Despite the short month, February 2014 was a big one for Complex Art+Design. We put up even more interviews than last month and covered POW! WOW! Hawaii street art festival in Honolulu with daily recaps, a final gallery of murals, and a Complex TV video. Beyond that, our deputy editor Ross Scarano reviewed Matthew Barney's "River of Fundament film," we got Tyga to tell us he owns a Picasso, and our contributing writer Susan Cheng found 10 Classic Paintings That May Have Inspired Kanye West's Yeezus Tour.
In case you don't follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or even if you just need a recap of the last month in art and design, here's a breakdown of our top pieces in February 2014 plus links we enjoyed around the web.
