Lola Loves… Ben Lewis Giles Collages of Flowers

Flowers, birds, tree leaves... Ben Lewis Giles is a talented young artist from Suffolk, England, who is immensely generous with details and... flowers.

Lola Loves… Ophelia Chong’s Letterpress Art

XOXO. Typically meaning kisses and hugs, although you may associate it with a certain TV series about privileged teens, tic-tac-toe, or, more obscurely, a type of seafood sauce. LA-based artist Ophelia Chong screens a bold, heavyset version of these letters in red, atop vintage photographs and illustrations, producing letterpress art with an alarming, propagandistic feel.

Although there's a definite style to her work, it's hard to put your finger on exactly what Kathryn Macnaughton's mixed media illustrations have in common. Some references to pop culture.

Lola Loves… Eric T. White Provocative Collage Art

A little bit provocative, a little bit of nudity, a little bit Rocky Horror Picture Show, Eric T White's collages are fun and irreverent. He mixes black and white photographs with colour ones, and plays with scale in an unexpected, yet still fitting way. Is that a head coming out of a pair of legs? Based in New York City,…

Lola Loves… Wes Anderson Postcards

Wes Anderson movies have a certain distinctive feel. Whether animated or live-action, the colour palettes, directorial choices and camera movements set them apart from your average film. And no one can deny that Anderson excels in creating a world in his movies that, while not far removed from ours, obviously exists on a slightly different plane. But what if you…
