NYC The Way Ludwig Farve Sees It.


Ludwig Favre, Born in France in 1976, in north of Paris. Ludwig Favre is a Photographer specializing in major cities and landscapes of America, raised in Paris, he has created visuals on a variety of media platforms from advertising campaigns to magazine editorials, books, gallerys over the world.  Ludwig Favre is without doubt a man with skills and a keen sensibility for aesthetics and composition.  Favre travels the world documenting its wonders in a way that elevates their look, creating an almost surreal, paint-like quality to the very landmarks we probably take for granted. From the front-facing wall of a building, to national parks, the designs of universities, pristine beaches and cityscapes around the world, click on any of Favre’s projects on his official online portfolio and you’ll be inspired by every shot, each representing a stunning scene of the world like you’ve probably not appreciated as much before.  Here’s his take on the one-and-only New York City.

You’ll Never Believe What These Portraits Are Made Of…


park-9

It’s always been said that a picture is worth 1,000 words, but how many cuts is it worth?  Using a process that could be the new definition of meticulous, Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park creates giant ephemeral portraits by cutting layer after layer of wire mesh. Each work begins with a photograph which is superimposed over layers of wire with a projector, then using a subtractive technique Park slowly snips away areas of mesh. Each piece is several inches thick as each plane that forms the final image is spaced a few finger widths apart, giving the portraits a certain depth and dimensionality that’s hard to convey in a photograph, but this video on YouTube shows it pretty well. Park just exhibited this month at Blank Space Gallery in New York as part of his latest series Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit). You can see much more at West Collects.

The Pure Beauty Of Facial Paralysis.

After spending three months at a facial nerve clinic in Boston, photographer Sage Sohier left more knowledgable, having gained more insight on facial paralysis. With her, the photographer also took several visual mementos of patients she has met seeking treatment for their conditions. Her powerful portrait series titled About Face presents a number of people dealing with varying degrees of facial paralysis who have bravely overcome their vulnerability, if even for a brief moment, to “smile for the camera.”

With a six decade long career behind her, the famed japanese artist Yayoi Kusama shows no signs of slowing down, presenting a monumental show of new and recent work at David Zwirner gallery in New York. Her distinguishing themes of universal infinity, endlessness, and the cosmic realms are reflected in twenty-seven new large scale paintings, two immersive sculptural rooms, and a video installation, of which the exhibit ‘I who have arrived in heaven’ is comprised, spanning the gallery’s three consecutive locations. Kusama’s amalgamation of pop and minimalist art have manifested as hypnotic architectural interventions within david zwirner gallery, dizzying the visitor in illuminated mazes of sound, light, and color. A room of kusama’s most kaleidoscopic environments to date is filled with inflatable tentacle like forms covered in the artists trademark polka dots, while the artist’s voice can be simultaneously heard reciting a japanese love poem. Her more recent explorations of two-dimensional mediums have been realized through the series of acrylic works, all painted by hand, with representations of vibrant biomorphic shapes and forms personified as animated creatures.

Shot in West Oakland, California. In between gallery shows David Waldorf would hang a 9 ft seamless and put a sign on the sidewalk that said “Free Photos”. People from the neighborhood came and got their portraits taken.

São Paulo-based interior design and architectural practice Tacoa Arquitetos have completed the Adriana Varejão Gallery project. The contemporary property is  located in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Adriana Varejão Gallery was commissioned to shelter two works of the artist acquired by the museum and exhibited at Cartier Foundation: the sculpture Linda do Rosário and the polyptych Celacanto Provoca Maremoto. The project occupies a hillside with a small slope partially surrounded by the native forest, an area formerly used to store containers. The original topography was modified for this new use: a huge displacement of earth has cut it, creating the great horizontal plane necessary to the storage. The orientation of the project aimed to recompose the site’s original topography and inserting on it an artificial element: a regular block in reinforced concrete, partially inserted in the hillside. The building structure and interior design is composed by an irregular retaining wall that gains the space in the ground floor and receives the loads of the block, in its deepest part, trough two beams, in the middle, trough four columns integrated in the wall.

Ollie Lucas Art.


Originally hailing from Perth, Ollie Lucas is a visual artist now residing in Melbourne, Australia. Previously his work revolved around the cerebral phenomenon ‘pareidolia’. Pareidolia put simply is seeing objects in clouds or recognisable objects in patterns or surfaces. His surfaces are created through swirling colours blended together to create a dynamic moving base. It’s upon this base that the intricate pattern work is applied through drawing. Using an almost meditational concentration the drawn pattern work combines with the colour to create a complex and detailed abstract surface for the eye to explore. However since moving to Melbourne Ollie has been bombarded with streets filled with a combination of graffiti, street art and urban decay.

My work has always had graphical and clean elements to it. A past life as a graphic designer is to blame there. Exposure to the graffiti scene in Melbourne has made me question harmony in my work, I have a love for filthy, dirty and weathered paint splattered surfaces, but at the same time I crave clean, modern, hardline geometrics. This is what drives my practice, combining two visual elements that are polar opposites in search for a harmony that i may never obtain.
