The young girl stares down the famous Wall Street charging bull in an act of defiance. It’s intended to highlight the gender disparity of senior level roles at US financial firms; 85….
Imagine being able to build around corners, on curved surfaces, or even onto the sides of that sailing ship you’ve just spent hours building. You forgot to engineer a point of attachment for that sweet dinosaur-smashing cannon? No problem. Snip a length of Nimuno Loops, stick it on the hull, mount your cannon and be on yarr….
It’s surprising to us that in this day and age we still need to have an ‘official’ day to recognise and champion women and women’s rights. Nevertheless, International Women’s Day has come and gone for another year and gave us the opportunity to reflect upon how women have changed the world we live in. Throughout history, many….
Last week in an unidentified and soon-to-be-demolished building in Melbourne, Australia, a secret street art exhibition titled “The Alpha Project” was held by renowned street artist RONE to a lucky few.

When walking through our local supermarket, we often stop and think “I wonder how food got invented?” We’re like: who thought about extracting the seeds from coffee fruit, dry it, toast it, ground it, and then make delicious coffee out of it? That’s crazy. And delicious. Now you’re thinking about that, have you ever wondered what your fav fruit….
New Zealand artist and illustrator Toby Morris has created a comic strip which can teach us an important lesson: that not everyone has the same opportunities in life. This is a short story about two people born into completely different families, whose members play contrasting roles in their children’s lives. We think it’s well worth reading.

In this moving photos series, we have compiled a list of….

There is no doubt that the naked body is a perfect work of art on it’s own, but these artists have taken it one step further and turned the human form into an actual canvas! The natural shapes and curves of the human body served….
