Custom Painting for Via Asha Design

JadePurpleBrown_Painting

I was commissioned by Oyin of Via Asha Design to create a custom piece for her Brooklyn Apartment. Oyin runs a London based design business with her siblings that focuses on space-planning, design, and CAD services. She's using her apartment as a case study to further grow the business in the Unites States. I'm so excited my art gets to be a part of her project and I can't wait to see how the entire space turns out. 

Painting allows me to express myself outside of of graphic design. I get to step away from the computer and create freely without any client restrictions or guidelines. I look forawrd to establishing myslef as an artist, and not just a graphic designer.

Vegan Lemon Bars

Vegan Lemon Bars_JadePurpleBrown

I've been on a major baking kick lately. Mostly due to my late night scrolls on Pinterest and my never ending sweet tooth. I tried out a Vegan Lemon Bars by Heart of a Baker and I was blown away. The bars were the perfect balance between sweet and tangy, and the recipe is so simple you most likely have all of the ingredients on hand. I'll be on Martha Stewart shit all summer, so be on the look out for more plant based food experiments.

While spending the afternoon in Soho, I decided to pop into the Hole NYC. The gallery is known for contemporary art and shining the light on young emerging artists with thematic group shows. I was able to catch their latest exhibit, Post Analog Painting II, before its closing. The show explored the complex shift in culture from analog to digital media, and its significance to our generation. The pieces shown inspired me to not be afraid to incorporate digital elements to my own paintings, merging the 2 worlds together. 

I would tell you to stop by and check it out, but the exhibit is closed. Instead I urge you to check some of the pieces below and explore even deeper here
