Kevin Morosky - SIX At The Orange Dot Gallery"The idea that we are so closely connected is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard. I love the idea that we are all equal, we just have different lives" - Kevin Morosky
Tonight is the private view of Photographer, DJ, Promoter and overall creative soul and consummate TFL-bashing pottymouth of Kevin Morosky’s exhibition at the Orange Dot Gallery. SIX represents the six degrees of separation theory that Morosky considered after looking through his catalogue of images, of the people he knows, within various circles, and how they all interconnect. Morosky shoots on 35mm film in a documentary style that conjures up feelings of nostalgia and romanticism while it stays entwined within the hardened backdrop of London’s streetculture. Morosky has shot a plethora of artists, musicians and actresses ranging from Ghostpoet, Marques Toliver, Ashley Madekwe, Mischa Barton as well as magazines like RWD and Vice. Check it out!

Hidden Gems Of LA x Odette Annable x Palladium BootsActress, Odette Annable puts on her proverbial Palladium walking boots and takes us on a visually stunning architectural journey for the Hidden Gems Of LA video. As the name suggests it is the more alternative and undiscovered parts of LA that Odette guides us through. From the stunning rooftop at the beautifully worn and rugged Rosslyn Hotel (pictured above), to South Central LA and the amazing hand crafted Watts Tower, which is made of recycled materials, with anything ranging from old bottles to broken plates. There is also the Brewery Artists Complex which is apparently the biggest artist community in the world and in Malibu, a 14 acre Frank Lloyd Wright property. Hidden Gems Of LA is a really insightful watch in seeing alternative aspects of LA, particularly from a historical, cultural and architectural point of view mixed in with the undertone of relaxed fashion style coming from Odette, alongside the great sense of adventure and discovery.Click here to watch the videoImage © 2010 Palladium

QV is feeling the illustrations done by Ju5, the vibrant abstract colours, Quirksville loves his representations of London, music and youth culture. What makes Ju5’s work also amazing is that it’s all directly from his iPad!
He has skills indeed.
