LOVE.  He is a visual artist whose sensual series entitled Blindness showcases a provocative image of a female depicted by society unable to look beyond the surface of appearance caused by consumption and technology.  His series explores the contemporary standards of beauty and iconography. Here is a glimpse…

I absolutely love Portrait Design and I especially love when it’s an iconic figure expressed in a modern and pop fashion.  Jordan Andrew Carter is a London-based artist and Illustrator.  He explains that he takes a tactile approach to his work with the juxtaposition of intricate hand drawn pencil work against mixed graphic media. His work is so amazing and eye-catching.  The colors are so fresh and magnificent. I would hang any of his portraits in my home. Here is a glimpse of his work…

Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style

Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent {August 1, 1936 – June 1, 2008}

Tonight was all about YSL fashion.  The Seattle Art Museum presents Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, showcasing highlights from the legendary designer’s 44-year career. Drawn from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition features new acquisitions by the Foundation that have never been shown publicly before. My friend {Maggie} and I had a fashion date and really enjoyed the work of YSL – master couturier and fashion pioneer.  The exhibit features over 100 couture pieces. It’s quite spectacular. Here is a glimpse…

Fruity Spring

Oh hello there Spring…

Hello Spring

Spring has officially arrived. I’m excited to incorporate more color into my dark wardrobe of black on black. I love spring colors – so soft with the array of fresh pastels. I came across these fruit spring art that I completely adored. For those that know me, I do have globophobia, but these actually don’t bother me. I love them – they are so fruity fresh. Here is a glimpse…

the gallery wall

gallery wall

I’ve been secretly pinning gallery wall inspiration. Lately, I’ve been revamping my apartment and slowly creating a gallery art wall above my bed. Honestly, curating is a little tricky because you are limited with space and images and you have to create a hierarchy in terms of various sizes. What I’m finding is – display what I love and mix it up. When I’m finished, I’ll share my own little art gallery with you. Until then, here is glimpse of some images I pinned to my “art gallery wall” board…

skulls + flowers

skull art

The day after Halloween is known as the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos in Spanish. This is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the blurred boundaries between life and death.  The tradition is that men, women and children honor their deceased loved ones by participating in a joyous festival. I’m so inspired by the artwork of this tradition. As inspiration, today is all about beautiful skulls + flowers. Here is a glimpse…

Fulvio Obregon

Colombian graphic artist Fulvio Obregón is drawing a connection between the past and present. You may have seen this on social media recently.  In a collection titled “Me and My Other Me” {“Yo & Mi Otro Yo” | Spanish} his illustrations feature famous celebrities in both their “Old look” posing with their “Young self”. Notice the detail in the t-shirts they wear highlighting or mocking their life’s achievements. Love the look of these illustrations. My only question is….where are they women? Rumor is that an ad of a woman next to her younger self was the inspiration for this project. Here is a glimpse of the collection…
