Art Fair Fridays – Selena Wong

It’s Friday once again, which means both Heirloom & Knot and I are very happy to share with you the latest instalment in our ongoing Art Fair Fridays series, where we bring you weekly design inspiration and exclusive interviews with the talented artists that inspire our creativity on a daily basis.

Today, we’re so excited to share with you the beautiful work of Selena Wong, whose romantic illustrations exude feminine whimsicality and playful abandon.  Each pieces has an adventurous spirit, and demonstrates a ‘translation of daydreams and nightmares’ into images that are both playful and thought provoking. Her style is intricate…layered with narrative vignettes, which weave the fantastical with reality in a way that feels reflective and imaginative.

How long would you say you have been a professional artist and what has lead you to this point in your career?
Art has been my life for as long as I could remember. This is the field I specialized in throughout high school and university. In 2009, I exhibited as an Untapped Emerging Artist at The Artist Project, and I believe that point marked my path to becoming a professional.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received about your art?
During one of the more uncertain times in my career, I was lucky to have a conversation with someone I look up to. The outcome from that conversation was something I remind myself with time after time – “The path to an artist’s career is not always clear. You’re destined to do this. It’s something that gives you joy, you should be doing it.”

How would you describe your creative process?
I carry with me many little notebooks where I scribble down sparkles of ideas wherever I am. When one of those scribbles remains in the forefront of my thoughts, I’ll choose it.  It’ll become more elaborately drawn out and eventually be composed and carried out as a final piece of work.

What is your favourite medium to work in?
Gouache is my favourite medium. It has a finish that gives a beautiful matte surface and it’s perfect for creating pastel palettes.

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?
I recently exhibited a small body of work as a solo artist at Gallery House, alongside Ray Caesar. Ray has always been one of my biggest inspirations and it was a dream come true to fill a gallery space among his masterpieces.

How would you describe your signature style?
My work speaks softly and you have to get real close to it. It is sweet, dainty, but also a touch provocative.

Where do you find your greatest creative inspiration?
In my dreams, in my moments of solace, and in a bathtub. These are the places where my creativity comes to visit me the most. I also share my studio space with my pet rabbit; he reminds me to love and to be gentle and kind. He often makes an appearance in my work as he sends me back to an age of innocence, and imbues my creations with fondness and mischief.

What do you think sets your work apart from other artists?
When an artist creates work based on their life experiences, they create their own unique trend and style. If they try to adhere to what’s current, they’re only following a direction others have achieved for them. It’s my belief that composing pieces from passion and from the impression of my surroundings leads to creating a sincere way of telling a unique story. I believe that it’s my personal stories and how I tell my stories sets me apart from other artists.

Art Fair Fridays – Ianitzva Vassileva

It’s Friday once again, which means both Heirloom & Knot and I are very happy to share with you the latest instalment in our ongoing Art Fair Fridays series, where we bring you weekly design inspiration and exclusive interviews with the talented artists that inspire our creativity on a daily basis.

Today, we’re so excited to share with you the mixed media work of Toronto based artist Ianitzva Vassileva, whose photographs and paintings straddle the line between hyper realism and abstraction. Her works provide a glimpse into the artist’s perceptions of events, moments and time in a way that feels both representative and beautifully interpretive.

How long would you say you have been a professional artist and what has lead you to this point in your career?

It’s hard to say at which point I really became a “professional” – art has been something I have been involved in from an early age and something I always approach with a great deal of focus and enthusiasm. That being said, I’ve been exhibiting my work at various galleries since 2011 when I was fortunate to have my first solo exhibition. Since then, I’ve had to work really hard to continue building my practice and creating as much work as I can while balancing a full time job as a designer/consultant. I think there’s also a fair bit of social media marketing & business savviness associated with a career in art. It is something I love learning about and developing alongside my work!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received about your art?

Even if you’re not feeling particularly inspired, just pick up the paintbrush and start making something. It really is that simple sometimes, I can’t count the amount of times that has pushed me through a creative block!

How would you describe your creative process?

It’s very intuitive, and process oriented. Sometimes an idea hits me over the head and I just have to do something with it right away, whereas some ideas just linger around in my head until I finally figure out how to express them. I take a lot of photographs as well – for the underwater paintings I spend hours sorting through all the pictures until I find ‘the one’ that just works. Once I have a general plan for a painting, I start sketching it out on the panel and from there it’s just a matter of immersing myself in the painting process and seeing where it takes me. Reflection comes after.

