It’s in this kind of occasion that I am SO happy I live in London. Felt artist Lucy Sparrow has taken over an old corner shop and transformed it into a felt wonderland. There you can find the usual stuff you would get from your local corner shop (from biscuits to pregnancy test!), Lucy hand stitched them all! I just cannot wait to go and see them all myself! If you can’t make it to London, not to worry, you can purchase any item on her e-shop.
The Cornershop, 19 Wellington Row, Bethnal Green, London.

When I read about Ana Serrano in my beloved Frankie Magazine, she was mainly talking about her tiny little reconstructions of houses from LA. I loved the idea, and decided to investigate about the rest of her work. My favourite was Salon of Beauty, an installation commissioned by Rice Gallery in Houston.
Right, so it might be because of the weather, but I am already longing for summer. The heat, the sunshine, the smell of sand mixed with the sweetness of an ice-cream… Heaven.
Anna Barlow is a British artist who is interested in food and our relationship with it. She chose to made these lovelies above by using clay, porcelain and glaze. Frozen and un-edible, yet so tasty looking.

These deliciously strange sculptures seem to be out of some weird dream.
Jaz Harold is a New York based artist who mixes sexual undertones with simple, almost childlike aesthetics. With her works, she emphasizes the ego and intimacy versus the stigma that society usually attaches to sex.
This is the type of art that would make anyone say “wow”. Mixing 2D painting with 3D objects, making bits of the paintings look like they are coming out into the real world, these are simply stunning.
Valerie Hegarty is an American artist who creates life-size installations where chaos and art are combined.
These surgically altered ceramics are just awesome. A mix of pretty vintage looking china with surgeon tools to reveal their inner beauty – very far away from the usual metaphor of surgery, with blood and guts.
