This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Kids

Welcome More than 400 invited guests attended the opening event of The Art Hunter in Sydney on Tuesday night. The Art Hunter launch is a collaboration between The Cool Hunter and Jaguar, and the opening night was also the Australian debut of the spectacular Jaguar C-X17 concept car. To present The Art Hunter, we engaged our dream team of collaborators, led by the incomparable Natalie Longeon and Peter Pengly from The Artistry (they designed and executed our Summer Lovers Rotate store as well), to transform a 500 m2 warehouse in Alexandria into a genuinely exciting, temporary three-week art exhibition experience. The Art Hunter is not a white-walled space where you quietly walk past pieces of art. Instead, it is an eclectic and vibrant environment where every wall is a different color (by our paint sponsor Taubmans), where there is no natural light and where the work of more than 40 artists, curated by us, is not only on display but also for sale.
We've redesigned our packaging now that we have a hot foil letterpress, a rubber stamp maker, and a die cutting machine. The new (and sturdier) boxes are pressed with the new Wary Meyers logotype, then rubber stamped with all the type, then stuck with two stickers we made- one a cloud (or water), the other a sun (or moon). The cloud/moons are made of foil stickers (except in the case of Mainely Manly, where it's grey; and the moons are non-foil (except MM, where it's copper foil). These same stickers are then put on the candle jar, and everything looks fantastic. New scents include Hippie Hollow- a vetiver lemon scent, Brasilia- a rosewood musk scent, and Violet Pepper.

dear ada It's been nearly 5 years since I began writing dear ada. Some 3,100+ posts later, I find myself at a crossroad. What started out as a love letter to a dear friend, over time has also became a personal exploration and celebration of amazing art and artists throughout the world. This blog has turned out to be a wonderful journey where I've "met" such lovely people, all of whom share a deep love and appreciation for art in the world. It has been such a joyful ride. Also, in the process of writing dear ada, I found a new energy and desire to make art again.

WebUrbanist | From Urban Art & 3D Graffiti to Abandoned Cities What would your city look like if it went completely dark? Words like majestic, awe-inspiring and magical come to mind - not as descriptions for the cities themselves, but how some of their most iconic architecture would look as black silhouettes against the bright starry skies of remote places. Artist Thierry Cohen gives us an idea of just who amazing these visuals would be in his series, 'Darkened Cities.'
