Nicholas Max Scarpinato is only 17 years old. Yup, this young photographer is still in high school. The work isn’t fully matured but just think back to what you were up to when you were a teenager and you’ll realize why Nicholas is someone worth keeping an eye on.
One click on A2’s “collection” tab reveals a slew of objects that you either wish you had thought of or owned already. Bold primary and secondary colors dominate their pieces given them a playful but sophisticated feel. Their designs are smart, simple and playful and embody the spirit of Swedish design.
Dane Lovett mixes retro and modern electronics with the tried and true classic, floral still life, to create a completely modern take on the idea of “still life”.

Jake and Dinos Chapman have been some of my favorite artists to emerge from the YBA’s. With each show they seem to step up the level of gore, shock, and grotesque imagery mixed in with historical and cultural themes. For the past year, Jake and Dinos have been working in separate studios to produce a series of works in isolation from each other. Only in the staging of their current show at Whitecube will each become aware of what the other has done. Unlike Gilbert & George, for whom Jake and Dinos worked at times as studio assistants, their practice is not one of ‘singular duality’. They have always discussed, debated, argued and on occasion fought over creative and cultural ideas, but in this exhibition they will scrutinise and confront the whole idea of creative collaboration. Hear the brothers discuss the process for creating this show, get a walk through of the show, and hear them talk smack about fellow YBA artist Tracy Emin after the jump.
