Kendrick Lamar Receives Generational Icon Award From California State Senate

One of my favorite artist Kendrick Lamar was given the 35th “Generational Icon Award” by the California State Senate yesterday (May 11). State Senator Isadore Hall presented Kendrick with the honor, which celebrates his work in his native hometown of Compton, Calif. Although he’s seen much success in the last four years, K-Dot has remained humble as he continues to serve his community. He’s donated funds to the Compton school district and neighboring charities in hopes of improving the city as a whole. Read More

Pen & Paper: Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic

Last year was a busy year for New York-based artist Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic. From his artworks seen at the CFDA awards, Miami Art Basel and MoMA, Mestrovic’s unique fluid style of painting along with his impeccable desire to create aided in opening opportunities to share his work across a diverse spectrum of mediums. Not only has his presence touched on music and video but his artwork has found its way into fashion, gracing Nike’s 340 Canal shop, and even linking him to his CFDA counterparts Public School in the label’s 2015 spring/summer collection. Armed with ink, multi-nibbed pens, ink/steel brushes at various shapes, and traditional Japanese calligraphy as one of his foundations — honed with years of study under calligrapher Yukia Kondo — Mestrovic walks us through some of his more recent works in addition to demonstrating his techniques. With a new studio and healthy list of projects under his belt, 2015 should prove to be an even more busy year for the talented artist.
