Another Danish gem! These posters by designer Lene Nørgaard are a minimal-interior-design-lover’s dream. They would look smashing against a bare white wall or with some plywood to make the colours and textures pop even more.

BTW, as you are reading this post today I am probably hiking down the Grand Canyon, so let’s just hope I make it back to Canada in one piece so I can purchase some of these awesome posters. If you want to get some too, you can buy them over here.

Well fellas, I’m cyber signing off for the weekend. I’ll see you here on Monday ok. Enjoy the weekend!

Oh hey, is this a new type of cubism? Perhaps coolism?

These portraits by Canadian artist Erik Olson (yaaas, represent!) give me feelings. I love how each brush stroke has so much texture, it’s almost like icing, but in the shape of art.

His new portraits series is packed with bright hues and multidimensional subjects. They kinda remind me of those weaved collages that have been recently featured in several fashion magazines (you know which ones I’m talking about?).

Portraits, texture, and lots of colour. I am definitely gonna keep an eye on this guy.

Icelandic creative agency Børk just came up with the coolest idea to stay warm and in style. This prototype series of designer blankets are on their way to be available for sale, yes! You can own one of these beauties.

Each blanket was created by a different designer and the materials used to construct them are tough as an Icelandic volcano and can withstand indoor and outdoor adventures (reading on the couch with one of these blankies qualifies as an adventure).

If you want to get on the list to be the first to know when these bad boys become available, sign up for their mailing list.

Spring has sprung and so has the art!…and the allergies! *sneezes*. At least we have some beautiful paintings to look at while we stuff kleenex up our nose so it stops leaking (gross).

These spring-worthy paintings are the work of Marta Marzal, an artist whose portfolio seems to transition the same way seasons do, from dark moody still life, to colourful floral portraits. Seriously, I cannot be more excited about the sun coming out! The warmth in the air will definitely bring lots of good vibes for art and life in general.

Is it too early to start bathing suit shopping??! *pointy nipples from cold*

It’s been a while that I haven’t featured a fashion-meets-mixed-media post. I’m glad I found this one while perusing around the interwebs. Don’t you love the work of Ernesto Artillo? It’s sassy!

His runway gallery is a visual feast for all of you lovers of colour, pattern, and avant-garde style, and his work has been featured on several fashion and design magazines, including Elle. He also recently collaborated with fashion label SixLee to create some of the collages featured above.

Check out the rest of his creationsover here.
