Master of capturing smoke upon a canvas, 2010 Rising Artist Winner Matthew Satz is displaying 23 works of art at a private penthouse in Soho. Private viewings can be made by contacting adriana.randall@KiptonART.com.

work that I have been developing over the last decade. Smoke paintings, strip

intelligent and elegant solutions to challenges posed by a history of painting.- Matthew Satz

|Film Review: The Art of the Steal
The City of Brotherly Love
is a thief according to documentary The
Art of the Steal. There is a distinct indie message with big city
bureaucracy plundering a small town of its soul. The elite of
Philadelphia are portrayed as hatching a plan to move the impressive Barnes art
collection from a small neighboring town to a location that will be (GASP) more
accessible to the public.
