This is the artist Francoise Nielly from south of France. She creates vibrant and expressive portraits which give the pieces a really nice character. I managed to see some of her work in a gallery in Barcelona and in the flesh they look even better. The colours stand out yet blend really well and the texture are beautiful.
The videos in french but its nice to see the work in process.

This an amazing project by undef and Joshua Noble, ill let the video do the talking.
'The eyes of the world have turned to the UK in recent years and have found some of the most exciting, genre-defying young artists to emerge from electronic music. But while London's scene can be fractious and hard to pin down, there seems to be something in the air in Bristol that unites its participants. Whether they're creating dubstep, house, techno or something else entirely, the cross-pollination in Bristol is unique. In RA's first official entry into video, we journey to Bristol to explore how the city has flourished in recent years, discovering why this small metropolis is one of the most influential electronic music outposts in the world today.'
A really insightful short documentary on Bristol electronic music here. Its nice to see the studios behind the artists and hear from there views on the scene.
Designer Mark Noad has created a more geographically version of the london tube map. I've always enjoyed Harry Becks 1931 design for the map visually and for its function. This redesign is interesting in dealing with distance and scale. Noad is 'said to be planning to take the new map viral by launching a new app for smart phones 'view and download a pdf version of the map here.
