Artist's wonderland.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Walking into David Altmejd’s studio feels like falling down a rabbit hole into some strange wonderland. Hidden on the top floor of a Long Island City warehouse that’s just one subway stop from Manhattan, the large, bright space is a hub of activity.

Investment opportunities in the world of fine art.

He is an imposing figure, this walking man: fully six feet tall, naked, his stick-thin limbs disproportionately long, his metallic skin clearly showing the rough handiwork of his creator.

A lot has happened to the members of Alabama Shakes since the release of their 2012 debut album, Boys & Girls.

Walking into Max Lamb’s studio in North London, England, the first visible item is a seat hewn from the trunk of a tree. It is classic Lamb: raw, powerful, uncompromising, and yet deceptively simple.
