Igor Skaletsky does have what it takes to be a collage master. Born in 1978 in Russia, this freelance illustrator has travelled in the hot spots of contemporary art, including Israel and Germany, to find his own visual identity. The result of this initiatory trip is a unique technique, combining digital photomontage with acrylic paint and varnish.
Skaletsky’s pleasure is to collide Early Netherlandish painters and Italian Renaissance masters with trendy supermodels and icons of the tattoo culture, such as Zombie Boy. He denudes the characters of famous paintings to reveal their tattooed bodies, flirting with irreverence and even blasphemy.
His creations, dark and cold, are a fascinating combination of laidback lowbrow art and hieratic highbrow masterpieces : the Russian artist has made the choice of the everything or nothing, emulating both David Lachapelle and Hieronymus Bosch in their ironical way of connecting morbid…

Week 34 of trump’s presidency: Experts in authoritarianism advise to keep a list of things subtly changing around you, so you’ll remember.

July 8, 2017

This is arguably the most alarming weekly list so far. A plot that has played out week-by-week as Trump alienated our allies while cozying up to authoritarians, followed by his embarrassing behavior at the NATO and G7 meetings, culminated this week at the G20 with US isolationism. This video, which traces weekly not normal items, explains why Putin is the winner in this new world alignment.

This week Trump amped-up his assault on the media, including encouraging violence. With this, Trump has distracted the country and media, and taken back the narrative. In the atmosphere of chaos, this week also stands out for the number of important stories that received little or no media coverage.

  1. As more and more states refused…

Triveni Sangam


Hi Everyone,

Last Saturday I went to Allahabad for my best friend’s engagement. I went there only for a day, nevertheless I have gotten an impression and I really liked Triveni Sangam.

The Triveni Sangam in Allahabad is a confluence of 3 rivers, the Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati. Of these three, the river Saraswati is invisible and is said to flow underground and join the other two rivers from below. The river Yamuna merges into the Ganges at this point and the Ganges continues on until it meets the sea at the Bay of Bengal.

Right after the engagement ceremony we went back to hotel and planned to take holy dip in Triveni Sangam. When we reached the bank, the scene was so alluring. Waters meet away from the Yamuna bank and visitors take boats from Bank to Sangam.

Without wasting time we inquired about the rates which boat owners…

Surrealist Quotes

Strange Goings On In The Shed

th Image: Lifehack quotes

As Sunday afternoon sashays into Sunday evening my spirit is moved towards the ridiculous and surreal. A place hidden well in fluid shadows and cascading stardust. The great masters of the art, sorry, Art, move into view. Here are words of wisdom and perhaps also discordance from a few of my favourite Surrealists.

White Rabbit stares at me and looks, em, slightly impressed.

“Hidden shadows and cascading stardust?” he mutters. Then winks at me. This girl done good.

I’m still searching.


Mysteries can be unveiled, revealed, made known. That is part of our journey.

His Kampf

Needull in a haystack


Graeme Wood writes a detail profile of his classmate Richard Spencer,who has become an icon for white supremacists.

Spencer must have known that the life he was choosing would get him hated and taunted. But he seemed at most half-aware that it would get him slugged in the face, and completely unaware that it might get him killed. Fifty years ago, George Lincoln Rockwell, the urbane leader of the American Nazi Party, was shot dead in the parking lot of a laundromat, just seven miles from where Spencer lives now. There must be an intellectual thrill in knowing that people might care enough to want to kill you. Spencer seemed unsure whether the thrill would remain worth the risk.

Nagelstein e o perigoso flerte de parcela dos gaúchos com o fascismo

Luíz Müller Blog

MBL NAGELSTEIN Ataques a grupos políticos de esquerda são a tônica do Vereador 

Para muitos, o fascismo e o nazismo são coisas do Século passado. Não são. Eles estão bem vivos e se alimentam da insegurança, do medo, do ódio e da consequente violência que advém a estes males. O Rio Grande do Sul avança perigosamente numa “senda” que leva ao fascismo. A Força Policial do Estado é usada despudoradamente para impingir o medo à todos que brigam por direitos. Um Deputado no exercício de sua função parlamentar foi agredido, algemado e preso. Algo que nem na época da ditadura militar acontecia. E nada acontece com o comando da Brigada Militar,  e muito menos com os soldados que fizeram esta agressão. O sinal é claro: Se pode fazer isto com um Deputado, pode fazer com qualquer um. Nestes dias também, milicianos do MBL agrediram Servidores Municipais que se mobilizavam por temas…
