Originally established under the name WIWP by Darren Firth and exhibiting some of the best in the cross-over area between design and art, WeOccupy is now a fine purveyor of prints from a hand-picked selection of those same artists. You can bag yourself both originals and limited editions from the likes of Mario Hugo, David Bray, Siggi Eggerston, Dalek, Jesse Auersalo, MVM, Jonathan Zawanda and others.
This is two years old now but it will still totally blow your mind. And with Obama yesterday announcing the commencement of his 2012 Presidential run, it’s scintillatingly relevant again. Be dazzled at the work of toy artists Dalek, Bill McMullen and Kubrick.
I have followed the Clayton Brothers’ work since the mid-90s and had the pleasure of meeting them a few years back. Their art is a reflection of what great people they are. It’s really compelling to see their work in person. I love it and can’t get enough of it. I wish I had a […]
Seonna Hong is one of the most amazing, incredible humans I have ever met. So it’s no great leap for her artwork to be equally amazing. She has served as a constant source of inspiration and support for me over the years. She’s a multi-talented, multi-tasking mother who operates with the purest of grace. Soak it in.
I wasn’t aware of who Emilio Pucci was until my work was compared to his for the hundredth time. I’m happy to have anyone make that connection. I’m not a high fashion person. I keep to the basics and feel alright about it. The introduction to his work was mind blowing for me. Not only […]
Dalek’s paintings were originally populated by Space Monkeys, creatures inspired by the artist’s childhood and teenage years in Japan. His most recent paintings have metamorphosed into incredibly complex abstract works, emphasizing his meticulous attention to detail and amazing sense of colour and composition. Dalek’s work has been widely exhibited internationally, and he recently spent a year as an assistant of Takashi Murakami, probably the most famous artist in the contemporary art scene. His latest exhibition Dalek and Delta, runs at the Elms Lesters Painting Rooms from August 28 to September 26. He’ll be contributing guest posts to Lost At E Minor over the next two weeks on the art and music that’s inspiring his own work right now.
