aesthetic interests - my aesthetic is constantly evolving but Scandinavian simplicity, travel, landscape, nature, cosmos, monochrome, grunge/focal, fashion, kawaii/pastel, architectural (especially soviet), tone on tone, jo-ha-kyū and anything pushing boundaries will always have a place in my heart and on my Ello board. I am also captivated by different cultures and their one of a kind aesthetics.
approach to curation - I see inspiration for my curated content everywhere - galleries, concerts (Emily Haines + TSS and The Killers at the moment), exhibitions, magazines (my favourite are LOVE, Jalouse, Communication Arts, V, W, Paper, 1 Granary, Œ, Sum Zine, System, Hypebeast, EYESCREM, Sense, Vestoj, Print, National Geographic, Depesha, Buro 24/7, LÁV), coffee table books, nature, travel, music videos, movies, Behance, Ello (especially @ellonew and @photogrist), Tumblr, Instagram (I'm obsessed with by CHLOE right now). I love mixing old with new, original with borrowed, static with dynamic, monochrome with radiant, simple with busy, boring with shocking. I also enjoy sharing art that does not look valuable at first sight but grows on you after multiple looks as well as art that challenges one's views and general status quo.
the type of art or artists you want to promote - I go for graphic design art pieces paired with photography and sprinkled with some gif images on top to keep it interesting. I love the fact that Ello recognizes and appreciates new faces; that's one of the main reasons I kept coming back for more - posting more and more content and also frequently losing sleep over 6 hour Ello discover sessions. I would love sharing the work of Ello new comers with the work of already established Ello creators while adding in art works not yet present on Ello. Last night while ello-ing instead of sleep-ing, I discovered these Elloers and if given a chance, I would absolutely love to share their work: @katielovecraft @pmo @andres_marti @ugdtg @lloydgalbraith @aeforia @jessicavwalsh @elisemesner @velvetspectrum @cphmxp @alannakkash @anthonysamaniego @haydiroket @youngmufasa @eastlos
about me - ello everyone! My name is Martina and I am Europe raised, Canada based content creator obsessed with art, pop culture and fashion. I like pursuing projects I am passionate about so that's why I started Langara Digital Club that helps students gain relevant digital and social media skills, co-founded Soju Events, a Vancouver based K-pop events agency, and that's also the main reason why I am entering this contest. I've been curating since very young age by cutting out magazine photographs, my black and white drawings, book images and even pieces of fabrics and gluing it to my notebook which I called Eintopf. You can see my collage examples here, here, here, here and here (I'm proud of this, this and this). And you can learn more about me here.
