One thing we are learning when hunting for artists and creators to share on LAIY is that there are a shit ton of photographers in Los Angeles. A ton! There are a lot of great ones, too. I don’t remember where we found her work but Anna Dobos is one of the more fantastic Los Angeles photo people. She does videos and music photography and lifestyle photography but her fashion work is the best. They’re slightly oddball and certainly artsy: they’re not what you would expect.
Whenever we visit a new retail store, we always slip something in our back pocket to share. At 12345, it was the very lighthearted and well crafted ceramics of Ben Medansky. Medansky’s makes super delicate glass objects that have a very playful note to them much like 12345. We’re sure his work is going to be popping up in lots of places around town.
Little Ink Print is an almost “cutesy” little ink and paper good studio from Los Angeles. They make little posters and prints geared toward the younger Angeleno but made with the older, affordable art loving Angeleno in mind. The work is the perfect little something to brighten up a nursery or young person’s room in a creative way.
If you have been to The Standard Hollywood since December, you may have noticed that it has totally been transformed into a California cosmic winter wonder zone courtesy of National Forest‘s Justin Krietemeyer and Steven Harrington. The show is their Auroraborealis and is totally great. To support the close of the show, we are teaming up with both The Standard and National Forest to throw a kick ass party on February 9. As you can see above from the flyer, you will not want to miss this.
Lay of the Land is a unique local studio who physicalize geography. They dont make little woodblocks or maps but instead these really interesting topographical representations of lands. They’re like little views of a state or country or physical mass as seen from space created with plush greens and solid blues. They’re little reminders of nature and geography.
