This is a fun offer. Matt Leines has taken to Etsy for the week to make "made-to-order" drawings of his famous Tiger Head figure. Leines notes, "Hand drawn and painted with ink and watercolor on Canson paper, the drawing measures 8" x 10" and will arrive unframed. However it will easily fit in any standard frame. This subject has been an enduring favorite for over a decade and now you can have it in your collection!"

Li Hongbo's stunning, stretchable, paper sculptures, inspired by both traditional folk art and his time as a student learning to sculpt, challenge our perceptions. The video is incredible...

Featured in our February 2014 issue, we love to see Olek back in San Francisco, with the installation "I Haven't A Single Explorer On My Planet" at the White Walls Project Space. As with much of Olek's work, there are political undertones and messages to be discovered...
