Velocity Art + Design
A big thanks to Ali from for writing in about their artwork. I really appreciate it when companies reach out to me, so thanks, Ali! Velocity has lots of great listed, but because each piece is truly one-of-a-kind (except for prints), you must act fast because items can be here today and poof! Gone forever.
Nike Art Director by day, amazing Artist by night, the bold, graphic work of is fresh, bold, sophisticated, modern. My favorite is , and I love the many , and best part, they're only around $40 each.
artwork is so spirited and full of youth, and knowing Marisa like I do, I'm a bit partial because everything about her is so genuine which is shown in her work -- right down to the little faces on her polar bears, penguins, and all the other cuddly, playful characters that she paints. I have an original painting from Marisa, and a print of the little girl with the red balloon shown above. They'll ultimately end up in my future baby's room, but for now, I'm the baby in the house and these are in my office. You can buy her paintings here and at Etsy.
Ali also told me about lovely bird + treehouse artwork, an new artist to Velocity. Corinne only has a few paintings left, she is building quite a following, but if you've missed her paintings, she has prints up in her . You know, I really love how artists are reproducing their paintings as limited edition prints. This makes beautiful work accessible to all.
And of course, you can't visit Velocity without peeking in to see what artist is up to. He has some of the coolest paintings,lots of funky mid century colors and whimsical characters. So retro, and there's a definite masculine touch to his work, so it makes a great gift for that art lovin' man in your life. And yes, Matte has an Etsy store with tons of great prints . Psst: Mate has a , too.
