We want to go to Finland, and perhaps Antti Kalevi will give us reason to. The Helsinki, Finland-based artist has pretty much captured all the trends and styles of what is going on in art in 2015, and made a series of playful illustrations/computer drawings called "Art Show." These are fantastic.

We have been huge fans of the works of Jaume Plensa for a long time, and always like sneaking a peek at the sculpture he has up in the Crosby Street Hotel, but his public art is where its at. The artist has lived in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, England, France, USA, and Barcelona, and is best known for his works using the human figure comprised with numbers. He recently had works installed in Calgary, Alberta and Helsinki, Finland.
