The work week is in full force, and well, sometimes we need a little pick-me-up to keep the inspiration flowing for the remainder of the week. I came across Multi-Media artist Aurora Robson’s work while perusing the Columbus College of Art and Design’s lecture series this coming school year. Not only is she presenting at the school in September, but she will also open a solo exhibition at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens that runs through April. I know I’ll definitely be checking that out!
The medium for these collages are ink and junk mail–yup, junk mail. I would love to see them up close to really understand the dimension of the work since these images almost look like vector graphics. Her figural style is also transposed into sculpture, painting, and installation work that you can see on her website.

Holy Cow it’s August 1st! Let’s ring in the new month with some cool public art because how awesome is yarn bombing and graffiti?? Public Art has interested me for a while now–in fact a large portion of my grad school thesis dealt with this type of design. I love how a small insertion into the public space can have such a large effect on the the occupants. The art has a dynamic presence as inhabitants interact with and change it over time…
I woke up this morning with an email from my former classmate (and good friend) sharing this fabulous blog called Street Art Utopia. It’s full of great examples of street art both by novices and internationally known artists. Check it out today and be amazed.
Have you heard of the artist Blu? We were looking at his work yesterday in the office and I thought it was too cool not to share. I love old industrial parts of cities and Blu makes crazy awesome stop motion animations using the existing urban fabric. Pretty awesome. Check it out.
What are you up to this weekend? Any fun plans? Happy Friday the 13th! Make sure to stay away from black cats and all that jazz 🙂
Happy happy Monday to you! I felt like I was a little light on blogging last week, but don’t you worry, I have a week full of great stuff that deserves to be in the limelight. (that’s a hint, by the way)
How was your first June weekend? Ours was absolutely lovely. Brandon’s parents were in town and we spent Saturday afternoon perusing the fabulous art stands at the Columbus Arts Festival and then got all gussied up for a beautiful wedding at a historic hotel downtown.
