This Dandelion, frozen in time, made me look.
Hand printed poster by Anthony Burrill – a daily reminder to stay curious. Framed in Portland in a black matte metal frame.
Here’s an interesting new project by the folks of Krrb: Cheap Art features local classifieds dedicated to buying and selling artwork priced under $1,000. The idea is based off the Bread and Puppet Cheap Art Manifesto. The folks behind Cheap Art believe art should be available to everyone, not just the privileged. The ‘Cheap’ in ‘Cheap Art’ is not meant to degrade the value of art but rather celebrate the everyday consumption of it. They believe walls don’t need to be decorated with mass-produced prints from Ikea, but rather original works created by our neighbors. Check it out: buycheapart.com
Absolutely enamored by Sabine Finkenauer‘s minimalist collages.
Bas van de Poel is the force behind Computer Virus Catalog, an “illustrated guide to to the worst viruses in computer history.”
‘Flying Formation’ is a series of digital photo collages by Shaun Kardinal of birds flying in precise geometric formations.
Chicago based Shiner takes photos off your Instagram feed and puts them into your life. Shiner turn your images into beautiful, ready-to-hang art. Jenn has two examples hanging over her desk. Looks really fantastic.
Julia Rothman pointed me to Santtu Mustonen’s work. Isn’t this stunning?
Created for Lady Gaga, the Volantis is the world’s first flying dress and heralds the beginning of a new era for human flight, says one of its designers Benjamin Males.
It made me laugh.
Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.
Lovely simple geometric forms print by onomatopoeic. I’d hang it in my studio.
Earlier last week I got my hands on Rachel Sussman‘s Oldest Living Things in The World Book. It is absolutely stunning.
Since 2004 Rachel has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science. (In November of 2010 Rachel told her story at CreativeMornings.)
Her book contains 125 photographs, 30 essays on her 30 subjects, original inforgraphics, and contributions by New York Times science columnist Carl Zimmer and world-renowned curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Available on Amazon.
I feel so online print by Jean Jullien. Made me smile.
Fiercely Curious lets you buy local Brooklyn art online. Love this idea. I believe in the buying local, not just when it comes to my veggies.
London-based sculptor and illustrator Camille Barnard created these wooden, hand-carved Pencil Case Items, transforming the seemingly mundane into sculptural objects. Absolutely love this.
(G would approve of the drill)
Sipho Mabona has taken Origami to extremes. He’s folded this life-sized (!) elephant out of one sheet of paper. So much respect.
Citrus Fest by Emily Blincoe. Lovely.
My cloud obsession is not slowing down. How stunning are these handmade porcelain clouds? So much YES!
I need to hang this print by Andrew Neyer above my computer so I remember to drink water throughout the day. Oh, healthy habits…
Gold foil stamp heart poster by Bethany Lesko. Beautiful.
I happend to stumble upon Adam Frank’s Lucid Mirror at NYNOW and it took my breath away. It’s a stunning décor mirror that places luminous 3D sunrays illuminating clouds behind the plane of the reflective surface. Viewers can ‘touch’ the illusion with their reflected image.
The above image doesn’t do it justice. It’s magical. Believe me.
