Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Esther Kim

 photo MOTO-JACKET-GIF-copy.gif

Esther Kim‘s work bridges the gap between our two favorite things: fashion and art. Growing up between the US and Tokyo, her illustration aesthetic is a unique combination of feminine, stylish, and playful. Clearly, we’re hooked. We sat down with the literary loving artist in an attempt to pick her crazy-creative brain. Oh, and keep an eye out for an upcoming Lessons From The Pros featuring Esther’s work!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: André Saraiva – Dream Concerts


André Saraiva— aka Monsieur A—is a French street artist best known these days for throwing the wildest parties at his nightclub Le Baron. When he’s not turning away supermodels, Saraiva wanders the world showing (and spray painting) his art. Currently on view at MOCA through October 7th, “André Saraiva: Dream Concerts” is a series of romantic, lyrical paintings and prints that use the language of concert posters to plant an impossible dream in the mind of the viewer. Saraiva’s *Dream Concerts* series is also on view at Gallery Steinsland Berliner in Stockholm, and later this year the show will travel to Maison Kitsuné in Tokyo. I spoke with André about the importance of imagination, urbanism and having fun.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Honey I’m Home


Welcome to Honey’s world, where playing with your food is highly encouraged, emphemerality is priceless, and anything can be a canvas. We went ape over Honey’s awesome tattooed fruit  when we first saw it in Dossier Journal, and discovered that bananas were just the tip of the icebox when it comes to her food/art intersection. One of the coolest things about her work is that none of it is made to last, but Honey doesn’t seem to care. “ I am one of those people who are totally and utterly enamored with process,” she says. “The end product is just a bonus.”

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Photographer Felisha Tolentino

Felisha Portrait

As soon as we met photographer Felisha Tolentino, we instantly started putting her to work (like here, and here). Felisha is quite the accomplished 20-something, and though she may be young, she totally gets around (with her camera, that is). She’s shot bands like Green Day and Sandy Pussy, worked a lot with The Cobrasnake, and also knows her way around a fashion shoot—and she’s still in college! Since you’re going to be seeing a lot more of Felisha’s work in the near future, we caught up with her recently to talk embarrassing stories, future plans and spirit animals.

Monday, July 8, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Snap-Happy with Fashion Photog Rob Oades

 Scan 31

If there’s one thing we love around here—oh, besides candy and shoes and stickers—it’s models. Specifically off-duty ones. So, when we stumbled across fashion photographer Rob Oades’ side project of candid model Polaroids, our hearts went boom.  The photos, lovingly or jokingly scribbled-upon by each of the girls, are cute, fun and ultimately super revelatory of each of their personalities. We caught up with Oades to talk personal connections, destroying an image, and what the f@$% to do with all these photos!
