We’ve been in lockdown for far too long now and any means are acceptable to fight boredom. We’ve been surrounded by the same walls and items to the point that some of us have started looking at items around us from a new perspective. This fashion-forward Chilean designer definitely did. They say inspiration can strike at any moment and at any place, so how about while doing chores? 28-year-old Felipe Cavieres started creating outfits inspired by various household objects—from cleaning products to foods and drinks. His out-of-the-box thinking made him go viral on Instagram and people love his creative looks.Continue reading This Designer Goes Viral For Creating Outfits Based On Cleaning Products, Foods, And Drinks (16 Pics)
In the visionary arts community, few have paved the path for new artists like the legendary Andrew “Android” Jones. His digital painting prowess pioneered the way for cross-media creatives to merge and blend textures on canvas, domes and in VR. He’s even projected his art onto the side of skyscrapers to feed the furnaces of compelling discourse.
He describes his signature style of blended textures and art as ‘electromineralism’ with a touch of ‘popshamanism’. From Burning Man to the Renwick Gallery (and so much more), Android Jones’s scintillating creative talents were forged in the fires of Industrial Light and Magic, a company owned by George Lucas. They were honed further when he started his own company called Massive Black. In a recent video by the Smithsonian Institute he explained the exhibit he showcased at the Renwick which included dual VR rigs so folks could immerse themselves in 360 degrees of his imagination.
He also has been delivering an immersive dome experience, Samskara. In it, he blends indigenous mythology, tribal elements, transhumanist symbols, storytelling with a lense of abstract realism, and the sort of energetic illustration that seems to push the boundaries of perceptibility. You can check out both videos at the bottom of the post!
For a snapshot of his creative delights churned out by the factory of his mind over the years, we’ve gathered 20 of his most eye-catching, brain-bending art.
It’s a ride for your eyes, so buckle up and enjoy!

“Black-light art is a cliché. I like to think I could redeem it somehow, make it fresh again,” Jacqueline Humphries says of her work. Her latest output is indeed ingenious, as well as eye-catching. Fittingly on view at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton, New York, until May 2020, the 10 pieces in the self-titled exhibition mix resin with black-light-fluorescing pigments, yielding a glowing, ultra-saturated result. Some were produced via 3-D printing techniques and carry traces of their sources, like the green driftwood floating on the purple ground of Painting.

Timothy Oulton is known for its vintage-inspired designs, hand-distressed leathers and often rugged style, but this light-filled Sydney home showcases a surprisingly sleek, modern side of the British furniture and interiors company. Featuring interior design by Coco Republic, a stylish yet family-friendly interior was achieved for the client using an array of Timothy Oulton’s authentically handcrafted designs.
The Coco Republic Design Centre
The Coco Republic Design Centre is one of the most dynamic and recognized international design showrooms in Australia. Timothy Oulton opened its first gallery in Australia at Coco Republic’s Sydney showroom in 2012, with two further galleries in Melbourne and Brisbane. Both companies are bonded by their shared passion for timeless yet innovative design and a quest to create unique, characterful interiors.
A Functioning Family Home
The client engaged Coco Republic’s in-house interior design service after moving into their newly built single-storey apartment in Five Dock, in the inner west of Sydney. As a young family with two boys aged 8 and 13, the brief required a striking space for entertaining guests while retaining a functioning family home.
Experienced interior designer Amanda Pocock from Coco Republic took her cue from the client when choosing Timothy Oulton products. The client gravitated towards the drama and luxury of the Timothy Oulton gallery and with quality a high priority they also appreciated the intensive handcraftsmanship that goes into each piece. Amanda says: “My vision for the space was a dramatic, entertainer.s paradise whilst also catering for the everyday lifestyle of a family of four with a dog. Timothy Oulton’s dramatic and elegant designs make them a perfect choice for entertaining, while their robust materiality makes them suitable for everyday use.”
Working with the existing finishes of the property, a monochromatic scheme was realised with key statement features. The open plan kitchen and dining room offers a spectacular backdrop for hosting friends and family, anchored by the Zodiac dining table, handcrafted using individually polished pieces of marble laid in an eye-catching Roman mosaic pattern. Angeles dining chairs add more drama, swathed in lustrous Old Saddle Black leather and hand-applied stud detailing.
