Mexican-born artist Gabriel Dawe has been getting a lot of online attention lately, and rightfully so, his newest collection of works, entitled Plexus, showing at the Dallas Museum of Contemporary Art is truly stunning. Using specially died, specially crafted threads he weaves together large scale overlays of the colored strings, to create moods and atmospheric illusions. I hope his work travels to other parts of the US soon, i would very much like to experience this in person.

Mexican design and art direction studio Anagrama caught my eye earlier this year with their exquisite work for Theurel & Thomas, artisan macaroon makers. Anagrama’s work is clean, modern and sleek, with bright bursts of color (espeically on the ZOOM branding), that almost treat their mediums as an artist would with a paints, showing restraint and adding elements where it is only absolutely necessary.
