Wooden Sculptures Express Vulnerability Through Holes by Paul Kaptein

Australian-based artist Paul Kaptein explores the notion of “now” in his wooden sculptures. While beautifully crafted, each piece has something strange about it. Notches and rectangular holes are cut into the figures and show that there’s emptiness to his subjects. His work is metaphor for the present and the uncertainty that goes with it.

Mexican artist and writer Tony Sandoval’s award-winning Doomboy is getting an English language release this September, thanks to publishers Magnetic Press, and it looks and sounds amazing: a young teenage boy, a bit of a loner in possession of a love of metal music and a very active imagination, is left bereft when his girlfriend dies suddenly. As a means of coping, he begins to broadcast songs to her beyond the grave, playing his heart out on his guitar, under the nom de plume ‘Doomboy.’ Unbeknowst to him, however, the broadcasts are being picked up all across town… and beyond, with the legend of Doomboy spreading like quickfire, and turning his simple life upside down.

So glad this is getting translated in English and released as a hardcover!!
