Recap: Pangeaseed’s Sea Walls – Murals For Oceans

We are pleased to kick off Shark Week with the latest from Pangeaseed, the international organization known for fusing art and activism – artivism – to educate the public on the conservation and preservation of endangered marine life. Constantly finding innovative ways of raising awareness in a creative and refreshing manner, they recently hosted Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans on the island of Isla Mujeres in Mexico. Taking place from July 20th through the 28th, the main goal of the event was to raise awareness not only for the conservation of the ocean, but also to educate the public on the greatly needed protection for the whale sharks and manta rays off the Yucatan peninsula.


Editorial: “Twins” by Janell Shirtcliff

You race the sun on Highway 1, eyes glued to the shifting colors of the sky. August is exhaling its first breath and while you feel nostalgic about the waning heat of the summer season, you also feel confident in what lies ahead. You ride with him, you always have. He’s your brother, your best friend, your twin. The rarity of finding a partner in crime who mirrors you, gifted by blood. We are pleased to welcome our latest exclusive editorial, “Twins,” shot by Janell Shirtcliff.


Preview: “Floaters” Ceramics and Paintings by Lorien Stern

We are pleased to present to you “Floaters”, the upcoming show of Live FAST favorite Lorien Stern. You probably remember her for her ceramic animal series, desert oasis, and creative sense of wonder. Focused primarily on ceramics and paintings of sea monsters, sharks, whales, plus a few land animals; Stern’s latest solo show will be one to warm and inspire.

Wanderlust: Palau’s Underwater Secrets

More and more through social media and other image sharing platforms we are exposed to captivating photos of hidden gems around the world. These photographs from such remote locations often stop us in our tracks and fill us with an almost colonial sense of mystery and wonder. Take a moment to revel in these photos taken by 21-year-old photographer, Jason Landis, who has truly mastered the art.

Recap: POW! WOW! Taiwan 2014

Remember when we fell head over heels for POW! WOW! Hawaii? When PangeaSeed took us swimming with sharks? Or when Tristan Eaton collaborated with POW! WOW! to create a mural for Versace’s newest flagship store in Honolulu? The festival never ceases to ignite inspiration and fresh musings for us over at Live FAST Mag, the most recent Taiwan gathering that took place May 28th to June 3rd being no exception.


The festival’s Taiwan debut blew us away, boasting a roster of some of our favorite US artists like Apex, Dabs, Insa, Madsteez, James Jean and Aaron De La Cruz – just to name a few; as well as regional artists such as Reach, Saym, Vita Yang, Xue, and Zishi. Curated by Jasper Wong and producing massive murals (we’re talking over one hundred feet tall), POW! WOW! Taiwan was a great success despite the thunderstorms and intense heat that plagued the festival.


Beginning as a week-long event in Hawaii, POW! WOW! has grown to become a collective art movement, globally organizing gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, and live art installations. Expanding to Israel, Jamaica, Washington D.C. and Germany, they’re ruling the art scene with their eclectic rosters and picturesque destinations. Peep some photos by Brandon Shigeta and Vincent Ricafort to consider yourself acquainted with the POW! WOW! team.

















Interview Series: Lorien Stern

There’s a part of me that will always love simple aesthetics coupled with irresistibly adorable concepts. This leads me to believe that there will be apart of me that will always love Lorien Stern‘s work. Originally from the small nook of a town known as Ojai, Lorien embodies a sense of adventure that is evident within her work. Ceramic cats, sharks, bears and other cute animals live alongside batik egg portraits while a knack for printmaking effortlessly transforms hand-drawn graphics – Stern has dipped her toes in a variety of mediums resulting in light-hearted yet emotive work.


Currently living on The Land, a family owned property nestled on the edge of the Mojave Desert, Lorien is focused on constant creation, inching towards a self-sustained lifestyle and plans to open up artist residencies at her desert hideaway. She was kind enough to have a chat with Live FAST and fill us in on her current musings, inspirations and endeavors. Check out what she has to say below!


Lingerie Guide: Kriss Soonik

Lingerie is supposed to be fun – a philosophy that Kriss Soonik casually manifests into each of her designs, and one that we wholeheartedly abide by. Always luxurious and unexpected, Kriss Soonik is a brand that, much like its creator, embodies sensuality with ease and emphasizes the importance of individuality. Season after season, the British designer unveils collections that are perpetually innovative and fresh, always in harmony with the brand’s influential eccentricity. We are beyond excited to feature this interview and exclusive lingerie guide with Neave Bozorgi, captured up in the hills of Los Angeles at LUX/LODGE, where the stunning decor is homey and the natural light is magical. Enjoy…

Art Crush: Zofia Bogusz

Zofia Bogusz creates ethereal images via her skilled use of oil paints, graphite, and colored pencils on hand-cut wood that drip with a mysterious feminine allure – each piece lends the intoxicating feeling of a beautiful woman staring you dead in the eyes.



Good Buzz: Juice Served Here

My recent cold-pressed addiction began at Juice Served Here, a forward-thinking juice bar in West Hollywood focused on producing raw and organic juices with a unique approach: keep things clean, simple and local. The company founded by  Greg Alterman and Alex Matthews occupies a few storefronts in and around Los Angeles, including their commissary in Culver City, where the juices are cold-pressed and delivered to each location bright and early every morning.

Lingerie Guide: Feu de Vénus

We don’t like to play favorites with our lingerie, but we’re willing to break the rules for this one. A new luxury label created by Montrealer Véronique Lepage, Feu de Vénus draws inspiration from the divine sensuality of the goddess Vénus herself, with a design emphasis on clean lines and sharp angles. We fell in love with the brand a few months back and thought an exclusive editorial shot by Neave Bozorgi would be the proper way to introduce their fashion-forward debut collection.


Babe Talk: Amanda Pizziconi

Born and raised in San Francisco, the divine Amanda Pizziconi is so much more than just a pretty face. The five-foot-eleven, wannabe superhero has the body of a goddess but she also bears a winning personality and a big heart to match. Delta Element photographs Miss Pizziconi in her natural state (not too much styling, minimal hair and makeup) looking sexier then ever, and we got to know the brown-eyed beauty a little better in this exclusive interview where she talks about everything from her fears to her turn-ons… enchantée, Amanda.

Art Crush: Kristian Schmidt

As you probably already know, here at Live Fast Mag, we are a little bit obsessed with the ocean. One of the most exciting exhibits we caught at Art Basel Miami this week centered around the whale shark, and the few daring ladies willing to dance beneath the sea with them.


Lingerie Guide: Maison Close (NSFW)

We teamed up with the brilliant Neave Bozorgi to bring you our first-ever exclusive lingerie editorial featuring Parisian brand Maison Close. Known for tastefully harnessing fetish vibes by playing with the roles of domination and submission, Maison uses lots of sheer fabrics and cheeky cutouts, leaving little to the imagination. Passionate about their french-style garments, they emphasizes the notion of “love games,” decorating their very detailed and intricate pieces with a playful, laissez-faire approach.

Interview Series: Warren Brand “The Cycle Of Art”

With his latest project, art enthusiast and curator Warren Brand has managed to bring new life to an ordinary urban space while bringing a community together. Surrounding himself with artists, neighbors and kindred spirits, he allowed a whole block of abandoned buildings to blossom into a vibrant, living work of art. As the result of many years of love, art and memories is about to get torn down, he’s working on immortalizing the experience through a documentary, which he hopes to get funded through IndieGogo. We had the chance to chat a little bit with the man behind the Branded Arts Complex, an inclusive and positive project that’s sure to inspire and to soon be reborn.
