Book Review: Mini Edition of Creative Space – Creative Space looks at 30 homes, from New York to Tokyo, via London and Paris, of the designers, directors, stylists, artists, graffiti writers, curators, novelists and innovators who are pushing the boundaries of contemporary culture.
Filled with post-modern pop collectables, vintage junk finds, camouflage and graffiti, clothing and toy collections, these homes showcase quirky and original interior decoration.
Looking at these interiors city by city, among the 30 homes featured in the book are those of artist and designer Julie Verhoeven and Maharishi founder Hardy Blechmann in London, graffiti artist Fafi in Paris, artists Ryan McGinness and Wes Lang in New York, innovative creatives Jaybo and Lucio Auri in Berlin, Barcelona filmmaker Roger Gual, and Tokyo’s cult photographer Yasumasa Yonehara and artist Aya Takano. The spaces they inhabit and work in give a real image of today’s avant garde.
