“Each one of these tattoos on my right arm my son has drawn over the years. The first tattoo is from when he was 4; he is now 11. We add once a year from his drawings. The drawing on the fridge is a sword that he gave me in my Christmas card; that one will probably be added this summer. The only one that is a different size from the original is the robot, which we did last March when he turned 10. The first one was the daisy- I had it tattooed when he was in kindergarten. Then we went back and did his name and the house from when he was 4. When he was 6 we did the seahorse, and 7 was the maple leaf with the C for Canada. 8 was the stained glass, which is one of my favourites; it was his own abstract idea. The 9 year old one we skipped because he wanted to change the drawing a little bit.
I have had three different artists tattoo these drawings over the years: one in Boulder, Colorado, one in Chatham, and the most recent ones have been in Peterborough with my friend Tedd. Recently, my son was there with me and he did some of the tattooing himself. He loves it. No one I know has ever heard of tattooing original kid art before, and it’s a lot of fun. We will keep going until he doesn’t want to do it anymore. At this pace he is still very excited about it, so we’ll keep going. People ask me what will happen if I run out of space; I guess I’ll just get him to draw smaller pictures.” -Keith
These copper pipes, gears and steel railings are not from the interior of an ironclad battleship or WWI factory – they‘re part of the brilliant interior steampunk design of Truth Coffee‘s cafe in Cape Town.
The idea works in part because the coffee equipment used by Truth Coffee, with its various pipes and levers, already lends itself to a steampunk aesthetic. The cafe features authentic elements and accents like old bookcases, candlestick telephones, vintage typewriters, gas-masks and other gizmos and gadgets. Even the staff pictured wear popular steampunk elements like leather aprons, top-hats and goggles.
The interior design was dreamed up together with interior designer Haldane Martin, who was approached by Truth Coffee to design a cafe in keeping with their re-branding efforts. With cafes that look this much fun, I‘d say they‘re doing a good job!
Rooted in his fascination with cinematographic iconography, his thematics study the relationship between the individual and architecture. Some series study the relationship between fiction and reality. He is well known for his composition and color. Each one of Bohbot’s series features these photographic intentions — through their enigmatic atmosphere, documentary-style approach, and timeless feel, the photographer wants to transport the audience to a dreamy, velvety, and nearly infinite visual paradise.
As such, Franck Bohbot immortalizes courts, swimming pools, libraries, theaters, city streets, bars, museums, train stations, fairs, workers, artists, barbershop, night scene.
Thanks FRANCK for this stunning pictures!
“The need to be creative, the need to kind of explore ideas is a necessity, but to take away that would be to take away everything.” – INSA.
Inspired by our founder, George Ballantine, we believe in celebrating the men and women that stay true and leave an impression on everything they do and everyone they meet. Each Stay True Story captures individuals as they bring their own story to life performing creative and artistic experiments.
In late 2014 they travelled to Rio De Janeiro for the fourth global #StayTrue Story – with globally-renowned ‘GIF-ITI’ artist INSA. With a team of 20 they set out on a uniquely ambitious art project; to create the world’s largest animated GIF. The giant animated artwork – the most ambitious of its kind ever attempted – was painted on the ground in Rio in four stages, over four days, and measured a total of 57,515m2 (made up of four images measuring 14,379m2 each), with all the action captured in this film.
Staying True to his genesis as an artist but with a passion for experimentation and innovation, London based INSA is best known for creating ground-breaking ‘GIF-ITI’: amazing animations of his graffiti designs which culminate in looped GIFs – an innovative and labour-intensive process which requires him to repaint a design by hand many times, with each image changing slightly each time, before combining them to create a final GIF. INSA’s work has been displayed around the world, both at street level and in high profile exhibitions and media, including within London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate Britain.
– life in the city michael wolf’s photography is that of an outsider. born in germany, raised in the united states and canada, returning to germany to study photography before spending the vast majority of his career in asia, his work defies categorization. what distinguishes him from others is his acute ability to find the symbolic value in those seemingly insignificant details that so often go unnoticed. from this perspective, wolf has been able to produce a body of work, which deals with the more universal reality of contemporary city life.
