    Glorious Pastel Drawings of Melting Icebergs by Zaria Forman.

    27th March

    Brooklyn-based artist Zaria Forman documents the realities of climate change in her glorious pastel drawings of melting icebergs and extreme environments. Apart from the fact that Zaria’s work is ridiculously beautiful, I’m most drawn to this sense duality she captures so effortlessly – her drawings have movement and stillness at the same time. They are both calming and eery. Divine and treacherous.

    Fort Standard // Industrial Design Studio in New York.

    21st August

    Fort Standard is a Brooklyn-based contemporary industrial design studio founded by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings. Pure geometry, sophisticated detailing, and long lasting natural materials like timber, marble and brass are the hallmark of their work.

    I’d love to walk down the street and discover one of these assaults of colour. Can you imagine it? There would be a shriek of excitement followed by a case of instagram gone wild.

    Shantell Martin’s Illustrated Apartment in Brooklyn.

    17th October

    Shantell Martin is a London-born, Brooklyn-based visual artist. This is her apartment in Brooklyn. Yes, she drew all over the walls and ceilings. Lucky she rents this place from her friends who gave her the permission to draw freely. Ms. Martin is an internationally acclaimed artist whose drawings feature on the walls of many private homes and commercial spaces. She is also known for her live performances where she creates drawings that are digitally projected and set to music and light, anywhere form MoMA to nightclubs in Tokyo. Oh yes indeed, this young lady is one super cool cat…
