'Martin Vargic's maps of the world look like they belong on parchment, hung on walls of estates that no one can really afford... but there's more to the world than piles of dirt and great swathes of sea water... his cartography creates an indirect commentary on how cultural proximities are every bit as relevant in the digital age as geographical ones' - www.bostonglobe.com

'Weird and wonderful' - www.mirror.co.uk
