(NEW SECTION IN MY BLOG!!!
for a while now I´ve been posting
my favorite artists of all kinds on my facebook
but I think is time to share it with you here too!)
(Hope you enjoy and spread the inspiration!)
Ins - pirazione of today is the chalk artist
♥♥ DANA TANAMACHI ♥♥
It is a great time when despite all the new technologies
and new art an artist working solely with chalk
has so much success!!!!
Dana Tanamachi is a Texas-bred,
Brooklyn-based graphic designer and letterer,
she works with white chalks and her designs
have been commissioned by clients such as Google,
Yahoo!, Rugby Ralph Lauren, The Ace Hotel,
Tommy Hilfiger, West Elm, and Bloomingdale’s.
Her works take me back to those days
when adds where painted on the walls,
the vintage letters and intricate decorations
have such an old fashion feeling
and yet it has a "je ne sais quoi"
that fits perfect in our modern world!
Maybe is our own desire to go back
to our childhood artistic roots,
maybe is a worldwide movement of people
who more and more want handmade art,
maybe is just me who like anything that is made from the heart...
but I love the fact that someone drawing with chalk is so successful!!!!
Love her work!!!!!
