New Miss Moss Company Crest

I am absolutely loving our new logo/crest. It has a wonderful old world feel about it yet it is altogether modern, organic and it packs a punch. This is the work of Sydney’s Red Pepper Graphics the go-to designers for bespoke work such as this. This will appear on the facade of our new building and across all of our branding. Love!

E.L.K Stencil Art Rocks!

You gotta love the ABC for its arts/cultural programs. This weekend I was mesmerized by a spot about Canberra stencil/graffiti artist E.L.K who uses spray-cans to conduct his work.  He is an autodidact, but the art form he began messing around with because ‘he needed something to do’ has started to gain him international attention and a swag of awards.

"Wake Up to the Stink" - aerosol on wood

Knightsbridge Mural

When you see an E.L.K stencil, it is difficult to figure out how something so photo-realistic could be created with a spray-can. And amazingly enough, his “Wake up to the Stink” stencil {above} that features Jesus in a gas mask was on a recent cover of Australia’s Art Monthly magazine.  For more, check out elkstensils.

RIP Margaret Olley

Prolific, free-spirited Australian artist Margaret Olley has died at her home in Sydney’s Paddington, aged 88. Over a career which spanned more than six decades, the Lismore-born artist became one Australia’s most loved and lauded artists.

Ben Quilty's portrait of Margaret Olley won this years prestigious Archibald Prize.

As well as being a prolific artist, Olley has also been one of the most-painted figures in Australian art. Her portrait by Ben Quilty won this year’s Archibald Prize. William Dobell’s portrait of her won the prize in 1948. She once described herself as “a one-woman band, too independent to be subservient to anyone”. RIP Margaret Olley.

What’s Not Too Love About Karim Rashid?

What’s not to love about NY based designer extraordinaire Karim Rashid? Check out these sample projects: a sound absoorbtion panel (in HOT pink – me like!): a very funky restaurant fit-out (can’t say our local restaurants look like this!) ; and a home interior space (very sci-fi- when can I move in?). I’ve always been a big fan of Karim’s after I first stumbled upon his work when I worked for MONUMENT magazine around 15 years ago. His repertoire includes design for furniture, products, interior spaces, packaging, art, fashion and such. What a multi-tasker! ANd how about his art work below. Retro with a futuristic edge. Love the colours.

Art So Good You Could Eat It!

Colour is a wonderful thing. It has such an effect on how you feel. These wonderful paintings by artist by Berlin based Theo Altenberg, make me feel like I want to jump into the paintings themselves and explore these intriguing, magical landscapes. And what an interesting, multi-talented artist Altenberg is.  Not only does he paint, he also engages in many other artistic genres: acting, writing, photography. He’s even played the role of Andy Warhol in a 1991 film, Andy’s Cake, directed by Terese Panoutsopoulo. Who said men can’t multi-task?

Trail of Inspiration

These yummy fabric samples are by
LULU DK an interiors company (based in NY) headed by designer Lulu deKwiatkowski. Along with textiles, LULU DK also produce wallpaper, bedding and other custom designed interiors products. I happened upon this company through Lulu’s blog, Trail of Inspiration which really is rather lush, lovely and lively. The main LULU DK website also features a quote by Truman Capote which reads: “The freedom to pursue an aesthetic quality in life is an extra dimension, like being able to fly while others work.” Fine words!
