California-born artist Barry McGee started out on the street, inspired by the graffiti scene in early ’90s San Francisco, but has later turned to paintings of undulating geometries and concentric lines that seem more cerebral than populist. This show at the Watari-Um comes exactly a decade after McGee's first exhibition at the same museum and features work created together with his wife, Clare Rojas. Also set to take part in this summer's Reborn Art Festival up in Tohoku, McGee and his tongue-in-cheek blending of art and commerce are well worth revisiting. (timeout).

Around Art Studio [ The creative process is not like a situation where you get struck by a single lightning bolt. You have ongoing discoveries, and there's ongoing creative revelations. Yes, it's really helpful to be marching toward a specific destination, but, along the way, you must allow yourself room for your ideas to blossom, take root, and grow - Carlton Cuse ]
I had shot over thousands photos on my recent travel to Japan. I need to spend some time sorting though and editing those bunch of pictures but I'll be sure to post them here for everyone to see. I snapped these photos with my Sony Alpha 300a in Ginza. The Ginza (銀座) is Tokyo's most famous upmarket shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, night clubs and cafes. This place does not suit my lifestyle but there are lots of art galleries here.

Postcard from my hometown : A voice in the wildness. I was living here for 13 years. Still tiger! Hometown - Kotabaru, Kalimantan Selatan, Indonesia. This district has an area of 9442.46 km ² and has a population of as many as 290 142 people (result of Indonesian Population Census 2010 ) with sea fishermen as much as 15 961 inhabitants. This area is a motto "Sa-ijaan" (Banjar language) which means: Semufakat, a heart and a one word yes.
This has nothing to do with Halloween. It's no secret that I'm obsessed with skulls and skeletons since I was 15. Those objects are beautiful form of arts, fragile and the state of death and life. Could you imagine humans and animals without their skeletons? They're weak and lost, and hey, you won't able to do anything. Hmm, just a piece of meat with a face. I would love to be an anthropologist someday, traveling to Egypt and found new mummies. Who cares about the curses. I want to be able to touch the human bones from the past, learning about variety species of human (and animal) that lived million and million years ago. Let's see if I can predict my future. From artist to be an anthropologist? Why not :D High-five to the guy who created pinterest, I can spend million hours staring and pinning all this image collection.

I've been busy lately; working 7 days a week (5 days as graphic designer, 2 days as cafe staff and midnight freelancer). I'm preparing to start my own small business. I joined this awesome screen printing workshop, run by Harvest Textiles, a Melbourne based textile design trio. Fun experience, lovely people and wonderful atmosphere. Check their programs here.
