Any ideas for something along those lines that i'm not gonna hate?

Says here that its not going to be story of his life though, completely new story about love and revenge and stuff.

Probably a good thing.

Posted this in the World Cup thread, but here's probably more relevant.

Something we've done at work, 5 second animated clips of artists favourite world-cup moments.

Saw Mondrian and his Studios exhibition at Liverpool Tate recently. It didn't feature any of his figurative works, only the classic neoplastic grid paintings, so got a bit samey after a while, The full size recreation of his Paris studio was cool though.

It was being staged in tandem with a Nasreeen Mohamedi retrospective. Hadn't actually heard of her before but really liked her oil paintings and photographs - wasn't so keen on the grid works.

Going to see Anselm Kiefer at the RA on Sunday (high hopes for this) then the Turner Prize when it opens next week.

looking for help finding some info on pictures that I'm sure I saw on here ages ago. Japanese art, bit cartoonish. One picture of two girls jumping on someones elongated head, one picture of a red girl's head with really long neck with a tear coming from her eye, one of three demons eating people. Fuck that sounds weird when I read it back… Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I Visited the recent companion exhibition at the Turner Contemporary which only featured a handful of his grid works and was all the more interesting for it , showing many of his earlier landscape works.

The gallery itself is a fantastic space, Definitely worth a trip to Margate

What happened to Brian Sewell? I used to love reading his reviews every Thursday in the evening standard. It was literally the only thing worth reading in there.
They were so informative. Usually beyond the subject of the article.

Here they all are:
