Ekaterina Panikanova Paints on Books



Artist Ekaterina Panikanova creates paintings out of old books, and they’re pretty neat. The Russian-born Roman takes objects with existing meaning and translates them into works of art. The results are absolutely gorgeous; I especially like how the different shades and makes of paper add interest and depth to the creations.

A lot of these installations feature cakes, which I’m pretty pleased about. I also like her experiments with Rorschach-like ink blots, and I feel like her black centerfolds are something that Little Goth Girl could have painted.


What do you think? Personally, I’d like to see her try it with Kindles.

The Grammatical Zorro

I walk around work correcting the grammar on the newsletters and also the sign in the rubbish room which read ‘please leave the refuge room as you found it’. Erm, I think you might mean refuse? Trust me, you do not want to be seeking refuge in there; tres smelly. The funny thing is they don’t know who’s been doing it. I feel like Zorro.  A masked heroine here to save you from your grammatical troubles. I would also like to say I don’t ‘deface’ their work as such I just leave post-it notes with friendly tips. It appears to be working.
