In the realm of dreams… by Delvaux

Delvaux and René Magritte, a surreal combination, but a match made in heaven nonetheless. You might have been dreaming about the Brillant L’Humour, quoting “Ceci n’est pas un Delvaux”, for a while now, just like me. It’s like the best of Belgian art and craftsmanship rolled into one. My absolute number one bag. Something to… More

Tate Shots: Agnes Martin

“From music people accept pure emotion, but from art they demand explanation” Let us introduce you to Agnes Martin.

See what you want to see, love what you want to love. Making controlled decisions, in a spontaneous way. That’s also how I like… More

That’s about as understated as can be. I’ll tell you a little more about what is probably the most beautiful fashion expo I’ve ever seen. “I… More

Flower art by Makoto Azuma

“Creating a flower bouquet is first and foremost an extremely egoistic act. Only flowers that have grown in the wild are beautiful enough; for all that – cut from their roots, their branches removed – they are freely bound with completely different specimens. I have spent more than fifteen years dedicating each day to this… More

John Kacere

Some people have a passion in life. And so does the first artist we’d like to introduce you to over here on Yayzine. John Kacere was a man with an eye for “the female landscape” as we like to call it. The man only painted navels, hips, buts, knickers and other bits of lingerie uninterrupted… More
