Instagrammer of the week #022

I’ve featured Kurt Pio’s gorgeous work on the blog before and I was so enamoured by it that I had to follow him on Instagram of course (wow that sounds creepy!) If you’re not familiar with Kurt Pio, he is an artist from Cape Town and he does these amazing abstracts and gorgeous oversized faceted gems. I’ve found over the years that I like a particular style of art – kinda abstract, bold colours, especially black and white – and Kurt Pio’s work falls pretty much smack bang in the middle of it. Enjoy!

Moody hues

Do you ever have an overwhelming desire to totally switch out all the art that is hanging in your home? It must be a seasonal thing. As we down here tiptoe through autumn and onto the winter months I’m feeling less flowery and more moody seascape.

Do you get the moody winter blues or do you embrace single digit ℃’s with open (but cold) arms ?
