- No matter the urban landscape, street art has made its mark in socio-political and art historical discourses. Street art can be traced back to the early 20th century when artists began using urban spaces as a canvas for their work. However, it wasn't until the 1960s and 1970s that the term "street art" began to be used to describe this type of art. One of the earliest examples of street art is the work of French artist Jean Dubuffet. Dubuffet's "Hourloupe" series, which he began in 1962, ...

- Every so often, you'll see a portrait-of-the-artist documentary that's so beautifully made, about a figure of such unique fascination, whose art is so perfectly showcased by the documentary format, that when it's over you can't believe the film hadn't existed until now. It feels, in its way, essential. " Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV " is like that. Directed by Amanda Kim (it's her first feature, and so well-done that I expect it to be the first of many), it's a tantalizing portrait of ...

- Painting might be older than catalogued thanks to one particular detail How much can a copy be worth?
