5+5: Anjelika Temple. Creative Dynamo. DIY Diva. Fly Mama. June 17 2017


In today's 5+5 we feature the exuberant and entrepreneurial Anjelika Temple, a 20x200 alum whose life and career has blossomed magnificently since her tenure with us back in the day. (As a nearly ten-year-old (!!!) company, “back in the day” really means something.) Anyone who follows her on Instagram knows: Anj makes California living look real good. By day she hustles her heart out as Brit + Co’s founding creative director. By night—and, we’ve gathered, many a jam-packed weekend day—she and her (adorable!) fam partake in all the goodness the Bay Area has to offer. Up now, she shares her arty predilections and favorite 20x200 editions with us. Read on for her selects!  – Jen Bekman

Click List: What's Saving Us From News Fatigue June 15 2017


Kinda wanna bury your head in the sand this week? We don't blame you, but how 'bout you turn your attention to some of the cool stuff going on outside the 24-hr news cycle instead. Like how HGTV named us one of the best web destinations for decking your walls with art. Or like any of these awesome things that don't involve us having a super-indulgent Sally Field moment... – Team 20x200  


We felt like swinging by this "fauxdega" art installation by British textile artist Lucy Sparrow, selling a bodega's-worth of felt creations. 8 'Til Late will be on view the Standard High Line in NYC until June 30th, so stop by and stock up while you still can.

Tune into Collage Queen Valerie Roybal’s “Radio City” June 13 2017


Radio City by Valerie Roybal
Get a good look at Valerie Roybal’s Radio City. The Albuquerque-based artist moonlights as a master scavenger, amassing the materials for her collages by sifting through everything from vintage postcards and castoff printed matter, to abandoned textiles and anonymous found objects. Whether her focus favors a particular type of material or a mix of many, Roybal approaches these disparate elements with a keen awareness of invisible or elusive connections, and an imaginative grasp of conceptual bridges yet to be built.

This One’s Got Legs: Amber Vittoria Makes Her 20x200 Debut! June 06 2017


Dress Like A Woman by Amber Vittoria
Amber Vittoria’s art is far from ordinary. You’re likely to lock eyes with her work in part because of her predilection for luscious shapes, and her candyland of colors. Bright, cheeky, and exuberant with an underlying investment in the exploration of physicality and femininity, Vittoria’s work feels—in a word—fresh. The New York City-based illustrator’s debut edition, Dress Like A Woman, takes that novelty to the next level...

Art Bites Back: Cue the Resistance with Edel Rodriguez June 03 2017



Edel Rodriguez at the De Hache conference in Queretaros, Mexico with Resist. showing on the screen


Edel Rodriguez is a busy man. Since the release of his 20x200 edition a few months back, the Cuban-American artist has continued to produce some of the most staggeringly powerful imagery out there, both topical and timeless in its appeal to our humanity. Much of his current work is the modern embodiment of art as activism. His pointed, poignant, no-nonsense approach to artmaking is unafraid of ruffling feathers in the name of resistance. A Rodriguez piece is a reminder to stay alert and active.

Tangled up in Blue: A New Addition to Our Anna Atkins Collection May 16 2017


Chylocladia Clavellosa by Anna Atkins
Time spent on the beach is about as luxurious a sensorial experience as we can come up with. If you ask us, the key components of an oceanic chill fest are as follows: the feel of sea-heavy sand under bare feet, the smell of brine and sulfur, and the sight of seaweed. No trip to the shore is complete without at least one encounter with a glorious, glistening gob of algae.

Jimmy Mezei Shows Off His Bklyn Art + Design Digs May 13 2017

 

It’s pretty clear you’re on artist turf when you enter Jimmy Mezei’s studio. Work from projects new and old hang on every wall, plus a wealth of inspiration images (including the work of many a 20x200 artist!). The same charm that makes brown-bagged rosé feel like a mischievous treat appears in little ways around the studio. Jimmy’s penchant for naming inanimate objects is case-in-point: a studio plant named “Derek”, a paint cart named “Dolly”, and flat file (aptly) named “Flatty” all make your acquaintance. Then there’s a painted note about Paul, the pupper who belongs to his best friend (and 20x200 artist) Kellen Hatanaka, and this important reminder: “You’re not a Supreme Court judge. Relax.”

Below, the Brooklyn-based designer fills us in on his favorite media, his go-to procrastination techniques (take notes), and so much more…
