  Art Daily is Now a Teenager
Art Daily Art News is 13This news is a little late as I have been a very absent blog editor lately, but I keep telling myself that it's better late than never.

This month the art news site Art Daily turned 13! In internet years thirteen is almost ancient.. well done Art Daily.

Here's to another 13 years!

Five years no longer sounds old to me.

  Luna Roslyn - Queen of Cities EP
Just thought I would share a nice EP called Queen of Cities put out by Luna Roslyn. They're using one of my paintings from Turkey for the cover. Hear the songs on their MySpace page here or support them by buying the album online here. It's good for the ears while holding a brush!

Luna Roslyn is also on Facebook.

  Gagosian Store
Gagosian retail storeARTINFO has reported on the new retail outlet of gallery mogul Larry Gagosian..
"The sleek, 2,500-square-foot, bi-level space, which opened to the public this past weekend, also inaugurates London import (and Gagosian artist) Damien Hirst’s publishing company and retail shop Other Criteria on the lower level, making for a kind of casual art emporium with a fancy ZIP code." ArtInfo

I'm not against making money from art, but I can't help thinking some of the super-famous art dealers and artists are taking advantage of poor rich folk. At the end of the day though, it's a reflection of society rather than the gallery or artist. People love stuff, especially expensive stuff that can make them feel a part of the cool club. So, I'm sure the Gagosian retail store will be a great success.

See some of the products available to buy on the ArtInfo article.

  Australian Art Connoisseur
Here's a distinguished Australian art expert talking about art. Please don't watch this video if the F-word offends.



The actor is Heath Franklin (not Eric Bana) and he's playing the role of career criminal Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read. The Vincent/ear thing is worth noting as Chopper cut off his own ears.. and I believe he was shot several times also. The last artwork is of the Australian artist Ken Done for those that don't know (most people outside of Australia I would imagine).

  Home by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
Home is worth the long wait if you have a slow internet connection. The makers of the film have more videos on their YouTube page.

I stopped reading books and news on the environment a while ago as they're just too depressing, but with this one they at least throw in a little hope towards the end. Even if you're not interested in the environment and think the planet is doing just fine, it's worth watching for the spectacular landscapes. We do live on an amazing piece of rock.

I wish someone would tell environmentalists and green groups that fear doesn't work with everyone. You can hit me with a stick all day and I won't move an inch but if you dangle a carrot in front of me I'll get up and do something about it.
