Luna</a> captures the vibrant energy and determination of women who express solidarity and strength through a love of skateboarding. Part of her series <em>Cholitas Bravas, </em>&#8220;Cholitas Skaters&#8221; focuses on a group of Indigenous Bolivian women who wear traditional clothes while practicing extreme sports. &#8220;I&#8217;ve always admired brave women and culture; it&#8217;s in my DNA,&#8221; she says, describing that her upbringing by a single mother in the Andes Mountains of neighboring Peru instilled an admiration for courage and perseverance.</p> <p>As recently as the last two decades, Bolivia&#8217;s Indigenous Quechua and Aymara women, known derogatorily as &#8220;cholitas,&#8221; were marginalized and ostracized from society. Distinguished by their long braids, wide skirts, and bowler hats—an amalgamation of styles resulting from Spanish colonizers forcing Indigenous people to adopt European styles during the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Inquisition</a>—the style evolved into a <a href="https://www.bolivianlife.com/cholita-fashion-bowler-hats-and-sexy-ankles/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">symbol-rich</a>, empowered look.</p> <p>Indigenous Bolivian women were historically banned from entering some public spaces, could not use public transportation, and were burdened by extremely curtailed career opportunities. They have been advocating for their civil rights since the mid-20th century, but it wasn&#8217;t until the election of the nation&#8217;s first Indigenous president in 2006 that the Cholitas finally achieved some success in restoring their rights, and the pleated skirts, lace blouses, and <em>sombreros </em>prevail as emblems of their cultural roots.</p> <p>Luna tells Colossal that the women&#8217;s choice to don traditional apparel is for &#8220;some of them in honor of their ancestors and some of them because that&#8217;s what they wear in their everyday life. I was taken by their courage and their love for their culture, and I wanted to capture that.&#8221; Her portraits highlight each individual as she skates around the park, gathers together with the group, and poses with her board as she gazes commandingly at the viewer.</p> <p>&#8220;Cholitas Skaters&#8221; is one of a trio of sub-series that comprise <em>Cholitas Bravas; </em>the other two chapters focus on female rock climbers and wrestlers.

After working in auction houses and art galleries in New York City, Devon strived for a more creative outlet and started to paint in her off time, producing floral still life paintings rendered in oil pastels, oil paints, and acrylic. Devon hopes to have art for everyone, from light and uplifting subjects like florals and friendly portraits to more political &#8220;wearable art&#8221; from her &#8220;Where Are the Women?&#8221; sweatshirt line that addresses problems surrounding women&#8217;s representation in US politics.</p> <p>Often complete with simple and sleek wooden frames, Devon&#8217;s affectionately named &#8220;little guy&#8221; paintings and graphic prints offer multiple ways to enjoy her warm and engaging artwork. Devon received her BFA in painting from the University of Virginia and has exhibited at The Other Art Fair, Brooklyn, and will be showing her work at <a href="https://www.theotherartfair.com/london/">The Other Art Fair, London</a>, in March 2023. Her recent paintings are on view at Danny Meyer&#8217;s iconic Union Square Cafe in Manhattan.</p> <h2><b>Tell us about who you are and what you do. What&#8217;s your background?</b></h2> <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>My name is Devon Grimes, and I am a Brooklyn-based painter. I was born and raised in Virginia. I have a degree in Oil Painting (focusing on portraiture) from the University of Virginia. I moved up to NYC for a sales internship at David Zwirner with the intention of working in galleries (to the dismay of my painting professors). After two art internships and about two years working at a startup outside of the arts, I moved back into the creative world when I started working in floral design. From there, I worked on floral installations and set styling for about eight years before returning to painting full-time during the pandemic. A lot of my work over the past decade has been floral-based, influenced by my career at the time.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2><b>What does your work aim to say? What are the major themes you pursue in your work? Can you share an example of a work that demonstrates this?