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.

Thirty Sundays

When photographer Veronica Sanchis Bencomo first received a Polaroid camera and 3 packs of film from her boyfriend during the Christmas of 2011, she had no idea what to photograph.
But on May 13th 2012, Veronica decided to start a photo project called Thirty Sundays.

"Monday to Friday is my full time job, so those days got rapidly ignored… But soon I realized that Saturdays are not the same as Sundays… I’ve heard so many people saying “I hate Sundays” or “When I was young I hated Sundays” But when I think about my Sundays, a lot of different things come to mind. Obviously, the way I spend my Sundays has kept changing throughout my life."

With her Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S in hand, Veronica would take a photo each Sunday of where she was at and what she was doing.  Each Polaroid tells a story of that Sunday.

New Reads: Gather Journal



Gather Journal is a recipe-driven magazine dedicated to the aspects of gathering: to dine, drink, harvest, and cook. Designed to inspire and to last.

This Spring/Summer 2014 desert issue, uses the keyword "Caravan" as a guide to spark creativity in an array of recipes using ingredients from the desert inspired by destinations near and far.



Being passionately curious about food, I always plan my trips around tasting new dishes and cuisines shared with others. Food tastes better on an adventure. Picture this: You're resting in a blanket underneath the night sky, listening to the quiet symphony of the desert. Your hunger gives you perspective on the world.



Below are some food and drink recipes I found interesting:













Whether you turn to the desert for an oasis or a retreat, it brings you closer to reflect on the outdoors and the nature within yourself.

If you want to purchase Gather Journal, stop by Hennessey + Ingalls or shop online.

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.

GRIDSCAPE Opening

Join us Saturday, August 9th, 6-9pm for the opening of GRIDSCAPE. . .




GRIDSCAPE is a month-long exhibition featuring new work by artist’s Ben Medansky and Bradley Duncan. Objects explore two dichotomies crucial to Southern California’s manipulated terrain: grids created by architectural structures and flora-filled desert landscapes. Concepts examined include the monoclinic mineral azurite and the cuboid crystal pyrite, radial symmetric ceramic vessels adjacent to peg works, and vertically erected cacti. Accompanying the exhibition are mineral influenced works by artist Lauren Spencer King.
