[Street Art Sundays] Goin

This work by Goin is spectacularly brilliant. As always, it is socially and politically charged, which puts a smile on my face.

Super Intense Portraits

Sorry, that was the best title that I could come up with.

Hopefully you'll understand after being awestruck by these photos below from Andrey Zharov. There are SO MANY MORE amazing photos on his website, so please click his name to check them out.

He might be my new favourite portrait photographer. Seriously incredible... don't you agree?

And he's Russian. Swoon.

"Birds of a Feather" portraits by Claire Rosen

Claire Rosen's whimsical photography is picture-perfect to me. I really loved these bird portraits because they are so simple of an idea, but were executed so well. It's something I could see myself having done. Beautiful photography, Claire!

Inspirational Bike Path in the Netherlands

This has been going around the inter webs (I'm sorry, I like that word) lately, but it deserves a place on this blog too! It's a gorgeous idea, no?


It is an LED-lighted bike path created by Studio Roosegaarde in the Netherlands. The lights are solar powered and the design firm also used glow-in-the-dark paint to enhance the effects.

SO COOL!!

Going to Miss Oscar de la Renta

With a heavy heart, I am bidding farewell to Oscar de la Renta, one of my most favourite designers and a truly fantastic gentleman. Oscar passed away peacefully on Monday October 20th after a long battle with cancer.

I LOVED this sweet piece from Anna Wintour. She was a close friend of Oscar's for many decades.

This video documentary from the Clinton Global Initiative brings back beautiful memories of the special man too.

[Street Art Sundays] Urban Forms Gallery

This mayor of Łódź, Poland is the coolest. And it's a woman - Hanna Zdanowska! She is funding a project on behalf of the city "to create a permanent exhibition of street art in the public space in the city centre of Lodz." 
Here are my favorites so far from the 30 murals:

[Street Art Sundays] Hopare

This kind of art blows me away. Intricate layers upon layers to create an astounding effect. Hopare knows what he's doing and the Frenchman working in Paris doesn't fail to disappoint.