</b></h2> <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>My work is based on everyday observations and interactions. I&#8217;ve always been heavily moved by human faces and bright, playful colors. To me, there is nothing more fascinating than the people we surround ourselves with, which is why I gravitate toward painting portraits. When people haven&#8217;t been readily available, I&#8217;ve found floral arrangements and food make for interesting alternatives. One of my favorite recent portraits is that of my stepmom&#8217;s sister and her 6-month-old baby, &#8220;Kathryn and Liam&#8221; (36 x 48 inches, acrylic on canvas).</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2><b>Can you walk us through your process for creating a work from beginning to end?</b></h2> <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>I&#8217;ve always worked very fast. I&#8217;ve never had a lot of interest in mulling over a work. I typically have an idea of what or who I want to paint and what colors I want to use first. Then I let the idea sit in my head for a while, where I visualize it until I feel like I have to get it out of my system. I then complete the painting in one or two goes- typically within a few days. I have, in the past, gone back and reworked paintings but only after letting them sit for a year or more. For commissions, it&#8217;s a longer process that includes a round of mockup paintings and sometimes a revision of the final work, which is a much longer and more involved process.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2>Who are your biggest influences, and why?</h2> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>My biggest influence is Alice Neel. When I was learning to paint in college, my advisor sat me down and told me that I have a strong liking for Neel&#8217;s works, of which I was unfamiliar. He gave me a number of print-outs of her paintings, and for the first time, I felt like my work was not &#8220;wrong&#8221; or &#8220;weird&#8221; but that it was naturally and instinctively grounded in a broader context that established and successful artists (like Neel) explored. I find other inspiration in works by Lucian Freud, Egon Schiele, Henri Matisse&#8217;s still-lifes, and living contemporary artists like Jordan Casteel and Karyn Lyons.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2>How does your work comment on current social and political issues?</h2> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>My work reflects my everyday interests and what is immediately in front of me. I would not say my works make explicit political or social commentary- rather, I look at my work as mirrors of my somewhat-ordinary reality. Throughout history, studies of the every day have acted as important accounts of the time they were made. I hope that when I&#8217;m 90 and looking back, my works reflect the changes in the world I lived in, all undoubtedly impacted by societal, political, and cultural issues throughout my lifetime.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2>How do you hope viewers respond to your works? What do you want them to feel?</h2> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The most common feedback I receive from the public is that my work makes them happy- that the colors, shapes, and looseness of the paintings bring a lot of lightness to those viewing them. I think my greatest wish for my works is that they make the viewer feel a strong sensation in their gut, whether it&#8217;s happiness or otherwise. I want my works to spark a feeling that stays with the viewer indefinitely (which is a big ask as, on average, people move on from viewing a work after approximately 17 seconds). I would like my paintings to be overwhelmingly evocative, even if the emotion that arises is unpleasant. It&#8217;s less important for me to have people love my works than it is for me to know that my paintings make a strong and lasting impression- that they strike a conversation that viewers want to engage with.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2>If you couldn&#8217;t be an artist, what would you do?</h2> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>If I couldn&#8217;t be an artist, I would be a doctor. I&#8217;m completely fascinated by medical discoveries and how the human body works. I feel like doctors are artistic by nature- to be a doctor, you have to see both the minute and whole details of a person to address their ailments, both inquisitive and discerning.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <h2>What was the best advice given to you as an artist?</h2> <div class="page" title="Page 3"> <div class="section"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>When I was 21 years old and interning at David Zwirner, I ran an errand for the artist Christopher Williams who, upon my return, said to me, &#8220;What are you doing here, behind a desk? Quit the gallery world as soon as possible and never look back. You&#8217;ll never ever be happy in a traditional job. You&#8217;re an artist.

