We have always wanted to stay at the famed Treehotel in the northern Swedish wilderness. It takes isolated luxury to a whole new level. One of the benefits of going is having your very own Fire In the Sky moment with the UFO treehouse. It ain't cheap at $600 a night, but isolation, a luxury treehouse, and UFOs should never come cheap.

Misaki Kawai, whom we have profiled in the magazine, has a great-appearing installation and exhibition, Big Bubbles, at Malmo Konsthall in Malmo, Sweden up through November 27. From the images we have seen, the exhibition almost looks like a children's fantasyland, with interactive installations and colorful characters.

Sometimes you just want to see a highly-skilled, traditional tattoo artist, and Malmö, Sweden's Peter Lagergren is one of those talents. There is so much good stuff coming out of Scandinavia right now in the arts, and Langergren's tattoo work is just another example.

We just came across the paintings of Swedish artist Fredrik Akum today, and around the office, we are quite impressed with the work. Using acrylic, the young Akum looks as if he is recreating a photo filter application. A really nice collection of painting after the jump . . .

Swedish artist and jeweler George Chamoun created these digital collages by merging images of contemporary movie star icons with their counterparts from the past. Chamoun commented: The pictures are not morphed in any way. What you see is a collage of two different people in each picture. Did it take me a long time to find the right pictures? Hell yes it did!

There is no denying the cleverness of Stockholm, Sweden-based Anders Krisar's sculptures, titled Medicine Man and Medicine Mom, respectively. Taking hundreds of pharmaceutical pills and arranging them to create a human face is a good bit of conceptual art.
