What happens when two baroque cellists perform a cover of “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC? They shred. Literally. Keep an eye on their bows as the piece progresses.

This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.

What made you prioritise using an iPhone to capture images, rather than a camera?

The biggest and most obvious reason for choosing to use an iPhone instead of a dedicated DSLR, for instance, is that it’s simply all I own. My uncle so graciously gave me his old Canon 20D but it needs some work (and some investment in CF cards, batteries and such) so I’ve stuck with my trusty iPhone 4S.

I started out taking photos with my iPhone 4 a few years back but once I got my 4S, it became pretty clear I could get away with it, at least for the time being, until I could invest in a “proper” camera. Another reason for prioritising the iPhone over a dedicated camera is the whole sharing aspect. I can’t help but enjoy the convenience of having my photos immediately available for editing and sharing.

More paintings about poets and food
 Djordje Ozbolt

Hauser & Wirth Gallery, 32 East 69th St., NYC

new paintings, sculptures, and drawings by Belgrade-born, London-based artist Djordje Ozbolt. Collapsing the narratives of his paintings and sculptures into solitary images, Ozbolt creates mysterious and often macabre imagery that persistently conflates traditional European genres – of portraiture, still life, landscape, and history painting – with motifs sourced from Christianity, African and Asian art. - thru Feb 21
