Eva Eun-Sil Han was born in Korea where she lived for 27 years. When she encountered the collages of Max Ernst did she start to use collage as a means of artistic expression. In her work she combines material from any kind of ready-made mass media, such as newspapers, magazines or old books. Eva Han prefers to use knife and glue rather than working with pixels on a computer screen, because it allows her to touch, feel and smell the different source papers. Especially old paper smells good to her.
The artist collages photographs, her own and others, often drawing and painting onto the paper. Many of them seem purely abstract and in most, the assemblage of images is in such bits and pieces they don’t seem meant to be discerned specifically.
NemO’s is a street artist based in Italy. He works across multiple mediums, including illustration, digital design, spray paint and old newspaper pasted to walls. He is known for his thought-provoking, dark comedy murals inhabited by characteristic human figures.
He paints skeletons as a base of his murals, which are then covered with layers of old newspapers. This newsprint skin erodes and peels off over time, revealing the innards of his creations underneath. In such way, the artist creates evolving and living art pieces, a proof and exploration of the fleeting nature of street art.
Thom Yorke continues his good spirits tour of the world, this time in his homeland of England, but more specifically, London, to hand out copies of Radiohead’s newspaper, The Universal Sigh, at Rough Trade near Brick Lane. The physical copy of The King of Limbs, was released in the UK today, and the US tomorrow. Go look for the newspaper where you can...
AND, to top that off, Radiohead are set to release a 12″ for Record Store Day, which is April 16, which will feature two new songs, “Supercollider” and “The Butcher.”

On the newspaper’s website, “In conjunction with this unbelievable offer, Radiohead have established The Universal Sigh as a website on the internet, where details of your nearest vendor can be found, as well as more informations and a photogallery where we will be posting photos and the lucky owners of the gratis tabloid are invited to post pictures of themselves and their friends reading the newspaper in locations diverse and unusual.

If you are going to be headed to the Over Normal exhibit in San Francisco, starring Stanley Donwood and a sound installation by Donwood and John Matthias, then you are going to get the physical copy of the Over Normal Newspaper, a nice newsprint pamphlet made in conjunction with the FIFTY24SF show.
But if you happen to live in, let us say, Plymouth, England, then you need to go toSlowlyDownward.com and download the PDF so you can experience it like us who sit in the gallery.