The previous and discontinued Montblanc Meisterstück 149 was fitted with a Calligraphy Flexible Nib (MB119699). I still remember being tempted to get that pen but decided otherwise because I'm don't actually enjoy using <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/tags/flexible-nib">flexible nibs</a> for drawing. That saved me a lot of money.</p> <p>This Montblanc pen that I have for review actually belongs to my fellow artist friend <a href="https://www.instagram.com/annuendo/">Annabella</a>. I lent her some of my <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/content/sailor-specialty-nib-new-2018-vs-old-pre-2016">Sailor Specialty Nibs</a> and she lent me this. I only got to know of this pen's existence through her post on the local <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/singaporefpl/">Singapore Fountain Pen Lovers</a> Facebook group.</p> <p>The official retail price of this pen is <b>US $1055</b> and here in Singapore it's <b>SGD 1460</b> (with tax). And below's the marketing text from Montblanc's website:</p> <blockquote><p>Montblanc Meisterstück 149 Gold-coated collection is a design that writes history. Introduced in 1924, a word meaning “Masterpiece,” the Meisterstück has become one of the symbol for high quality luxury. The cap and barrel are crafted in black precious resin featuring the iconic white Montblanc emblem inlaid in the cap top. The fountain pen is crowned with the innovative curved nib, hand-crafted in Au750 / 18K solid gold and garnished with three delicate parallel lines; a symbol inspired by calligraphy movements. The curved nib allows a variety of writing styles and line widths, depending on the angle and the orientation at which the writing instrument is held.</p></blockquote> <p><b>My perspective</b><br /> <b>My review is from the perspective of an artist</b>. I use fountain pens for drawing and I have <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/tags/fountain-pen-reviews">reviewed many fountain pens</a> on my blog over the years. The pens I'm interested in are those with nibs that can produce line variations. I don't create calligraphy or calligraphy art. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-zoom-05.jpg" /><br /> A Montblanc to me is a pen for collectors due to its high pricing. How is a <a href="https://www.montblanc.com/en-us/fountain-pens_cod34480784411799067.html">Montblanc Meisterstück 149 with standard F, M or B nib</a> US $975 when you can find cheaper pens with black resin body designs, gold nib and gold plated cap and trimmings that sell for less? Branding, obviously, is why a Montblanc is more expensive. </p> <h3>Bottom line</h3> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-146-calligraphy-curved-nib-drawing-02.jpg" /><br /> Montblanc Meisterstück 149 is a beautiful pen with a huge 18K gold Calligraphy Curved Nib that can produce line variations depending on how the pen is held. The line variations are not as expressive compared to a <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/picture/comparison-of-fude-nib-fountain-pens-drawing">fude nib fountain pen</a> though when you don't pay attention to how the pen is held.</p> <p>It definitely feels quite satisfying to draw with such a pricy and gorgeous pen. Whether it's worth the money is really subjective -- <a href="https://youtu.be/GcjSKjn1PMk">see this video</a>. Anyway, if you think it's worth the price, it is. If not, it's not. </p> <p>There's no mention on whether this is a limited edition nib, but chances are it's probably is. The previous Calligraphy Flexible Nib was limited and has been discontinued. I suppose this pen should hold its value well should you need to sell it in the future for whatever reason. </p> <p>The only downside is the company used a sticker as one of the design elements on the pen. </p> <h3>Things included</h3> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-01.jpg" /><br /> That's the packaging box with the calligraphy strokes as design. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-02.jpg" /><br /> This is the flip cover box the pen is in.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-03.jpg" /><br /> The overall presentation is nice. This is nicer than <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/content/review-sailor-cross-concord-specialty-nib-fountain-pen">the box that expensive Sailor fountain pens come with</a>.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-04.jpg" /><br /> Included in the box are the pen, warranty and servicing info and a manual on usage.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-05.jpg" /><br /> The box has felt coated on the inner sides. The pen holder can be removed so you can actually reuse the box to hold other items. </p> <p>What would be really cool is for someone to make a multi-piece pen holder than can fit into this Montblanc box. </p> <h3>Design</h3> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-06.jpg" /><br /> Here's a size comparison with other fountain pens I have, namely:</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/picture/review-pilot-custom-743-falcon-nib">Pilot Custom 743</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/content/review-platinum-3776-music-nib-fountain-pen">Platinum 3776</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/picture/review-sailor-1911-music-nib-fountain-pen">Sailor 1911</a></li> <li>Montblanc Meisterstück 149</li> </ul> <p>The Montblanc Meisterstück 149 is a noticeably bigger pen. