Sharjah Biennial: Day 5…. The Sheikhs!

 

One of my favorite pastimes while in Dubai & Sharjah is to photograph all the photos and paintings of the various Sheikhs in every single building that you enter. They all vary in scale, medium, and content but all are fascinating. I think we should take this practice up in the states, plastering Obama’s photos and paintings behind every single business desk.

Kye Crow

From what I gather, Kye Crow is a seamstress/nomadic animal rescuer. “My partner Gill and I live with our huge family of rescues animals.We live on the edge of lake Pamamaroo after having travelled over 2,000 klms in a wagon pulled by camels and with over 40 previously rescued animals.Check out our website www.animalrescuecamelcaravan.com.We are both creative and as well as our range of Goddess clothing ,I crochet wild jumpers and bags,paint and write,that is when Im not feeding an orphan animal.At the moment its a joey and a lamb called Shirley” 

After checking out theyre animal rescue site, I still cant tell if this is for real or not. It just sounds too amazing to be true. All I know is: I just payed $700 for a jumper just like this and now I feel taken.

Lisa Hanawalt

e

Lisa Hanawalt is an artist working out of Los Angeles.  Being from the Midwest, the clothing and textile patterns remind me of mah hood or makes me want to be a farm land hipster.  Either one.

Her work also reminded me of the saying,  “you are what you eat.”

Hello Future

 

While conducting top secret research for B/D, I came across this now out of print tarot deck by furry/artist  Joe Rosales.    Im not saying that the world needs more Hello Kitty stuff, but the feline adaptations of the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck worth checking out.

Miika Saksi

Illustration for Aamulehti

Finnish illustrator/photographer/director Miika Saksi’s work is everything I love about fantastical and mythic Lisa Frank evoking creatures galloping the fine line between awesome and cheesy as hell. It’s almost as if (for me) the relationship between work I like, and what I can Google image search is basically one and the same…

Art Dubai/Sharjah Biennial: Day 4

 

Art Dubai Opens today but I had a chance to sneak in yesterday and take some shots before the masses stormed the fair. As a result I don’t have the names of all the artists/galleries but there’s still some good eye candy.
