#tbt Works by Mequitta Ahuja included in the 2017 Sondheim Artscape Prize Finalists' Exhibition at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, USA. In both of those large paintings, the objects held by Mequitta Ahuja's subject are of singular importance: a slip of paper and a prism. In 'Renaissance Woman' (2016; pictured on the left), she distils into a single picture several themes of colonial America: the conventional pose of American women during the era derived from English mezzotints, the historical erasure of black people and interest during the period in the discoveries of Isaac Newton (Ahuja’s subject holds a prism to demonstrate her skilled manipulation of light and colour). In 'Sales Slip' (2017; pictured on the right), Ahuja portrays her subject with and within her paintings. She is author, owner, subject and seller. You can also see other works by Mequitta Ahuja in her current solo exhibition 'Notations' running until 2 June at the gallery. Stop by and check them out!

Asia section of my latest World Map - newest addition is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai... the tallest building in the world and not somewhere I ever want to go! With a combined phobia of lifts and heights, it’s somewhere to be actively avoided! . . . #world #travel #wanderlust #instagram #instatravel #travelgram #instaart #art #sculpture #modernart #contemporaryart #illustration #artoftheday #makersgonnamake #picame #ratedmodernart #hifructose #artcollector #artist #illustrationartists #geography #mapmakers #mapillustration #illustratedmap #cartography #saradrake #worldmap #asia #india #asianart

Shawky's solo exhibition 'The Crusades and Current Stories', on view at @arosartmuseum until September 9, chronicles the divisive relations between the West and the Middle East. #waelshawky #thecrusadesandcurrentstories # #aros #denmark #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #fineart #visualart #visualartist #ocula #oculaart Image courtesy ARoS Art Museum.

I love music. I love music A LOT. . Anyone who messages me often, knows my default answer to 'Wyd?' is most likely gonna be 'Listening to music.' . I'm a HUGE hip-hop/rap junkie (listening to Saba's Bucket List Project as I'm typing this). But when it comes to working, Blue Note Plays Bossa Nova is IT for me. It's almost like I function on autopilot while listening to these 3 albums. . It's just as important a tool as a liner brush, as phalto blue, as masking fluid, as gold leaf. . Still can't find out who's responsible for the album art. . #bytyreldebique . . . . . #modernpainting #paintingoftheday #intuitivepainting #abstractart #abstractexpressionism #abstractobsession #abstractpainting #bossanova #texture #gold #arttoolsandtechniques #print #artforsale #contemporaryart #blackabstraction #jazzmusic #homedecor #corporateart #interiordesign #hotelart #meetingroomart #blackartist #caribbeanartist #trinidad #tobago #stlucia #barbados
Our star lot from our Russian Sale on June 6 2018 is now available to view online. Nicholas Fechin's artistic legacy is mostly dominated by his mesmerising portraits, however throughout his life he executed a few remarkable still lives. "Still life with Daisies", was most probably painted in the 1930s when the artist moved from New York to Taos, New Mexico. After developing tuberculosis, doctors recommended the artist to move to a drier climate. This period became one of the most fruitful and bright periods in his artistic career. Nikolai Fechin's "Still life with daisies" leads the auction with a pre-sale estimate of £100,000 - 150,000. Russian sale, June 6 2018, New Bond Street, London at 3pm BST. #Bonhams #BonhamsLondon #NewBondStreet #BonhamsNewBondStreet #FineArt #Painting #artwork #artlovers #artist #exhibition #ondisplay #inspiration #artinfo #artnews #contemporaryart #artshow #artcollection #auction #bidding #collecting #collectionneur #RussianArt #RussianArtist #Daises #stilllife #flowers #bouquet