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-08.jpg" /><br /> The design is almost cigar-shape and it's a comfortable pen to hold. The pen measures 14.7 x 1.7cm (5.80 by 0.68 inches) and weights 39.87g.</p> <p>The body is made with high gloss black resin, or as Montblanc calls it "black precious resin".</p> <p>All the metallic parts are gold-plated.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-10.jpg" /><br /> The iconic white Montblanc emblem is inlaid in the cap top. The white snowcap symbolises the peak of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Blanc">Mont Blanc mountain</a> with its six glacier valleys.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-curved-nib-sticker-01.jpg" /><br /> This looks like a piece of sticker to me. When I run my hand over, I don't feel the texture of the lines because the lines aren't carved. I could also see some paint flaking off the surface.</p> <p>This is definitely not acceptable for a luxury pen at such high pricing. A sticker will wear down with usage. This is glaring mistake on design. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-07.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-14.jpg" /><br /> That sticker will only align with the pen clip in one of three positions when you screw the cap back on. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-09.jpg" /><br /> This pen does look very classy.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-11.jpg" /><br /> The words on the cap ring are "Montblanc Meisterstück No. 149" in uppercase.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-13.jpg" /><br /> Filling this fountain pen with ink involves turning the end. The refilling mechanism probably uses a piston. There's a translucent section near the screw threads where you can see how much ink is left. </p> <p>This pen does hold a good amount of ink and it has to since this pen uses a lot of ink.</p> <h3>The nib</h3> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-zoom-01.jpg" /><br /> The Calligraphy Curved Nib is the main selling point of this pen. Without this nib, I won't even consider getting a Montblanc with a F, M or B nib. </p> <p>The beautiful nib is hand-crafted in Au750 / 18K gold and adorned with three parallel lines inspired by calligraphy. There are also carvings inside the parallel lines. </p> <p>This is a big nib that measures 2.75cm (1.08 inches). </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-zoom-02.jpg" /><br /> On the nib you'll also see the number 4810 engraved which represents the height of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Blanc">Mont Blanc mountain</a>. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-zoom-03.jpg" /><br /> The ink flow is really good.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-zoom-04.jpg" /><br /> I'm not sure what the feed is made of. I did not dismantle the pen for the fear of not being able to put the pen together again, and it's not my pen. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-gold-tip-01.jpg" width="500" /><br /> The broad side looks like a 45 degree angle. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-gold-tip-02.jpg" width="500" /><br /> Interestingly, the gold colour does not extend all the way to the tip of the nib.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-gold-tip-03.jpg" width="500" /><br /> All the edges are curved.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-gold-tip-04.jpg" width="500" /><br /> This point can be used for drawing thin lines or dots.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-handwriting-04.jpg" /><br /> These are the lines you can create with the nib.</p> <ol> <li>Writing on the reversed with the tip produces very thin lines</li> <li>Writing with the pen at a tilted but upright angle</li> <li>Writing with the pen at 45 degrees</li> <li>Writing without paying special attention to the angle of the pen</li> </ol> <p>Ink flow is fantastic and is able to keep up even with the broadest stroke. Do note that the more ink there is on the paper, the more time it takes for the ink to dry.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-handwriting-01.jpg" /><br /> This was written with the nib upside down using the point.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-handwriting-02.jpg" /><br /> This was written with the pen at a tilted but upright angle.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-calligraphy-curved-nib-handwriting-03.jpg" /><br /> This was written using the broad side.</p> <p>This pen is probably more suited for people write big as the line width will be medium to extra broad unless you hold the pen more vertically to make the lines thinner. