Inspired – Photodido

Photodido is a smart collaboration between the artists Sandra and Geda. Sandra studied in Lithuanian Accademy of Cinema and Theater and graduated from Animated Visual Arts. Geda is a professional photographer and graduate of Vilnius Art Academy.

It’s not a surprise that from these 2 brilliant minds came out this beautiful creative project. Their artworks are a mix and match of collage, installation and sculpture. It looks like that each piece came out from a tiny nostalgic time capsule that recalls a puppet theatre.

You can also find them on Etsy.

Inspired – Karin van der Linden

Enjoy the beautiful artworks by the textile artist Karin van der Linden. Her pieces are a clever combined mix of embroidery, sculpture, installation and mixed media collage. The aesthetic is impeccable and incredibly poetic.

I didn’t find so much insights about her art research, but these are some words from one of her exhibition called Remember Me:

The exhibition, and the piece of work highlighted in it, “Remember Me” is based on memories of my mother, my grandmother and my own past. The mostly orphaned materials that I have used give an extra explanation.

My mother was born in a monastery in Krefeld where my grandfather and grandmother at the time, forced by circumstances, lived. She lived there with her brother for the first 12 years of her life. A period that determined the rest of her life.

The front of the piece shows embroidery, supplemented with photos and objects from that time. In my childhood, during the holidays, I regularly visited monasteries related to my mother’s past. Photos of this are shown on the back of the workpiece. In addition to the memories, the work also portrays a dark, laden atmosphere.

Caroline Liu Art

I am blown away the by colourful art world the the American artist Caroline Liu. She is a multi talented artist, her works includes paintings, soft sculptures, murals and installations.

The best part is that each piece can be seen together and still have sense, I would love to see live an immersive exhibition with all her stuff, it looks like a dream!

You can also find her official website here.

Cyril Lancelin Installations

I am amazed by the immersive sculptural installations by the French artist Cyril Lancelin, aka “Town and Concrete“.

I enjoy the geometric repetition presented in such a wonderful way, with these surreal 3D pieces that allows people to explore them inside out.

I wish to have the chance to experience these works in real life!

You can check more fab works on his website, and follow him on Instagram here.

Ulla-Stina Wikander Art

Amazing!

Enjoy the cross stitched sculpture installations by the Swedish artist Ulla-Stina Wikander.

Each piece is composed of obsolete vintage objects that the artist find in flea markets, and then she entirely covers up with intricate cross stitched embroidery, giving them a brand new life.

You can also find her on Instagram.

Inspired – Clare Celeste Börsch

Inspired – Victoria Villasana

So inspired!

I love the amazing textile art by the Mexican artist Victoria Villasana. Her colours combination, and the installation final pieces are simply stunning.

You can follow her on Instagram.

Kirstin Lamb – Colorful Installations

Pop and bright!

I really enjoyed the amazing installations by The American artist Kirstin Lamb.

As a lover and collector of vintage ephemera of any kind, Kristin recreates that sense of retro style into her paintings, in both of her abstract and portraits works. After that, she arranges each art piece into a room, creating beautiful and colorful installations of paintings that “speak” to each other.

You can find Kristin on Facebook and Instagram too.

Ekaterina Panikanova – Paintings On Books

Dreamy!

The Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova realises unique installation-paintings with a collage twist. The artist paints beautiful black ink and acrylics illustrations using as a canvas plenty of vintage found book pages.

These books are mounted on board, and the final result is a kind of collage-patchwork of pages that showcase a giant final image. You can also check her works here and here.
