Ariel Kellogg - Patron Saint of wearable arts

We first discovered the fine works of Ariel Kellogg at the beginning of 2018 thanks to a very good friend indeed. Her website describes her as an artist and jewellery maker from Western New York, currently residing in St. Augustine, Florida. Fusing her background as an artist with her current business, Kellogg’s pieces are better off being considered “wearable art”. Bright, colourful, and fun, the jewellery seems to take on a life of it’s own, certainly in a world of it’s own, and seemingly begs potential buyers to be worn and loved. Often the Jewellery world has a bad habit...

Marissa A. Ross - Our Wine Spirit Guide

When we first discovered the humorous, sassy, and relatable wine columnist for Bon Appetit Magazine, Marissa A. Ross, we couldn’t believe our luck. Drinking copious amounts of delicious wine is a favourite past time of ours here at Odd Pears, however, we aren’t exactly sommeliers. Bless’ed be our luck, in late 2017 Ross bestowed upon the world a gift, she published her first book, Wine. All the time. A practical, unpretentious guide to buying, drinking and enjoying wine of all kinds, Wine. All the time is an essential handbook for anyone looking to invest in the wellbeing of...


Sujin Kim - A Lesson in Colourful Simplicity

Sujin Kim - A Lesson in Colourful Simplicity

We recently had the fortune of stumbling across the art and design work of supremely talented Sujin Kim, and boy are we happy about it. Colourful and fun, Kim’s work feels like you are walking through your favourite store and want to buy just about everything. The deeper you go into the store, the less decisive you become, until you reach the point where you ultimately decide you need everything or nothing. We’re sure that’s good for Kim, but perhaps not for our sanity.

The first thing that struck us about Kim’s work was the simplicity and the expert...


We love Amok Island's large-scale minimal, geometric murals of native Australian species

We love Amok Island's large-scale minimal, geometric murals of native Australian species

Amok Island is a Fremantle-based multi-disciplinary artist currently blowing our minds with his large-scale, geometric renderings of Australian native flora and fauna.

Originally from The Netherlands, Amok’s work drips with a bold, minimal, graphic design-like sensibility which he uses to refine and simplify. He applies his large, flat fields of colour and geometric shapes with sharp precision and accuracy to a myriad of surfaces; from small canvases in a gallery space to large-scale city walls, and monolithic silos in the desert.

Amok’s work is informed by his curiosity and fascinations with nature and our human...


Inès Longevial paints women with a romantic tenderness and bold strength

Inès Longevial paints women with a romantic tenderness and bold strength

We are in romantic cahoots with the dramatic and beautiful paintings of French artist and illustrator Inès Longevial.

Living and working in Paris, Inès has been painting for as long as she can remember. Taking inspiration from the classics like Picasso and Matisse, and reminiscing on her childhood memories spent painting in the French countryside, her resulting style is tender and romantic, yet strong and bold. She’s come a long way since her time spent with her pencils as a small child, being commissioned now by the likes of Nike, Levis, The New Yorker, Heineken and...