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-curved-nib-asian-calligraphy-01.jpg" /><br /> These are Chinese characters.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-curved-nib-asian-calligraphy-02.jpg" /><br /> These are Japanese characters.</p> <p>The pen nib is good enough for writing Asian calligraphy although the strokes don't really taper. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-149-curved-nib-city-sketch-01.jpg" /><br /> Here's a quick sketch I drew with the pen. You don't really have to pay special attention to how the pen is held when drawing unless you want to create specific lines, e.g. extra thin or extra thick lines. You will get some line variation with your usual hand movement. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-146-calligraphy-curved-nib-drawing-03.jpg" /><br /> For this sketch, I held the pen more vertically to draw the thinner lines. The ink blobs I used to represent the windows were drawn with the broad side.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-146-calligraphy-curved-nib-drawing-05.jpg" /><br /> The broad side of the nib is good for drawing thick lines, in this case it's convenient to draw thick horizontal windows.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-146-calligraphy-curved-nib-drawing-04.jpg" /><br /> You can turn the nib over to use the extra thin lines for hatching. The broad nib can be used for cover large areas with ink. </p> <h3>How it compare with the Sailor specialty nibs?</h3> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/sailor-cross-emperor-04.jpg" width="500" /><br /> The <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/picture/review-sailor-cross-emperor-nib-fountain-pen">Sailor Cross Nib</a> (above) is probably the equivalent of the Montblanc Calligraphy Curved nib. The broad end of the Montblanc is slightly thicker that's all. </p> <h3>How it compare with a fude nib?</h3> <p>A fude nib is a bent nib with a broad side and can create the same line variations as the Montblanc Calligraphy Curved Nib.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-curved-nib-vs-fude-01b.jpg" width="500" /><br /> The boxes above were drawn with the Montblanc and those below were from a cheap <a href="https://www.parkablogs.com/picture/review-sailor-my-first-fountain-pen">Sailor My First Pen</a>. </p> <p>I did not pay special attention to how the pen was held while drawing those boxes. When drawing normally, the fude nib can produce more noticeable line variation compared to the Montblanc. The ink flow with the cheap Sailor fountain pen wasn't as good though. </p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-curved-nib-vs-fude-03.jpg" width="500" /><br /> This was drawn with the Montblanc.</p> <p><img src="https://www.parkablogs.com/sites/default/files/2023/montblanc-curved-nib-vs-fude-02.jpg" width="500" /><br /> This was drawn with the fude nib. Again the line variation is more noticeable and obvious compared to the Montblanc. The ink flow isn't as good so the lines are not as dark as those from the Montblanc even though I used the same black ink. </p> <p>While the Montblanc Calligraphy Curved Nib is versatile for drawing, you will have to make a conscious effort to hold the pen at certain angles to get the line variation you want. In a way, this nib can be considered to have consistent performance. The line variation you can get with a fude nib is more unpredictable but it's automatic without having to bother with how the pen is held. For drawing purposes, the fude nib is considered to be more expressive.</p> <h3>Conclusion</h3> <p>As mentioned in the bottom line earlier, this is a beautiful pen and the calligraphy curved nib is quite versatile for drawing although not as versatile compared to a fude nib. I'm not sure how good the pen is for calligraphy since I'm not familiar with calligraphy art. But since it is a so called Calligraphy nib, I'm sure it can be used to create calligraphy or calligraphy art.</p> <p>This pen is more suited for people who write bigger since the line width is at least a medium.</p> <p>The use of that sticker as part of a design element, if it's really a sticker, is unacceptable on pen this expensive.

href="https://bookshop.org/a/96/9781838661649" target="_blank" rel="noopener">A new monograph</a> published by <a href="https://www.phaidon.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Phaidon</a> delves into the multi-faceted work of Kenyan-American artist Wangechi Mutu (<a href="https://www.thisiscolossal.com/tags/wangechi-mutu/">previously</a>). The first of its kind, the volume packs hundreds of artworks, glimpses into <a href="https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2021/07/wangechi-mutu-studio-visit/">Mutu&#8217;s Nairobi studio</a>, and her own writings within its 160 pages. Known for mythologizing, the artist often incorporates found, organic materials like soil, feathers, bone, and ephemera into her collages and sculptures.

