Canned Pineapple.

Kate and I had the pleasure of sharing Buddy and Shelbys story in Edition Five. We also came across some of their work in Nashville last year on our US podcast tour. I can confirm it's as good as it looks in pictures.

Studio Ibbini.

Julia Ibbini in collaboration with Stéphane Noyer, a computer scientist makes some AMAZING art that to me resembles ancient carvings with an accuracy and technical intricacy that is rare to see.

FREE ARTICLE: Dejan-Art Sculptor

Dejan was the first Serbian artist we featured. Once we saw his work we couldn't not reach out. Specifically the horses he carves. Following an agricultural path he quickly realised his passion was in Art and pursued it with everything he had.
