Philippe Starck and Moustache Present M.A.S.S. Electric Bikes
French designer Philippe Starck and bike manufacturer Moustache present M.A.S.S. – mud, asphalt, sand, snow – a collection of four electric two-wheelers, each designed with specific technological modifications to handle their respective terrains. Concentrating on providing the rider with the best experience possible, ‘mud’ encompasses an all-terrain approach while ‘asphalt’ is designed for fast and urban use. Finishing off the collection is ‘sand,’ which explores infinite spaces along the water, and ‘snow,’ a sturdier body able to tackle colder climates and territory. M.A.S.S. is set to debut at EuroBike 2014, alongside a line of tailor-made accessories including glasses, gloves and backpacks.

AGO To Present Major Retrospective of NYC Art-world Legend Jean-Michel Basquiat
Famous by age 20 for his groundbreaking drawings and paintings, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) took the cultural hotbed of the New York art world by storm in the early 1980s. Basquiat gained international recognition by creating powerful and expressive works that confronted issues of racism, politics and social hypocrisy. Although his career was cut short by his untimely death at age 27, his works remain hugely influential. Opening Feb. 7, 2015, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Basquiat marks the first-ever major retrospective of the artist’s work in Canada and will feature more than 140 large-scale paintings and drawings from private collections and public museums across Europe and North America.
