Victor Monserrate - BBC and more



Victor Monserrate has been very busy. I've been meaning to post his success with the "Ingenio"
a project that was completed as part of his studies during a  double master's of Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College.
It's not often that a thesis is recognized by an international news agency like the BBC! Here is the link:

It's wonderful to see his innovative aesthetic combined with a lovely balance of practicality and compassionate vision.
Here is the link to his website: www.vmdesign.org

and from his bio on his site:


Victor Monserrate is an industrial designer, native to the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico.  Post graduating from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn,NY,  he moved to Brazil and interned with design superstars, the Campana Brothers.
        Upon his return to Puerto Rico, Victor established the VM design studio where he designs and fabricates the vast majority of his pieces. His Kanutos chairs have been featured on many websites including NotCot and Kanye West . His work has also been exhibited at the Pratt Show in NYC, BBC News, The L.A. Times,The Circa Art Fair in San Juan, and the Shanghai Contemporary Art  Expo, WANTED/ ICFF in New York, and 100% Design London.
       His work usually arises from the desire to tame a process or  material.  The result is a functional and modern cleanliness that refuses to forget it's tropical roots , even from foggy London where Victor has recently finished a double master's of Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College.

Congratulations Victor!! So proud of you!

Chrissy Angliker - Painting her heart out!



Chrissy Angliker has been painting up a storm now, as you are all probably aware.
A short time ago she announced the launch of her new website; http://www.chrissy.ch
Her site is brimming with the spirit and talent that we recognize from her days at Pratt, and more. Her voice is clarifying with every passing month, and the press is wonderful!
Check out her latest FB note copied here if you've missed it;


Hi Guys! 

Its SHOWWWW TIMMMEEEE!!!!

You are cordially invited to my upcoming 2 Person show in beautiful Diessenhofen, Switzerland.

Juri Borodatchev was my friend and artistic mentor for many years starting at age 13. He is one of my biggest influences. 
Juri passed away in 2011, and this show is our time to unite one more time to share with you guys our biggest passion of painting.

All the paintings I will be showing have been created in the last 6 month specifically for this show, my source of inspiration being Juri.

I am incredibly honored to be able to show my paintings alongside his.

Please come join us for this special show! 

The Opening is on Friday the 30th of August, starting at 7pm.

I will be present at the Museum Friday through Sunday during opening hours.

On Sunday Juri's wife Maria and I will give a guided tour through the show and discuss the works.

Attached is the invite and additional info ( in German ).
