The trip to NYC was oddly ritualistic. Fashionably late, I was certainly looking forward to seeing Simone Rodriguez of Sisa Designs. I wonder if I’d fallen in love with an angel… again.

The last thing I want to do is embarrass the classy owner of Sisa Designs; a fashion boutique nestled in Union Township, New Jersey.

Both contemporary and classic, Jiri Geller Sculptures are a vivid depiction of color, imagination and courage. He bravely combines unconventional elements I find absolutely refreshing. A silversmith with a penchant for cartoonish sculptures living in Helsinki, Finland is easily one of my favorite visual artists. See and decide for yourself.

Self-taught painter and renowned British ‘street’ artist Adam Neate has a new exhibition at Elms Lester Painting Rooms.
