Style Icon: Emanuel Limon

8 Jun
 About a month ago, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Emanuel Limon, visionary extraordinaire, expressing his ideas through design, art, and photography. Like a mash-up between Warhol and Rick Owens, Limon pushes the envelope with his reconstructed masterpieces. 
 

His sunglasses first caught my eye with futuristic shaping and mixed-media that I’ve never seen before. When asked where he got them, he understatedly said “I made them.” And I’m thinking: wow-where do you even begin with making sunglasses?!  

And it doesn’t end there, Limon also reconstructs and designs clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry and artwork stating,

“I push myself to do things I wouldn’t be comfortable doing in order to grow as a person.”
 
 
These are some of my favorite Emanuel Limon piece’s:

Sculptural Joy

11 May

This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to meet sculptural genius Julie Joy Saypoff at Artist and Fleas. A local resident, Julie creates out of the Willie B Galley on N. 8th by the waterfront. She fell in love with our “Hold My Heart” ring, which we customized for her each of the 3 pieces in a different finish: Gold, Silver, and Rose. After sharing that she is also a local artist, I had to check out her work:)

copper with patina, granite

Using primarily copper, steel, and aluminum, she works intuitively with each piece first building the foundation and then by refining the details. Her abstract pieces speak on a metaphysical level, touching back to the ideas of creation, energy, and life—using organic materials to characterise these concepts. In her videos explaining her pieces, she encompasses the exercise of personal inspiration on her pieces, and on art in general:

” I believe that fine art is a universal language that can be appreciated by anyone who is patient enough to ponder it and that by understanding basic human nature, we can better understand both ourselves and others.  It is a language without words that can be seen as well as felt and can be visually interpreted throughout the world. “

“My goal as an abstract sculptor is to communicate a specific energy through the gesture of a piece.”

“All of my work speaks of emotion, honesty and relationships between human beings”
