Joana Vasconcelos is one of our favorite new Portuguese artists. She works with sculpture and installation, using a lot of materials and symbols that relate to Old Portugal but at the same time have a modernity and simplicity that we just love. Her crochet works, in particular, are very famous.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
