Artists Darya Golubina and Mila Matveeva started Kate & Bear in the winter of 2008 in New York City as an organization dedicated to bringing a piece of the pie to artists. We aim to build a lattice of support, opportunity and creativity for individuals working in any medium by engaging with and within a community through art shows and interactive events.
Think of us as an agency without all the agency.

Nicole Melanson is a Brooklyn based artist whose drawings, prints, and textiles are beautiful—in fact, I am wearing one right now. I knew Nicole as a photographer and videographer and all around artist, but as soon as I saw she had an online shop I had to buy something (and it’s totally affordable, comfortable and vibrant as pictured). I like seeing the parallels between her wearables and prints.
Azerbaijani artist Faig Ahmed draws from the rich tradition of Middle Eastern carpet weaving to spin surreal creations that seem to defy physical laws — and the staticness of cultural relics. Sometimes his carpets appear to melt, their patterns dissolving into a pool of swirling colors like an oil slick, and other times they become three-dimensional, rising up in sharp spikes that defy the two-dimensional form. These are not carpets to be walked upon. Since we introduced Ahmed on the blog last May, he has created a new body of work that will debut at Cuadro Gallery in Dubai on September 14. A unique space in Dubai’s financial center, Cuadro is a non-profit gallery where Ahmed recently completed an artist residency. Take a look at some photos from Ahmed’s studio and his new works on Hi-Fructose.

Photographer David Doubilet was on assignment for National Geographic photographing wildlife in Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence when he photographed this colorful and exotic-looking lion’s mane jellyfish in Bonne Bay. The beauty of this creature drifting in the crystal-clear waters underscores what there is to lose as years of overfishing, warming waters, and possible offshore drilling cause concern for the health of the gulf’s ecosystem.
