I am just amazed by Jennifer Maestre’s works. The Massachusetts-based artist creates unique sculptures of sea urchins that burst with colors and detail. The amazing part of her work is the fact that they were all created with just 1-inch segments of colored pencils: hundreds of them. From its characteristic spines and texture, she chooses to use the sea urchin as her main inspiration because of its form and function. She plays with the simple idea that something so beautiful can also be so dangerous. Truly beautiful.
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.
