Someone recently sent us the above video and the first time we watched it, we were completely mesmerized with it from beginning to end – especially considering the entire thing is computer generated! Yep, you read correctly. This phenomenal footage is actually an animated 3D video rendering. Entitled The Third & The Seventh, this short film was created by artist Alex Roman (aka Jorge Seva) and offers up a surreal view of art and architecture, including the Mt. Fuji house above designed by architect Satoshi Okada. We can hardly believe the level of detail and the sense of depth and space in Mr. Roman's creation and we're eager to share it with those who may not have seen it yet. To see more of his work click here and to read a fascinating interview with the artist click here. We've also included a video below that shows the process and the making of this incredible film. Enjoy! (we suggest you watch both videos in full screen).

In addition to the new site, LEPERE has joined forces with Raandesk Gallery of Art for a new exhibition entitled Art & Living: Emerging Interiors. Curated by interior designer and Cheeky Living Founder Karen Chien, the show will pair the work of emerging international artists with sleek, modern, European furnishings.
"An arresting work of art plays a central role in defining the mood and tenor of an interior," comments Karen Chien of Cheeky Living. "The show illustrates how to incorporate fine art alongside sophisticated, contemporary design."
Raandesk Gallery of Art, owner Jessica L. Porter selected seven artists that would complement the LEPERE aesthetic including: Juan Astica (Buenos Aires), Andrew Maglathlin, (Massachusetts), Anne Marchand (Washington D.C.), Teresa Pereda (Buenos Aires), Matej Sitar (Slovenia), Laura Vinas (Buenos Aires) and Roy Wiemann (New York City).
Art & Living: Emerging Interiors will be on view from May 13th through July 5th at LEPERE showroom, located at 20 West 22nd Street, Suite 1105, New York, NY with an opening reception this Thursday, May 13th from 7 - 9 PM. Hope you'll meet us there-should be a nice evening! (see below images for a sneak peak of the art you can expect to see at the show).
