We have some new artwork in store. Illustrated over 170 years ago these anatomical drawings were made in London by a W. Bragg. Drawn 'from nature', they are genuine articles of medical history. See more of this image here.

Saner a street artist form Mexico along with Remed a French street artist have adorned the textured grey walls of the Southbank centre here in London. The work has been commissioned by Wahaca who have converted 8 shipping containers into a temporary mexican restaurant and tequila bar with a view of the Thames. The popping colours and bold shapes are a welcome break from grey walls and dull skies. The food looks good too.

We are loving this enlightened idea by artist Sergia Silva. A perfect meeting of old and new, simplicity and beauty.

These are not computer designed but the amazing hand drawn artwork of American Eugene Andolsek. The intensely colourful and intricate works were created by Andolsek starting in the 1950's as a calming pastime. Using a black pen, graph paper, a compass and coloured markers he created piece after piece without even considering them as art. It wasn't until the end of his life that a care worker found his trove of incredible work and brought it to wider attention. Just before his death in 2008 Eugene Andolsek's work was part of an exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum. Over a 60 year period he produced around 2000 works which had never been on display, just hidden away in cupboards and old trunks. He was a truly secret artist.
