DANIEL HOROWITZ, ARTIST OF THE INVISIBLE DOG

Daniel Horowitz is an award-winning illustrator and art director. Working primarily as a digital artist over the last decade, one day Daniel Horowitz considered what might happen if he were to pull out a blank page and begin to draw.

I mean, you could think that since everyone has some experience of it, and since everyone wants it in some form or another, we would be better at understanding the whole thing...

Signs of Inflation - Opening March 30

Inflation has been the “friend” of all major wars and crises throughout the 20th century, from 1920s’ Germany to the disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. But inflation does not belong only to modern history. It occurs whenever a medium of payment becomes too abundant.
