The life and work of the Groninger artist H.N.Werkman (1882-1945) is incredibly inspiring, even seventy years after his death.
Werkman gave his own connotation to concepts such as ‘abstract’ and ‘figurative’. A book and the exhibition in the Groninger Museum form part of a larger cultural project called 'Werkman 2015'. Here's the programme. The Werkmanjaar (Werkman Year) is a joint initiative of the Werkman Foundation 2015 and the Groninger Museum.

While artists like Maurizio Cattelan are treating nazism with subtle irony, these advertising billboards send to me from Thailand are less subtle and seemingly ignorant of modern history.

Big Yellow Duck

On 3 June, Hong Kong designer Michael Miller Yu posted a pic on his Facebook page. In a clever montage of the iconic Tank Man photo he swapped the tanks for rubber ducks, and replaced, in his own words, “violence with tenderness”. Chinese netizens immediately reposted it on Weibo until the name 'big yellow duck' was blocked. Here the reaction of artist Florentijn Hofman.

Cy Twombly

Cy Twombly (April 25, 1928-July 5, 2011) was one of America's most important and influential painters of his time. Out of step with the American post-war art movements, his large-scale calligraphic paintings blur the line between drawing and painting. He is said to have influenced younger artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Francesco Clemente, and Julian Schnabel.
