I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day! I’ve had a chance to tidy up, and now I’m ready for all of my guests to start dropping by… hot chocolate {with a shot or two of Baileys} for all! My first guest is Brazilian born, Vancouver based Lili Vieira de Carvalho. As far as I’m concerned, she has a dream job as the Associate Director at the Diane Farris Gallery. She also writes/curates her own blog called The Art Monitor, which in her words “is a natural side effect of a passion for the art world and the city she now calls home.” It’s really good, you should check it out… but first, check out who makes her jealous:

I am jealous of Aakash Nihalani.

This Brooklyn-based artist is highly influenced by graffiti and his work is playful, humorous and always exciting. The fluorescent 3D boxes made of paper tape are his trademark while in gallery exhibitions he shows another brilliant side of his creative brain – the guy doesn’t have a dark side! While choosing images for this blog post I just couldn’t make up my mind trying to pick just a few. I decided to concentrate on his street works, but his sculptures, prints, works on canvas and cardboard, are equally clever. Oh boy, I’m jealous!

Me too, me too! Love this post… thanks so much for stopping by Lili! xo
