Sh*t My Friends Make


One of my favorite parts of my job – and my life – is that I get to meet and befriend the most amazing people. People who spend late nights working on their passion projects, who understand why shopping small is so important, and who are just generally awesome. I had every intention of getting this post pulled together earlier in the month, but my other jobs (I’ve got some hustle, too) have kept me busier than usual. I’m sure some shipping windows have already closed to order things in time, but you never know! And plenty of these guys have sales, free shipping, etc going on right now. Please know that the best, most genuine people are behind these shops. (I’m sure I’ve forgotten a few as well!)

Liza Lou


Los Angeles-based Liza Lou‘s artwork truly boggles my mind. THOSE ARE GLASS BEADS, all of them, every single one, and Lou threaded each bead with her own hands. The sheer size and quantity she’s created for each of these sculptural installations is a lot to take in, and the final works completely mesmerizing. Sometimes the beaded squares are layered on top of one another to create a further depth of color.







Ana Montiel


The latest work by Mexican-based artist Ana Montiel delve into the nature of perception — the what, why, and how of consciousness. They’re mesmerizing, with a quiet energy rumbling just out of view.







Charlotte Keates


London-based artist Charlotte Keates paints from inspiration gathered on a trip around the United States and Canada, as well as a mysterious set of slides indirectly acquired from a wealthy American family which documents their travels in the ’60s. Her paintings are a most welcome respite on freezing cold December days when you can project yourself right into her work – I’ll be in the jungle home!







Hilary Pecis


So often we take the everyday moments in life for granted, we take ourselves out of the present to think about something in the past that’s nagging or what’s to come in the future. Hilary Pecis paints these moments from her life and gives us permission to stop and think about our own.

Alan Belcher


Alan Belcher is known for developing the ‘photo object’ genre of art, in other words artworks that combine photography and sculpture. In this series the universal jpeg icon has been turned into a 3D object that deceives the eyes. This ceramic multiple edition is entitled _____.jpg and was fabricated in China in an edition of 125, each signed, numbered, and dated.






Sarah Meyohas


New York City-based artist Sarah MeyohasSpeculations series is a never-ending exploration of environments, one within another within another until infinity. She creates these amazing setups that pull the viewer in so deeply by using two mirrors that face one another. Florals, smoke, even playing cards are all turned into their own endless worlds.
