Our relation to images is conditioned by the various pictorial conventions of Western culture. Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus.

After experimenting with different materials, Franco Fasoli, aka Jaz, has taken a new artistic direction. The substantial change in his work is based on the use of collage as the fulcrum, and came about after his residency in Miami, culminating in his solo show "Choque" in the Celaya Brothers Gallery in Mexico City.

We just came across the works of Madrid-based collage artist Rocio Montoya on Empty Kingdom, and we loved the mixture of fashion and a little old-school porn-ish vibe from the set. One series in particular, 1900, is especially interesting, as the artist cuts, re-arranges, and adds to old magazine spreads and intimate scenes.

Australian artist Paul Yore is familiar with controversy. His work over the years has been met with intense discussions about censorship and artistic freedom. His art has been seized by police and he has had to defend himself against criminal charges. His work has been described as a "dystopian, fastidiously constructed world drenched in psychedelic color and engaging provactively with issues of gay politics, gender, environmental destructions and capitalist critique."

We love a good bit of fun when it comes to our morning look around the web, and these works of Alexey Kondakov, an artist based in Kiev, Ukraine, keep showing up and we love them. Kondakov takes very traditional, classical artworks and photoshops them into various moments of daily life. Who wants to ride on the bus with some classical angels?

Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

We are enjoying the (UN) Bonded Project of collages by Marcelo Monreal, mainly because we too get a little bored of the typical fashion shoot. These are fun interpretations and remixes of fashion shoots, with a little floral vibe thrown in...

Morgan Rosskpf's practice is centered around the processes of free drawing, collage, and intaglio printmaking. "I maintain parallel practices that are constantly shifting between mixed media, large-scale drawings and traditional black and white etchings...
