Ladies and Gentlemen Studio

I love the work of Ladies and Gentlemen Studio. I was at SAM shop the other day, and everything that caught my eye was from them. Their products seamlessly integrate old-world feel with modern times.

I’m so lucky to be living in a city filled with such creative minds.

Do-Hu Suh – Some/One



This was an assignment in RISD when Do-Hu Suh was attending. The precept of the assignment was about identity, and this is what he came out with. Who said School Projects can’t be museum worthy? He’s definitely an inspiration to me! Also, I just love how little things such as dogtags in this case, put together can be something so magnificent.

Alexander Calder



Alexander Calder’s Eagle is one of my favorite sculptures in Sculpture Park. It literally stands out among others because of its size and color. You can see this piece even a couple blocks away. I think that the merging of the steel parts together is poetic. I think of a ballerina’s posture and grace when I see this piece, which is something remarkable because you don’t usually associate big steel sculptures with something so gentle, delicate and graceful.

Tony Smith



I love living in Seattle, and having places like the Sculpture Park to explore. Being more involved in the art scene is definitely a goal when I get back home. Tony Smith’s sculptures capture visitors by its giant scale. Its well-thought of placement throughout Sculpture Park makes passersby curious about the pieces. Aesthetically, its strength lies on the clean lines against the trees and cityscape in the background.
