Utopian Voices Here and Now : Somerset House
Matthew Stone’s new digital paintings have been developed using new technologies to create virtual sculptures and digitally ‘paint’ their contours before printing on raw linen. The founder of the utopian South London-based art-squat collective !WOWOW!, Stone’s work has long been inspired by the body and its kinaesthetic potential in exploring society and social practice.

McDonald's Unveils Burger-Inspired Art During Its First Facebook Live Video | Adweek
McDonald's hosted its first Facebook Live video today—an art show, The Starving Artist, reminiscent of Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting.
During the hour-long program the fast food giant revealed three oil paintings; "The Beefy Gastronaut" which featured the chain's Quarter Pounder with cheese, the "Burger Brawn," which featured the Big Mac and the "Beefy Peaks."
The point? To celebrate National Hamburger Day. The program was hosted by an improv actor playing a sweater-and-fanny-pack-wearing artist named Bevin, who explained to the roughly 1,000 viewers that he was going to take the burgers from "mouth-worthy to museum-worthy." (The paintings were created by a professional artist Adam Holzrichter.)

Barbican - Imran Qureshi
Barbican has commissioned the award-winning Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi to create a new body of work for The Curve.

For his first major London commission, Qureshi presents Where the Shadows are so Deep, a series of exquisite miniature paintings, drawing upon The Curve as a motif in this tradition. Beginning with gentle scenes of nature, the sequence of works gradually introduces darker elements, subtly implying the uncertainty of what lies around the bend. Hung at varying heights along the dramatic 90-metre span of the space, these delicate, jewel-like paintings lure the visitor in, demanding an altogether different kind of looking.
