The surrealist work of Auckland-based college artist, Peter Madden, is just incredible. Using old magazines and other materials, Madden has been able to carefully construct a two-dimensional frame work that is bursting at the seams with energy and vibrance. Each collage gives a spirited look at the world around us and is crammed with fantastical imagery.

It seems as if Steve "ESPO" Powers has been doing a bunch of great projects recently, first with his Icy Signs storefront, and now a collaborative porcelain art sculpture with Case Studyo, Fresh Starts Every Morning. Referencing ESPO's Today is the first day of the rest of your life painting, now you can pretend to start everyday like its a fresh start. Or perhaps you always do that. And if you don't, this will help.

Nicola Yeoman moved to London in 2001 and worked at the Guardian as a picture editor whilst studying furniture at Guildhall University. Her combined love of photography and her practical skills as a designer led to an accidental career as a set designer. Now, at first glance at least, it is her eye for the theatrical, honed and developed in this latter role, that most informs her current artworks.

Using his creative talents toward new mediums, Horfe recently collaborated with Case Studyo to create a limited edition white porcelain sculpture, Snake/Gun. The Parisian artist created a snake/gun with hand painted black details, each packaged in customized hand painted wooden boxes. Limited to a mere nine, these will be gone quick.

Dutch artist Elisabet Stienstra has created the Virgins of Apeldoorn, a series of three bronze statues of girls that appear to be floating over a park. When seen together, the bronze sculptures almost appear to be a sequential series of a girl turning over in her sleep. Not only is their the awkward moment for the passer-by to see underneath the girl's clothing, which to us seems intentional no matter how you slice it, the works really do appear to float. Stunning stuff.

A stunning series of wood sculptures (more like wood reformations and morphings) by Korean sculptor Jaeyho Lee. We like to think that these just magically appear in the woods, and an unsuspecting hiker just comes across them and begins to believe in UFOs. But alas, Lee is behind the work, and both in gallery and in nature, they are awe-inspiring.

Bernhard Handick is a young German artist and art-director of Shoutout-Magazine. With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Bernhard grew up in a multi cultural environment which he enjoyed a lot. He’s currently studying at the Folkwang university, working on his finals to get his diploma. Bernhard approaches photography as sculpting; arranging a picture like a painter and compose different sounds and layers like a musician.

Keep your eye’s on Los Angeles based artist Andrew Lewicki. Since graduating from Otis College in 2007 with a BFA, the multidisciplinary painter and sculpture has continued to take over the Southern California scene. Playing on the visual cues of everyday objects, Lewicki has created a series of installations that have a bit of wit and humor behind them.

We have shown the work of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, on the site before. This time, the artist has just created a site-specific sculpture/installation for the Mexican animation event Cut Out Fest. The Dead Fly is just that; a gigantic dead fly, belly-up, on a rooftop in Querétaro. The piece was made in conjunction of the Day of Dead festivities.
