Miami Art Week Begins

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on December 2, 2014 by lisadiakova

I kicked off Miami Art Week by visiting Peter Kappa’s Open Studio, which gave me a chance to see his newest work firsthand. I’m always excited to see Kappa’s new creations. He’s a very real artist–honest, intelligent–and it shows in his work. You can check him out at Here are some pictures.

The Precious Rejects Show Launches in 3 Weeks!

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , on September 23, 2011 by lisadiakova

There are 3 weeks left until my art exhibit, The Precious Rejects Show, launches in New York!!!

Of course, like anything worth going to, the action behind-the-scenes is a thunderstorm of ideas, crazy to-do lists, and a lot of what ifs. The cushy nest in my head, otherwise known as “my happy place” is getting smaller and harder to find.

Nonetheless, I’m psyched!! Sure, I’m running on coffee and passion, but that’s what it’s all about. Any work of love demands more than your time. It takes your soul… I say this in my witchiest voice, of course. Wa. ha. ha. ha. ha!!!!!!!

Alright, so maybe I could use a day at the spa, but still, I am really enjoying every bit of the madness. My team is ridiculous!! They are talented, beautiful people who really understand that this show is about reaching creatures from all walks of life. I am a firm believer that works of art should be shared.

My Facebook “LIKE” page will be up soon so keep an eye open and please spread our beautiful disease throughout all corners of the world. Tell your friends. Tell your grandma. Tell your barista.

The Precious Rejects Show comes to New York on October 13th!  :::INSERT DRUMS HERE:::

Dearest ART SHOW!

I wish with all my heart that I could communicate with birds. The first thing I’d ask them is how to build a nest. Birds pick among the many scraps of twigs and debris and they build a home for their darlings. Right now my brain is loaded with scraps and debris and while I know that there is a form in there somewhere, I have yet to bring it to completion.

Some of you know that I am working towards my first solo art show. It was originally planned for July, but to bring you the best possible show I have changed it to October. Official announcements will come next week!!! For now, I can tell you that it will be in the heart of the Chelsea Arts District in New York City.

I can honestly say, without ego, that I am working towards a beautiful and spectacular show. I am proud of my work. I am incredibly proud of my extraordinary team who has come together to make this possible. I can’t wait to introduce them to you.

This collection is the most honest thing I’ve ever made. I’ve put my all into it, so if you don’t love me at least a bit more after coming to see it, we should probably stop being friends. I think it would be best. 🙂 In all honesty, it has taken a lot out of me and I’m terribly excited to share it with everyone!!

My mind is full of great ideas, and now comes the hard part. Editing. How do I take all the wonderful concepts, requirements, limitations, budgets, and build a beautiful nest for my darlings?

Anyone speak Bird?
