An inspiring artist combining sketch & sculpture by David Oliveira from Lisbon. He’s approach to your daily sketchbook doodling and techniques to mold these hard wires that they look soft and organic  is just amazing !

In a glance it looks like an edited photo of a chair with a sketch on top of it…


Still not believing it’s 3D but now you start to see dimensions and shadows…


It’s really a 3D sketch !

One of my favorite painter is my own friend Song Yue from Xian, China. He had an exhibition at the Synergy building, Jakarta. I love his abstract painting that brings depth of layers , texture and colors. He never really give them tittle and I don’t think it needs any. Leave it to the imagination what these brushes will tell.

Last night as I was browsing and looking for image references, I end up making a mood board for another story I will tittle : The Black Riding Hood. On this project I would like to combine story telling, character building, illustration and fashion within the package. I’m really excited to proceed with this and see what will happen =)

All the images comes from Fashionary mood blog, I just took what I really like and somehow a mood board &  story concept is born =) So tune in for illustrations on the character & settings.

Thanks for EYE.Fashionary !!  Don’t know them yet ? then CHECK IT OUT !!

Arrington is an artist & musician from Olympia, Washington USA that brought Indonesian influence to his music and formed a band called Malaikat & Singa ( Angels and Lions ). He arrived to Jakarta last week and had a spontaneous  gig at Ruang Rupa. I bought a CD and a print book, here a sneak peak of it =)

Arrington is in Yogjakarta at the moment perhaps exploring creative & experimental possibilities and he will be touring with his local band soon =) So if you’re in Indonesia …  heads up !! He might come to your town !

I stumbled into his work about 2 years ago when I was doing a research to create an internal trend presentation. I love the way he would just use regular cardboard and whack it into a dimensional frenzy it reminded me that art is all about the imagination not the material. There’s a sense of harmony within his geometrical chaos with twisted perspective realm.

Few months ago my friend Zahir came to Jakarta & Bandung with his fellow Singaporean artists to work on some walls. It was a fun week of hanging out and just watching them have a painting frenzy. This was taken in Badung at an empty lot in Dago atas area.

I’ve always respected artist who is able to up-cycle or re-use existing material and turn in into a work of art. I also happen to love craft works or anything hand made. Brian has given old books a new breath of life with his intricate carvings … it is mind blowing !!!

Check out his exclusive interview at The Book Surgeon or  check out his website Brian Dettmer

Whenever you visit Bandung, check out the Mural park under the Pasupati flyover bridge. My friend Eweng has been working on these neon colored awesomeness for about 2 years. The dream is to add UV light at night … pretty psychedelic stuff here =)
