Eco Art: Brad Miller Traverses the Elements in His New Exhibition at Edward Cella...

By Edward Cella, Owner of Edward Cella Art+Architecture How often are you struck by the intricately constructed beauty of nature? For Venice Beach based artist Brad Miller, that appreciation happens each day in his home and studio but was recent reinforced by an exhaustive excursion though the coastal waters and reefs surrounding Thailand and Myanmar. Upon returning, Miller embarked on the planning for debut exhibition at Edward Cella Art+Architecture in Los Angeles. Transforming the white box of the gallery into a laboratory to construct and present his insights into the fundamental mechanisms of existence, one comes to appreciate that Miller is a naturalist at heart and has built upon these universal relationships which have appeared in various contexts throughout his career.

Trying on Zero Waste Fashion

By Jessica Borges, LuxEco Living Editorial Assistant Fashion design is an art, and just like other art forms such as writing, cooking, and painting, you need to scrap the first drafts and unruly pieces before producing your masterpiece. But with these scraps come a never-ending contribution to landfills and further pollution to our environment. This awareness has fueled designers in the fashion industry to attempt “zero waste fashion.”

Vincensia DiIorio remembers the great Maria Callas

“Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore.” These are the first two phrases that Tosca sings in her famous Act 2 aria, “Vissi d’arte.” The English translation means, “I lived for art, I lived for love.” Puccini’s Tosca was one of Maria Callas’ most infamous operatic roles and the prime example of life imitating art. Callas’ life ended on September 16, 1977 in a Paris apartment. It is said that she died of a broken heart as did opera singer Floria Tosca at the end of the opera. Callas had an extra special gift which was reflected in the art form of opera. Transforming passion through music for the world to hear was what she sacrificed her life for.

WATCH: Bel Canto Pop!

By Amanda Nisenson, Opera Singer and LuxEco Advocate The night before I was born, my mother was reading an article about Beverly Sills, (May 25, 1929 – July 2, 2007) the famous opera singer who performed for huge audiences around the world. My Great Aunt used to brag about how she knew Beverly Sills growing up in Brooklyn, and how much she enjoyed being friends with “Bubbles,” as Ms. Sills was called then. The article continued to explain that this nickname was given to her because she was born with Bubbles in her mouth. The next day, June 17th was the day that I came into the world, and to my mother’s great surprise, I was born with Bubbles in my mouth. She could not believe the coincidence, and announced to the doctor that I would become a singer! Years later, shortly before Beverly Sills died, my mother had the great fortune to meet the legendary singer, and actually got the opportunity to ask in person, if she did indeed know my Great Aunt. After a questionable pause, Ms. Sills burst out laughing in recollection of this zany character from her childhood.
