Thursday Magazine (Oman)
New Valentines cover Thursday Magazine:
the weekend supplement of the daily newspaper Times of Oman.
Creative director Adonis Durado explains to me: In the Middle Eastern countries like Oman, the weekend holidays fall on Thursday and Friday — not Saturday/Sunday. The magazine is published on Thursday hence its name. The content is of general
interest topics ideal for a weekend read.

WOOD SCULPTURES BY ARON DEMETZ
For years, Aron Demetz (facebook) has been focusing on the human figure, on contemporary characters which appear to be frozen in poses of the antique portraiture or paralysed in bizarre postures. Aron uses traditional woodcarving techniques to convey his preoccupation with humanity’s relationship to nature. In his work he eschews the classical opposition of human and nature, and allows the two to become an inseparable whole, evoking the primordial experience.
