Take a look at Damien Hirst exhibition currently displayed at Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, Norway. In a spectacular glass and wood building designed by Italian architect Renzo Piani by Oslo port, you will find main outstanding artworks from Bristol born artist Damien Hirst.
This exhibition definitely worth a visit and features the well renowned For The Love of God, a sparkling skull decorated with hundreds of precious diamonds.

A new book released by Laurence King Publishing. Ways Of Looking – How To Experience Contemporary Art by Ossian Ward offers a vademecum for those who are keen on art and those who are not trained in art history.
Do you have issues in tackling the jungle of the often quirky and provocative contemporary art? The former Art Review and Time out Editor has got a six step programme for understanding based on the tabula rasa – a clean slate and a fresh mind. Employing the Tabula Rasa methodology means clean up your mind form previous experiences and approaching beauty (a painting, a sculpture or whatever multimedia installation) with baby’s eyes.
Ossian Ward is Head of Content at the Lisson Gallery and a writer on contemporary art. He was previously chief art critic and visual arts editor at Time Out London and before that served as editor at Art Review.

A SPRINKLE OF STARDUST’ AT THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY
A metaphorical journey into the 60s’ ‘Swinging London‘ and beyond: this is the main essence of Bailey ‘s Stardust, which opened last February at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Nearly three hundred portraits selected by David Bailey and reproduced in black and white on the occasion of the exhibition.
Actors, fashion icons, models, designers, artists, filmmakers in silver gelatin print with a distinctive and flamboyant vintage touch, (Mike Jagger, Kate Moss, Damon Albarn and Francis Bacon).
The main theme of the exhibition is ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust’, the endless life and death’s dualism. Bailey ‘s Stardust epitomises the sparkling life of the showbiz and has been drawing a wide audience made up of neophytes, professional photographers and fashion lovers. Peculiar.

I have gone to East London to find out the coolest area among:
- Brick Lane
The evaluation criteria were:
- Night Life
- Art and Photography Exhibitions
I have interviewed 70 Londoners, 35 women and 35 men, from 18 to 35 years old and I have found out that:
1. The most appealing area for night life is Shoreditch. Almost 5 in 10 people interviewed prefer hang out in Shoreditch, while 3 in 10 choose Brick Lane. Only 1 in 10 ‘has fun’ in Hoxton or Dalston.
2. The most beautiful graffiti are in Brick Lane. 47% percent of the voters prefers Brick Lane, while 34% opts for Shoreditch street art graffiti. In fact in this area there plenty of works by famous artists such as Hunto, Paul Don Smith and James Cochran.
3. Because of several art and photography galleries, two areas almost reach the same percentage, 43% (Shoreditch), followed by 40% (Brick Lane).
4. Combining data, I have discovered that the coolest area in terms of night life, graffiti, art and photographs exhibitions is:
4 in 10 Londoners think that it is the winner of the competition!
