Art + Design -

In The Hindu, Soumitra Das visits the recents works of Waswo X Waswo, India-based American photographer, artist and poet. On the discussion table? The prescient theme of statue-toppling in his works, a look at his charming, irreverent take on Rajasthani miniatures, and the reductionist effect of postmodernism. 


As Roy Lichtenstein’s stock keeps soaring in the art market, Sarah Dotson in Artsy gives us a generous tour of his body of work. 


In ARTnews, Greg Allen elaborates on The Kusama Industrial Complex, a heady mix of polka dots, mirror rooms, selfies, social media and an enigmatic artist that has of late captivated museums, the art market and, of course, our Instagram Feeds. 


If there’s one artist who has really made a comeback in the public consciousness in these times, it’s Edward Hopper. Known for his paintings that capture solitude and sunlight on walls like perhaps no other, here’s artnet news taking us behind one of his most iconic works.  


Known as the ‘King of Kink’, legendary photographer Helmut Newton shook the fashion world in the 70s with his innovative campaigns and magazine spreads. Here’s Hyperallergic catching up with Gero Von Boehm, the director of an all-new documentary on Newton.
