A friend of mine uploaded a photo of Justine Mahoney’s work on Facebook and I fell in love with it instantly. Justine Mahoney is an artist based in Cape Town who she makes the most amazing sculptures. They remind me a little bit of Francios Van Reenen’s work, but they’re still really cool!

I think I need and not want the sculpture above of the twins, it’s so awesome.

– Justine Mahoney’s current work is based on one seminal miniature sculpture which recall’s her first memory. At the age of three she was hospitalised for a bone degenerating disease in her left leg, a plaster cast was worn for that year. Her work deals with the struggle of life. Emotional and physical states are represented by an array of growths, swellings, attachments and almost parasitic mutations. An army of toy soldiers multiply. Siamese twin, freak, maimed, wounded, weighted, monstrous, transformed children belie their perfect toy like surface.

Sanda Anderlon-10

Sanda Anderlon is an artist/illustrator who lives in Zagreb, Croatia. She makes both static and animated works, ranging in style, from metaphorical eye-candies, childish cartoons or old-school pen on paper studies to collaged XL narrative visual feasts, like the one below.

This giant collage is entitled Party, which describes as a drunken jungle in a two-storey collage. I just think it’s pure magic. There is so much going on, it’s like a modern day ‘Where’s Wally?’ Would love to get lost in this piece in real life.

This 308 mapartment is such a cool space. It’s so wide and open and awesome, imagine what you could do in it, interiors wise. I love the big windows, open plan layout and the outside terrace. Don’t get me wrong I love our flat, but I would kill for a space like this one. I want it, I want it, I want it.
