Something about art always makes me think more about what I am designing.
Art is so broad. It incorporates photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, performance, collage, instillation...the list goes on.
Fashion is clothing. Shoes are shoe, bags are bags, Jewellery is jewllery, hats are hats. Yes they fit into the fashion category - and dont get me wrong - I'm in fashion, i live for fashion. But art forces me to think in a different direction and not just reinterpret what exists.
I trawl through www.butdoesitfloat.com because there is such a vast array of artists, ideas and concepts. These are a few I found recently that I thought were amazing....

I've come across this amazing new form of graffiti from Germany. Called Environmental Graffiti www.environmentalgraffiti.com, it is made from moss. The process involves blending moss, water, buttermilk and a retention gel and making a paste. You then paint it on with a stencil or free hand and keep it moist with water mist. The results are spectacular. Try it for yourself.
