All my generation knows is work, work, #WERK. I battle with it too. But, there comes a time when work must take a backseat to living life. I mean when hustle and bustle is all you know, and there is no time for even a joke you need to take a deep breathe, reflect and let it go. This is our remedy for the Tuesday Blues. I give you Issue 10 of Art Nouveau M[...]

Issue 5: New Art, New Money

•••
When I get back from outer space I might notice the little things. Time for instance. Whether good times are in abundance or not, the clock is still rolling. Or the unrelenting love from peers. And especially the unashamed smile in my mother’s voice when I tell her I’m moving home to Miami, and not New York. I call it trading hustles for muscles. When[...]

A Few PBRs, Joint Passes & Laughs At CMYK Show At the Basement

•••
As a child, I always loved stories. My favorite ones were the ones like "The Wizard of Oz" or "Alice In Wonderland". A child escaping her humdrum town and landing in a magical world of the bizarre and mystifying all while having the absolute time of their lives with some seedy and unique characters. Fadia Kader's CMYK show hosted by Atlanta based musician,[...]

It’s Sunday evening at the New Era store in Downtown, Atlanta. The hat store is buzzing with life as media and fans begin to pack in for the event that is set to take place: a free J*Davey performance.

Savvy Society feat RAHBI - What's That Sound? (Remix)

•••
It ain't a drug making her do it. It ain't her boyfriend making her do it. Maybe this video is making her do it. But it's all in the music. These are words by singer/songwriter RAHBI that appear on "What's That Sound." You may remember this song as the infectious opening track for Art Nouveau & GreatEclectic's music compilation Noise Porn. We're back[...]

Groupies Just Want to Have Fun

•••
The girl on the step in front of me is twerking so hard that every time she makes her butt clap, my face gets pimp slapped by a jiggling cheek. I’ve tried blaming it on the angle of the steps that are causing her derriere to be right in my eye line, but I’ve never been good at lying to myself. I’ve tried to put it all on her and tell myself that no human[...]

Out With The Old, In With The Nouveau: Three Years Of Art Nouveau

•••
They always say don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Agreed. But there’s nothing wrong with being attracted to a book simply by the visual splendor an issue gives. The inside can be magnificent, but if the cover isn’t right, it isn’t going to print. It was months before I found the image I wanted to use for the first issue, shown above a piece by Ron Englis[...]
