BY Sehba Mohammad

In the 18th century, if you told someone a painting of a soup can was a work of art they'd probably burn you at the stake. Yet modern and contemporary art is full of such examples. How did we get here? The process has been a slow and arduous one with each master painter adding some of his wisdom to the great artistic pool, changing the way we think and adding another rung to the ladder (whether we're going up or down is still debatable). The book The… READ MORE

LISTEN: CDQ Rihanna “Bitch Better Have My Money”

BY Cacy Forgenie

Rihanna teased fans last night when she shared snippets of Bitch Better Have My Money, a new single off her forthcoming album.

5 Electrifying Alternatives to Burning Man

Flavorpill Tipsheet: Urban Sphere, Joyce Pensato, Air Max Day

BY Cacy Forgenie

Pop artist Joyce Pensato  takes characters from cartoons and comics (Homer Simpson, Mickey Mouse, Batman) and transforms them into crazy, scary creatures via enamel paint. Early on, her palette was strictly black and white but lately the artist has gone metallic with copper and gold, scaling back on the creep factor. (Ha! Not really).
