Nest-like forms inspire British artist Laura Bacon’s sculptures and they are often nestled in trees, on the sides of buildings, and riverbanks. "Whilst the scale and impact varies from striking to subtle (sometimes only visible upon a quizzical double take), I relish the opportunity to let a building 'feed' the form, as if some part of the building is exhaling into the work."

Laurent Moreau was born in Britain in 1982 and currently lives and works in Strasbourg and shares a studio with other illustrators. 'Now, in my work as an illustrator or a graphic designer, when I realize an image, I perfectly know how it will be printed and which are the constraints. My work is influenced by my passion for printing as well: a limited range of colors, little dots, importance of the typography.' she states.

Marina Muun is a Bulgarian artist currently working in the UK. Each of her paintings--often colorfully patterned body-landscape hybrids--"attempt to capture and convey a feeling, a thought or a daydream and infuse them with a sense of the fantastical and a love for detail. Her paintings have a deliberate naive feel although that may not all be true for the subject itself."

We have been in a balloon sort of mood on the site in recent week (see the balloon installation dreamland here), and Marseille-based artist Olivier Grossetête has constructed a bridge over a pond, suspended by balloons. Tell that to the engineers creating the new Bay Bridge in SF if balloons do the trick?

Finally, we found our Halloween costume. Recently, Damien Hirst's 66-foot bronze sculpture, Verity, was placed/erected/dropped in the coastal town of Ilfracombe, England. That is 66-feet of naked pregnant bronze woman holding a sword aloft standing upon legal books, with half her innards exposed and half her body just fully bronze and naked. For those into language, "verity" means "truth" in Italian.

If you have ever worn a crispy pair of dress shoes, maybe even golf spikes on concrete, you know the sound of a crunchy landed of foot to ground. We can only assume the Apex Predator Shoes, made by British design firm Fantich & Young, using 1,050 teeth dentures, would give a much more brain rattling crunch sound when foot hits pavement.

This isn't the first time this year that we have shown the works of UK illustrator Ruben Ireland, as we enjoy the balance of figures and animals, and the great color balance in each piece. As Ireland notes, he mixes traditional techniques and digital processing to complete each work.
