A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

SMILING FACES

Photos By Sydni Michael for Wine & Bowties The other day KP was like, “Damn, Max is all about the moments…” I couldn’t disagree. It’s all about the memories. Eilly knows. When it’s all said and done and we’re about to close our eyes for the last time, we won’t care about the missed calls […]

Once again, Mr. West has put me up on some shit I needed to know about. To be real, Ye’s new blog is amazing, and it’s a cool reimagination of what a blog can really be. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s take a moment to consider the work of French […]

To put it simply, there’s no place in world quite like the Bay. The energy, the communities and the ways in which people see the world are all unique to the strange and beautiful place I call home. At the same time, you would think that in a place where folks pride themselves on liberal […]

Roughly the size of Texas, and containing close to 3.5 million tons of trash, the Great Pacific Waste Patch is the world’s largest waste dump and is seriously threatening Pacific ocean life. The main problem is plastic. Since it’s not biodegradable, if plastic is not buried in a landfill, it is eventually swept into the […]

Photos By Sydni Michael for Wine & Bowties The first time I stepped inside Reserve I wasn’t sure what to do. With two lounge seats positioned in the middle of the room, it’s hard to tell whether Reserve is a space for shopping, or merely a place to congregate. In actuality, it’s both. Inhabited by […]

I think if you truly have a passion for something there’s very little that can stop you. With passion, in the bleakest of times, you’ll find a way. This is my introduction to street drumming, and perhaps it is yours as well. Who knew cats got down like this? I don’t know, there’s just something […]

PICTURES > WORDS

Ladies and gentleman, I’ve come to a stark realization at 3:26PM. Today, I’ve realized that text messages are played out. They’re boring. They’re impersonal. They’re generic. Anyone can push some buttons with their thumbs. But who can show you the world through their eyes? It’s a little more work, but if you mean it then […]

BACK IN THE U.S.S.R.

Ukrainian Graphic designer Mykola Dosenko on NES graphics, vintage hoops and dinner with Bill Murray

Recently I had the opportunity to chat with Mykola Dosenko, also known as Myk Dawg. Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Mykola’s inspirations paint an interesting portrait of popular culture in the late 80’s and early 90’s. A self proclaimed graphic designer, celebrity chef, comedian and stunt driver, it was not difficult to strike up […]

TOKYO/GLOW

Something about massive urban centers at night is just so damn beautiful. Tokyo, in particular is one of those places you never get tired of looking at. Tokyo/Glow is the collaborative work of director Jonathan Bensimon and footwear brand The Generic Man, showing the journey of an illuminated man through the city streets of Tokyo. […]

Photos By Tiago Sperotto for Wine & Bowties Until I came across Jenkins Jellies, the only jellies I was aware of were the ones associated with peanut butter. Little did I know how much more there was. While strolling through the L.A. Street Food Fest two weeks ago, I happened upon a tray of crackers […]
