The Interrogator with Chloe Wise

To call Chloe Wise an “art world darling” seems uniquely demeaning, though one might be quick to use it in reference to the young multidisciplinary artist. “Darling,” a kindly enough word, does not quite confer the heft and robustness of Wise’s many attributes. “Darling” seems incapable of encapsulating her intelligence,...

Jason Pomeranc Curates Hospitality Design Mag

Hoteliers know how to create an environment. That’s what they do. Art is hung, furniture placed, lighting positioned just so.

In the Studio with Joey Wolf

LA-based artist Joey Wolf is hard to find. He doesn’t use a cell phone. One website link turns up dead; another site, a blog, hasn’t been updated since 2012–the dated bio reads: Artist, 24, dreads, blue eyes, Light brown Jacket, Best way to contact me is in person. A “Joey Wolf” query...

The Interrogator with Joana Avillez

Joana Avillez’s heritage is legion. A successful young illustrator and fourth-generation New Yorker, Avillez comes from a long line of creative stock: her mother, Gwenn Thomas, a photographer and painter; her late father, Martim Avillez, an illustrator; her great-grandmother, Blanche Oelrichs, a poet. That thread is apparent in Avillez’s...
