MUST KNOW: Covent Garden's huge-balloon filled cloud

French artist Charles Pétillon is synonymous with his usage of white balloons, adding them to cars, golf courses and two-story houses for a humorous take on the mundane. Now, he’s installing his largest ballon-filled exhibition to date at London's historic Covent Garden, joining an impressive roster of past artists including Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Banksy. Titled “Heartbeat,” the public artwork will feature a massive 54-meter-long cloud that’s made from 100,000 of his signature white balloons, and will pulsate with light, mimicking a beating heart. It will be on display for one month, beginning from the 27th of August.

MUST SEE: Dismaland – a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism

Welcome to Dismaland: A First Look at Banksy’s New Art Exhibition Housed Inside a Dystopian Theme Park.

Are you looking for an alternative to the sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out? Or just somewhere a lot cheaper?Then this is the place for you: DISMALAND.

Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus…

The event has all the hallmark details of a traditional Banksy event, from its initial shroud of secrecy to artistic themes of apocalypse, anti-consumerism, and pointed social critiques on celebrity culture, immigration, and law enforcement. However, there’s one major deviation: the bulk of the artwork packed into three main interior galleries was created by dozens of other artists.

Open every day from 22nd August – 27th September 2015. FOR FIVE WEEK ONLY.

11am – 11pm. Admission £3, free for the under 5’s.

MUST HAVE: Red wine labels inspired by famous artists by Gregoriodesign

Gregoriodesign presents on his website a line of red wine bottles with labels that art lovers just can't miss.

His aim is to marry a high quality wine with a label that can catch the buyer's eye. Which better occasion to draw from the world of art, and join each type of wine with a great painter?

 

These labels represent the visuals styles of Jackson Pollock, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Wassily Kandinsky. They pay homage to these great masters.  Each of these artists is characterized by a very special style, and, now, to a great wine

This truly is art to be savoured.
