What do you get when you cross a reclusive former Warhol superstar with a penchant for extravagant couture with something as iconic as a Barbie Doll? You get MDVANII. Make NO mistake about it, the Art Dolls that BillyBoy* creates are not to be referred to as Barbies. Barbie could only ever dream of taking on the many sultry forms that MDVANII has assumed over the years.
Have you ever thought that you’d love to own some art, but it’s just too expensive? Well think again. The people at Tiny Showcase not only curate a great selection of art that is very affordable, but the artists most often donate a portion of the procedes to a worthy cause. So you can have […]
It just wouldn’t be a holiday season without a fun new character from Kidrobot. This year they approached Frank Kozik for the task again and the result is this most endearing, top hat-wearing, spirit-swigging, smoking snowman. He’s super cool, but I don’t think I’d call him Frosty or he just might cut you.
When I first encountered one of Quel Beast’s larger than life, technicolour paintings on the street, I was stopped in my tracks. The humor with which he portrays his subjects is genius and his illustrations so halucinatory, you expect them to move.
Whoever said Goth is dead failed to inform these people. This blog is vivid proof that Goth is very much alive — I mean, undead — and kicking, in style.

To say that Purevile is a jewellery maker is a gross underestimation. He is a purveyor of handmade goods that are meticulously pieced together from his magpie’s nest collection of curiosities. He is ultimately a curator and creator. Even his living space is a museum of the macabre. He’s not kidding when he says: ‘The revolution will be accessorized’.
For my money (some day, when I have some), you can’t get a cooler hoodie than you’ll find at Head Hoods. I first stumbled across their work when I was out photographing street art in the East Village.
I hate to drop the ‘C’ word, but Christmas is only two months away and that time is going to fly. These plush mini Labbits would jazz up any Christmas tree and they’d be great stocking stuffers, too.
I must confess that I’d previously only been acquainted with Sylvia Plath’s writing, so I was delighted to learn that she was also an artist. The Mayor Gallery in London will be showing a collection of 44 of her illustrations from November 2 until December 16. The illustrations offer a beautiful insight to the writer’s […]
