I am a huge fan of Kevin Van Aelst. His work finds so much magic in daily life and objects that might be deemed simply functional (note the sea full of sailboats created out of blue painter’s tape!). His use of colour, whether it is the perfect shade of purple for a diner counter or a keyboard made of Pantone chips, is similarly striking and full of imagination. In addition to his own work, Kevin creates a weekly piece for “The Medium” in the New York Times Magazine. As you can see from the length of this post, it is so hard to pick even a few favourites! Perhaps it is the Vancouverite in me but I really love the final photo above created out of raindrops. Its title? “And All I ask is a Tall Ship and a Star to Sail Her By”. Beautiful.
