Friday Featured Artists is back with . . . Martina Fugazzotto. Martina Fugazzotto makes sex-ed comics an intimate nostalgia art-form. She specializes in autobiographical stories of innocence and experience. Her website features over a dozen of these comics in full. They explore subjects like summer-camp love, lost virginity and her pre-occupation with all things vaginal. However, Ms Fugazzotto is now-one trick pony. Her early 90's dayglow/cartoon aesthetic ...

Since 1993, about 400 women have been killed, all were young, most were raped. There are still more women that have been abducted or are missing. These crimes have never been solved and continue to this day. The subject of this piece is Silvia Elena, a 17 year old ... Read More

Girl Graffiti

BY Web Intern in Artsy

Women have always been an imperative part of the urban art scene, with legends like Claw Money and Fafi making their mark on cities around the world.

Mike Mills in NYC

BY Laurie in Artsy

One of my most favorite living designers, Mike Mills (not the REM dude) is speaking at The Strand on Friday night in NYC. He's got a new book published by D.A.P. and will be having a conversation with cute curator Tim Barber. If you are not familiar with Mills, get googling! He is a super talented guy, and besides being an amazing graphic designer and visual artist has directed several films (Thumbsucker) and music videos (Air, Yoko, Blonde Redhead) and not to ...

This is the movie that Twilight should have been. Let the Right One In tells the love story between a shy 12-year-old blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy and his new neighbor who has a strange dietary restriction (she is a vampire). I'm rarely moved to tears at the end of movies these days, but by the end of this film I was crying as if I had seen The Lion King for the first time. It's full of cruelty, loneliness, love and redemption--the swimming pool scene at the end ... Read More
