24

Hey everyone,
I am alive and well, very alive. I am now 24, since yesterday. And Mr M is now 24 too, since the day before yesterday (I love having our birthdays together).
We had a Wes Anderson themed party at out micro flat and it was amazing to see out friends with fake mustaches, bathroom robes and scuba goggles (we don't have pics yet).
Besides that, the internship work and the MA at the Reina Sofia Museum are slowly increasing the pressure. That's without counting life, which keeps on happening. What I'm trying to say is: I am well but busy beyond myself. I guess I will eventually be able to balance virtual and real life, but so far I just had to let the virtual one go a little.
Needless to say, I miss the blogosphere a lot.

Kehinde Wiley






You know I'm a sucker for patterns.
You know I like the world bold and colorful.
Then imagine my reaction in discovering Kehinde Wiley's art.
I know, I felt I died and went to heaven too.

Boots, cellotape and tights



Or a misleading title for two things I found at my sister's blog, Aha!
The video uses some images I had thought of for a project on changing your own appearance with daily objects. And was really glad to see how it looked! And the bike, well, the bike just had to be passed on.
Happy Sunday!

Concrete floor tiles




So, so beautiful and, bizarrely, kind of "antique". Reminds me of places I've never been to but always wanted to go to.

Via The Best Part.

Beautiful Kenzo




Via.


Via.

Oogy


or a tale of a survivor of cruelty.
One day we humans will look behind and not understand how we treated animals.
Still a long way to go.
Via a Bitt of Raw.

Folkmother




You've probably seen these, but they are too good not to be repeated endlessly.
Via My Love for you is a Stampede of Horses.

Ceramic seeds




Oh yes, yes they are. Seriously, I mean it.

You can check them out at the Tate Modern.

Via Dezeen.

Bizarre, enchanting, magical, ans strategic stereortype usage.

The Duchess of Malfi


By Johnny Kelly, the guy who did the Procrastination animated video.

At Mr M's


Even though we do live together (and happily!), each of us has a blog and they are both really, really different. Nonetheless, today my work on Mary Sibande (pictured) is lovingly chilling at Mr M's.

PS: This might ring a bell, as it's been published in Hand/Eye too! And if you want to read the proper art theorist, long and hard version, you can pop in here.

Neon nature

Magnolias and coral



This is a cross-stitch pattern from 1854 from a French magazin, Magasin des Demoiselles. I found it at the antique book fair and thought it was too beautiful to pass on it.

Scarf me up











Click on image to see where they come from...
(I would so love the one with a patchwork of asian textiles and the massive cotton ones at the top)

Domenico Gnoli




An Italian painter that painted hair...
I found this artist browsing through old catalogues in a book fair that's now up in Madrid.
Reminds me of Botero a bit, but with a mad attention to detail.
Good info in Spanish here.
