Multidisciplinary artist Josie Lewis creates works that make me – and I’m guessing lots of others – insanely happy! Winding trails of graduated colored circles that travel over and under themselves on their journey, abstract moments caught forever in resin that remind me of the prettiest petri dishes, and so much more.
Artist μcapsmic takes the seemingly ordinary – spray paint nozzles – and quite literally reveals another world within. In A Vision of Cosmos a world is explored where the naturally clogged nozzles, untouched by human hands, become small-scale universes in their own right. See the video in its entirety below.
Smoke grenades and a few drones are essentially the formula for magic. Paul Trillo’s Chromacity takes place over the ocean as colored smoke dances across the sky leaving its mark. It feels especially timely as well with the 4th of July coming up next Monday here in the U.S.!

This week on Design Crush: Erik Olson seems to have located the intersection between cubism and expressionism.

I’m crazy about these countour key rings that could double as jewelry.
These lonely houses are stills from Maria Zaikinia‘s short film Landschaft Mit Haus and I adore them. The flatness makes me think of the midwest, while the variation on color convey the seasons those who live here experience. Watch the film below, and be sure to click over to read Maria’s artist statement on the project! (And if you check out her portfolio you’ll notice her penchant for architecture.)
