Public Art: Making Our Cities More Beautiful

If you’ve ever traveled to a major city and have noticed and admired a statue in a park or a mural on the side of a building, you have been artistically moved by a piece of public art. Commissioned with the intention of both beautifying and enriching the surrounding area, public art is by definition any kind of artwork that is accessible to any and every one. A common false assumption is that public art is funded solely by public finds. However, that is not always the case considering how a good portion of public art is either donated by patrons or artists themselves. Classic examples of public art include commemorative statues and sculptures as mentioned before, along with murals, outdoor paintings, and fountains. But public art can also be a bit more discreet when one stops to consider the architecture of restored historical buildings – that too is a form of public art.Tree Falls Photography - Mahlstedt Gallery - 66 Downtown New Rochelle has some fantastic examples of public art – among the most notable is the exhibition of the fleur de lis artist competition during the recent art walk. MALO, represented by Mahlstedt Gallery, was one of the artists selected to paint one of the 5-foot sculptures. 1002888_10203745919355426_4670094736247388952_n   Aside from aesthetic beauty, this project evoked thoughts about international culture and history – all in honor of the city’s 325th anniversary.

As you can see, this wasn’t MALO’s first time creating public art.


Simple Interior Design Ideas with Pantone’s Radiant Orchid

As you may know, every year color-authoritarian PANTONE selects a “Color of the Year” and as a result it ignites the minds of designers and artists alike to create a flurry of new projects and ideas that integrate their selected color.

For 2014, PANTONE selected “Radiant Orchid” as its trendsetting tone – one could say it’s a shade of purple that leans closer to magenta than it does indigo. Right away, one is struck by the color’s feminine and exotic qualities. After all, its namesake is famous for its unique-yet organic beauty. This was a much bolder choice than last year’s gender-neutral “Emerald” and “Tangerine Tango” the year before that.

By now we’ve seen “Radiant Orchid” emerge in Spring and Summer fashion runways, as well as in dozens of new make-up collections, claiming “Orchid is the new Rouge.” Overall, “Radiant Orchid” has been a huge success because admittedly it’s tons of fun to throw in a pop of color in your wardrobe. Women wear it effortlessly on their shoes, purses, and dresses. Men have even been seen with “Radiant Orchid” socks and ties.

Despite its success in the fashion and cosmetic world, we can why see people would much more reluctant to incorporate this trend into the home. It’s a very particular color that seems difficult to immerse in home that has an already established palette. But with hope to inspire your inner interior designer, we’ve included below a list of ways to give your home a touch of “Radiant Orchid.”

 For those who may be a bit color-shy or on a limited budget, we suggest adding candles, hand towels, or even a bouquet of flowers as simple ways of incorporate “Radiant Orchid” into your home.

For those with a more flexible budget, we suggest adding a throw blanket, a table lamp, a bohemian duvet cover, or even painting an old side table can be an easy way to implement the new color.

For those who do not fear color we invite you to consider a dazzling colored chandelier, new artwork, or even “Radiant Orchid” colored upholstery.

Disney Gets Risqué


ISDP4 love finding new artwork that pushes the boundaries of the ordinary. Disney’s grasp of the princess icons has long been the subject of inspiration for many artists, often being re-imagined as more alluring and downright sexy.SDP3 Here we have artists integrating our favorite Disney ladies into the classic pin-up style, accentuating the curves and voluptuous beauty of a woman’s body, yet still staying true to each individual character. I’m willing to say that this new mode of “fan-fiction” has not only become its own artistic movement, but one of incredible power. This idea can be connected to the work of artists such as Daniel Merriam.












 Have you seen Frozen?

Elsa, Disney’s newly inducted princess, may have live in an ice castle, but she is by far the hottest princess to be animated under the Disney logo. The film’s show-stopping musical number focuses on her transformation from timidity into empowerment. But it’s not just her gaining confidence that makes such a hot topic. By the end of her song, Elsa is donning a sleek, icy-blue, off-the-shoulder dress with a slit up to her thigh, tousled her braid, leaving her bangs to flow freely, and last but not least—rouges up her lipstick.Elsa1




“The cold never bothered me anyway.”





What’s not to love?
