Thomas Canto recently introduced his latest big project, the Illusory Perspectives installation at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. This large installation continues his series of futuristic aesthetics-oriented works which combine urban and geometrical elements in an eclectic abstract form.

The wet and soiled items were left behind in Idomeni as the refugees moved on, at […]

In its 14th edition, the fair relocates back to Deuville Beach Resort, from the Fontainebleau Miami Beach […]
