Earlier this week I showed some examples on how to change your home for summer with different rugs, lamps and small home accessories in different cereal colours and maybe even a bit of brown, the colour for winter 2016. Lidewei Edelkoort calls it the rise of the south, where young designers from Nigeria, South Afrika and Brazil use their culture and craft technics to produce new furniture and home accessories.
I am not a fan of the multi coloured products but really appreciate the different shades of beige. Lots of examples of tribal art can be found in my Pinterest album. Next to a new piece of furniture or some accessories you can also use different photo art and posters if you love this African or South American vibe.
I collected the work of two photographers I love, Roy Rossovich for Love Warriors and the work of Serge Anton found at Couleur Locale. Both photograph people from all over the globe, the portraits come in black and white and an occasional Sepia.
Cinematographer and photographer Roy Rossovich lives and works in Scandinavia and The US. We love the tension in his images and the way he portraits people – fashion models as well as celebrities. In his pictures we saw strength, softness, past and future and we were intrigued to find out how his DNA would match with ours. It’s up to you to be the judge of that when we present Don’t be Like the Rest of Them, Darling, based on a quote by Eudora Welty who wrote this sentence in the context of describing the relationship between black and white people in a racist American South.
The Belgium French artist Serge Anton lives and works in Brussels. He started off as a press photographer but nowadays you can find him all over the world as a famous multidiscipline art photographer. His collection of portraits is a reflection of his many travels to Ethiopia, Tanzania, Thailand, Morocco and Egypt. We very much love his work! The monochromes have a monumental size and bring the African atmosphere into your home. The people in these portraits have all a unique character, it’s as if they look at you, confronting and persistent. They make us feel connected as human beings, no matter where we come from. The portraits of Serge Anton are a tribute to humanity as such.
