London-based artist Nick Gentry calls his latest project a 'social art project.' People mail him archaic technology that he then uses to build the base of his work. In this series of paintings, Nick has used floppy disks! Remember those?

We love London-based artist Nathan James' new series of paintings entitled Creepshow. In the series he tries to focus on 'the lives and worlds of the underclass, failures, perverts and slackers, rather than beautiful, successful people.'

This morning we get lost in London-based artist Joe Fenton's intricately detailed graphite drawings. His imaginative and skilled work is part of a series titled The Landing. Fenton's past work is often surreal and just as meticulously drawn.

Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets features recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, including three videos inspired by the game of chess, as well as puppets and masks based on the characters, drawings, collages, dioramas, and sculptural works. Dzama has become known for his proliﬁc drawings, which are characterized by their distinctive palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds. In recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass three-dimensional work and ﬁlm and has developed an immediately recognizable language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic inﬂuences.

South African-born artist Marlene Steyn is a student at the Royal College of Art in London where she is working towards a degree in Painting. We are really enjoying the fantastical, patchwork of oddly comosted faces and worlds that she depicts in her work.

Los Angeles-based artist Pae White used 48 kilometers of thread in her latest installation at Peckham's South London Gallery. The threads criss-cross between two walls and the roof of the gallery, spelling out the words TIGER TIME and UNMATTERING on either wall. Pae often works with fragile materials to build large-scale sculptural works and installations.

We are really enjoying the street photography of London-based Nils Jorgensen this morning. Nils is a member of 'In-Public,' a group of photographers working in the streets who have a unique ability to see the unusual in everyday and to capture the moment. Like many of his peers, he was heavily influenced by the work of the legendary Paul Strand, Diane Arbus, Andre Kertesz, and Elliott Erwitt.