The artist continues to expand upon the traditional hoop as the framing device and considers how the medium translates to unexpected surfaces like surfboards or apparel. And she isn&#8217;t afraid to experiment: her design for a surfboard—a bird perched on a large flower with a stem that trails into loose threads—didn&#8217;t go as planned when the time came to apply the piece to the physical board. However, the learning experience shaped the way she approaches future projects.</p> <p>A recent series of vibrant human eyes stitched onto Adidas shirts comprise a collaboration with the brand to produce limited-edition wearable artworks. &#8220;The brief was broad: to create a sense of individual expression through the community,&#8221; Clough explains. &#8220;This collection of ‘expressions’ looks out from the wearer’s chest. Standing alone, but all together; a part of a group, like a bouquet.&#8221; She has also been experimenting with different threads and watercolor, focusing on the fabric background as an important part of the overall composition.</p> <p>Clough says, &#8220;<span style="color: #333333;">I&#8217;m currently working with a South African clothing brand called <a href="https://www.poetrystores.co.za/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Poetry</a> on creating a collection for spring using a variety of techniques to translate my work onto apparel,&#8221; and</span> shares that she is also collaborating with Florida-based boxing glove maker <a href="https://1v1fightgear.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">1V1</a> to create embellished mitts. Toward the end of this year, Clough will also present a series of workshops at <a href="https://www.paradigmarts.org/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Paradigm Gallery</a> in Philadelphia.

All images courtesy of Shantell Martin, shared with permission</p></div> <p>The ever-optimistic artist <a href="https://shantellmartin.art" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Shantell Martin</a> (<a href="https://www.thisiscolossal.com/tags/shantell-martin/">previously</a>) brings her meditative, joyful line drawings to a collection of limited-editions candles. Minimal faces, birds, flowers, fish, and pithy affirmations like &#8220;You Time&#8221; and &#8220;Relax&#8221; grace the glass and ceramic vessels made in collaboration with <a href="https://joyastudio.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Joya Studio</a>. With burn times of 3,000 and 8,7000 minutes respectively, the candles release uplifting, stimulating scents with notes of shaded green tea, ocean air, heliotrope petals, and vanilla flowers.</p> <p>Both designs are hand-poured in Joya&#8217;s Brooklyn studio, and the porcelain edition contains layers that emit different fragrances after 10, 30, or 60 minutes, making each piece both a timekeeper and a source of warm light. “My wish is that these candles can burn in the background during your creative process, much like a playlist, invigorating your senses and bringing you back to self,&#8221; the artist says.</p> <p>Shop the collection on <a href="https://joyastudio.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Joya&#8217;s site</a>, and follow Martin&#8217;s latest collaborations on <a

The net-like, “sketchy” composition pictured below appears at first glance like a bird’s nest, but upon closer inspection, an elephant’s eye and trunk emerge. &#8220;I really enjoyed this piece, and it was quite a challenge to design and execute!&#8221; she says.</p> <p>In December 2022, White published <em><a href="https://bookshop.org/a/96/9780762479405" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Resilience Alchemy</a>, </em>a deck and guidebook featuring her artwork that focuses on creative self-discovery and empowerment. &#8220;I&#8217;m really proud of this project, and even though it&#8217;s a departure from the more intricate cut-paper work, it explores resilience in a way that I think can be helpful and hopeful for a lot of people,&#8221; she says.

He held workshops with Diana Aisenberg, AB-ELE and participated in seminars led by Alberto Goldenstein, Guillermo Ueno, Martín Reyna, Dolores Casares, Oscar Smoje, Mariano Sapia, Jorge Gonzáles Perrin and Javier Abarca.</p> <p>Pomar maintains a marked interest in the urban landscape. The exploration of the wall as a surface of enunciation is deployed in the development of large-scale murals in public and private spaces, as well as the deconstruction in exhibition contexts. His body of work opens a varied materiality that encompasses textiles, ceramics and printed publications. The projects that Pomar developed can be found in more than twenty countries such as Argentina, Brazil, the United States, France, Italy and Ukraine.<br /> Jorge made collaborations with Diego Bianchi, RICAS Estudio, Franco Fasoli, Julia Sbriller, and Elian Chali and solo and group exhibitions at Quimera, MUNAR, Pasto, MARCA Museum in Italy, V9 gallery in Poland and Palais de Tokyo in France.<br /> Lives and works in Buenos Aires.</p> <p class="p1">&#8220;Malla horizontal&#8221; work was made with acrylic paint on a 3 x 43 m concrete wall, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2023.</p>
