging, currently showing at Edward Thorp Gallery in NYC. We personally have been fans of Farber's work since he was a founding member of The Royal Art Lodge, an artist collective based in Winnipeg with Michael Dumontier and Marcel Dzama.

We were longtime fans of the Royal Art Lodge, a collective from Winnipeg that consisted of Marcel Dzama, Michael Dumontier, and Neil Farber. We even profiled their work in Feb 2007. Now we are very much into the wit, humor, and strong conceptual paintings of the second incarnation of Royal Art Lodge, Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber Ltd. A portfolio after the jump . . .

The 3D painting works on panes of glass by both Canadian artist David Spriggs and Chinese artist Xia Xiaowan are stunning. Viewers of the work find "shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space." More after the jump . . .

Maybe we are insensitive to real burning buildings, but this installation from Montreal-based artist Isabelle Hayeur is very interesting and one of the better pieces of art we have seen this weekend. This could lead to a boy cries wolf scenario, but you should watch the video after the jump to see how it works...
