rune guneriussen

these photos borrowed from the thejealouscurator.com are of rune guneriussen’s enchanting installations:  evolution # 03 & downfall. guneriussen; a conceptual artist born in norway, studied in surrey,uk and now lives in oslo works mostly in nature which i love, the installations are very rarely seen by the public in person, they are photographed to “represent the reality of the installation itself”evolution # 02

bindi booth

bindi booth’s detailed and often collaged illustrations make you want to look more closely and enjoy the thought gone into each piece. i also really like her general theme as believe it or not i am a girl and i like fashion ( : bindi lives down under in oz and says that she gets a lot of inspiration from trawling through antique and vintage shops as well as keeping up to date on fashion trends. check out her lovely website at: http://www.bindibooth.com

vyner st


whilst in london i have discovered through my work placement at keeler gordon that vyner street galleries and studios open their doors the first thursdays of every month to the public. some would say they only attend for the free nibbles and booze but it was a great turnout with a wonderful atmosphere. next time im down london town i will make sure it falls on the first thursday of the month! here are some photos of some of my favourite bits, and trying to capture the atmosphere..unfortunately with a free beer in each hand it was difficult to note down the artists above but great stuffs guy! ps. yummy cheap bbq too!
