BANNED, MARRIED AND A SURPRISE!

Isn’t it ironic? The last time the FB drones diddled with us (which, as everyone knows, is because somebody you’re supposedly friends with on FB wants to feel nasty-powerful and “reports” you), the chill-effect was a bit different.

JOHNNY NICOLORO CAPTURES THE POWER OF THE FLOWER DURING "NAKED AND LUSH"

There’s a new show bringing springtime back to the desert. As the cool weather fades and the green leaves on the palm trees begin to blossom back to life, Ted Casablanca artist, Johnny Nicoloro, takes the chance to capture the beautiful flowers he comes across in the desert during the gallery’s “Naked and Lush” exhibit.

Nicoloro’s images, comprised of brilliantly colored flower prints and one-of-a kind chairs, expose his love for flowers and beautiful floral patterns. The flowers themselves either comes from the ones that he has come upon out in the world, flowers people have given him, or flowers that he has bought specifically to shoot. He mentions that the beauty and the joy that flowers bring constantly amaze him.
