A collection of my favorite art.
A smorgasbord of paintings, architecture, and anything that makes the world a little more beautiful.
First up: My favorite painting of all time: "Port de Marseille" by Paul Signac
"Worlds" by @porterrobinson is the best live performance I've ever seen.
Worlds was more than music.
It was a journey, an adventure, and an autobiography.
"In 20 Steps" by Studio Drift knocked me off my feet when I saw it at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
Like a bird, it moves with grace + shines with elegance.
It's a tribute to human flight.
And a testament to humanity's ability to defy gravity.
One tip for every New Yorker: Look up!
New York's Art Deco architecture is spectacular.
During the day time, high rises stand above the clouds. At night, they crown themselves with the stars.
A celebration of progress, modernity and the ever-replenishing future.
Love this 1936 painting of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Not for the aesthetics, but for what it represents.
The painting radiates with optimism, vibrates with dynamic energy, and glows like the windows of a church.
I'll never forget Richard Mosse’s video installation at the NGV in Melbourne, Australia.
Using military-grade thermal cameras, Mosse captured the experience of refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Europe.
The Sydney Opera House is extraordinary.
The perfect blend of design and engineering.
As one architect said: “The sun did not know how beautiful its light was, until it was reflected off this building.”
Yep, the architecture in heaven looks just like the Sydney Opera House.
The Alhambra is an architectural masterpiece.
In its architecture, we saw the symmetries of the universe — years before we had the mathematical language to describe them.
The pools, patterns, and arcades will leave you speechless.
