K-Pop and Art

dada_newyork_01

Doom Dada by T.O.P Who would’ve thought? but in reality, music is a form of art, and so is K-Pop. So Bigbang’s main rapper and now a successful actor, Choi Seunghyun (aka T.O.P)’s new music video is out and I couldn’t help but dig deeper into it because quite honestly, all the symbolism was just…

Says Mr. Kelly Was at LACMA last week with Mr. P for Ellsworth Kelly’s exhibition who is famous for abstract art. I personally am conflicted when it comes to such subject because it always seems that the description is more interesting than the work itself… but then again, that may just be me.   Ellsworth…

The first thing I noticed about Florence is the colors. It’s one of the major factors that differentiates it from other cities in Italy which I’m inspired to apply onto my wardrobe. Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of Florence where you will find rooms filled with art from top to bottom. No matter how hard…

I would’ve finished off with cute…

bringing art back in my life

got tired of being in bed all day, so played with Illustrator for a bit. It’s been way too long since I’ve used the program. FYI, I took a few graphic design classes when I was in college. Of course its not being an art school, what we learned was for business use but the…

Pop Art Fun!

Noticed the new window display at Kiehl’s the other day for their new Acai Damage-Repairing Skincare collection, which reminded me of works by one of my favorite American Pop Artists, Lichtenstein, who by the way, has been on the news lately due to his art piece from Lehman Brother’s US offices being auctioned off in…
