Flower power activate! It’s been some time since I’ve featured crazy colourful mixed media (considering I was obsessed with it last year). I think you were too, right? (we all were!).

These collages couldn’t be found at a better time – right when the late spring/early summer colours start to burst. Ciara Phelan has done a great job at capturing sunshine-drenched moments with her mixed media, especially with all those amazingly tasty fruits.

Some of her collages have been featured in publications like Oprah mag (yes, THE Oprah), so that’s a stamp of approval of the universe (probably the good ol’ G.O.D. pinned it already too).

And of course, the whole collection couldn’t be complete without a majestic pineapple (the one popping out of the pill), so that’s an instant win for me. Go ahead and soak your eyes in more bright collages on Ciara’s site.

Oh Marcela Cardenas, we love this! The hues, the huuuess; blush, mint, violet, and several earthy tones in between – all this plus soft velvety fur and a few drawings on glass. BAM. A visual cocktail to get your weekend started.

I know fur is a bit of a touchy subject for many (I’m with you on that) so we won’t get into a debate of sorts (also, our brains are fried and it’s Friday and we all wanna go home), instead let’s appreciate the beauty and intricate work of this series.

See more of Marcela’s work over here. Once you’re done, you’re free to close your computer and go for a drink :P

Happy weekend señores!

These fantastic collages are the latest work of mixed media artist Jesse Draxler. They are part of an editorial series created for CREEM magazine.

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!

If you want see more of Danielle’s work visit her site In Progress, and while you’re there, pop by her blog too (bring some food cause you’ll be there for dayssss).

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.
