Pablo Picasso used to say this, “every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”
I’m not gonna preach about how to be an artist to you guys :) though I do agree with the statement above. Everyone has their own ‘creative’ side in different ways and it grows if you let it grow.
Your creativity will step forward by keeping your imagination grows, too. And it is a good thing when you can expand your creativity by looking for
And on this post I’ll share some inspirational people that inspired me a lot recently. Most of them about photography.
“Oh, the Goddess of the most exquisite blog in the universe if I may say. Everything about Park&Cube is on point. Yes, EVERYTHING”
Shini Park, the founder of Park&Cube is definition of amazing. Super
supersuper talented and her job is such a dreaaaaaaam job!
The content, the photos, the art direction, the fonts!, the lay-outs, and how she writes her posts is KILLER. Distinct and very tasteful. It’s hard to say if I’m not a big fan of her work. I mean, you guys know so well that I’m the biggest fan of Alice Gao, but Shini is one of a kind. Honestly, I knew Shini’s blog when Alice posted about her trip to UK and finally met Shini in person. Since then I fell in love with Park&Cube. I guarantee you will spend hours reading her blog (what are you waiting for?).
And you know what I love the most from gorgeous bloggers outside there, they’ll inspire you how they grow. I used to read Alice’s stories when she moved to NYC to pursue her passion in photography, capturing many coffee-shops and her food with an iPhone and her Canon, until she’s on her stage today. And I found ‘that’ too when I read Shini’s old posts. Looking at her old photographs and her recent ones makes me think ‘you imagine what you desire’.
“If you want to cry by looking pictures above, don’t worry, YOU ARE NOT ALONE”
I was almost cried when I saw Teppo posted –“oh I don’t have words to describe it!!”- amazing sceneries from Greenland where he spent a whole summer this year. Two reasons, number one, how breathtaking the Greenland is (and it’s on the same earth you and me are living guys!). Two, Teppo is extremely talented, NO DOUBT. The last reason is the most thing I adore from him. He has sharp eyes for beauties indeed.
Oh OK, I probably have to tell you this ; I might call it “hate?” no, that’s not it, “jealous”? I don’t think either. So, what is the word then? mesmerize? I don’t know. When you know somebody and feel that ‘oh my God, he’s still soooo much younger than me and that’s not fair!” (I assume you know what I mean). A little bit ‘jelly’ with Teppo cause he’s still young and full of talent in photography I must confess, but good news is we became a friend from Instagram (still remember how I screamed when he sent me a photograph of ices floating on the sea in Greenland through WhatsApp!).
“Noah Mills’s Instagram shows his talent in photography”
I’m not following Paris, Milan or New York Fashion Week, though I love to see how wild and crazy creativity in fashion world are. If you’re among of those ‘fashionista’ who always get a front-row invitation or you’re a real fashion blogger, you must know who Noah Mills is.
Since I found his Instagram through ‘explore’ page, I found that he always post beautiful pictures from his daily life. He’s not like those models or public figures, oh let me make this clear, I do hate ‘so-so’ public figures who post pictures with their endorse products on Instagram. If they are nicely captured that’s not a problem, but if it’s tacky post, oh come on I know I shouldn’t say this since that is their right on an era like this but I have a right too to speak my mind, nah? :)
Noah is different. I felt like he maintains his page on a simply yet tasteful way. Even when I saw a cup of his morning coffee in a black and white stripes cup placed on a wooden table, it was so artistic. If you are in doubt with my opinion, look at his page here. Let me know if we are on the same page!
“I didn’t pick inspirations only from Shini, Teppo and Noah. I still have three people who for me, their stories and passions are inspiring too”
Are you a dessert person
I’m crazy with dessert? Love sweets and stylish decorated cakes? You must know Caroline Khoo, open this page and tell me she’s blown you away with her craft like she did to me!
And the last one is Audrey, a traveller and professional travel blogger on thatbackpacker. She shares a lot of travel stories that I trust, it will tease you to pack your things and explore this world more often. You may like to read her ‘post-uni blue’, it’s so interesting!
