Lita Albuquerque is an internationally-renowned installation and environmental artist, painter and sculptor. We recently came across her installation from 2006 - Stellar Axis - which was shot in Antartica near the South Pole. Aided by the National Science Foundation, it became the largest temporary art installation created on the continent. Check out some of her install shots below -

Mark Lovejoy is an artist currently based in Alpine, Texas. We came across his dope body of work—I can't stop dreaming of diving into the oasis of color. He creates spectacular images that evoke abstracted landscapes from far away, mystical planets. LOVE!

"I like girls I don't have to put makeup on, girls with a vulnerability in their eyes. I want to capture their raw beauty, their sensuality. I like the girls who are cheeky and provocative and are comfortable in their own skins."
Austrailia-based photographer Akila Berjaoui tells stories with images. Her photos are natural glimpses of women, as she documents very real and intimate interactions with her subjects and their environment. Here are two of our favorite photos, we hope to welcome the floral print (bottom) into our future studio space here at Aimeé Wilder!
In the center of my studio hangs a glistening 4 foot wide print of nostalgic mylar star balloons, a metallic silver curtain, amp, and drums. The photo is one of my favorites from photographer, Lauren Silberman's Afterparty series. She has taken "morning-after" photos of many of brooklyn's wildest shin digs and prints them with the most meticulous attention to detail. More of Lauren's work can be viewed here. To purchase a print you can reach her via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The surreal images below are from photographer Leonid Tishkov's series entitled "Journey of Private Moon in the Arctic".
I received a link today over email of another inspiring blog called but does it float.com and came across a few images of Verner Panton's spaces. His work had always been captivating to me, and I was lucky enough to experience an installation of his work at the Whitney a few years ago. Spending some time inside Visiona 2 was by far the best thing at the exhibit, Summer of Love. It would be exciting to bring some of his designs back to life as wallpaper, if they aren't currently available.
On Sunday evening I attended a fabulous BBQ, despite the rainy weather. I was lucky to meet, stylist Fatu Sall. I checked out her website last night and immediately wanted to do a post including photos of her fantastic work. The photos below speak for themselves. Photo by Tomaas.
Recently, I came across an amazing collection of photographs online ranging from vintage advertising images to current day photography. I absolutely love so many of these and wish I could print and post them on my bulletin, or have a whole wall in frames. The blog is called hrstudioplus.com. Here are some of the photos I like most.
Yesterday I was interviewed for the Burke Decor Blog over ichat. It just so happens that the writer for their blog is also the fantastic photographer, Elise Irving. I am especially in love with her Polaroid Landscapes, and would be sooo happy if she made these available as large scale wall prints or even tiled out as digital wallpaper. It would be fabulous!
In the meantime you can purchase limited edition prints at Burke Decor in 9" X 7" format.
I love these images by filmmaker and former fashion editor Lisa Eisner. She is known for her inspirational photographs, featured in publications including W Magazine and French Vogue. Along with Roman Alonso she also co-founded Greybull Press, which produces beautiful art books. Lisa is represented by Commune.
