An Interview with Johanna Tagada

Tell me a little about what you do…

I am a painter and an interdisciplinary artist. Every day i work with mediums including painting, drawing, writing, photography, textile and publishing . I also run the online shop project Bonjour Supermarket (www.bonjoursupermarket.com), for which i design and produce exclusive textile pieces. I recently had a solo show and positive participative piece in Tokyo and some of my artworks are part of a current group show at the Brunei Gallery in London. I also happen to sometime be working as a consultant and art director.


You have an incredible eye for beautiful things. What inspires your aesthetic?

Thank you very much for the compliment!
Mostly my journeys, i love traveling. I am fascinated and fond of learning about traditional objects, textiles and art, i believe these also inspire my  aesthetic. Simple, Quality, Elegant and Fun, i would say those are the four by which I go.







What are five things you cannot live without?

I wouldn't say live without but just five objects i like having with me:
-An old photobooth of my father and myself
-A Mala my fiancé Jatinder gave me when we met
-The book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura
-The parfum Scent One: Hinoki by Monocle and x Comme des Garcons
-A little straw purse given by my grand mother, she herself got it from a trusted friend before she passed away.






See more after the jump!

To celebrate the first day of fall, we’re going to remember the good ol’ days of summertime.  New York based graphic designer, fashion photographer/videographer and artist Quan recently went on a trip to Roatán, Honduras and the images are just stunning. 

Sky blue waters and playful dolphins.  Sun kissed skin and bonfire nights.  Quan enchants us with his experience in Honduras.

RIP Joan Rivers

In the past month we have lost some great icons.  Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall and now Joan Rivers. 

We appreciate a good laugh and Joan did just that.  She was one of the few female comedians of the 1950’s and 1960’s to gain nationwide recognition.  Thanks to The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1965, Joan Rivers was seen as a comedic force to be reckoned with.

From The Ed Sullivan Show to Fashion Police, love her or hate her, you knew who Joan was.  Her quick wit and sassy jokes will always make her one of our favorites.
We’ll miss you Joan Rivers.



(June 8 1933 - September 4 2014)

Something For The Eye | Tokyo Street Style

Tokyo street style is what got me into fashion. I remember the moment my little sister introduced it to me and I was just speechless and we would buy every Fruits Magazine. Since then I always turn to Tokyo when I don't know what to wear.

One of my favorite sites is Drop Tokyo I love their selection and their photography.
Here's a selection of some recent shots.

RIP Robin Williams



"Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangrang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind."

For all the times you have put a smile on our face, we will continue to smile knowing you touched our hearts and homes.

We salute you, Captain.

Ours Gallery

"At OURS- We recognize our audience is broader and more diverse than what current stereotypes and cliches might limit. Through a distinct cross-section of art, music, and thoughtful design, we hope to build something unique with its perspective clearly defined... something that can remain our own.

OURS- Is designed in the United States, and made here when applicable. Currently based in Los Angeles, we're constantly on the road shooting, drawing, surfing, and traveling alongside everyone who can't stand the thought of being stationary for too long. The passion for being active outdoors, accompanied with the ability to feel and look nice, is what drives OURS. - We hope that you enjoy."

"Don't worry, be mellow." - Ty Williams
