On Thursday February 16th our Brooklyn store is holding an event that will include an art exhibition and raffle with local artist Jennifer Contini! Jennifer does beautiful heart installation paintings, incorporating a multitude of mediums, so it felt appropriate to share some of her work today with the approach of Valentine’s day! At the event, customers who spend $150 or more will be entered in a raffle to win a piece of her lovely work!
Jennifer’s website speaks of her love affair with New York, about which she says “I live and work in a place that beats to the same drum as I do. The fast urban pace of Manhattan is home, and my vibrant downtown neighborhood defines and inspires my work. This is the space where my artistic vein finds higher meaning.” Her pieces have a distinct urban, street art feel, and are like artistic valentines to the city she loves.
See more on her website. We’ll have more details on the event next week!
When we were in Austin in April shooting our July Catalog, we were fortunate to be there during the month when an exhibit by artist Luke Jerram was installed throughout the city. The live art installation is called “Play Me, I’m Yours,” and consists of several pianos that are placed throughout a given city, in public locations, for people to draw on, paint on, and most importantly, play music on.
This idea is so brilliant… not only do the brightly colored, somewhat oddly placed pianos attract a lot of attention, they invite you to be a part of the exhibit by playing music – and there is a website where you can upload photos and videos you take with the piano.
The exhibit started in 2008 and has been spreading joy and music all over the world ever since. Here are some photos from Austin (each city has its own website with a map displaying the location of each piano):
Recognize this red one from our July Catalog? It’s in a BMX park!
I love this photo of our creative director taken by Alexandra Valenti:

in case you haven’t noticed, we can’t get enough of surfer style right now- in our may catalog, on our website, in our guest blogger series, we LOVE it. so when i saw this art installation/exhibition by photographer keegan gibbs on another blog i had to share. i love that it mixes a traditional exhibit- art hanging on gallery walls – with installation. and its so realistic, i could definitely imagine some surf rats hanging out in this space!
so rad. check out his blog for more!
