Aditi Kapur / The Theory of Colours

 

Aditi Kapur‘s The Theory of Colours concept was inspired by the unlikely combination of her 10-month-old niece and Drake’s Hotline Bling video. The vivid, rich colors had her rapt and it got Aditi wanting to create something interactive, combining color theory and gel films.

“The Theory Of Colours is the interaction between geometric artworks and gel papers, producing fascinating results with colours that are as much fun as they are a learning experience for kids and adults alike. The process of using different combinations of gel papers with the artwork to arrive at a visual answer makes the prospect especially exciting for kids, owing to how naturally inquisitive they are.”

Mélanie Bourget

 

French sculptor Mélanie Bourget‘s ceramic busts and faces are so full of personality that it’s difficult believing they aren’t about to start a conversation with you. Her style straddles the line between realism and fantasy, and I’d love to hear the stories each one has to tell.

International Women’s Day / A Day Without A Woman

Photo: Ace Hotel

I’ve gone back and forth in my head for days over whether or not I would actively participate in International Women’s Day and #DayWithoutAWoman. I’m a feminist, I believe in equal rights, I fight for equal wages and so much more, but something about the marked day felt… privileged? The idea of opting out of my normal Wednesday work duties when so many women (so many people!) cannot afford to take a day off felt… wrong?

And that’s the reason I decided to take part, actually. In support of gender-oppressed people who want better lives, who work their asses off just to make ends meet, who deserve to be treated as equally as you, me, and our so-called president.

I won’t be posting and if I do any shopping it will be with small, women- and minority-owned businesses. If you’re not able to take the day off from work but still want to participate you can show your support by wearing red. To learn more about the day, and the efforts behind it, check out the Women’s March page.

Coil + Drift

 

Brooklyn-based Coil + Drift was founded in 2014 by John Sorensen-Jolink, an acclaimed modern dancer-turned-designer. The studio creates contemporary furniture, lighting, and accessories with a focus on form, sustainability, and function. Sorensen-Jolink taught himself how to design in an attempt to further understand space and the objects within them. I’m looking forward to keeping an eye on what is for sure an up and coming brand!

Anna McNeil

 

Anna McNeil‘s paintings are perfect parts abstraction and realism, the division sign drawn with her paintbrush. In each piece she’s after your perception of a given moment, which is most likely informed by your own memory of experiences. You create the narrative from there, she just manipulates it a little.

Voider Sun

 

Soft, emotional, dreamlike illustrations and paintings are what Voider Sun is bring to the table. The Bengbu, China-based artist has quite the way with fuzzy edges that have the ability to make you fall into a daydream in a heartbeat.

Kristina Micotti

 

Kristina Micotti is a Bay Area-based illustrator who turned her doodling into a full-blown career, aka living the dream. Though her work jumps between minimal and detailed, there’s a definite air of whimsy throughout all of Kristina’s portfolio. Her shop is full of good stuff, too – lapel pins, totes, portraits, and more!

Nevertheless, She Persisted Tees!

 

LET’S TAKE THIS ONE STEP FURTHER. After our hugely successful post full of printable #resistance postcards some of you reached out about the possibility of selling my design as a t-shirt. My gears immediately started turning, because why hadn’t I thought of that??

I submitted my design to Cotton Bureau (a favorite business right here in Pittsburgh) and as of today you have two weeks to purchase it on their site! The shirt is being offered in white, maroon, and vintage black in both men’s and women’s sizes for you to rock on your hot little bods. (Note: None of the shirts are pre-washed, but should only shrink *maybe* half an inch if washed in cold water.)

Half of all proceeds are headed straight to the ACLU! So buy it, wear it, and stand up for what you believe in.

Edward Walton Wilcox / Haunted

 

Edward Walton Wilcox really nails the gothic aesthetic with his art. His latest series, Haunted, is flat out amazing. Even though they’re paintings on board they have a chemical wash feel to them that I absolutely love. If you’d like to see some really intense work be sure and look at his entire portfolio!
