I saw Jorge Manilla's work for the first time in 2013, at Joya Barcelona where he had a solo exhibition titled "Contemporary Savagery". It was about violence, troubled objects, and the human soul. I was intrigued; It seemed like he was materializing feelings through his jewelry, the exhibition was truly an experience. So I have closely followed his work over the past several years and I was so happy to have the chance to meet him in Athens, Greece and chat about so much more than jewelry. He opened up about his life's challenges, his work and philosophy of life in this inspiring interview.

This May marks what would have been the 122th birthday of Martha Graham (May 11, 1894 – April 1, 1991). She spent her life challenging what dance is and what a dancer can do. Quoting wikipedia:..." her influence has been compared with the influence of Picasso on modern visual arts, the influence of Stravinsky on music and the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright on architecture."
