Supermodel Kate Moss in Nick Knight’s “Diamonds”
(click HERE for video)
–Follow Nick Knight’s lens as it snoops from one Madison Avenue skyscraper to another, documenting supermodel Kate Moss in voyeuristic action in this unique fashion film. The footage is set against an eavesdropped telephone conversation between Moss and artist Sarah Morris about exactly where Johnny Depp hid her diamond necklace, in this exploration of celebrity and privacy. VIDEO
Moss and Depp? I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during the rest of that conversation…
As for the diamond necklace, kinda makes you wonder what sort of goods we’re talking about here. Only the parties involved know for sure.
Well, them and any peeping Toms who might have also been snooping in Kate’s window that night. ~vK

Illinois based conceptual artist and designer, Chad Wys recently unveiled a fantastic new collection of mixed media artwork titled, “Never Closer Than Now”. Wys brilliantly re-imagines old paintings and sculptures to create this series of cleverly infused pieces.
Check out some of his work below.
On his website, Wys writes, “A major strand throughout much of my artwork, beyond the broader inquirers into what art means socially, is the notion of object: object ownership, objectification of history, objectification of people, objectification of artwork and its many mediums; objectification of aesthetic pleasure; etc. I often explore/exploit the idea of objecthood: how we decorate our lives with arbitrary, as well as meaningful, things; how we objectify the ones we love and the strangers we see; how we objectify pain and death; how we objectify complex and sensitive cultural histories … My artwork is also, at its core, an experimentation in composition, color, and form. Through a variety of mixed media I have chosen as my inspiration a color palette that is at times complimentary and at other times purposfully contradictory, or seemingly destructive. The literal destruction of an object is secondary, in my mind, to the overall effect created by color (dis)harmony and the overall aesthetic-emotional experience of the reclaimed and reinvented object.” - Chad Wys, 2012

Folks are finally making their way home to civilization after back to back weekends at the music-filled, sun-drenched festival that is Coachella. Covered in dust and relentless sunburns, their tales of hash desert life makes one appreciate proper attention given to better traveling accommodations.
Maybe next year, people will have gotten hip to Coachella Safari Tents, a super cute tent lodging community that gives guests a break from the scorching heat while remaining close to all the action. For $6,500 (totally worth it, ask your sunburn…), Coachella-goers can stay in an air-conditioned, fully-furnished Shikar-style safari tent. The VIP accommodations feature private check-in to the festival, golf cart shuttle to the stages and back, exclusive access to restrooms and showers, breakfast and late night snacks, on-site concierge, security, private pool, spa massages, and electrical outlets.
Camping never sounded so fabulous!
Plan early for next year, check out the link HERE for details on how to score a tent for next year’s event. ~vK
In a brilliant collaboration presented by SHOWStudio, couturier Iris van Herpen teamed up with fashion film photographer Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness an innovative project called Sonomorphic Mirror. Popular for streaming live broadcast videos during art and fashion installments, SHOW covered the week long shoot of Guinness being splashed with buckets of clear and black colored water to uses as inspiration for a Crystallization dress designed by van Herpen. The fluidic chaos of the water served as both the vision for the final design, as well as the source of footage for the hypnotic video that accompanies the piece.
Iris Van Herpen’s dress will be viewable to the public in SHOWstudio’s recently launched gallery venture, the SHOWcabinet, from June. The outcome of the project will be presented this autumn at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
Incredible piece. I would love to see this in person.

Opening [April 11, 2013] at the esteemed Blum & Poe Gallery in LA is an amazing show of breathtaking new artwork—including monumental-scale paintings and sculptures—by Japanese Pop master Takashi Murakami. Titled “Ahrat,” the cycle of paintings on view continues Murakami’s newest mode of painting, developed for his exhibition “Ego,” mounted in Doha, Qatar in early 2012. The Arhat paintings conflate historical, contemporary, and futuristic Japanese references with a myriad of styles, methodologies, and forms into single picture planes. The artist’s long-standing interest in Japanese nihonga painting and the contemporary practices of manga and animation are highlighted in this important body of work.
Arhat, which derives its name from the ancient language of Sanskrit, translates to “a being who has achieved a state of enlightenment.” The largest gallery contains three imposingly scaled paintings measuring between eighteen and thirty-five feet in length, whose source imagery is drawn from an ancient tale of Buddhist monks confronting decay and death. Demonic monsters and decrepit monks in traditional robes and paraphernalia wander psychedelic landscapes. Standing tall and center amongst these large paintings is a monumental new golden sculpture depicting a massive skull enveloped in flames, whose antecedents can be found in Buddhist statuary located in temples throughout Japan.
