Through the Lens
This Week in Photography
Have a look at the images captured by artist Carla Talabá. From her studio base in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico, Carla blends her expertise in graphic design and photography. Each of her images seems poised and intriguing, beckoning us into some not-so-distant curiosity.
Earth Tile Mandala
We’re seeing a powerful amount of boho-flavored mandala artwork rolling in as of late. These free-spirited designs arrive symmetrically poised to bring positivity and light into any room or living situation.
This color story springs from blending organic tones with a feminine touch. These works by female artists showcase an aura of warm hues, geometric shapes and structure paired with a sense of light hearted allure.
yadi_liu | New York City, New York
My first impression of yadi_liu‘s work was a charge of energy. It remains equally playful and thoughtfully structured, utilizing a captivating color palette. Her work also reads as a blend of figurative scenes yet maintains solid footing as well-crafted, playfully abstract fine art works.
