The art of 29 year old Italian boxer and painter Omar Hassan, who stretches his canvases over cardboard to prevent them tearing as he pounds them with paint-dipped boxing gloves. The ‘paintings’ – part of a series he calls ‘Breaking Through Milano’ – sell for between €8,000 and €40,000 apiece, which he calls “a great satisfaction, but not the goal”.



You may recall Broadsheet’s popular Paint My Pet competition with PawPawPawPaw personalised pet portraits.

Behold (top and above) Buddy, the winning pet.

Artist Jane Fogarty of PawPawPaw chose Buddy for the hearty-tugging back story.

Owner Clare recalled of her late pet: “He was the most loyal, placid,and compassionate fella. He was the one person that was always there regardless, sharing garlic cheese chips together at 4 in the morning,or just licking my face when I wasn’t myself.”


Thanks all.

Painting Surgeries by French Canadian artist Marie-Lou Desmeules, an alarming blend of ‘performance, painting, sculpture and photography’. To wit:.

Marie-Lou works directly on her models. She covers them under acrylic paint, clothes, plastic, paper & hair to create sculptures out of them. The final artworks are photographs of the living sculptures.In her series “Celebrities”, Desmeules (re)creates pop culture icons and famous personalities. Her work questions the notion of beauty, the growing plastic surgery industry, genders & identity.
