Li Hongbo | Out Of Paper



I was amazed when I saw an instavideo yesterday and intrigue by his art. 
Meet Li Hongbo


A former book editor and designer, trained in a variety of artistic fields from Fine to Folk and Experimental art. Li Hongbo plays with the appearances and connotations of paper. The material is to him an endless source of inspiration and interpretation. Li Hongbo observed that honeycomb paper is a folk art present  in many aspects of life in China, from children's toys to festive decorations. Dismantling one such object, he discovered now simply it is made and the mazing flexibility, resilience and strength of the paper material once buit into layers of hexagonal cubes. The artist reproduces the mechanical process manually, making it a painstaking craft which requires a whole new level of perfection to achieve the machine made rendering. The thousands of layers of brown paper are cut, folded and glue together to look like what they originated from: wood. The artist then carves the blok of paper as if he was sculpting wood. Common brown paper, usually associated with wrapping and meant to be discarded,is them interpreted in shapes of much more valued objects, such as a pair of porcelain vases or even human figures, to give it a whole new significance.

Coachella 2013 - Day 1

We did it again and it was amazing! 
Nothing makes me happier than to hang out with my friends, and Coachella is the perfect excuse to do just that; beautiful weather, music and arts. It's the time to let loose, forget about the important things, feel free, take long walks across the field to the other tents, see people you never see, laugh, drink and enjoy life! 
And now the part we love... the good moments and the fashion...

I've never seeing so many photographers at Coachella ever before, I really don't know how she handles it, I guess thats part for being famous, right? The funny thing is that the pictures are all over the internet and I became Candice Swanepoel and Ludi became Miranda Kerr...  lol

Festival Fashion - Tips and Inspirations


It is almost Coachella time and I am so excited as always! Not sure exactly what I'm going to wear but I have several ideas as I collect cool things throughout the year thinking about the festival. Music festival fashion varies from festival to festival due to the style of music and weather. 
Packing for Coachella is always a lot of fun, it allows you to be a little extravagant and wear things you wouldn't wear on a daily basis.  Last year was freezing and I'm praying for the perfect weather this year, being cold can get in the way of having fun and enjoying the festival. Comfortable shoes is a must, if you really want to explore the festival you will be walking tons.  I know we girls like to feel sexy so if you choose to wear heels pick a square one or wedges. Coachella Valley is in California and that means desert weather, so usually you will be really hot during the day and cold at night so I suggest you bring stockings, leggings, jackets or whatever layer to add to your outfit.
Now, what exactly to wear at Coachella?  Cutoff shorts is always a hit, fun t-shirts, fringe, bohemian dresses, bright colors, tie dye, hats, scarfs, lots of fun jewelry, sunglasses... I believe this year we will see lots of mix prints, crop tops, overalls (that will make your run to the bathroom a bit more complicated, specially if you don't have vip tickets) mirrored sunglasses, baseball caps, fun nail art... just let it loose and wear anything you want as there are no rules.
What about your bag? A girl must carry some sort of bag, right? Or you will be the type to rent a space on your friends purse? I usually do backpacks as  it doesn't get on my way... after a while it becomes part of my body and I have everything I need inside like my extra layers, gum, lighter, lip balm,  make-up, camera, iPhone extra battery, sunglass case to store when the nigh comes, ID, money, a sarong to lay on the grass and other things that wouldn't fit in a cross body bag.
I hope my suggestions are helpful and don't forget to hash tag #coachellainspiresmi on Instagram so I can post your pics here on InspiresMi of your killer style!
See you at Coachella!
