These beautiful fashion illustrations are by artist, Garance Doré. She began her career as a fashion illustrator with the desire to produce timeless, classic, beautiful illustrations and from my perspective she has far surpassed that goal. Her work has appeared in fashion magazines (Elle, Vogue Paris, etc.) and in conjunction with such well known designers as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Tiffany & Co., etc. She is also a photographer and fashion blogger with a dedicated following. Her work has been exhibited throughout the world, including New York, London and Sydney. Both Art Prints and posters (for a modest price) are currently available for purchase. So if you are a lover of fashion, Garance Doré may be of interest to you.

Jo Woffinden, through her work, has declared herself a promising new talent in the world of contemporary design. As a recent graduate from Royal College of Art in the UK, she works with a variety of materials including porcelain, stoneware, bone china, concrete, plaster and even paper. Her Baroque line of sculptural objects is a juxtaposition of geometric curves, lines and planes. While the interior of these pieces form an almost continuous space, the exterior creates quite the opposite affect with its lovely misalignment of height and depth. Ms. Woffinden’s creations manage texture and color in a very natural way, so that one has the urge to reach out to feel their surfaces. I, personally, am so excited to see concrete worked in a way that breathes new life into such an often overlooked medium. Clearly, it has extraordinary potential when placed in the right hands.

I recently visited our local YellowKorner. I can never go there without finding at least a dozen photos I would love to have in my home. The company was founded in 2006 by Alexandre de Metz and Paul-Antoine Briat, two young friends who both have had a life long love of photography. Their galleries are located throughout Europe and the United States. They offer contemporary photography from all over the world. As a company YellowKorner strives to maintain high artistic standards, while allowing for upcoming contemporary artists to occupy space alongside the big names. To make prices more affordable, they offer their exclusive, top quality photographic prints in larger quantities so that many, rather then a few, have the ability to enjoy the beautiful creations.

Brett Amory is a contemporary artist born in Chesapeake, Virginia in 1975. He lived in Bay Area, California for 15 years and moved to San Francisco where he lived another 15 years. Currently, he is living in Oakland since 2009. The modern painter has experienced doing solo shows in London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and San Jose.
His current work involved the “Waiting” series, which he began in 2001. The modern painting series depicts commuter subjects who seemed to be isolated and detached from other commuters as well as their environment. The series is inspired by public transit and the residents of Tenderloin neighborhood located specifically in San Francisco.
The modern artist based his works on photographs that he took on his experience of the ordinary city architecture and random subjects on a daily basis. These people or subjects are neither known to him nor speak to them.
The amazing art captures the ideas of those who seem lost, awkward or lonely as they are in public territory as if they don’t fit socially. The series speaks of reality especially in our inability to live in the “now.” It is titled as such because we always wait for whatever comes next – always moving forward, not thinking about now or still thinking about what has already passed.
The contemporary art that Brett Amory has presented speaks about the fact that we are living in an era of distraction where thinking about the present is hard to achieve without meditation. His paintings visually represent this very thought or concept in order to remind us that it living in the now is as important as thinking positive for the future. This is something that I am guilty of – and I think I am not alone in this line of thinking.

If you’re looking to add some interest to your walls without making a large investment, you might want to check out Outline Editions. They offer high quality, limited edition prints from Britian’s most influential graphic artists.
“We believe graphic art is a uniquely friendly art form – made for sharing – and that’s why we are trying to get brilliant work out there to be enjoyed by as wide an audience as possible through temporary pop up exhibitions, Design festivals, events and our website. Our roster of artists include Noma Bar, Anthony Burrill, Marion Deuchars, Kristjana S Williams, Kate Moross, Patrick Thomas, James Joyce, Hellovon and Claire Scully”.
I have to admit that I really enjoy these designs. I love it when art allows me to see in different ways and some of these designs, just make me smile…and we should all do as much of that as we can.

A modern art is perceived and felt not thought – or so I would like to say. Looking at the contemporary art of Tzviatko Kinchev has brought hundreds to thousands of thoughts – inspiring thoughts – into me, almost suffocating and poetic. This is what this modern artist made me feel through his paintings.
Tzviatko Kinchev is born in Sofia, Bulgaria and a very extraordinarily talented man – at least that’s how I perceive his work. He is studying in The National Academy of Arts but at the same time works as a 2D artist in Haemimont Games. You can check out his work and I’m sure you would agree if I will tell you how good he is in using colorful palette of warm colors that almost burn me with passionate desire to create paintings if words were enough.
This contemporary artist bring inspiration to others through the beauty he creates and what most would probably notice – and for the lack of description – he is using palette knife and it shows well execution on the artist’s part. I may be wrong on this though but the texture of the modern painting speaks to me in this sense. In addition, the use of warm colors is particularly exceptional. Despite the fact that his paintings suffered the brunt of people’s criticism – I don’t really care because it is easy to really recognize art when you see one.
I have once heard it from a relative – “there is no right or wrong in art as long as you express your thoughts and feelings with honesty then that’s art right there.” This modern painter has painted simply wonderful and delightful images that could drive others to do the same.
So, art is art no matter how it is done as long as it speaks of honest imagination and creativity that goes beyond what others think. I think his paintings are pieces of beautiful art no matter how he did it.
