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.
Dominic Boudreault created this impressive time-lapse video which reminds me of our home. The video took over a year to make and was shot in Manhattan, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, and Chicago from late 2010 to early 2011. "The City Limits” is complete with dramatic music from Hans Zimmer.
If you saw this image of a cigarette from far away, you'd probably think there was nothing special about it. Look a little bit closer, however, and you'll be blown away by the amount of detail that went into creating Cigarette Ash City.

I wanted to re-feature this post because even after the last two years, it's still one of my personal favorites...
This collection by Miru Kim truly blows me away. Taking naked self-portraits in places we wouldn't dare visit, Miru draws beauty from old and abandoned subway stations, tunnels, aqueducts, catacombs, factories, hospitals, and morgues. It…

Picking up cars, and doing cartwheels in the streets, they threw temper tantrums causing many people to suffer.

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

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
