Modern Rebels

Originally posted on for the love of nike:
Milwaukee Art Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Modern Rebels who were game changers in the world of fine arts. You’re probably familiar with most of them. A short list of the 68 master makers includes Frida, Pollock, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Miró, & Lichtenstein. It’s so wonderful to walk through works from around 1900 to 1960, and view each piece as a stepping stone in the timeline until now. Strong vibes of surrealism, cubism, Fauvism, and abstraction all staring each other in the face. Such a powerhouse collection makes me wonder what collections will be circulation 100 years from now. Who will be the future rebels to revere for generations to come? I wore a fun dress by WHIT. It only seemed fitting with the bold color and pattern mirrored in the art work. Take a look other inspiring WHIT pieces here. To push the tropical vibe further, I wore my Hawaiian print Roshe Runs. They’re no longer available, but you can grab the matching leggings on sale now.…

The Art Of Contrast

Originally posted on A Couple Talks:
For better or worse, I’m an LA guy. I was born and raised here, having never lived anywhere else. When I hear people say disparaging things about Los Angeles, I get defensive. “People are so fake here,” or “The transportation is horrible,” they might say. The thing is, I know these things, but you are not allowed to say them since you’re on the outside. It’s like when a man fights with his girlfriend and busts out the line, “Jesus, are you on your period?” He very well may be right, but still, what the hell does he know about the menstrual cycle? On a side note, living with Emily, I’ve learned a thing or two about that, and trust me, you’d rather not know. Another opinion that’s thrown out about Los Angeles is that it’s a haven for artists, and more specifically, the struggling artist. This is definitely true, as Emily and I spent our weekend around the art of LA. My brother, an artist himself, had a private show…

Music: Rising Hype Site

I have nothing at all against mainstream music. However, it doesn’t always my quench my thirst and desire to explore a variety of styles, sounds, and genres. With that being said, I like to explore new/rising artists as well. I haven’t been able to find too many websites that do this well. One that I stumbled upon the other day is Rising Hype. Rising Hype allows artists to upload their videos and songs in order to increase exposure to current and potential fans. It enables members to combine their materials across various social media platforms in one place. The catch? It focuses on hip hop. I listen to a bit of hip hop, but the site would definitely be stronger if it featured a variety of genres. It’s not exactly what I was looking for, but it’s not a bad place to start.
