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."
