We have had an affinity for embroidery art over the years, with our Handmade Art book heavy on the medium. When we came across Ana Teresa Barboza's mixed media, embroidery art this past evening, we loved the combination of mediums made for an almost 3D experience. We like to say adult-themed, because you rarely see a little loving between the sheets down with a needle and thread, threading the needle, or however you want to say it.

Why not? We have been in a Wes Anderson mood with the "Bad Dads" show at Spoke Art, so might as well move onto the Wes Anderson Alphabet as produced by Madrid, Spain-based Hexagonall. We don't get all 26, but 18 posters representing the film canon that is Wes Anderson will suffice on this election day.

Halloween should be once a month for more reasons than I can explain here. The Misfits loved Halloween and so does Spain who painted this tribute. Smashed pumpkin makes for a nice touch.

One of our favorite contemporary Spanish artists, Daniel Munoz, aka SAN, opened a new exhibition at Delimbo Gallery in Sevilla, Spain titled, Posesiones de Ultramar. The show consists of a series of recent works, that directly tackle the problematic and the collateral experiences derived from the mural practice developed over the last few years.

We got a few images of this fantastic mural that RIPO finished in Tudela de Navarra, Spain for the Avant-Garde Urbano Festival. The name is perhaps even better: Surreal But So Real. That is our feeling about much of the great building-sized murals being completed in Europe these days. Thanks to Henrik Haven for the head's up.
