First of all, yes, I know the title is ridiculously cheesy but I'm rolling with it. Second, this will be the beginning of a week by week series of posts where I'll share pieces of art and design I love so much I wanna share with you guys! So to start it off let's kick it back to 2 of my earliest art crushes - Conor Harrington and Andrew Salgado.
2017. Even just seeing the year makes people anxious and begin predicting "another bad year". Why? Perhaps it is that we are often unsure of what we are seeing and looking at in today's world. What once was up can be down, red can be green. We live in what seems a state of permanent revolution. Which is exciting and liberating, don't get me wrong. We are shaping the future, making history! etc. etc. But it can also be confusing, anarchic, and worrying. Today's world is far more urban, connected,and youthful than it was only a few decades ago. we live in a time where Instagram is the Bible, Netflix is date night, and fame can be achieved through filming someone's shoes and saying "Damn Daniel" over a period of days. With this plethora of new visual material, it can often be hard to be sure of what we are seeing when we look at today's world.
