Richie Velazquez otherwise known as Deladeso, is quickly becoming one of our favorite artist on Tumblr. His art is wild, colorful and fearless. Some of our favorite 90’s cartoons are often played with, as well as pop-culture icons and nostalgic objects. Often replicated, his digital creations are clearly inspiring the current art and design world. For more #digitaldeathandgrime, visit Deladeso’s blog.
Near Palisades Park in Santa Monica there is a new installation by artist HOT TEA. Migration, is a beautiful rainbow of yarn. Strands connected to chain-link fences, that take you through the gradient fade of a rainbow. 1,800 strands of different colors, on top of the pedestrian bridge that takes you to the beach. We hope this unauthorized installation isn’t taken down any time soon, as it makes the way to the beach, an even more beautiful sight. We suggest you catch the rainbow while you can!
John Foster is a design object artist based in Minneapolis, MN. He works with various materials such as quartz, acrylics, glass, gold, and glitter. He’s a wizard at creating substrates which are cut into multidimensional tiles that are then polished, and welded together to create dreamy objects. Our favorite is his hand-crafted interstellar-sparkle table (recently commissioned by producer and DJ; ZEDD). John describes his art as experimental. “The objects I make bring the viewer into the moment, with visceral gasps and heart skipping opulence. The colors are rich, the sunlit moments are priceless.” he say's. John draws inspiration for his art from his love of music, and constantly seeking patterns. “Sounds are some of the most beautiful shapes you can't see, but feel.” he say’s. Currently, John is working on accessory design in addition to his objects. A preview is live on his site. Below are some of our faves.

The body of work of French painter and interdisciplinary artist Johanna Tagada is intertwined with the notion of happiness and feelings of wellness.
Tagada attempts for the viewers of her work to feel less anxious and more serene. In her paintings and through her entire practice, with the use of soft colours and shapes she hopes to relax her audience. The artist derives most of her inspiration from daily life and experiences. Her artworks, often semi autobiographical and related to feelings are described as poetic and delicate. To create a dialogue with the viewer is a position Johanna adopts in several of her works.
Utrecht Now idea, Tokyo, July 2014, Tagada first initiates Épistolaire Imaginaire an installation piece, in which she invites visitors and friends to leave a written note of a simple moment of happiness in one of the pale pink notebooks she hand-made, as part of the installation. The audience is given the task to write (anonymously or not, in any language or form) a short memory of a moment of simple happiness. In exchange of this note, each participant can take home a folded letter written by Tagada herself. The letters are positive, encouraging, simple yet powerful. Though the time frame of the exhibitions the letters part of the installation decrease, just as flower petals taken away by a breeze.
Épistolaire Imaginaire is thought as a travelling installation questioning simple happiness.
Abbot Kinney in Venice is a great place to go get lost. It is block after block of street art, eclectic shopping, and good ole' California vibes. You can find a good pair of cut-off shorts on a front yard, air plants sold from a renovated shipping container, and a psychic eager to tell you about the future. When the temperature rises you can cool off with a watermelon-raspberry lemonade, and hide inside a tiny house filled with Vinyl records. On Abbot Kinney, California is truly alive.
New lifestyle and art blogger here. My name is Krystabell and together we will discover art, design, and all things rad. About me? Well, for starters - On any given day, my brain is basically a bowl of alphabet soup. I have too many notebooks, many to-do lists, I am a Virgo.
I can usually be found at a farmer’s market, an art show or eating somewhere in K-Town. Last year, we got this Laura Berger piece, it's still my favorite in our home.

When we first featured photographer Veronica Sanchis Bencomo on the blog, we loved seeing her collection Thirty Sundays around London.
Now Veronica has moved to New York and has started her Thirty Sundays project once again and we decided to join her on this adventure.
Every month we’ll post the Sunday photos Veronica has taken and see the transition of her life in the Big Apple.
"Having found myself move to the Big Apple recently, I thought to explore it with a camera in my hand. I decided to repeat my Thirty Sundays project, this time in New York. This new project is set more or less under the same grounds as the previous one, one Polaroid every Sunday during thirty weeks. However, this time I have changed the camera to Fujifilm Instax 210. This camera, unlike my previous one, Fujifilm Instax 7S, has more controls, such as, two focusing settings and lighting options also the photo itself is slightly bigger. The project is an experimentation with no overarching theme. It has been done under certain rules set by me and the limitations of the instant camera. " Says Veronica.
