SERGE MENDZHIYSKOGO

serge mendzhiyskogo

Ever since my first kaleidescope I’ve appreciated the beauty of distortion. And it’s Serge Mendezhiyskogo’s subtle distortion that makes his art so beautiful. Part pixelated dream world and part post card, his art re-imagines the traditional travel poster. We’d love to have a few of these hanging at the studio. View more examples of his work below.

MARCIA HOWARD

New York City has beautiful parks – big and small. Of course there’s Central Park and other tourist hangouts, but I especially like the smaller ones where new-families go. Their Sunday morning sounds put the upcoming week in perspective. I’m not sure what it is, but there’s an inviting sense of hope in the air. You hear it in the kids playing. You see it in the parents watching. And most of all you feel things slow down as you notice other people taking a second to enjoy the moment. That’s where we met Marcia Howard – an aspiring book store owner and resident of Brooklyn. Marcia has a nice disposition so it was easy to strike up a conversation about travel, her favorite cities and what New York means to her…

AMSTERDAM STREETS

amsterdam

The last time I visited Amsterdam I fell in love with the city. It helps I have friends there, but its quiet energy will capture the heart of the biggest skeptic. The canals, the architecture, the people – it all got me. Many times I’ve tried to explain what makes Amsterdam so special, but my words fall short of what I felt when I visited. Then, late the other night my friend Nalden emailed me an amazing gallery of photos. Each picture nails it. Pim Hendrikson’s photography evokes the subtle unexplainable spirit that lives in Amsterdam. If you have the opportunity to go, I definitely recommend it. Click read more to view a sampling.

FLOATING WORLD COMICS

portland

On a trip to Portland I stopped by Floating World Comics – the city’s premiere comic book store. Whether you’re a fan, collector or someone searching for a little inspiration, you have to stop by and check them out. And, while I’m sure “Comic Book Store” is a badge they wear with pride, when I visited I got a sense the shop represents way more. On this day I watched people queue up outside and wait patiently for the store owner, Jason Leivian to open up. Luckily, I snuck in early to watch Jason’s pre-open routine. He’s a hurricane of energy and knows exactly what he’s doing. After everything was arranged he spared a moment to discuss with me how it all started and what makes Floating World special.

PEOPLE AND PLACES

jasper james

At the studio we keep a long file of photographers and their work. A simple image can urge us to book a flight. So when we came across the work of Jasper James, he was quickly added to the file. His work is incredible. We appreciate his humble style that captures people in an artful yet relaxed state. He relays a compelling story of everyday life all around the world.

After viewing his collections, People and Places 2 stood out as the most memorable series. By using a mix of silhouettes and Beijing’s panoramic city-scapes, he creates an artful story of the metropolis and its visitors. Check it out. We have a few samples posted below for your viewing pleasure.

BARRY MCGEE IN THREE

We’ve been following the artwork of Barry McGee for quite some time. Over the years he’s become a favorite of ours and we’re really impressed with his latest project (pictured above) for the Oakland Museum of California. They released a fantastic video chronicling his installation, which also provides a little background on the thought process behind it. Click Read More to watch the video.
