Nikki Nye and Amy Flurry love paper. They’ve created Paper Cut Project, which has been really successful. They are working for brands such as Hermes, Cartier, Vogue, Christies. What do they do? Paper Wigs. Beautiful, intricate and eye-catching, these two ladies have taken the use of paper to another level. I love that it works in both black or white paper. The masks of animals are also very beautiful.
They also participated in the Hollywood Costume exhibition that was on the V&A a couple of weeks ago in London. I think that the pieces are stunning and recommend having a look at their website.

What is the real thing? Where am I living? What do I perceive is the real?
This is just a piece of the artist’s statement.

Yunwoo Choi works with magazines, newspapers creating these ephemeral shapes that hang in the space of a gallery. This artist loves big scale pieces and you can walk them or get lost into this abstract shape. I find all the pieces fascinating and you can spend hours just looking at them.

AJ Fosik has a new fan. Myself.
I have a tiny obsession with masks. I have my own personal collection that my husband hates, he really hates them. But I adore them, I´ve been collecting masks around the world over the years. Anyway, that is why I love what this artist does. Look at the colours, the shapes, they are fantastic. I want one (or two).

Colombian but living in Miami, Federico Uribe has a very distinctive way of seeing things. I recently discovered his artwork and I must say it is fascinating. He uses objects like shoe laces, pencils, screws, pieces of material, to create sculptures or 3D images. I love his unique style, very quirky and particular. A friend of mine introduced him to me saying “I envy like a child that his artwork is not mine”. I think I can say the same….

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is exhibiting a range of Hollywood Costumes from the most famous films of all time. It is definitely worth going, but I strongly recommend you get tickets in advance because they are almost sold out every day.

Beautiful gowns are exhibited, like the one Scarlet O’Hara used in “Gone with the Wind” or the beautiful dresses from “Elizabeth” or “Marie Antoinette”. There are classic costumes used by people like Russell Crowe in “Gladiator” or “Ben Hur”, what Harrison Ford wore in “Indiana Jones” or the amazing costume of Darth Vader. Other classics include the black dress of Audrey in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or “My Fair Lady”, two more from “Titanic”, “Moulin Rouge”, Batman and Catwoman, to the whole Addams Family. My favourites were Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz” and Marilyn’s stunning white dress, oh god she had a figure.

Don’t miss it, it will be on until January 27th.

I´m not a huge fan of ceramics but this really caught my eye. Sarah Grove has turned ceramics into something else – each element is gorgeous, perfect. The pieces are really nice for the house. The idea is that they look like they are made of clothes, I love them. She was exhibiting at Wimbledon Open Art Show with me this weekend when I discovered her work. You should have a look at her products or go to the next exhibition she is in.
