The Artist About To Take The World By Storm

The Artist About To Take The World By Storm

As a student and a lover of the arts, fewer things bother me more than seeing someones work everywhere and the general public having no idea who created it, though they are interacting with it on a regular basis.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Comme Des Garcons dropped their "PLAY" collection, though the brand has been on the cutting edge of fashion for years the "PLAY" collection featuring the heart above has become a staple in the fashion world. The collection was so popular that Comme Des Garcons even collaborated with Converse to put the heart on their shoes. What is crazy about this isn't the collection, but the man behind iconic heart.

Filip Pagowski was born in Poland and eventually moved to New York City to pursue a career in graphic design after attending the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. Along with Comme Des Garcons he has had other major clients such as The New York Times, Saks 5th Avenue and Diane Von Furstenberg just to name a few. It is insane that though most people have seen his work at one point in their life, they don't know his name (not to mention the fact that he doesn't even have a Wikipedia page and you can hardly find a photograph of the artist himself).

But it seems like Pagowski's time in the sun may finally be on it's way. Filip was commissioned to design the cover for Drake's latest single from his fourth coming album, "Views From The 6" dropping this April, "Summer Sixteen," in which he says that his swimming pool is bigger than Kanye's (not true, Kanye has 3 pools) but that's besides the point. Once the single dropped people began to draw connections of the similarities of the cover art to that of things like the Comme Des Garcons collection and Filip began creating some much deserved buzz.

A few days after the release of the single, we got something else. Drake loves dropping hints across the 6 aka his hometown of Toronto about when the album is going to be released and it looks like Filip had something to do with the latest one. Over night in Toronto appeared a billboard saying only "VIEWS" and it has Pagowski written all over it. This doesn't come as a huge surprise as Drake has been a fan of Filip and the "PLAY" collection for quite some time now but the publicity he's given him by shouting him out for the cover art on Instagram has certainly helped Filip become more of a household name in the art world.

The official cover art for "Views From The Six" is yet to be released but we can only hope that the pattern will continue and it will be done by Pagowski.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
