Bronze sculptor John Lopez builds large and powerful beasts completely out of metal. From buffalo to cowboys on horseback, Lopez welds layer by layer of iron together to form life-sized creations filled with interesting details and texture.
His welded art style of sculpture was born through experimentation and a lack of necessary supplies. When the artist found himself out of materials to build a fence around the family cemetery, the artist made-do, using any scrap iron he could find on his uncle's ranch. The results—a completed gate and a small angel—were well received and thus a new career path was born.
Since then, Lopez has found ways to blend his talents as a bronze sculptor with scrap metal art to create his strikingly beautiful work. Born and raised on a ranch in Western South Dakota, it's not surprising that Lopez builds the things that he knows best: horses, cows, cowboys, and prairie wildlife.

Thomas teamed up with Thibault Zimmermann to form Zim&Zou, a french studio based in Nancy that explores different fields including paper sculpture, installation, graphic design, illustration. They studied graphic design during 3 years in an artschool. Rather than composing images on a computer, they prefer creating real objects with paper and taking photos out of them. A number of intricate illustrations actually come from the three-dimensional installations made by Zim&Zou. Their choice of paper is due to the versatility and good quality of the material, especially when it is sculpted and photographed. Zim&Zou's strength is to be a complementary and polyvalent duo.

White Rabbit, a Sydney-based gallery home for contemporary Chinese art.
The White Rabbit Gallery opened in 2009 to showcase what has become one of the world’s most significant collections of Chinese contemporary art. Dedicated to works made in the 21st century, the White Rabbit Collection is owned by Judith Neilson, who was inspired to establish it on a 2001 trip to Beijing. She was thrilled by the creative energy and technical quality of the works she saw and wanted to share them with people outside China. She makes regular trips to China and Taiwan to augment the Collection, which by early 2014 included nearly 1000 works by more than 350 artists.
The Gallery building, a Rolls-Royce service depot in the 1940s, was completely refitted as an exhibition space. Since the Gallery can house only a fraction of the Collection at any one time, there are two new exhibitions a year, each involving a full rehang; for this reason the Gallery closes during installations, usually in February and August.
The White Rabbit Gallery is a registered charitable institution funded solely by the philanthropic Neilson Foundation. Admission is free.

UK-based artist Robin Wight uses stainless steel wire to form stunning, dramatic sculptures of winged fairies dancing in the wind. The enchanting forms, which range in size from miniature to life-sized, seem to have a life of their own as they strike dynamic poses, contort their bodies, and hold onto windswept dandelions.
To construct his ethereal sculptures, Wight first builds a sturdy skeleton out of thick steel wire. He then uses different gauges of wire to create muscles, limbs, and skin, wrapping them around the skeleton until they form a dense, lifelike form. Inside each figure lies a heart of stone, sometimes engraved with messages to make each piece unique and personalized.

“A string quartet that can easily morph into a jazz band,” praised The New York Times’ Alan Kozinn following a March 2009 performance featuring the Quatuor Ebène.
Mesmerized, Mr. Kozinn describes how the four musicians first performed Haydn and Debussy before performing their own arrangement of the music from the movie “Pulp Fiction”, improvising to Chick Corea’s “Spain”, and finally closing with an encore in which the quartet unveils the vocal talents of an excellent a capella quartet.
There is no doubt: These four French musicians have class and are perhaps the most creative ensemble on the international chamber music scene today. No other quartet moves with such ease and enthusiasm between different styles.
Rather unusual in today’s world of chamber music, the Quatuor Ebène’s stylistic acrobatics may at first meet defiant ears. Defiant, perhaps, because of the general misuse of the term "crossover", which so often serves to cover mediocrity and redundancy. And yet, with the Ebènes, whenever they create a new work, it is always with taste and integrity.
Nevertheless, the quartet’s traditional repertoire does not suffer in any way from its love of Jazz. On the contrary, the Ebènes’ tendency to delve into the “other side” of music inspires their work in untangling and giving new life to classical works.
