Finally had a bit of a breather yesterday and went north of Copenhagen to the museum Louisiana to see the Andreas Gursky exhibit. I’ve been a huge fan of his for a long time and it really is a great collection of pieces. My only complaint is that the picture he did from the Sha Tin racecourse (Hong Kong) and the Hong Kong stock exchange weren’t on display cause they’re some of my faves. Maybe it’s just cause they remind of Hong Kong :-)

My goodness! Do you lot know UK artist Ian Francis? If not you should really check him out. His work is SO dramatic it’s amazing, some of his pieces seriously look like they’re scorching hot or on fire even cause they’re just so intense in warm colour. I also just LOVE the contrast between areas that are really carefully detailed and areas that seam like irregular aggressive strokes with the paintbrush.

Look at this super nice identity that Anagrama did for a printshop, they sure don’t look like that in Denmark. I love the use of different patterns, variety of type and little splashes of colour. It kinda makes it seam tight and lively at the same time. Love it!

Las Vegas Neon Museum Boneyard

I don’t think I’m the only one with a great love for old neon signs. I’ve never been to Las Vegas but if I did, I wouldn’t go for the gambling, but to see the Las Vegas Neon Museum Boneyard. The museum restores old signage but a lot of them are stored in the so called Boneyard and it just looks AMAZING! Oh how I would love one of those letters in my apartment, would probably take up an entire room though.

Have been looking through the millions of open tabs I have in my browser of very important things I won’t wanna forget about (am I the only one who does that?!?!) and there’s just so many good things that I haven’t had time to look through and share with you. Like Russian photographer Elizaveta Porodina. I really think this girl is very talented. It’s not just photos, each one really is a little piece of art. It’s almost angelic!

Hype for Type

Here’s Hype for Type, a little foundry that does really special and unique things, or as they say themselves, they do Haute Fonture! Love it! There are SO many cool display fonts and I have no idea whatsoever what to use them for, I just WANT them! They even do co-labs with other really cool people like Anthony Burrill and Non-Format! Ohh I could go on and on, just go look for yourselves.

Let’s just have a little sexy fashion photography today. After all, it is the weekend!

Here’s Danish photographer Henrik Bülow. I love his work because it’s often quite dramatic and focused around extreme movement.
