Arty friends, hold on to your hats. The works of Portland artist, Yellena James, have just tempted me to hide every napkin scrawl and phone book doodle I've ever rendered and sorta liked. Her remarkable works of ink and paint have graced the walls of galleries all the way from LA to the UK and are now tickling the fancy of more than just art snobs. Look for her intricate works to debut (if they haven't already) in collaboration with brands like Rojo Magazine, Keds, Nike, Anthropologie, Adidas and K2 Snowboards.I need this in my life (and my living room.) You too? Lucky us—prints can be found in her Etsy shop...for a reasonable price too.
Her partnership with period lighting manufacturer, Schoolhouse Electric, is clearly a match made in heaven. Can't wait to see what's next for this artist!
