The edges of Vienna are striped with forested roads that canopy villas between the trees. One such 'mini palais' belonged to the famous Austrian architect and urban planner, Otto Wagner. To know Vienna, is to recognize the hand of Otto Wagner virtually everywhere in the city. His own self designed family residence would perhaps have been demolished or forgotten had it not been acquired from certain desertion by the artist Ernst Fuchs in 1972. Now pause, and imagine what would happen if a renowned founder of the Viennese school of Fantastic Realism happened to possess such a historical Jugendstil gem; and then decided to outfit it completely with his own imagination, while still maintaining the original visual emotion of the late 19th century. That is The Ernst Fuchs Museum. Even from the street, beneath its' awning of green, the bombastic entrance demands more than a glance. The interior is no less nor different. (The place is so trippy that even my tripped out kids tripped out in the most beautiful way). It's a haze of opulent romanticism married to parasomnia and aesthetic wonder. Simply put, it's a dream.
One of my favourite places in Stockholm, I always feel very tranquil here. The Forest Cemetary is on the UNESCO´s list of world heritage spots and was designed by two of Swedens more famous architects, Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz.
The Current Gallery is an artist-run gallery and studio space located in downtown Baltimore. Current's a great space for seeing contemporary art from the studios of young Baltimore based artists and likeminded artists from around the world.
This is a home-made oasis for those of us who believe in fairies. The painted alleyway boasts tiny hidden doorways and even provides a generous cup of glitter for true believers to disperse showers of shimmering magic among the fish and flowers.
There isn't the greatest selection of take-away places in Bergen but Ichiban sells super fresh and well prepared sushi. They primarily focus on take-away, though there are a few seats within the premises. Note - closed on sundays.
Netil360 is a great roof terrace bar near London Fields in East London. It is situated on top of an ex-Hackney Council Building. We were one of the first design studios to move into the building while it was still being converted into a creative hub. It is great to see that this place is still vibrant. It definitely has one of the best all around views of East London. I took this picture (facing South) in the summer of 2018. It shows the gasworks near The Oval Space in the mid-ground and the Shard as part of the London skyline.
Heaven in the heart of ugly Vauxhall. This peaceful and enchanting spot used to be squatted and has a very bohemian feel to it. Don't miss the secret garden with mosaics made of cups and plates. The food in the Italian deli is delish, a guy called Richard cooks it.
Spencer Wohlrab is elongate, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes which can be distinguished from a legless lizard by his lack of eyelids and external ears. Like all squamates, Spencer is ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. To accommodate his narrow body, Spencer’s paired organs (such as kidneys) appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung.

Nigel Howlett lives and works in London. He has developed a graphite cartoony style of drawing which references early Disney movies and painters such as the American artist Peter Saul. Howlett depicts hairy characters, acting out scenarios that reflect familiar social anxieties and conditions. Always humorous and sometimes sinister, common themes in the work include our obsession with technology and our relationship with social media.
Nigel also runs a set design practice working with clients which include the BBC, channel 4, Issey Miyake and Nike. In 2015 he co-founded Nan Studios, a Photographic and creative studio in Clapton East London.
