Over the years, I’ve delighted in watching Brad Eastman’s artistic journey on walls, canvas and photos. Sydney’s very own Beastman has gone from commissioning street art on Arnold Lane and spicing up Oxford Art Factory walls, to collaborating with vodka big shots, Smirnoff.
If you’re like Jerry Seinfeld and have trouble admitting that you use a man-bag, then the next best thing is an iPod bag. Let’s face it: all a guy needs on the go is a mobile phone, bank card and the clothes on his back. That’s why this aesthetically-pleasing Pocket Phone Wallet by Hard Graft […]
How do you know what door to walk through when there are literally 10,000 doors on a building to choose from? Your average Joe might ask that question, but it’s clear that South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa is challenging the perception of art. Yet again. He’s a firm believer that art should engage with the greater population and that you can find Korean art outside of museums and galleries. So he stacked the brightly coloured recycled doors on top of each other on a 10-story high rise building in bustling downtown Seoul.
Explosive, intricate faces etched into the surfaces of various Shanghai walls? As per usual, any medium goes with Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto, aka Vhils. He has continued his love-affair with carving portraits on the side of destroyed houses and walls. Catch his latest solo exhibition at 18 Gallery Shanghai from March 31.
If you’re not aware of the Neil Degrasse Tyson Reaction comics sprawling across the Internet by now, you ought to start paying attention because it’s frigging hilarious. Basically, it’s a rage comic character with the face of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson posing in a defensive gesture. To poke fun at arrogant and boastful comments posted on the net, the image is often associated with the catchphrase: ‘watchout guys, we’ve got a badass over here’.
I don’t know about you, but I struggle with misplacing my little SanDisk USB stick. That’s why I think Rene Lee’s Metro Flash Drive is one of the savviest, aesthetically pleasing pieces of digital stationary designed this year. It integrates a clever pen clip at the front of the device so you can pop it […]
It’s ironic how so many females refer to themselves as Barbies, but the vast majority will never actually get to be one. But for Nicki Minaj, that’s an entirely different story. Mattel’s Barbie crew teamed up with the Young Money rapper to bring her Barbie persona to life in the name of charity. Think classic […]
Add a little swagger to your style with the Alpina M1 vintage sunglasses. The 80s-made shades have been worn by the likes of Rick Ross, Jazy-Z, Victoria Beckham and Stevie Wonder to name a few. And now they’re available to buy at Bangkok’s funky SuperrZaaap! Terminal 21 store.
From gold embroidered royal iced flowers to brocaded cameo decor topped treats, Amber Spiegal has a real knack for baking and decorating Victorian-inspired cookies in her aptly named Etsy store, SweetAmbs.
Last week brought us the Wake N’ Bacon, and now we’re being spoilt with even more convenience: the desktop microwave oven. It’s the ultimate time-saver and workspace companion. Designed by Steve Gates, this appliance is built to suit a specific line of heat and eat meals that come pre-packaged with RFID tags. It’s fully operational […]
Indulging in a new Louis Vuitton handbag may heal a fashion-conscious victim’s broken heart. But if you’ve got a nasty graze, then I suggest high-maintenance fashionistas continue to heal in style with Brandages: custom designed bandaids inspired by an array of top fashion brand logos and signature patterns. Now, where is Versace?
Scrabble addicts and Words with Friends enthusiasts can flaunt their love for linguistics to visitors with these neat word cushion covers. Etsy retailer Bambina designed and manufactures them using sturdy cotton canvas with felt lettering.
Damn! Why didn’t I know about these strikingly fashionable medical boots when I fractured my foot earlier on in the year? Unfortunately, I was stuck in a very boring, garden-variety, plain black moon boot for six weeks when I could have been rocking one of these stylish babies.
Andrea Bricco gives the expression playing with food on your dinner plate a whole new meaning. Her new series looks far better than my childhood attempts at making masterpieces out of mash potato and other vibrant vegies.
I admire Slovenian artist Blaz Porenta and his liberal approach to re-interpreting our favourite childhood characters on canvas. Instead of depicting the cute, fluffy stories we grew up reading about, protagonists like the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood have been transformed into frightening nightmares.
