While traveling through Amsterdam, the editor of Arthurious, a New York-based design journal and studio, was fascinated by how obsessed the city’s residents were with their door numbers. Mostly made by hand, these calligraphed numbers are often carved in stone or wood, or created using a variety of materials like metal, ceramics and glass.

Some of them looked high-brow, some sickly, some pensive; one of the digits begged for a bike with a cart of tulips in the front. By and large, they felt they’re a second dimension to the city: quiet but as eloquent as people.

Soon, the folks at the studio were sharing photographs of the numerals on their Instagram account. After picking the best from hundreds of images, they digitized their selections into a typeset and used it to create a lovely 24” x 36” minimalist calendar poster made up of hundreds of different characters. The poster comes printed on high quality 192 gsm paper, and you can get it for $42 at their site.

The pages in the Moleskine diaries of London/Hong Kong-based illustrator Fran Giffard’s are unlike those owned by most people. Sure, they may contain the occasional jottings, recipes and even travel plans to lush, tropical locations – but these are something quite special. Giffard fills the blank spaces around her entries with bright and vivid illustrations of birds – both common as well as exotic. She uses aquarelle, gouache, and graphite pencil to recreate the brilliant plumages and sleek shapes of these winged beauties onto paper. As viewers, we are treated to a wonderful blend of great art with intimate peeks into the artist’s (unarguably charmed) life.

Giffard says that she has been captivated for a long time by the intricate beauty of natural illustrations. Over the past four years, this 2010 alumni of the Camberwell College of Art has been busy producing a huge body of ornithological-inspired artwork. Her drawings have been exhibited internationally, as well as in many locations in the UK.

From 10th March until 26th March, 2015, her upcoming show ‘All My Beautiful Boys‘ at Northcote Gallery, London, will feature select drawings from her various unbound diaries. Moleskine will also be exhibiting one of her drawings at their Covent Garden shop, King Street, London.

You can check out more of the artist’s work at her site, Tumblr and Facebook page.

Miami-based artist Ivette Cabrera addresses issues of identity and female empowerment with her stunning illustrations.

Talking about her works, the artist expounds that in many cultures, the only way a woman can have power and importance is when she is born into a family which wields both. She adds that with the trappings of this power comes a symbolic headdress that signifies and emphasizes the status of that woman. Her aim is to show women that they all have that power on the inside, and make them aware that each “wears a crown or headdress of importance if she were only to be aware of herself.”

Sculptor Kevin Titzer (previously featured here and here) was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana, but moved to Quebec, Canada a few years ago. Though his works have been exhibited numerous times in the United States and Canada, ‘Hinterland’ – his ongoing show at the Galerie d’Art la Corniche – is his Quebec debut.

The theme of the show is about his experiences and adjustments moving from one country and it’s culture to another. Titzer says that there is a puppetry aesthetic that runs throughout the exhibit, and visitors were encouraged to play and interact with two functional ventriloquist dummies during the opening. Like most of his other sculptures, Titzer used carved wood, found objects and recycled materials to create them.

French-sculptor Gille Monte Ruici makes his adorably-quaint robot sculptures using only metal parts salvaged from junk. He collects old tin cans, fire extinguishers, mechanical tools, toasters, kitchen utensils and many other objects, and later gives them a new lease of life by using them as body parts for his creations. The artist says that he gives each one of his unique robots a highly improbable backstory, which often happens to be a disreputable one!

The sculptor, on his creative process:

All the assemblies are done by screw or bolts. Metal and the sheet are ideal for this kind of fixings. I like the matter, easy to work, with particular reflections, patinated, and which, pickled well, is harmonized easily. In general, I don’t have any preconceived idea, I work only with “my visual instinct”. The shape of found equipment will be born, a trunk, a wild glance, a pair of arms… either the final vision is immediate, or the idea of the potential must matured and will emerge later on.

Ruici’s robots have been exhibited at the +Brauer Gallery and later at Intel’s “Geek So In #9” event, in Paris last year. You can visit his blog and Flickr galleries to see many more images of his robots (including ones showing them indulging in bad behavior).

As colorfully-vibrant as Saekdong (traditional Korean attire), South Korean artist Tae-Jin Seong’s carved wood painted panels depict satirical scenes of urban utopia.

Using the character of Robot Taekwon V, the eponymous robot in the hit 1970s South Korean TV show, Seong creates an escapist world full of stories and dreams which combine together elements of patriotism, violence and debauchery in a surreal, explosive mix. They also reveal the artist’s mourning of a lost childhood and a deep disillusionment with society. The carving of alphabets and words in the background of the paintings are “associated with the dissemination of the written word and the origins of printmaking.”

Seong’s works have been collected and put on display in many national museums in South Korea. His panels will be showcased by Gallery LVS at the upcoming New York Edition of PULSE Contemporary Art Fair from March 5th to 8th, 2015. The fair, which will be celebrating it’s 10th founding anniversary next month, will be exhibiting works from scores of artists and exhibitors from around the world.
