Ladylike Legs

Fantastic surreal watercolour paintings by Tokyo-based artist Akiko Kobayakawa. The cute, innocent animals with their sexy ladylike legs has a surreal and yet very realistic feel and I love the delicate, poetic colours. In her work Akiko Kobayakawa likes to combine different things like beauty and ugliness, male and female, animals and humans, and she explores the boundary between them and makes it ambiguous.

Looking and Touching

Elisa Noguera Lopez is a London based artist mainly working with photography, because of its ability to create images which contain multiple disjunctive narratives. In her photos objects and living things are stripped of instrumentality, functionality and identity, and she is fascinated by surfaces, shapes, materials and gestures as well as the relationship between looking and touching. I totally wants to keep looking and touching! Via Little Paper Planes.

Not so itsy bitsy tini wini

Fantastic bathing suits and caps cut and crafted out of beautiful Japanese paper by American artist Kristin Martincic. She grew up swimming and believes that being submerged makes us consider our bodies in new ways and affects how we navigate through space. She uses bathing suits and environments associated with water to reveal the fine line between public and private, intimacy and exposure, skin and clothing. Sure makes me think of the times when modesty required apparel to cover up more of the body, than now a days with all the itsy bitsy tini wini bikinis ... Via The Jealous Curator.

That time of the month ...

Not normally something I would celebrate, but when it comes to Le Parcel — a monthly delivery service for “that time of the month”— it would probarbly change a bit. I love the concept with the little extra gifts and chocolates (yeah, I know I'm easy) and Seven Fifty Five did a fantastic job with the packaging, the logotype design and the lovely colour palette. And so good to know that Le Parcel is always there for me!! Via Good Design Makes Me Happy.

A Question Of Eagles

Though I'm not sure I'm going to embrace this green-is-the-new-black-urban-garden-plant-thing, that's going on for the moment and just fill up my home with plants, because it's a thing, I cannot put my head on the block and say plants – never again! Especially not if I can put them in one of these absolutely amazing ceramics pieces by A Question of Eagles – pretty cool name by the way! – rather than the boring white flower pot I used to keep my rubber plant and yucca palm in, before they accidentally passed away because of either too much or too little watering.

Crush on Cushions and Curtains

Sounds boring? Well not when we're in the world of Italien artist Patrizio Di Massimo and his elements of decor! Inspired by The Lustful Turk – an old infamous erotic novel of the same name first published in 1828 – he freely explores the relationships between bodies and objecthood, politics and ornamentation, shame and desire. His use of cushions, tassels, lush colours and soft furnishings leaves interpretations of the possible relationships between subject and object wide open.
