Art - Exclusive Interview with Tanja McKinley.

Tanja Babic is causing quite the stir in the world of abstract art. Having exhibited her work all over the world she came to my attention on instagram and along with her 22.6k followers, I too was a fan. Graduating from the University of Belgrade with an MA in fine art under Professor Zoran Vuković and an active member of the association of fine artists of Serbia, Tanja is looking forward to her next exhibition in La Artcore in Los Angeles, California in April of 2019. Abstract art can be a mystery to some as the familiarity with the realism of the subject matter is blended, mixed and distorted beyond recognition on the cavas leaving the viewer lost and detached from the artists work. However, abstract painting is the extreme expression of human emotion and thus to love and understand it, you must see and feel the artists work with your heart: ‘My work is filled with emotions, and I want the viewer to feel them too.’

Art – Exclusive Interview with Lovely Rita – 'The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes'

Picture yourself in a 15th Century Church somewhere in France, Lovely Rita is listening to music, the classics, dreaming of tangerine tress and marmalade skies. The colours in her mind slowly and deliberately swimming together to form the geometric shapes that will come together, revealing her muse in painted stained-glass sanctity. Rita’s paintings are wonderous and otherworldly, what was her creative process? The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes.

Art – Exclusive Interview with Alexander Van Glitch - Scratching the Surface: Religion, Faith, Death, Celebrity & Addiction.

Alexander Van Glitch makes me feel uncomfortable. Where most artists are concerned with conventional beauty, Van Glitch is pulling, ever so slightly and delicately, at the pools of imperfections in the human condition.

The ‘Glitch’, the ‘Distortion’ in his work, reflecting at his audience their own concealed data corruptions. Intrigued, I reached out to Alexander Van Glitch, he wants to ‘scratch under surface’ of human life. I wanted to scratch under the surface of his.

Film - Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse - there's a new webslinger in town

Meanwhile, in another dimension, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is bitten by a radioactive spider while exploring the subway with his Uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali). When he witnesses the opening of an trans-dimensional portal orchestrated by Kingpin (Liev Schreiber), Miles becomes a magnet for pan-dimensional Spider-people pulled into his reality. These include Peter B Parker (Jake Johnson), an alternate Spider-man who prefers sweatpants to spandex; Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), her reality’s Spider-woman; Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), a black-and-white crime-fighter plucked from the 1930s; Peni Parker, a child psychically bonded with a spider-bot (Kimiko Glenn); and Peter Porker (John Mulaney): Spider-pig. Together, they must close down the portal, but not before using it to return each of them to their respective New Yorks.

Wines - Exclusive Interview with Christophe Bouvet - Château Mouresse - Vidauban - Var

In the summer of 2010, perusing the short but promising wine list of the Bistrot d’Antoine in Old Nice, I plumped for a mid-range Côtes de Provence rosé that was unknown to me: “Classic” from Château Mouresse, at €28. It was seriously good: fruity but dry and with a pale pink blush. On the back label was the vineyard's URL giving its address in Vidauban, in the neighbouring département of the Var. Needless to say I beat a path to their door and tasted their other wines, all of which I found to be as good as that rosé - which cost only about €6.50 direct from the vineyard. So, with twisted shopaholic’s logic, I figured the more I buy the more I save! In due course, once friends and family had tasted those wines and concurred with their quality and great value, Château Mouresse became a staple of my cellar ever since.

Travel - How to Get a Job in Antarctica.

I have so many wonderful memories of my time in Antarctica: lying in my bunk in our Nissen hut home, hearing the rumbling of the glaciers calving around us and the tapping of the sheathbills feet as they ran back and forth on our tin roof; discovering the first gentoo chick had hatched on midwinter’s day and our island being freed from the surrounding ice for the first time; the sound and smell of the gentoo penguins braying around us; ice flowing in and out of the bay around the island on beautiful clear blue-sky days and penguin chicks catching snowflakes in their beaks.

Art - INTERVIEW with L.E.C.R.I - Self Taught Punk Inspired Instagram Sensation.

Instagram is a strange place. Drowning in the soulless narcissism of body perfect imagery lie hidden some truly remarkable artists. These maverick indie painters can often have thousands of followers and yet remain completely unknown to the masses, their talent gasping for air under the weight of a billion Dorian Grey’s.

However, through the insta-mist one can find an exceptional shining talent and with this discovery in hand, I set about contacting L.E.C.R.I, to find out more about his work, his story and what inspires Max Savidan A.K.A L.E.C.R.I.
