What an absolutely stunning sight. The vibrate colours and graphic shapes make this unique take on a basketball court stand out from the apartments that surround it in Paris. Behind this project is a collaboration between Pigalle a french fashion brand that also have a separate basketball clothing line and the creative artists at Ill-Studio. They really have outdone themselves with this unique design. Check out more photos after the jump.
It’s easy to pre-judge music especially with the history that Bieber has. I’m not a fan of his back catalogue but it’s nice to be surprised every once and a while and this is the second one for me from Bieber this year. I actually didn’t mind the Jack Ü track he featured on that was produced by Skrillex and Diplo. This one is different though, I really like this new track. Something about the laid back beats and the subtlety of the track and vocals. I just got hooked after the tropical vibes kicked in. Nice job Bieber. I understand Skrillex was on production for this one as well. It’s a nice collaboration that produces another quality track. Keep it up.
Fresh off releasing an 18 minute preview of his upcoming new album Beauty Behind The Madness. The Weeknd has unveiled the music video for “Tell Your Friends”, directed by Grant Singer. The track produced by none other than Kanye West has that soulful Yeezy vibe that we all love. That subtle beat and low key piano work very nicely with The Weeknd’s vocals.
The music video visuals directed by Grant Singer are quite sinister and certain parts of the clip reminded me of Kanye’s Flashing Lights video. You might also recognise a figure in the video that was present in The Weeknd’s last video “Can’t Feel My Face” which was also directed by Grant Singer.
There is also a small preview of the track “Real Life” which is also from the new album. Sounds pretty great as well.
Chris DeLorenzo is the head designer at the clothing brand known as Johnny Cupcakes ( who I am a really big fan of). When he’s not producing great illustrations for the label he’s creating some great pieces of work on his Tumblr page. I came across the Peace Bunny pin above while exploring the curated goods site Very Goods. Took me a while to put two and two together and figure out the creator of the pin was the same Chris from Johnny Cupcakes.
It’s such a clever pin I might have to grab one. Check out Christophers’ store for more pins and prints that are up for sale.

VSCO have recently expanded to create a new platform called Venue. It was built to highlight “Collaborative works created at the intersection of music and the visual arts”. The first piece on the platform focuses on American soul singer Leon Bridges. It features a beautiful photo essay and a striking video of the artist performing a stripped back version of his song “Coming Home”.