What is your favourite medium to work in?

Although I really enjoyed exploring sculpture, installation, and printmaking in art school, I seem to always go back to painting. Oils are my favourite – I just wish the brushes were easier to clean!

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?

Being able to see a group of my paintings come together in a series makes me incredibly proud!
Also, it’s been amazing to connect with so many people via my website and social media outlets. It’s really encouraging (like getting an email from Vogue!), and I’ve also been offered some wonderful opportunities along the way.

How would you describe your signature style?

It’s abstract in the details, but more photorealistic from afar. I think there’s something to be said about the influence of technology and the way small screen sizes have changed the way we perceive art. I actually use my phone as a lens to view my painting while I’m working on it. It gives me a different perspective – almost like another dimension through which to view my work. I like that dichotomy of abstract versus hyper realistic.

Where do you find your greatest creative inspiration?

I keep my eyes open for inspiration from anywhere, whether that’s in nature, science, Instagram, fashion, materials or even the process of making art itself! I find inspiration in the tricks that light plays on our eyes. Artists that inspire me are Cecily Brown, David Altmejdt, Lorella Paleni, and so many others, including many emerging artists!

Artists who can vacillate between mediums and have each one look more stunning then the next, sort of blow my mind.

Art Fair Fridays – Milou Neelen

It’s Friday once again, which means both Heirloom & Knot and I are very happy to share with you the latest instalment in our ongoing Art Fair Fridays series, where we bring you weekly design inspiration and exclusive interviews with the talented artists that inspire our creativity on a daily basis.

Today, we’re so excited to share with you the incredible works of Milou Neelen, whose romantic illustrations exude feminine grit.  Her style is reminiscent of fashion portraiture from years past, with a decidedly modern edge.  Each piece feels layered with whimsicality and an adventurous spirit, speaking to a narrative of empowerment and exuberance.

How long would you say you have been a professional artist and what has lead you to this point in your career?
On my 25th birthday 5 back in 2010 I received a phone call from ELLE magazine if they could use one of my paintings as an illustration with one of their articles. In that same month I started working as a print designer at the women’s brand of Scotch&Soda: Maison Scotch. But I’m working full time as a freelancer for almost 4 years now.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received about your art ?
Maybe not visually about my work but I received some very important tips business wise, including don’t sell your work for too little money, this probably means it’s wasn’t too much of an effort to create. I think every artist struggles with the financial side of creativity, so looking at it from that point of view helps.

How would you describe your creative process?
It starts out with something I see, anything. A color combination, a pattern on the street that sticks in the back of my mind till it suddenly turns into a visual story I have to create. I know, very seventies vague, but my gut is my best creative friend.

What is your favorite medium to work in?
Indian ink and a good pencil is something I work with every day.

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?
I think that phone call by ELLE magazine since that was the start of getting my name out there. I’ve done many illustrations for them since. And launching my own brand Hotel Magique 2 months ago! My web shophotelmagique.com includes illustrated greeting cards, art prints and unique pieces including artworks on velvet canvasses from the ‘Velvet Magique’ series or golden artworks in giant size vintage playing cards named ‘Let’s play with Magique’.

How would you describe your signature style?
A fine line between playful and feminine.

Where do you find your greatest creative inspiration?
I get inspired every day by anything, but a couple of artist which always and always inspire me include Sonia Delaunay, Andy Warhol and Matisse.

What do you think sets your work apart from other artists?
It’s always possitive and easy on the eye, and diversity, using different media.

Art Fair Fridays – John MacConnell

It’s Friday once again, which means both Heirloom & Knot and I are very happy to share with you the latest instalment in our ongoing Art Fair Fridays series, where we bring you weekly design inspiration and exclusive interviews with the talented artists that inspire our creativity on a daily basis.

Today, we’re so excited to share with you the incredible talent of John MacConnell, whose works are soft and romantic but also sensual and provoking…a little melancholy, but also filled with joyful optimism. With a portfolio comprised of drawings, sketches and watercolour, MacConnell showcases his subjects in a way that feels rooted in reality, but also subject to a dash of fantasy.

How long would you say you have been a professional artist and what has lead you to this point in your career?

I’ve been lucky to have been creating art professionally for eight years. It hasn’t always put a roof over my head, but the commitment to making new work through the slow times, combined with some great advice from friends, has gotten me to where I am today. Never putting down my pencil, through the slow times, has allowed my work to evolve and meet lots of great folks that make a supportive community now.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received about your art ?

