From drawings and sculptures that serve as models, the couple tries to create spaces; by crossing and fragmenting volumes, they recreate a dislocated, rickety universe that is, a priori, completely illogical.  photo FeipelBechameilhhF4_zpsd177b22b.jpg  photo FeipelBechameilhhF6_zps2f890fe8.jpg  photo FeipelBechameil_09_zps8377059e.jpg

Fire and Shockproof Coats for Dogs

 photo dog-cloak_zps37c8cd8e.jpeg Fire and shockproof coats protect your pooch during a natural disaster. 'And the material also works as an effective insulator should you and your dog need to escape outside on a frigid night. For larger debris, your dog's head and neck are protected by a half-inch of shock absorbing foam which extends over their eyes as well. A series of elastic straps and velcro fasteners ensure this $200 disaster-proof coat doesn't accidentally fall off, but it also means your dog will need your help putting it on.'

Bruce Gilden

Growing up in Brooklyn with what he describes as a “tough guy” of a father, Bruce developed a love of the streets, often calling them his “second home.” But the love was more than just a simple connection — it was a creative fascination. It was the unique energy of the streets that mesmerized Bruce, an energy that can momentarily expose something inside people that generally stays hidden. Bruce made it his life’s work to capture those moments. Another defining characteristic of Gilden’s photography is his creative attraction to what he calls “characters,” and he has been tracking them down all through his career. His first major project, which he worked on until 1986, focused on Coney Island, the legendary Brooklyn beach where New Yorkers who cannot escape the city heat have been going for cheap thrills summer after summer.  photo tumblr_mcyaz3TmBK1qiqxjto1_500_zps279e3b0e.jpg  photo tumblr_mpvpvbLVMm1rchj4ao1_1280_zpsd94894cc.jpg

In 2009 Fred decided to dedicate himself to painting. The “women painting” collection expresses the female beauty with its both sides – it is severe and delicate at the same time.

Mimi Yoon

 photo large2_zps8f8d247d.jpg  photo flat550x550075f_zps08d4d431.jpg For international artist Mimi Yoon, there is no concrete definition for art. To her it is simply that “art is.” Her artwork vibrates with tangible and sensual beauty and honesty. It subtly allures then climaxes to demand attention and is immediately unforgettable. Mimi has a BFA in Graphic Design from California State University Long Beach, and has founded an art academy for youth and mentored for 10 years before she started to paint her passion. When not painting, Mimi can be found curating art shows and contributing to local charities, with the goal of using the arts to bring raw honest humanity into the realm of community.  photo large1_zps8092dc53.jpg  photo tumblr_n1awrbTTU31qbmgeto3_500_zps4bd9169a.jpg

Claudia Giannuli

 photo Untitled-1_zps138d72de.jpg  photo 2-2_zps3a48d110.jpg  photo Untitled-3_zpsb33ad189.jpg Claudia Giannuli was born in Bari in 1979. She got her degree in Fine Arts in 2004 then she decided to keep herself away from the Accademy and find her personal style. Her “NU DOLLS” (as the artist Guido Corazziari defined them) are absolutely white creatures, cynical and irriverent, half-children, half-women. Their whiteness and purity are opposed to their sense of deep solitude, their dramatic existence in which man is just a walk-on actor, crucified at the right moment. The Nu Dolls stare at us proudly. Sometimes it seems they’re laughing at us like innocent and erotic post-atomic temptresses. Clay has always been her favorite material. In the last years Claudia has been mixing it with resin, wood, plastic, creating settings just like theatrical stages scrupulously built in scale. A little mnemonic architecture, halfway between fiction and reality.  photo Untitled-4_zps0390937f.jpg  photo Untitled-2_zps9e6b7114.jpg
