I discovered Jhameel a few months ago on Youtube after seeing his cover of Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl. Not only is Jhameel doing mind-blowing cover songs on Youtube (some of which he does while highly intoxicated), but he also self-produces his own original dance-pop music. His strong vocals and amazing beats are reminiscent of the King of Pop himself.
Papergirl is a street art event which started in Berlin in 2006 and is happening this summer in many cities around the world. Papergirl invites anyone and everyone to show their art in a week long exhibition, after which volunteers will roll up the art and distribute them via bicycle to random people all over the city.
My embroidered human/animal series is my most recent work. Each piece takes between forty and fifty hours to complete. This series was recently exhibited at the Emily Carr University Grad show as I’ve just graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts.
Natalie Tan, has created three new pieces for her latest painted series entitled People Don’t Care What They Say at You, Part II. Each piece features beautifully painted text, which invites the viewer in. Yet, the language itself is uncomfortable. Exploring Tan’s own experience with racism in Vancouver, these paintings leave the viewer with snippets of bigoted opinions and racial stereotypes.

Ruffeo Hearts Lil Snotty is a fearless clothing company from Brooklyn. Specializing in color-blocking and absolute obscurity, Ruffeo Hearts Lil Snotty makes some of the most fun clothing you’ve ever seen. I’ve been following them since they started out on Etsy making hoodies with ‘SARS guards’, and ever since, I’ve been in love.
