Based on aerial views from Google Earth, Chinese artist Lu Xinjian creates abstract paintings of major cities across the world in his series City DNA. What appears to be a mess of abstract shapes and colors, soon becomes a coherent view of the subject city, allowing the city's nuances and unique characteristics to shine through.

Using some fancy cameras and a good eye, and maybe a little digital tweaking, photographer Nick Frank transformed the frantic, hustling and bustling Munich subway into inviting and very nicely composed spaces.

Completed in 2004, Umschreibung (or rewriting) is a surreal spiral steel staircase built by Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson. The staircase resides permanently in the courtyard of the global accounting firm KPMG in Munich. You may remember Eliasson’s name from his New York City Waterfalls project back in 2008, where the artist created four man-made waterfalls in the New York Harbor, one being directly under the Brooklyn Bridge that was around 100 feet tall.

German artist Rafael Gerlach, aka SATONE, as profiled in our June issue on newsstands now, is an illustrator and self-employed artist living and working in Munich who originally hails from Venezuela. The skilled graphic designer discovered his interest in graffiti early on, intently developing his style by finding a formal vocabulary that perpetrated a fascinating middle course between technocracy and the artwork of imaginary worlds.

Showing some very nice style and an interesting surface and presentation choice, Munich's Chaos Crew have tattooed a large piece of calfskin, documenting the year that was 2011. If you were ever to see a tattooed canvas on calfskin that has both Dirk Nowitzki, Osama Bin Laden, and Amy Winehouse, this is your chance.

Maybe we shouldn't be so impressed with an artist when we hear about their age, but the fact that Munich, Germany-based photographer Elizaveta Porodina is only 24-years old sort of blows our mind. There are some exquisite shots in here, with original compositions and dreamy scenarios that appear both to be fashion oriented with a bit of subconscious and sexual imagery. NSFW, a few "bare chest" shots after the jump.
