Nathan Coley

Various artworks by Glasgow-based, Nathan Coley. Religion, and the idea of home, seem to be themes throughout much of Coley’s work.

  • These are amazing. The first image is definitely my favorite.

    reminds me of stephan sagmeister’s work. the latter ones almost like architectural renditions of it.

  • wow! too bad the words are so sad..

    • yea i would like to do similar things but with positive messages

  • Don’t really see anything wrong with the messages…
    Bet the top one was spot on and the lower one can hardly be proven other wise. I’d love to see one that read “The sun shines in Scotland” with the sun high in the sky in the background. Now that would be a miracle…

  • ^haha

  • talking heads, anyone?

    (last image.)

    • BRIAN

      definitely talking heads, let.s give credit where credit is due…

  • Great work!

  • mischa

    I think it is not about whether the words are right or not. THESE WORDS FORM A statement!
    Capturing a moment – thought with light, colour, shape and a meaning. – Honestly this is great!

    All I can see here is extremly powerful work – I would love us to do some work together.
    I do architecture-interior architecture-design-art

  • when this kiss is over
    it will start again.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
