In Focus: Seea, Suits Born To Surf

Surf’s up, ladies! Aside from a nice board, you might also want to have a great outfit to express yourself out there on the waves or on the beach. I was looking for a rashguard that’s pretty and practical at the same time, and my search had been rather disappointing until I came across Seea. It was love at a first sight, and I had to hold myself back from buying the Doheny Rashguard in every color. All made in sunny California, the products will protect you from burning with sun protective fabrics.

Art Crush: Ho-Ryon Lee

Ho-Ryon Lee‘s tantalizing oil paintings make your eyes focus on non-existent points, leaving you to think you are seeing double. Your eyes send mixed signals to your brain, which gets confused as to what you should be looking at and forces you stare at the image for a shamelessly long time. These suggestive and sensual overlapping images are based on actual photos taken by the artist and then painted on canvas. Gorgeous!

Just imagine how much time and patience Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner had to put into creating these stunning photographs of bursting soap bubbles for his project called “Iridient.” He used high speed flash units and special lighting to catch the soap bubbles in different stages of rapture. According to the Oefner, it took him couple of hundred shots to finally capture that moment, since bubbles disrupt extremely quickly.

A great abstract expressionist painting is a wonderful conversation starter, and when it’s made with a Love Is Art DIY art kit, I can guarantee it will leave a lasting impression not only on art lovers… but just on lovers in general. You might want to have another “G” rated version of the painting’s history at hand for when you are visited by in-laws, ex-es, new love interests, or curious little kids who want to learn about art at an early age.
David LaChapelle’s Earth Laughs in Flowers
BY Victoria Fishel 14 Feb 2012 @ 6:14 am | Categorized: Live_Art>, Photography
Valentine’s Day is typically one of the most popular days to buy flowers, whether you love them, or just out of obligation. But “I love you” is not the only message that can be expressed through a bouquet, especially when it’s carefully arranged by David LaChapelle and photographed like a Baroque still life painting. The large format, chaotic photographs seem vibrant and happy at first, just like flowers should. But when you take a closer look you get hit with notes of human overindulgence and greed, and somehow “I love you” doesn’t cut it anymore.
David LaChapelle’s still life photographs installation “Earth Laughs in Flowers” opens today, February 14th, at the Robilant & Voena gallery in London, and on February 23 at Fred Torres Collaborations.
