Konstantin Kofta created his own label, Kofta which combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry. His garments are sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable. Kofta uses rough skin, irregular shapes and unique scents to create a totally new vision of the attire as a whole. Designer Konstantin Kofta combines rural and urban perceptions, and embraces the unintentional and unexpected, which provide inspiration for current and future collections. Each collection appears as a form of art installation.

” I found a list of 10 psychopathic traits on the internet. Each trait corresponds to that individual’s personality in some way. I found these interesting as they just seemed like normal aspects of everyone’s personalities and also certain celebrities and figures of authority.” – Thomas Fowler

Bertrand Flachot is a photographer and artist French, graduated from the Ecole Nationale des Arts Decorative. The latter moved there twenty years in the Seine-et-marnaise campaign, installing his workshop near a wooded lot. This small forest, the artist looks change with the seasons, became an inspiration vector and the main subject of his creations. The photographs of trees and landscapes become a drawing medium, the pencil accentuating the chaotic mesh plant for rendering paradoxically very delicate.

” The pictures forming in my head are ones of domination over nature, the struggle of animals in a changing world, and the effects of a changing world on the animals and humans. Women became the metaphor for mother nature as wild and sexual thing exploited and explored in my work, and animals became the subjects of examining abnormalities and evolution. Taking ideas that I had learned from ideas on feminism, I began to draw parallels in our ways of controlling and objectifying women to how we also think about the earth and it’s resources therein.” – Hannah Faith Yata

Eddi Prabandono is an artist who involves design, planning, and construction in creating his large-scale pieces. He did not work on his pieces alone. Just like in a project, Eddi Prabandono involved many workers: to create designs and even work plans. Often, he employed construction plans that need [careful] calculation. However, his pieces did not turn into structural things, because of the way he incorporated the evolution of languages of expressions in creating them. (via Primae Noctis and Indo Art Now)

” I have loved nature all my life, it is the backbone of everything, it is beautiful and horrible, and it is incorporated into most of my drawings and paintings. I like to embellish portraits and figures with elements of nature to combine ‘human’ and ‘natural’ beauty, and I also like to use nature to express more personal and emotional ideas. Butterflies are a regular occurrence, my awareness of and involvement in The Butterfly Project has meant that they have come to represent quiet emblems of hope. As art is slowly becoming a bigger part of my life, my work is growing more personal and closer to my heart. When it comes down to art, what motivates me most of all is the blankness of the page in front of me which cries out with so much possibility. I look at the blank sheet in front of me and know that I can do anything. I am free, there are no rules. To this day, art is shaping who I am. It is bringing me new opportunities, allowing me to meet fantastic people, and constantly giving me hope. If I didn’t draw I’d curl up and die.” – Kate Powell
