Japanese designer Nigo is unloading a bunch of contemporary art, jewellery, and furniture from his personal collection through a Sotheby’s auction entitled NIGO® Only Lives Twice. The founder of Bape said “I wanted to have an estate sale of my own but obviously I couldn’t get any enjoyment from it myself if I was dead. So I decided to do it now.”

Take a look at the entire auction here.

Booooooom x Herschel Supply: “Drawing On The Past” Art Show Opens Today

drawingonthepast-01 drawingonthepast-02

Vancouver! Our “Drawing On The Past” art show with Herschel Supply opens today at Burrard Arts Foundation (108 East Broadway). The gallery is open to the public everyday (noon – 5pm) until October 6th. Feel free to drop in and see all the amazing work before our big opening party on Thursday night.

If you plan to attend the opening on Thursday please RSVP the Eventbrite HERE. We may get really busy and there may be a line at some point during the night. If you’re on the list you’ll have an easier time getting in. We’re really trying to abide by the fire codes, the last show was over capacity. Beverages will be provided by Vancouver Urban Winery and Postmark Brewing.

My advice is show up early, have a couple drinks, and enjoy the show before the space gets too packed. Hope you can come check out the work, it’s an incredible show.

Booooooom Submissions / October

october-submissions600a

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the September Submissions post, a lot of the work I featured this past month was pulled directly from that post. Happy to see everyone continuing to leave positive comments on each other’s work!

This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

 

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

 

*Update July 21st – I am gonna update this entire list, get rid of Tumblrs that are no longer updated, and add a whole bunch more.

I am starting to compile an extensive curated list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the quality suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey works by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) and I’d like to include as many sites as possible that credit the original creators.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be! Stoked for this! Let’s go!
