The Gentleman’s Wager // Mr Porter

This one’s a little different! I was the ‘portrait expert’ for a Mr Porter x Johnnie Walker partnership film, the third and final in the series. The gentleman’s wager was between Monica Chong - creative director of Cutler and Gross and Perou - a big eared photographer (haha, sorry mate…). Both had to draw one another’s portrait and it was a bloody good job I was on hand to help! You can watch it -here- …enjoy!

Small things that are actually surprisingly big: an entire room in a single box


Convenience is an understatement when it comes to the room-in-a-box. A German design and furniture company came up with this brilliant concept, including a whole room’s worth of furniture in a box that only measures 90 x 120 centimetres. No tools are needed in the process of turning this box into a room, and assembly takes less than 10 minutes!

But what does it include? The unit contains all the essentials: a wardrobe, large desk/table with a separate desk cabinet with locking drawers, a revolving height-adjustable desk chair, two stools, a single bed and mattress, and a tall set of shelves. The stools and the drawers even double as additional storage containers. Talk about brilliant design. This is definitely the way of the future!

Why My Marketing Plan Failed


Failing has never been an option for me. I’m one of those people. Failing has always meant embarrassment and inadequacy to me, but the challenges the Mike & Wayne campaign presented have shown me that living by this philosophy of failure is a personal and professional death wish.

I say it is…



This artist has created a different miniature diorama every day for the past four years


When I see fruit and vegetables, I can only think of food. Artist Tanaka Tatsuya sees broccoli and parsley as a potential miniature tree or forest and has been using such everyday objects creatively with his collection of tiny figurines, turning them into various replicas of life events that will elicit an amused smile from appreciative viewers.

He titled his creative micro projects Miniature Calendar and has created one diligently every day for the past four years. His photos are uploaded daily to social networking sites like Instagram and Facebook and you can also buy his photo-book from Amazon Japan.


This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Teresita Fernández and Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Stephanie Barron. 

Fernández has created a major new series of installations for MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass. Titled "As Above So Below," the exhibition moves through the museum’s architecture to create enormous vistas and smaller, more intimate moments with sculpture. The show includes three large-scale installations that are informed by Fernández’s interest in landscape, art about landscape, and our perception of landscape, including Black SunSfumato (Epic) and Lunar (Theatre). Curated by Denise Markonish, “As Above So Below” is on view through March, 2015. The exhibition is accompanied by a sleek, handsome 96-page book.

This is Fernández’s Projection Screen (Black Onyx) (2007). It’s in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  

In 2005 Fernández received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” fellowship, and she currently serves on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions at MOCA North Miami, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Artpace, the ICA Philadelphia, Castello di Rivoli outside Turin, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and others.
