Although I can imagine anyone eating these at an art museum or design related event, these pantone inspired colour swatch tarts were created for a feature in french culinary magazine fricote, by french food designer Emilie de Griottes. These fantastic tart based delicacies range from having berries, carrots, lemon and other fruits to replicate the pantone colour it is meant to represent. The magazine has included the recipe so any avid foodie can recreate these works of art for themselves: fricote issue number 6 (2012). Overall I love how Emilie has taken pantone swatching to the next level not only is this fun, its tasty and creative!

The German artist has reinterpretation the art of restoration, who knew the small coloured lego blocks would ironically spark the idea to actually complete buildings and monuments the very things that children tend to build with them. Vormann, has truly brightened up the aesethic nature of these locations with brightly coloured plastic lego pieces and in turn inspire on lookers to stop and take note.
Now that I’ve become aware of the fact that he has adorned the city of Boston, I will definitely be in search to see this collection of work in the flesh!

With the aid of assistants, Paredes meticulously paints an disguises her own body to allow her to fit seamlessly into each of her portraits. Paredes explains her technique as a way of making herself part of the landscape ïn a quest of belonging.
“The theme behind all is re-location after displacement and migration and how one has to adjust in order to belong. Tough it is, but it has to be done, without forgetting our origin.
