Stephen Wiltshire - Cityscapes From Memory

i remember seeing this dude on a documentary a while back; can remember being suprised by his talents but i obviously didn’t take a serious look @ his work because i’m now amazed. Stephen Wiltshire draws and paints detailed cityscapes; he draws lifelike, accurate representations of cities, having sometimes only observed them briefly.

Stephen Wiltshire - Cityscapes From Memory

born on 24th April, 1974, Stephen was a mute as a child, and did not relate well to other people. then at the age of three, he was diagnosed as autistic. he had no language and lived entirely in his own world. at the age of five, Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London, where it was noticed that the only pastime he enjoyed was drawing. it soon became apparent he communicated with the world through the language of drawing; first animals, then London buses, and finally buildings.

here is immeasurable, natural innate artistry. i can’t look at a number & know for sure i’ve memorised it without a couple of takes; forget a city. dude is a beast, full stop.  his work is popular all over the world, and is held in a number of important collections.

[Visual] Moxy Creative – Ensemble The Style Of Music

Moxy Creative - Ensemble The Style Of Music

I need something like this when I move into a new flat. I always think that one way or another music in some way influences the way we act & dress. I bet many can vouch for Pharrell Williams & his Bape sponsorship deal inspired there way into the world of street clothing. A very clever piece indeed, see if you can match the  outfits to the artists!.

[Design] UrbanKind – Art Décor

Posted in Art, Design, Recommended by the.Zoo.keeper on October 13, 2010

UrbanKind - Art Décor

urbankind is the only place globally to source “one-off” pieces of “Art Décor”.

if you are looking for exclusive & original pieces of furniture with an added twist – décor containing unique / “one-off” urban art designs by some of the most famous UK artists, then look no further. – UrbanKind

it’s been a couple months since the Zoo HQ got a refurb, so these pieces from Urbankind are a real find. offering something a little different to Ilan Dei’s, Awake Your Inner Vandal series of ‘graffiti furniture‘; this collection is slightily more atypical, offering a cool collection of “one-off” furniture pieces, made more urban by designs from some of the best UK graffiti artists, think kinsey meets the Antiques Roadshow.

& even if we can’t afford the décor, we can join the FaceBook group.
