Paper Paintings by Geoff Mcfetridge04. June 2014
Saw a couple of paintings by LA based artist Geoff Mcfetridge on Pinterest today and went on a search for more.

Tomás Alonso26. May 2014
These furniture designs are by Spanish designer Tomás Alonso. I was taking a wonder through his site today and landed up finding quite a few pieces which I thought were pretty damn cool. His asthetic is clean and simple from the actual design, to the materials he uses to his colour palette. I really think he has some amazing work in his portfolio.
- His method, which might be described as “à la Castiglioni” due to its ideological simplicity, can be summed up as an intelligent morphological synthesis of a technicist type, which focuses on functionality as an absolute value and turns it into an idea for products which are quick and easily understandable into their constitutive elements. The very simple aesthetic qualities of his objects reveal the expressive potential of each specific material, which is also his main source of inspiration, conveying an expressive immediacy which makes his products universal and transgenerational. He uses both wood and metal in a sober, soft and practical manner, skilfully inverting the usual way in which these two materials are perceived: wood is reduced to very slender, squared, vectorial sticks, iron is curved, warm and coloured.
The Wonders of the Universe Vol. 1 – exhibition06. May 2014
The Wonders of the Universe Vol. 1 exhibition, curated by Soft Serve is up at Wolves for the rest of the month. The work is very diverse and very cool, so I thought I would do another post to show you a few more examples of what these talented artists have come up with. There are 21 posters on display and they range from R500 to R2500, but the majority are R500 – R750. There are a limited run of 5 per print, so if you see something you like I suggest you snap it up, a couple have already sold out.
Sorrento beach house23. April 2014
This beautiful, light and bright space is a weekend retreat that belongs to Melbourne interior architect and designer Shareen Joel. I love everything about it, the openness created by the natural light and use of white and timbre floors and then the darker spaces too, like the bathroom and outside shower. It’s situated near the beach and I can only imagine that it’s surroundings are as beautiful as this little holiday nook.
A drawing a day by Daniel Horowitz13. March 2014
These crazy illustrations are by Daniel Horowitz and I think they are beyond cool. I can’t pick a favourite because I like them all and I think he has a damn interesting style. He creates one a day, which means that the world is going to have loads of these pieces out there – hells yes!
- The artist describes that he feels overwhelmed by the never-ending tide of media and information we are inundated by. As a consequence, he took the challenge to produce a finished work every day in order to produce as fast as we consume. His works is a graphic intervention into found media and imagery, sourced from vintage lifestyle advertising, history books, and encyclopedias.
