The drawings, artworks, of Kristian Jones are so simple, but each one tells a whole story. A child with some objects, you can fill in a personal background of the image and of the person. And sometimes there's an alienating touch, with a floating ball or a little spooky figure... it exudes a tranquility that just makes keep on watching.
VPL started with a simple concept of underwear that, instead is being hidden, becomes a visible layer. Very interesting background (read it here) .
I especially like the geometric forms which are used in the outerunderwear. And also the pastel colours..
But I have my doubts with the support of the bra ..., anyone experienced it :)?
Besides the lingerie they have a great online shop with nice dresses, other clothing and shoes...
Susan Dwyer of 'up in the air somewhere' creates some of the most simple and attractive ceramics. These vases and vessels and cups and bowls and ... based on indurstrial buildings and are made without a mold which makes them even more special and unique.
She also makes objects and you never would have guessed it was
out of paper..
The most beautiful maps and map inspired items in the world! Some made the map a more esthetic than practical object and the others created something starting from the esthetics of a map.
Conclusion maps are always beautiful :)
What's not to love in the collections of Jaclyn Mayer, jewellery designer for her brand Orly Genger. It made me think of constructions of insects (like a caddisfly, it builds a house of little stones in the water, with some home-made silicones :)). Or a cocoon, well packed in rope ...
also nice : art in collaboration with caddisflies from Hubert Duprat
Neon letters who once made whole words or sentences in big cities are reduced (or reused) into singular lighting pieces. So, give me a C from Finnish brand Character and also from my surname. I also like the form of a small 'a' or a capital R..
Ok, summer is over and I also think the aftershock of hotness will end soon. I took a break, no excuse for that but the same as always : I've been busy.
I started this blog almost a year ago with the video of Kanye West which he made in Prague for his latest album. As you may know but probably not : I'm a big fan of Kanye!
I believe in his talent :) but this wasn't expected...
Change of craft : A FASHION SHOW in Paris... who had this seen coming? And if you ask me, I think he did very very well...
I'm in love with a magazine (with different ones actually), but this one really charmed me : Apartamento. (and I believe I'm not the only one) Common stories of creative and interesting people about there work and were they live. I first met with issue 6 a couple of weeks ago, and I'm still not finished reading it. It's perfect for a (train) journey. I recently bought number 7 and I really look forward to read it... I can only recommend!
Berlin was great! A lot of Frühstück and hanging around... But
do you know the scandinavian Henrik Vibskov? I have the feeling he's not a complete stranger ;). He does many different jobs at once but all with great style. Art projects next to a clothing line and also some graphic prints. I think he's my newborn heroe..
Very interesting multi artist (movie, photography, prints, writing, ...) with a noble background and also l'enfant terrible of the Swedish art scene : Carl Johan de Geer.
He recently designed notebooks with patterns for Pocket Shop. My knowledge of previous periods and subcultures is not very great, but it reminds me of the Sex Pistols and the punk scene...
I tried a new way of showing different things in one post => collages. What do you think?
I love the sneakers of Russy Valenki, the beautiful scarfs of 1984 and Hugo&Marie.
And these photographs of Aaron Ruell and Erik Almas fit in the theme.
Maison Sauvage, I didn't find a lot of information on their website. It's a German ceramic studio (what a shame they chose a french name, I like the german language so much :)) established by Nicole Mueller.
But I don't need more information if you can see these beautiful ceramic forms. Theirs already too much blablablablalallalblaabla....
My post aren't as frequence anymore. I'm doing, next to my job, an internship at a magazine, so there's less time to look for interesting stuff and also less time to prepare new posts.
But then there are 2 posts almost at the same time (and almost about the same topic). I hope you like his work as much as I do.
I saw Bruno Munari in a catalogue of an auction house (pba). I especially loved the childrens book drawings he made, so I wanted to share these too. (I couldn't find them on the internet, so I photographed them. I hope I won't break laws by doing this, please warn me if I do!)
I just discovered the work of Bruno Munari (never too late to learn), what an immense archive and diversity of work and almost every single piece would fit in my living room, bedroom or ... everywhere. I think it's possible to make a blog only about his work. I'm just totally excited :).
Please share my feelings ....
I do a lot of comparing. Music, illustrations, art, ...
When I see something that does remind me of something I saw before, I link it (very normal).
It's not that I find one better than the other, or it isn't about like-minded artists who obtain to the same result (sometimes it can be).
I just like to compare and to put the images next to each other...
Following the ChainReaction and with some similarities to celebrities who wear the same clothes, the comparing of visual likewise art.
