These collages have a bit of a fall/winter feel to them, don’t they? And since everyone’s posting “goodbye summer” photos and tweets, I decided to instead do a “welcome fall!” post. There’s no need to be sad for summer’s departure (I’m fucking crushed). Regardless, I am totally bookmarking these images as inspiration for future fall/winter recipes.
Happy Monday! (why, whyyy?!!).
Happy Friday guys! So, by now I’m sure you’ve been to The Jealous Curator, right? It’s pretty much one of the coolest compendiums of contemporary art on the interwebs curated by Danielle Krysa (brilliant editor and all-round lovely lady). Not only does she find rad pieces of art to share with her reader, but she’s also an artist herself! She’s even drawing people’s houses (or cars).
Growth is one of her latest series where she has gone “back to basics, back to making art because it’s fun.” I love the little stacked plants! For some reason the colours and textures seem so cozy to me, like you want to hang them in your kitchen and have them near you while baking some treats. And come on, who can resist a well stacked succulent or cactus? Yup, not us!
Happy weekend friends!
These beautifully styled posters by Danish Graphic Designer Kristina Krogh are going to everyone’s early-christmas wishlist. And by early christmas I mean get them now.
The combination of colours and textures are spot on; cork, marble, wood, brass and a few touches of pastels. These posters would make any room look extremely handsome, so handsome you might have a torrid affair with it. Kristina’s creations capture the best of both worlds: vintage, mid-century inspired style with a modern, graphic touch – one simply cannot resist but to drool all over them. Plus, the way she styled them with all of those amazing little trinkets, my god, love at first sight.
All posters are limited edition and at around US$80, they are quite an affordable option to upgrade the art on your desk or wall. If you want to drool some more, pop by Kristina’s website where you can see the whole collection. WARNING: Your credit card might get manhandled.
Nothing better than a punch of beautiful mixed media to end the week on a happy note. These incredibly colourful creations are the work of Baltimore-based artist Amy Boone-McCreesh, a gal that has a killer way of using bright hues.
“Taking inspiration from celebratory and funerary displays in various cultures, Amy aims to explore decoration and human relationships.”
It’s amazing how something that could be seen as sombre and depressing, can be turned into a cheerful work of art. And just as if these amazing collages on paper aren’t good enough, she has also created a series of 3D pieces that are even more hypnotizing – like a happy pill for your wall.
Don’t wait any longer and head over to Amy’s site to get inspired by her bright portfolio. Trust me, you’ll be hooked (and I bet after you see it you’ll be scheming lots of DIY garlands for the weekend, am I right?).
Have a good one! See you Monday, mmkay?
Julissa Lopez is a Santo Domingo based artist that has recently started an experimental series titled Women Empowerment. This series explores her own vision and thoughts on iconic women and their social influence.
I like Julissa’s colourful style – which I bet is influenced by all the tropical beauty in her country. Her work has a good amount of Kitsch without being too over the top, which is totally trending right now. Glad I discover her art thanks to the magic of tumblr!
