Maintenant 11 is out

The spirit of Dada continues to thrive in this stunning annual collection of provocative and disruptive Dada-inspired art and writing culled from a plethora of top international contributors, with more than 100 color images. MAINTENANT 11: A JOURNAL OF CONTEMPORARY DADA WRITING AND ART is the latest edition of an annual collection of contemporary Dada work inspired by Dada instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan. This year’s theme, “An Eye for a Lie,” offers artists’ responses to the increasing madness of the world, punctuated by politically-charged art and writing. The journal is a full journey into the most imaginative minds in the world, showcasing work of artists and writers from more thirty countries on six of the seven continents. MAINTENANT is archived in museums worldwide.

New Drawings April-May 2017

Have been working on a new set of drawings. This time on thicker (400 g/m2) paper. The new set will join the larger collection Human Beings in the Digital World. In the coming year I will choose how to present the collection. Now over 300 drawings already, so the complete set will give some impact. Because every single drawing is very detailed it also needs space to be presented. We will see what is possible.

You can already view a large part of the collection on: www.ArtWanted.com/iuoma
