free art friday...

2 weeks from today folks is free art friday...

i found out about this through will st ledger who i talked about on my last posting!

"January is a depressing month, even more so when it’s at the beginning of a recession. This city and it’s people need something to smile about again and we need you to help make it happen.

Free Art Friday is a relatively new art movement that’s rapidly gaining in popularity around the World. Artists create a painting, sketch, sculpture or installation and leave it on the street. The piece can then be picked up by anyone and claim it as their own. Finders are encouraged to email the artist and tell them how and where they found it. We’re asking all painters, photographers, illustrators, sculptures, graffiti artists, taggers, cartoonists or any visual artist to contribute a small piece of work that will be hung/placed/or left on the streets of Dublin on Friday 23rd January for anyone to take away."

its hard to forget the doom and gloom when i walk past this at least once everyday....

i like maser's work, will st leger i'm not so familiar with...some of maser's commissions in gallery's and offices have really worked well for him....would kill for a chance to commission this guy in one of my future designs...


enjoy the delights of the better months all year long...

i saw this and i just thought it was a little bit kooky and fun and uplifting...

following the success of rangemaster's 'floral collection' which was launched last spring, the 'butterfly collection' showcases 3 designs set to transform any busy kitchen into a calming sanctuary...

with the design trends appearing to hark for all things natural, all things bright and beautiful and all creatures great and small...rangemaster launches 3 mesmerising - yet very girly - designs...


maison & objet

an entire world of furniture, design, decor and upholstery fabrics will be there to be seen at Maison & Objet in Paris, January 23rg to 27th 2009...

...some of the trends for this years show look ahead to 2009/2010 homevalues, in a disorientated world wavering from crisis to crisis the home looks set to become now more than ever a safety value that leaves us dreaming of ways of better living...while we are all searching for anti-gloom remedies, Maison & Objet believe ''there is no miracle solution. But all kinds of creation, know-how and technologies, colours and whimsy, elegance and quality of life are distilling a new positive energy.''


Maison & Objet are offering members of the Interiors Association complimentary tickets. (For further information please see IA website.)
