Hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, we are absolutely mesmerized by his digital art and think you will enjoy his futuristic, nature-inspired works. Using the computer screen as his canvas, he creates intricate shapes and patterns reminiscent of earthly elements, yet not of this world.     Here are a few words from Hage describing his process as an artist: "In my quest for the origin of life...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri Matisse

WHO: Henri-Émile-Benoît Matisse WHAT: Painter (also, printmaker, sculptor, draughtsman) WHERE: Paris, France WHEN: 31 December 1869 – 3 November 1954 Matisse is famous for revolutionizing the way that artists approach painting and sculpture. Some of his most famous works, such as Woman with a hat (1905), La Danse (1909), and Red Room (Harmony in Red) (1908), illustrate the way that his art broke preexisting bounds and challenged artists to push further than ever before.

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Rachel Ruysch

WHO: Rachel Ruysch WHAT: Painter WHERE: Northern Netherlands WHEN: 3 June 1664 – 12 August 1750 Rachel Ruysch is best known for her moody and dramatic still life paintings. The daughter of a celebrated anatomist, botanist, and collector (who was also the head of Amsterdam's botanical garden!), Ruysch was an expert of flowers and insects and her paintings of overflowing bouquets often depict a variety of blooms in amazing accuracy and detail. Ruysch is remembered today as one of the very few...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Horace Pippin

WHO: Horace Pippin WHAT: Painter WHERE: Pennsylvania, USA WHEN: 22 February 1888 – 6 July 1946 FAMOUS FOR: Horace Pippin is best known for his striking oil paintings, which depicted the American landscapes around him and scenes from his heritage.

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

WHO: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901 This legendary Post-Impressionist painter who would have been 155 today is hands down one of our favorites. His collection is a whirlwind of color and scenes from the wild side of late 19th century Paris and the famous Moulin Rouge. An aristocrat by blood, Toulouse-Lautrec's life was less than idyllic having been born with genetic disorder that ultimately led to the stunt of...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri Rousseau

WHO: Henri Rousseau WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 21 May 1844 – 2 September 1910 Known as "Le Douanier" ("the custom's officer") amongst his peers due to this profession as a toll collector, Henri Rousseau was a self-taught painter who inspired Paris' avant-guard scene and generations of Surrealists from the end of the 19th century/beginning of the 20th century. His unique style was a direct result of him never having formally studied anatomy or perspective in art; instead he...

Featured Gallery: Netsuke

We are obsessed with these diminutive wood and ivory sculptures called Netsuke (pronounced nets-keh) so we figured we should make an entire gallery dedicated to them! Invented in 17th century Japan as means to solve the dilemma for no pockets on a kimono, netsuke are essentially intricately carved toggles that were born out of necessity to fasten sagemono (pouches) but quickly snowballed into a fashion piece and literal works of art. These days, they are a...

ARTISTS WE LOVE: Odilon Redon

WHO: Odilon Redon WHAT: Painter WHERE: France WHEN: 22 April 1840 – 6 July 1916 Odilon Redon, born Bertrand Redon to a prosperous family in Bordeaux, France, was a painter and pastellist well-known for his dark and fantastical works of art. He was part of the Symbolist movement which was related to the gothic component of Romanticism and Impressionism. In 1884 he shot to fame when Joris-Karl Huysmans published his cult novel Á rebours which featured a decadent aristocrat...
