Here’s a challenge: name an actress whose repertoire spans decades, carries the title of actress, producer, and director, trained from an early age in theatre and continues to make annual appearances in multimillion-dollar blockbusters.
She’s played the role of The Queen of England six times. She’s an activist, a Tony, Emmy, Oscar award-winning actress, and an overall icon. She is Dame Helen Mirren.
Few artists emerge on the creative horizon as brilliantly sculpted and powerfully dynamic as the young Vienna artist, Marie Therese Madani. The ultra-complex and emotion-infused paintings bring the conversation to all audiences and wavering dialogue between forces.
Often times we see artists who fit their genre to a T, but others can traverse outside of their set style and take up various sounds at once. The South African band BLK JKScan not be pinned down to just one genre, as they capture the mixed sounds of punk, rock, African soul, and jazz in their impressive discography. After a 12-year-long hiatus, the band has returned with their highly-anticipated sophomore album, “Abantu/ About Humans.”
Fashion is a form of expression and it’s exciting to find up-and-coming designers who try new and bold concepts in the industry. But, who knew bold could be so familiar?

Sometimes, I’ll throw on a solid varsity jacket for a street-wear getup, maybe a black windbreaker for a tech-wear-inspired outfit, and if all else fails, I know I can’t go wrong with a full-on normcore of t-shirt and jeans.
Art has a unique way of teaching us about the world we live in, while also serving as a way to document the state of the world for future generations. There are different types of art designed to do just that, while catering to your different senses and emotions. Music and poetry play to the emotions of the audience while allowing them to create an image in their own minds. Visual art like paintings, sculptures, and movies takes viewers on a journey that they’re able to experience with the creator.
