“Sleeping With The TV On (Sweet Dreams)” | Dave the Chimp

“Sleeping With The TV On (Sweet Dreams)” | Dave the Chimp

Dave the Chimp’s work is about balance. Black/white, happy/sad, right/wrong, ying/yang. You can’t have one without the other. Disguised in unbearably cute forms are characters suffering from heartbreak, hate, and despair. Crisply painted characters populate the dirtiest alleyways. Light can’t exist without darkness. “Sleeping With The TV On (Sweet Dreams)”, Dave’s first print with rikiki, is a perfect example of this duality. A scene of comfort that changes when the lights go out. Feature


‘THINK DIFFERENT’ Print | Karl Grandin

‘THINK DIFFERENT’ Print | Karl Grandin

This ‘Think Different’ Digigraphie Print by Karl Grandin is for sale at 1950 SEK (£182.337 at todays exchange rate) which comes signed and numbered. It’s a simple yet effective ironic take on the infamous Apple advertising slogan used in the late 90’s whereby the slogan was set next to historic figures including the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Pablo Picasso, Mahatma Gandhi & Frank Sinatra. Karl Grandin has made a name for himself by creating clever spin-offs from existing brands and items. We truly love what he does and look forward to seeing his future projects. Feature

Inspired by the colorful and hypnotic kinetic art from the 80s—Yaacov Agam, Jesus Rafael Soto, and Carlos Cruz Diez are heavy influencers—Dusen Dusen’s Spring line reminds of a high school physics lesson: kinetic energy are objects that have movement, or the mere perception of movement.
