Fashion has a tendency of taking itself too seriously. It’s the area of fashion illustration were all the fun is. If you look at sketches from top designers like Karl Lagerfeld or Giorgio Armani, you can see that extremely detailed gowns got their starts from carefree, flick of the wrist sketches. As creative director of Bobbi … Continue reading

appreciate: Jacob Hashimoto

Japanese- American artist Jacob Hashimoto is one of the most unique living artists working today. His large scale installations that are constructed from intricately cut pieces of rice paper of different sizes, shapes, and color are breathtaking not only in up close and personal, but also in photography, a rare feat for most artwork. Hashimoto … Continue reading

appreciate: Chloe Cockburn

It is still a common misconception that people can’t  find the time to do all the things they are interested in. If anyone needs yet another example that this is possible, look no further than Chloe Cockburn. Cockburn is an acclaimed civil rights lawyer by day, but when she isn’t working on policy reform, she is painting a collection of gorgeous abstract … Continue reading

appreciate: Wilfred Lang

With the multiple creative tools that become available everyday, it has become difficult for an artist to take an overexposed muse and breathe new life into it.  Artist Wilfred Lang has done just that, taking an abstract approach when it comes to painting city skylines and urban landscapes. His artistic interpretations on architectural subjects that … Continue reading

appreciate: René Magritte

The name Magritte may not be as familiar as Picasso or Pollack, but the work is. Belgian artist René Magritte is well-known for thought-provoking paintings that titter between surrealism and realism. Some of his most famous works include “Son of Man” and “The Treachery of Image“, both pieces make the audience process and question what they … Continue reading

appreciate: David Datuna

America is the land of opportunities and during this President’s Day weekend, people in the Washington, DC area who visit the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery will have the chance to test out Google Glass and interact with one of David Datuna’s works at the same time. Known for his innovative multimedia works that takes on … Continue reading

appreciate: Jaeyeol Han

It’s funny how we as people can look at a person, a place, a thing (a noun basically) and see completely different things. In South Korean artist Jaeyeol Han’s portrait paintings, he allows the viewer to see not only the subject’s face, but the feelings that lies beneath it. Han’s paintings blur the lines between … Continue reading

appreciate: Mario Ceroli

It is very difficult to take structured material like glass or wood and shape and carve it into a sculpture that looks like it has movement and shape. Italian artist Mario Ceroli does with his installations and set designs. One of my favorite works of his is “The Wave”. This sculpture looks like a photograph, … Continue reading

A Year in Review – Art

If I have to be honest, writing the art sections are probably the 2nd hardest posts to write about for “Thought I Might Suggest”(The hardest section will be written about tomorrow). Trying to find artists to feature on this site who produce exciting,  visually eye pleasing work is no easy task. I feel like this … Continue reading

appreciate: Alicia Eggert

I recently came across artist Alicia Eggert’s work while reading about her in the Washington Post towards the end of November. She has  a new exhibit featured at the Artisphere, a art gallery in Arlington,VA called “Everything You Are Looking For” and the images used to promote the exhibit. I was so captivated by that … Continue reading

appreciate: Fornasetti

I had seen the portrait of this woman’s face everywhere, finding her image fascinating and creepy at the same time, but I never knew who the artist was until recently when I saw the imagery again on Instagram. Italian artist Piero Fornasetti was a jack of all trades in his field: he was a painter, … Continue reading

appreciate: Yayoi Kusama

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is a jack of all trades in the creative field. She works with a wide range of mediums, including paintings, collages, performance art, and sculptures to name a few. She had to have had an influence on artist like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol because she was known for pop art … Continue reading

appreciate: Do Ho Suh

My favorite thing about art installations is that the audience is able to interact with the piece more so than they would with a painting or photography. Korean sculptor and installation artist, Do Ho Sh is one of the reasons why I love this medium. His work is just as striking  and thought provoking from … Continue reading
