Digressing from the latest trends of image processing perfections, Alex Sernambi offers an insight into the beauty of crude and fictional collages.
He translates his taste for the interpretation of an imaginative and symbolic future into an exclusive images exhibition titled About Tomorrow at ECARTA in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The show presents the work of three different artists, focusing in a collective imagery about the future with humor and irreverence.
See exclusive images gallery below for highlights from the show.
The Damien Hirst‘s exhibition (with all his key works from over twenty years) at Tate Modern is absolutely unmissable and can be quite disturbing as well.
I’ve taken a few pictures with my phone and here are the ones that highlight his work on death or life.

Graduated in Fine Arts at FAAP in São Paulo, Luciana also studied illustration at St. Martins Central, in London. Pop culture and music are a strong reference at a personal universe that she develops in many medias.
Acid humor, nihilism, erotic subjects and subliminal images under fluorescent masks that transpose humanity and bring out the instinct of emotions. Printing and drawing are as well common skills. The artist contributed to many projects and magazines related to fashion and design, and with brands such as Puma and Melissa. She created the Rock Chick label to produce authorial clothes that became famous by the images and objects designed and signed by Luciana. She also had solo exhibitions in galleys such as Adesivo (Porto Alegre) and ROJO Artspace (São Paulo), and grup shows in Needles and Pens (San Francisco) and in both TRANSFER shows (Santander Cultural / Porto Alegre and Pavilhão das Culturas Brasileiras / São Paulo).
Luciana opens a solo show tomorrow, dec, 10, at LOGO Gallery, showing a series of paintings mixed with silkscreen, in different shades of black ink, exploring anthropomorphous animals mostly in erotic situations. The images you see in this post are part of the show, called A Shot in Dark.
Who is the guest of the day: Ana Ferraz – manages commercial and art projects via NOZ.ART, works with Fita Tape (Porto Alegre) and LOGO (São Paulo) gallery and contributes to magazines/websites such as Void, +Soma, Fecal Face, among others.
A temporary and unique show is happening in France. It combines design, creativity and a passion for wine-making. New and vintage Atelier Fornasetti furniture pieces are on show at The Fornasetti Exhibition together with unseen drawings and paintings by the legendary Piero Fornasetti. The designer Barnaba Fornasetti, son of Piero, has produced a series of original works which symbolize the context in which they are displayed: the rich Burgundy soil, the strength with which they imbue Burgundy’s wines, as well as the sensitivity and femininity that are strong themes in the region. Then, he designed an original piece of furniture, The “L’Obélisque”, an exclusive label for a special edition to Maison Joseph Drouhin of their cuvée “Clos des Mouches, L’Ouvrée des Dames”, a symbol of femininity, and limited edition wooden cases each one adorned with an original motif. The exhibition is at Galerie Epokhé, in Beaune, Burgundy until January 29, 2012.
Who is the guest of the day: Keli Lynn Boop, journalist addicted to juice chlorophyll, love wine & art, weight and exotic things (not necessarily in that order). Want to know more? Click here: www.urgemag.com.br.

My mind is full of confronting ideas and expectations right now and this artwork by the artist Hans Hollein for the Venice Biennale in 1980 could perfectly represent these multiple facades of myself . ;)
Can’t wait to see the special reproduction made for the V&A Pos-modernism’s exhibition. Get the info here.
With interesting color composition the show presents a different perspective in seeing street art techniques such as stencil into frames and gallery spaces. The paintings are made out of stencil/Acrylic and Inc on canvas or metal. ;)
