“My inspiration has and continues to be my children and the journey of motherhood. Each day brings new joys and challenges - both of which inspire my creativity.  My expression is through abstract painting where it’s free from definition but rich in meaning.  I believe the beauty of abstract art is that it encourages one to think from a different perspective to truly understand the motivation behind the work.” - Ursula LyonStop by our store on Greenwich Avenue tonight 6-8pm for a night of fashion and art hosted by Hayley Levine and artist, Ursula Lyon.

OK, hold the phone…how amazing is this inflated/deflated project by Chicago-based creatives Jillian, Lauren and Kady?!

The girls take humorous quotes and heartfelt feelings, write them on the surface of inflated balloons, then let the air out — leaving what you see here. We love it!

We find artist Agathe de Bailliencourt’s work to be so perfectly imperfect! Love her use of bold, bright and beautiful colors and the way that they just seem to come together and dance all over the canvas. Yes, we are suckers for pink, but the style in which she combines it with blues, greens, yellows and even white is oh so inspiring!

Um, how cool is this?! Urban land artist, Jorge Rodrigues-Gerada, has officially created the largest portrait ever. Bigger than a football field! Oh and it gets better - the piece was created to promote women’s rights for Amsterdam’s “Open Your Eyes” campaign. Girl power!

We are loving these vintage paper collages by artist Ben Giles.  He describes as almost screen shots for films that the viewer has to imagine or are sets to an existing film that never aired.  The collages are fanciful, thoughtful, and inspiring.  This up and coming artist is only 19 years old with a bright future ahead.  You can purchase prints of his collages here.

How incredible are these photographs from Laurent Chehere? In his series Flying Houses, Chehere takes his existing photographs of various housing structures and creates the illusion they are permanently suspended in the sky. So Magical! We just hope whoever lives inside each house isn’t scared of heights!

These fanciful sculptures were created by Nashville based artist Herb Williams.  The secret to his creations is that they are made entirely of thousands of colorful Crayola crayons.  We love the idea that something we all have used as drawing tools from childhood can be transformed into unexpected works of art.  To view more of Herb Williams art go to http://www.herbwilliamsart.com/.
