Mike Parisella Lola Who Fashion Music Photography blog 33 view more

Slip into a world of optical illusion, folded fluorescence and unexpected juxtaposition with the otherworldly mixed media collages of Boston-based artist Mike Parisella. At times a psycho-nautical excursion to outer space and at others an intimate look at female beauty, @slimesunday is an artistic experiment with the world of cinema 4d, pixel sorting and data bending. Mike’s work is an homage to the endless hours of self-taught screen time and a dedication to authenticity. The diversity of scope, style and colour ranging from stunning double exposures to glitch art is a bold ...

Carolina-Morim-Embroidery-art-Lola-Who-Fashion-Music-Photography-blog-179 view more

Daggers, lasers, or maybe just a steely glare. All things that can be shot from one's eyes. Figuratively, of course... unless you're a superhero. Artist Carolina Amorim traces the gaze of her models with coloured thread. Some travel in straight lines, others in geometric shapes. A daydream, perhaps? Lost in thought? There are no vacant stares here. In any case, Amorim doesn't stop there. Other pieces feature triangular smoke plumes from a cigarette, creases in a skimpy negligee, and cheeky stitching where a young miss's underpants might be. Her use of colour varies, sometimes a ...

"Suicide was never supposed to be entertainment," said Alan Vega. The protopunk pioneer and frontman of Suicide, has died last Saturday at his home at the age of 78. The New York duo, comprised of Vega and Martin Rev, were among the first to describe themselves and their dissonant sound as “punk.” Unsettling and unpolished, Suicide made minimal and stripped down electronic music that sounded like white noise on a black backdrop. They created an atmosphere of anxiety and urgency—like the soundtrack of a movie that will put you on the edge of your seat. ...

kimber beck lola who fashion music photography blog 12 view more

The photography of 25-year-old Kimber Beck takes the form of self-portraits with a retro feel. Her work might be better described as body portraits that explore intimacy with the body of the self, and with the bodies of other women. Captured in whole or in part, female bodies are often found in surreal contexts and contortions. Intimate and dreamy, the subjects of her pieces are often faceless and unclothed—or wearing only underwear. ...
