LoV-Ely Work

PRINTS BY LORENA VIGIL-ESCALERA (AKA LoV-E)

Immediately engaging, the work of Lorena Vigil-Escalera recalls the style of 60’s storybook illustrations and Blue Note album covers, then gives it a modern kick. Shop prints on her website, or take her art everywhere with a Poolga wallpaper.

THE INCREDIBLE ORIGAMI OF ROMAN DIAZ

I’ve been mildly obsessed with Origami since grade school, but the paper craft of Roman Diaz is some of the finest I’ve seen. There’s almost a sense of softness to it, be it the texture or structure, which lends an organic quality to his creations. See more of his pieces onĀ flickr.

Art with Heart

These prints are only a few of the many available from The Working Proof, an online offering that endeavors to promote social responsibility through the creations of emerging artists. A charity of the artists’ choice is awarded 15% of the sale of each piece, and introduces them to a new body of supporters through the appreciation of art.

The Time is Now

“The sense of possibility so necessary for success comes, not just from inside of us or from our parents, it comes from our TIME. From the particular opportunities that our particular place in history presents us with.”

MALCOM GLADWELL, from Outliers, The Story of Success
