Malek, Honey

I'm a Southern California girl who grew up between the ocean, mountains and deserts in a magical place called the San Fernando Valley. In the 1980's, it was definitely the place to be if you were an aspiring Yuppie and wanted all of the advantages of living in Beverly Hills without the Beverly Hills price tag. Although I was a child at the time, my passion for photography started then. Armed with a “work horse” Nikon FE that my dad had given me, I began documenting my life and my friends through photographs that I organized in albums.
I not only take pictures of neon relics and other public art, I infuse extra touches of “vintage-ness” to them with color and texture. If you've ever had a photo album that held the pictures in place with that glue adhesive that turned brown over time and stopped sticking to the filmy protective sheet or noticed that your color images from 30 years ago were beginning to turn yellow and the highlights were beginning to fade, but you still liked the results, you'd appreciate my style of photography. Although I've concentrated more on Los Angeles because at one time we were the neon lights capital of the world, I've come to realize that every city in the world has a piece of neon history and although it may be broken and forgotten, it's still waiting for its spotlight. And that's where I come in.



Maleki, Ferdos


Search for products by this Artist >>

Ferdos Maleki was born to a loving family and raised predominantly by her grandmother in the city of Rasht, on the Caspian Coast of Iran. Since her earliest years, Ferdos was fascinated by concepts involving universal connectedness and was naturally drawn to the arts. Her grandmother turned her on to the intoxicating words of Hafez and Rumi, and as a young child she brought those stories to life in her paintings.
Her Persian name means “paradise,” a fitting association with her current work that serve as internal portraits of dreamy, atmospheric, transcendental spaces. Layered colors reveal the voice of an emerging abstractionist, portraying texture and tones that mimic the journey of nature’s wonderment. Her interpreted landscapes show an increasingly sophisticated sensibility for the ways in which forms and space interact from a spiritualist stance.
Ferdos lives in Laguna Beach, California and has been instructing students in drawing and design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising since 2000. She also volunteers in her community, sharing her knowledge and joy of spirituality and meditation in open courses.

McCavitt, Naomi

Naomi was born in Richmond VA in 1980 and began making artwork shortly thereafter. Early experimentations as a child invovled cutting, rearanging, painting and drawing on books. Her work has continued in this vein thoughout her career as she is constantly recontextualizing objects with a history. Using resources from the past allows for the inherent aesthetic value - and the meaning contained within to shine through in these new compositions. She writes, "By rearranging these elements, I am able to tell new stories where conquerors and colonizers are dwarfed by hot wilderness, where new species of plants emerge as hybrid, where nature resists cataloging by clumping together in beautiful defiance. Each composition is a secret wish, an alchemic spell to rewrite the stories of human history. Nature becomes the protagonist. I revel in the wild, the ridiculous, and the naïve, and allow them freely in my work."

Munting, Abraham

Abraham Munting was an eminent professor of botany and chemistry at the University of Groningen. He was encouraged in his medical and botanical studies by his father Heinrich. As a young man Abraham traveled extensively, visiting England, Germany, Italy, and spent considerable time in France. Munting eventually returned to Groningen, where he taught at the university for more than twenty- four years and founded one of the most extensive botanical gardens of the period, known as the ‘Paradise of Groningen,’ which he directed from 1658 until his death in 1683.Munting is best known for his botanical plates, which radically departed from the traditional florilegium, presenting plant species against a landscape background. The illustrations are remarkable for their elegance and originality. Each plate shows a different plant in flower, including many exotic species from America and other distant lands. The plant dominates the foreground, filling the entire page, often with a detail of the fruit or flowers presented on a smaller scale. In some cases the plants are arranged in decorated urns or depicted with gardening tools. The name of each plant appears written on an elegantly fluttering ribbon or cartouche, or on a crumbling marble plaque. The originality of the work lies in the small landscapes that have been inserted into the background. Here the artist gave free reign to his imagination, delineating scenes that in reality bore little relation to the actual habitat of the plant.

Nozeman, Cornelius


Search for products by this Artist >>

Nozeman, a Dutch minister and ornithologist provided the inspiration for one of the finest works on ornithology – Nederlandsche Vogelen 1770-1829.It was a unique collaborative effort of two Dutch masters, a project of huge scope and ambition, taking over 60 years to complete. The renowned engraver & artist Christiaan Sepp drew the illustrations & Nozeman wrote the text for the first two volumes.The first volume was published by Sepp’s son, Jan Christiaan, a bookseller with a strong background in natural history and engraving. In 1775, Cristiaan Sepp died and Jan Cristiaan completed the second volume. In 1786 Nozeman died, with most of the descriptions for the second volume written (published in 1789). Thus, it was the first two volumes which were directly created by these renowned ornithologists, artists & engravers.
Martinus Houttuyn continued the work for the third volume (published in 1797). Hottuyn died in 1798, and it was not until 1809 that the fourth volume was published, without the name of the writer. Interestingly, the whole venture was completed in 1829 by Jan Sepp, the son of Jan Cristiaan with assistance from Coenraad Jacob Temminck. Thus, three generations if the illustrious Sepp family were involved in this project of six decades, a truly remarkable feat.
These super- sized, hand colored copper plate engravings, superbly composed and meticulously engraved and colored were an expensive proposition indeed. Upon the final publication, it was the costliest book ever published, selling for 525 Dutch Florins in 1829 or over $6,000 in tody’s currency, a great sum at that time let alone now.References: Fine Bird Books, Natural History Prints and the National Library of the Netherlands website
