1341741260206333 Upside Down Faces   Literally

Have you ever looked at a photograph and without quite realizing what it is you just know that there is something that is not quite right? You don’t know what, but there’s something a little off. Sort of like looking at a picture of an alien who is trying to impersonate a human being, all the right features are there, but there’s an intangible element that makes you question what you are looking at. I bet you’ve seen enough SciFi movies to know the feeling, right? [ Continue Reading ]

surealism paintings by vladimir kush 5 600x442 542x400 A Metaphorical Voyage

When I was looking at my leads this morning I choose to write about Vladimir Kush, because I like his name. It’s a great name, especially Kush. I was as happy as a banana swinging in a hammock of it’s own skin while repeating it over and over again this morning: Kush. Say it, it’s fun and like any word that you repeat over and over again it starts to sound like something out of this world, which is apropos when you consider what kind of artist Vladimir Kush is: a surrealist or better yet, a metaphorical realist, a monicker that he prefers.

dayofthedead final 353x400 Ronald Kurniawan: Where the Sublime Meets the Contemporary

Ronald Kurniawan graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, he currently resides in Los Angeles. Inspired by ideograms, syllables, letterforms, beasts, and heroic landscapes, he creates imagery in which the wilderness and civilization merge. A place where the sublime can coexist with the nuclear age. This juxtaposition of imagery also lends itself to Kurniawan’s creative process, where he uses the simple to express the complex and vice-versa. [ Continue Reading ]

Lisa Shahno: Squaring the Square

001 Lisa Shahno: Squaring the SquareAlright, so I’m not a huge fan of Lisa Shahno’s latest design collection. I would never wear something like this, but that isn’t always a criteria by which to judge fashion, because there are pieces of clothing that I would never wear in real life and still love, however unpractical they may be. Although, aesthetically this might not be my cup of tea (one of the models looks like she belongs in a futuristic Korean horror movie, which actually, I kind of like), I have to give credit where credit is due, because the design concept behind these pieces is in fact quite interesting.

Introducing OlgaWB

Ah yes, quite a creative user name: my first name and the initials of my two fabulous long-ass last names (thanks Mom, thanks Dad). I was named after a Russian gymnast, but I have no Russian blood coursing through my veins. Although, I really like Tolstoy, does that count for anything? I was born in Montreal and subsequently lived my whole life moving from Montreal to small rural Quebec towns and then back again. Oh, I did live in Ontario for a while where I completed my degree in Drama at Queens University (a degree I have done absolutely nothing with since graduating), so I guess I lied when I said I’d always lived in Quebec.
