Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.

LAS Film of the Month

Henri Matisse has toppled Picasso from the top of the LAS leaderboard as the most watched film on our site this month. It received over 250 views since the beginning of January but Klimt is creeping up close behind in second place. We find it so interesting to see what our members are watching and which artists appeal the most.

Warhol Cushion Tate Modern
Warhol Cushion

One of the most popular films on our site this year was Warhol's, "Marilyn Diptych" - the wonderful combination of Hollywood glamour and Pop Art tongue-in-cheek humour continues to resonate with people to this day. We just love this colourful cushion, available via the Tate Gift Shop (it's on sale now too!)...

Phaidon Art Books
Cute Kusama

With Yayoi Kusama's long awaited exhibition finally scheduled to take place at Tate Modern in March we just had to bring your attention to this delightful children's book by Phaidon. "Yayoi Kusama Covered Everything in Dots and Wasn't Sorry" is a perfect introduction for children to this icon of Contemporary Art.

Our Instagram Account of the Month is...

Rob Biddulph

Many parents are looking for ideas to keep their children entertained during this time at home - we have found author and illustrator, Rob Biddulph's online drawing lessons, Draw with Rob, a real life-line. He posts fun and engaging videos twice a week teaching kids how to draw everything from steam trains and penguins, to unicorns and dinosaurs. If you share your little Picasso's work he will try to post them in a collage on his page.

Light Up Your Life

We love a museum gift shop and Tate Modern has one of the best. This Olafur Eliasson Little Sun Lamp is solar powered and gives 5 hours of light when fully charged. The best thing about it though is that through buying it, you help to make it available to those who do not have affordable access to electricity. A wonderful iniative set up by artist Eliasson to help communities living off-grid.
