Shintaro Ohata born in Hiroshima, 1975 is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira (previously) recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo. As with much of his earlier sculptural and installation work the enormous piece is built from tapumes, a kind of temporary siding made from inexpensive wood that is commonly used to obscure construction sites. Oliveira uses the repurposed wood pieces as a skin nailed to an organic framework that looks intentionally like a large root system. Because the space provided by the museum was so immense, the artist expanded the installation into a fully immersive environment where viewers are welcome to enter the artwork and explore the cavernous interior. Transarquitetônica will be on view through the end of November this year, and you can watch the video above by Crane TV to hear Oliveira discuss its creation.

My name is Nelleke Pieters.
I am born and raised in the Netherlands, and first started photography about seven years ago. I have been hooked ever since
With my pictures I try to capture a certain atmosphere: As long as it has the right atmosphere I photograph all kinds of subjects.
That being said, a lot of my photos do ‘happen’ to be of trees. As I was born with an inherent attraction to the loveliness of them, and (living on the Dutch Veluwe) I have got the luxury of being close to loads as well. That makes a nice combination for quite a few forest photos!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

CAMINITO; An old train track converted into a street museum – Month in Buenos Aires – HAVANA CLUB GAP YEAR
This street has become one of the most important icons of Buenos Aires, a colorful and lively small street, which used to be a river, a train path, a tango song, a rubbish dump and now a museum.
Located on La Boca Neighborhood, and a few blocks away from one of the most important football stadiums in Argentina ‘La Bombonera’.
There are a lot of places to eat, dance and buy souvenirs. There are people dancing tango all along the street, it can be touristy, but worth walking around and taking some pictures of the beautiful place.
From the Obelisco there is a bus that goes to Caminito, bus #152 and it costs around 2 argentine pesos = 0,20 us dollar cents (has to be paid with coins), and there is a recommendation to visit the place during the day, as some people say the area is not very safe (although I didn’t feel unsafe there).
