We are getting to that time of the summer, where London gets a sporting focus for a few weeks, much to the chagrin of locals who probably get enough tourism as it is. But the arts programs and curation at some of London's top private galleries and public institutions have been spot on all year, and Gagosian Gallery has got into spirit with Warhol and Basquiat's 1985 collaboration, Olympic Rings.

Florian Meacci is French freelance illustrator/graphic designer based in London. He says, "My 2 main inspirations in life are fashion and comic books. I’m crazy about comic books, they are what made me want to be an illustrator... My art is about contradiction, I always try to put something unexpected. I like to combine a few things which are not made to be together."

We became fast friends with Melbourne's graffiti provocateur LUSH last year when he came to San Francisco for an exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery, and turned the gallery into strip show. All the things you hear about LUSH is that he pisses a ton of people off, and that he does so for some sort of Internet fame. Well, what's wrong with that? It's 2012, how else do you get famous? LUSH will be opening up shop in London on July 5 with a large warehouse show that will surely cause some angry comments here. That means this is all working...

We love being weirded out in the morning. Having a sort of tripped-out crayon-created homage to Hulk Hogan will do that to you. Peter Millard, a student at Royal College of Art, took the concept of one of the greatest actors of his time, Hulk Hogan, and gave him an animated tribute. Weird, funny, bizarre, and oh so good.
