Art News

Here’s what has been happening in the world of art lately.

  • Sotheby’s has a preview of an upcoming contemporary art auction. They will also be showing live streaming video of the auction in New York at 7pm, on the 15th of May (tomorrow). Here’s a link to the World Clock if you want to figure out when that is.
  • CS Monitor looks at life after cartoon college.
  • talks about a Brett Whiteley painting that may set a record for the artist (and is actually a decent painting.. unlike this Whiteley and this John Brack)
  • Artopia discusses Alice Neel and the new Alice Neel documentary on the artist (here’s a link to the Neel Film).
  • Chris Jordan (photographer) depicts an ugly, yet strangely beautiful, “American self portrait”.
  • YouTube video of a guy karate chopping a portrait of Bruce Lee. Phil Hansen is the artist.
  • TimesOnline looks at Dali and Film, along with an exhibition at the Tate Modern.

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. Thanks for the heads up for the sothebys auction live feed. I will definately be tuning in!!

  2. I wish I listened to my own advice Nicholas, as I missed the live auction! Did anyone get to see it online? And was it worth watching?

    I know there were some records set on the night.

  3. Oh also, these Art News Monday posts seem to attract a lot of people just leaving a link to their website, which is not the purpose of the posts. If there’s just a link to your site with nothing of value added to the post, it just gets deleted.

    If you have posted some news of interest and want to send it to me, use the contact details here and I might post it next Monday. These are not link free for all posts though.
