Women artists in conversation: Tiff Massey Q&A [Part I]

Tiff Massey is a young artist whose work ranges from wearable sculpture to large-scale public interventions.

Scottish home built on a tight budget oozes cool utilitarian vibes

When Rural Design Architects was approached by clients looking for a self-build on a very tight budget, the local firm knew they’d have to get creative. Armed with experience from previous self-build projects, the architects designed the Black House, a three-bedroom home with an artist’s studio and study on the Isle of Skye. The rugged and simple-to-build home sits lightly on the land and, in contrast to its mostly black facade, bursts with textures, colors, and art inside. Though breathtakin...

Controversial artist seeks to build a UFO-like house near Edvard Munchs studio

For the last years of his life, world-renowned artist Edvard Munch lived in a remote cabin in a forest outside of Oslo, where the solitude helped him produce hundreds of paintings and drawings. Since his death in 1944, the area was converted into an active artist colony and his estate, Ekely, has become a pilgrimage site for artists from around the world. However one particular artist is sparking controversy with plans to build an outlandish modern building – dubbed “A House to Die In” – on a n...

Atomic Liquors Las Vegas Painting by Borbay

The energy of Fremont street followed me to Idaho. While in Vegas, I created a smaller painting of the Atomic Liquors sign… but I wanted to dig deeper. Go larger. So I did, to the tune of three by five feet. You can jam out to the entire process in just over one minute. Do …

The Neon Guggenheim, aka Guggenheim #8 of 20

In the summer of 2009, I painted the Guggenheim on a 30″X30″ canvas and practically sold it on the street. In 2010, I longed to paint the Gugg once more… but it felt wrong. Opportunistic. Unless? I wondered… if I made a more serious commitment. And with that, I decided to paint a 30″X30″ Guggenheim, …
