The Nude Label

The Nude Label is established by Clara Ropero and Ana Alemany to become an emerging underwear brand that approaches a women's intimate uniform in an odd but intriguingly in a conceptual way. Individualism and the expression of inner beauty is the emphasis on the minimalistic aesthetic on playing the role of being comfortable. %100 made in Spain made with best cotton and elastane  is the key for our times now...

Ho-Ryon Lee

Oil Paintings of Ho-Ryon Lee are totally breathtaking in appreciating the materials and subject he uses and capturing the sensual movements of a women while playing herself in flirtatious ways to a dedicated one...

He studied Painting in Hannam Univ. Daejon, South Korea and in Hong-Ik Univ in Seoul and recently goes to London College of Communication in London, UK for Photography. "The suggestive and overlapping images are based on actual photos taken by the artist and then painted on canvas." (Art Crush: Ho-Ryon Lee)

Aakash Nihalani

Mosque, 2011, paper tape on wall, New Delhi, India

Self- Portrait, 2009, paper tape on cardboard

Rainborough, 2008, paper tape on wall, Brooklyn, New York
 My dear friend Avni was so good at tape art that his casual works was blowing my mind! Aakash Nihalani goes way out of my reach though. His "Sum Series" are the smartest and coolest things I've seen in a while.

Mitsuko Nagone

"New Self, New To Self"

Mitsuko Nagone finds a different approach to portray self-portraits in this project of awkward mis en scene photography series. She believes that self can not be found but should be created. Here the viewer is truly drawn out from the individual space of the portrait where actually they could've been mistaken if it's captured differently.

Jayson Musson

"Halcyon Days"

He was one my favorite characters in Philadelphia! I remember meeting him and wishing that he can be my friend so I can have a blasting experience during my stay there. His sarcasm and attitude cracks my mind cause he has a very *badass way of saying "Black Like Me" (also was the name of his column in Philadelphia Weekly). I'm surprised to see his new artworks as he had a very different take on to this "black" attitude. He wove stacks of Coogi sweaters (we are familiar with the apparel brand as being Bill Cosby's favorite sweater in his show and rappers like The Notorious B.I.G populiarized the brand by calling "cool gangster/coogi") and called his exhibition's name Halcyon Days, where Halcyon bird  is known as a kingfisher that resides in sub-Saharan Africa and so is the name of the the bird in Greek legend that is now used as a term for peace or calmness. So you get the idea.

* You need to check out Jayson Musson's early works to see what kind of humor I'm talking about.