Find a way to put yourself into every piece.

How would you describe your creative process?

(Step 1) Spend months observing, until one night I…
(Step 2) Blast pop jams + open a bottle of wine. Then,
(Step 3) I spend three hours hating what I’m doing, thinking I’ve lost “it.” Finally,
(Step 4) I spend one hour pulling all together to beautifulness. Depending on the scale of the project, I
(Step 5) repeat steps 2-4 over two to four weeks.

What is your favourite medium to work in?

Graphite powder & pencil on Rives BFK, the paper of the gods.

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?

The opening night of my first New York City gallery show made me feel like a rockstar.

How would you describe your signature style?

Classic, minimal, intimate.

Where do you find your greatest creative inspiration?

Instagram! It’s vast galaxy of fashion; artists; pop culture; dancers, athletes, models, “models,” & go-go boys; kittens; memes; and trash. Human interaction is the core of my work. Instagram provides so much to observe and absorb!

What do you think sets your work apart from other artists?

I put a lot of thought into each body of work. It takes me months to conceptualize a project. I want to make work that makes the audience have a mental and physical reaction. I like thinking the art I’m creating right now leaves the viewer both excited but a little melancholy, like the rush of finishing your first marathon, then thinking, “what now?”

Art Fair Fridays – Ashley Longshore

Because it’s Friday once again, and in honour of the new Star Wars film, this week Heirloom and Knot and I are thrilled to present  Ashley Longshore as part our latest instalment in our ongoing Art Fair Fridays series.

Though this wonderfully talented artist needs no introduction, it’s such a pleasure to learn more about Longshore’s process and how her stunningly whimsical works are created. Her eye for over the top theatrical beauty and her wonderfully satirical voice makes each of piece as much a conversation piece, as it is a stunningly pretty work of art. Her works are menageries of beauty and whimsy, that showcase the artists’ love for fantasy and quick.  They’re exuberant and filled with a joyful commentary on life and Longshore’s place within it.

How long would you say you have been a professional artist and what has lead you to this point in your career?
I have been working as an artist for 23 years. It was very early in my career when I decided to put together a portfolio and go to galleries and really make this how I make my living.  It has been an exciting journey and a long journey. I cannot say it was an easy journey, but finally now – after 23 years I am reaping the benefits of all this hard work.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received about your art ?
The best advice I ever received was from my dad… “ he who toots his own horn controls the volume”.
And I think that is why I have been so successful at using social media, at using the internet and utilizing the press to really make a lot of noise and let people know I am here and have something awesome that is available.

How would you describe your creative process?
All of my work is multimedia and happens in several layers. First I like to paint the image and then will bedazzle and add glitter to the image, and then will apply resin over the image. As far as getting to the point where I’m actually getting ready to paint that really happens a lot for me by isolating myself and reflecting on my life and American greed and all those things. Several times a year I will take inspiration  trips, like Maui for a month to paint, or this year I’m going to Rome for a month to paint … And that’s really a sacred time where I really make my mind up about what it is I want to paint.

What is your favourite medium to work in?
I love acrylic paint because it dries fast, I love glitter, I love gloss, shine and sparkle. I love anything that is big and over-the-top

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?
When I started getting press in Vogue, Forbes, and interviews in Fast Company and my recent collaboration I did with Net-a-Poter and one of their sister companies The OutNet. I did their first big gorilla ad campaign all over New York City and actually last week saw my art on billboards all over the place. That was very, very exciting!

How would you describe your signature style?
My style is not pretentious, very colourful, and conversation pieces. If my artwork were a fashion accessory it would be a big fucking diamond ring.

Where do you find your greatest creative inspiration?
From my role as a woman in American society and my place in that. My place in this status obsessed, very class oriented society we live in…. I’m really trying to find my role amongst all that greed and am really enjoying that process.

What do you think sets your work apart from other artists?

I have my own voice and this is my own individual expression of the world. That is what truly makes an artist who they really are, when they find out how to take their thoughts and put it on canvas or into sculpture, photography or film. The minute you figure out what it is you want to say as an artist, you find your own style and you roll with that, and I think I’m there.

I’m honestly not even sure how I’m possibly able to sum up my reverence for Ms Longshore.  Simply put, I J’adore her and every single iota of artwork she creates. To me, her pieces are Alice in Wonderland all grown up, with a healthy dose of ‘cake in the face’ edge. Total and absolute conversation pieces.

Though impossible to narrow it 5, here are a few of my lusted after pieces…
