10 Artists Share Their Creative Process...
An artist's creative process is one of the most intriguing aspects behind an artwork, as each artist has their own unique way of approaching their art practice. However, where does creativity come from? Whether it's sculpting, drawing, or painting, their creative process can either come spontaneously or can be prepared through initial sketches and drafts. Creativity is subjective, deeply personal, and sometimes difficult to be captured on a consistent basis. Many of them keep their mind artistically stimulated by taking walks, going to museums, or reading!  In this article, The Artling looks at 10 artists breaking down their creative process, and sharing what inspires them!...

10 Artists Who Celebrate Nature Through Their Work...
Nature has always been a great inspiration to artists - from cave drawings of animals, to contemporary artists working today. Artists have depicted nature as a setting to express their inner feelings, forever changing the face of art. As famed impressionist artist Paul Cezanne stated, “Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations. Treat nature in terms of the cylinder, the sphere, the cone, everything in proper perspective.”  The Artling presents 10 contemporary artists using media ranging from photography to graphite pencil, to capture nature and share their connection with the environment!...

12 Glass Artists: Between Tradition & Innovation...
As a decorative art, glassmaking is often overlooked - but it's actually one of the hardest and challenging artistic medium to work with. Characterized by transparency, fragility, and strength, glasswork requires mental and physical strain. Founded in London in 1999, Vessel Gallery aims to be a major destination for all those who appreciate contemporary art-glass sculpture and decorative lighting. From the stunning simplicity of Scandinavian crystal, via flamboyant Italian art glass, to the best of British and International creative talents, all pieces are unique or limited edition and have been carefully edited to show an unparalleled selection of contemporary design and craft. Vessel Gallery also edits its own editions, an on-going programme working with emerging and established studio artists and designers, producing unique collections of exclusive limited edition art works in glass and other materials.

José Parlá on Collective Memory...
Bringing both art to the streets and street art to white cube gallery spaces, artist José Parlá's observations of society and his environment go all the way back to the walls of his childhood, as he appreciated society's efforts to hide deteriorating concrete by plastering fresh coats of paint on top. Actively involved in hip-hop's underground art culture since the age of ten, his practice aims to change the misperception of graffiti and Street Art as vandalism, reinstating how Street Art is the people's Art; an Art that is in tune with the times and a visual representation of the effects of politics on society.  His solo showcase 'Textures of Memory' is his take on society's collective memory of which life and Art seem to dissolve, integrating seamlessly and beautifully within the layers of paint on city walls over time. Parlá's artworks simulate the process of decay through time, resulting in incredible textures on his canvases from the aggressive tearing down of posters and advertisements from walls that leave fragments of paper and adhesive residue to build up along with layers of writings and paint. We spoke with the artist on the occasion of his Hong Kong exhibition to find out more about his inspirations....
