Art News!

Hello there!

Remember when I used to blog twice a week?
Yeah, me neither, it’s been too long!
I completely blame social media. I really update over there so often that I don’t do it here.
Currently twice on my Instagram and one video per week on Youtube.
But it’s a mistake! Social media comes and goes, some stay some die, but I have full control over my own website.

Also, got a newsletter and my subscribers know always first when I have some new art available.

Google Analytics? Gone!

It took me forever to realize this, but I have been recently looking for a new coder for my website maintenance and during one chat I realized I never use google analytics, but they reap the benefits of all the data collected from you guys who come here to see my art.
And so after a few days of thinking and a bunch on online searches, I decided to get rid of it, and yes, I removed google analytics from my website.
No more useless data tracking!

This website still uses cookies, as, from my understanding, you can’t have a webshop, blog and contact form without them, but hey, it’s a lot less invasive now.

Human Tide + Conservation

I have also finally finished a new artwork to put on my website that doesn’t go through a gallery! This one is my third polar bear sculpture and a lot darker than the previous ones. but the world is a mess in terms of environment, politics and social questions. So it feels accurate.
I went for “human tide” because it reminded me of a “black tide” (the oil spill) but this time, the problem is us, humans.
From now on I will also give off 10% to conservation organizations from my art sales. Considering systemic change is still far from upon us, I feel that this bandaid is quite crucial.

#GameOfShrooms

On a more cheerful note, I participate in a worldwide game/event created by @attayumfactory
The idea is to create mushroom related art, hide it where you live and people can then seek and find it to keep. I know one of my friends is really interested so at least I know someone will find and keep it, that really was my biggest fear, that nobody would want it ^^’
I will be hiding blue boletus somewhere in Vannes this coming Saturday, August 15.

I realize I didn’t write this here on this blog, but my gaz mask is currently in London, so if you live there or are not far from there, go see it. I wrote about it my portfolio/shop. I always update it when I have new artworks, I just don’t always blog about it.
I highly encourage you to go check it out, I think art should be experienced in real if you can, just make an appointment with Trinity Art Gallery first.
Available, please contact Trinity Art Gallery in London if interested.
