MWM in Sao Paulo

Matt W. Moore (MWM) recently went to Sao Paulo, Brazil to have a solo show but didn’t bring any art or supplies with him. He scrounged up supplies and made some beautiful work inspired by the colours of the city.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera


It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels).
