There are so many things to love about Paul Ramirez Jonas’s “Public Trust” project. Most notably is the way that the most powerful promises are the simple ones collect off the street and not the ones picked out of the headlines. via Hyperallergic
These photos by Skander Khalif are amazing. There is humanity bursting from every shot. Beautiful! Check out A Train Full Of Emotions on Behance.
This great poem is worth the read: The Adventures of Amit Majmudar by Amit Majmudar
Love the colors and shapes in these linocuts by Dan Howden. The city seems so massive, yet so intimate in these pieces.
These watercolors by Sunga Park prove that the dreamy fades, washes and loose borders of watercolors don’t disqualify them from being great for depicting architecture.
Its too easy for most to dismiss collage as something that elementary school kids do with safety scissors and paste. Collage is cool, especially Haley Witman take.
