The City Limits

My Modern Met is a place where art enthusiasts and trendspotters connect over creative ideas. It's the big city where everyone knows your name.

Big City Silhouettes (7 photos)

It's easy to feel insignificant in a big city. There are so many things to do, lots of cars, bikes, and scooters whizzing by, and tons of hectic street lights and urban noises all around us.

This series titled “People and Places” by English photographer Jasper James creates an interesting juxtaposition between the city of Beijing and its citizens. The… Continue

When Giant Children Ruled the City (8 photos)

A long, long time ago, giant children ruled the city. A force to be reckoned with, these gigantic cuties recklessly used the world as their playground. Picking up cars, and doing cartwheels in the streets, they threw temper tantrums causing many people to suffer. Here are some photos from Dmitriy Sklyarenko of Fafastudio that document that shocking scene.…

Urban HOTspot - Saint & Sinners: Culver City

Yesterday, I went to go check out Saint & Sinners in Culver City. I instantly liked the location and the outside decor of the place. I walked in around 10pm, there was no cover (yes!) and the place was crowded but not too packed. The lounge isn't too divey nor too preppy, it's a great spot for young professionals that want to get a drink without the fuss.… Continue

Mike Stilkey - Slightly All The Time @ Kinsey/DesForges Gallery: Culver City

Opening reception July 12, 7pm-10pm

What caught my eye about the work of Mike Stilkey isn't how he draws on paper, but how he draws on books. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts characters that often seem deep in thought, somber, and sometimes whimsical. A Los Angeles native, Mike's work will be shown until August 16th at the Kinsey/DesForges Gallery with the opening ceremony on July 12th from… Continue
