Tell us you have never done a little secret spying on your neighbors, even by accident, and we call you a liar. It's just the nature of humans, and illustrator Emiliano Ponzi has taken the concept of voyeurism (or peeping Tom) and created this fantastic appearing installation, The Sunrise Hotel, in Rome at Wunderkammern Gallery.

We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught. Over 200.000 bricks were needed to create this Roman scene and structure, and you even get the outdoor pavillions and walkways with gladiators and rulers surrounding the great Colosseum.

Alessandro Biffignandi was born in Rome in 1935, and supposedly he still lives there today. He painted hundreds of pulp covers and comic covers (aka “fumetti”) throughout the 50?s, 60?s and 70?s, occasionally even drawing for comics. In the 80?s he moved towards book cover illustration, and the 90?s found him focusing on calendar art. He is mostly a genre painter, focusing on the horror, spy, war, and science fiction genres.

We knew Sao Paulo-based Herbert Baglione was off to Rome for the Outdoor Festival as soon as we departed Nuart in Norway, and now we are seeing the looks of the multi-paneled mural he painted in Italy. We always like when Herbert adds the chaotic scratches above his characters, as he has done here with this panel.
