Colette in Paris is holding Blair Chivers’s exhibition “Life is Great” till April 30th. He is a Canadian artist whose work explores power; particularly the power of the mind and emotion.


For Chivers, engaging with art can stimulate ideas, broaden perspectives, and increase our sense of possibility. It can be a powerful tool for observing and understanding the creative interplay of thought and feeling. The words that Chivers uses are designed to inspire contemplation. “Believe”. “Envision and Prepare”. “Live Out of Your Imagination Not Your History”. “Wow!”. On the surface, each word, sentence, and quote seems uplifting, but that’s not strictly true. Words can mean the opposite of what they seem.

In his colette show, Blair Chivers presents a new range of work: art editions curated by Each x Other, t-shirts from his Each x Other fashion collaboration, Gooey iPhone cases, and a special Each x Other, a collaborated brand of art and fashion in Paris which acts as a magnetic point, drawing artists from the four corners of the world into an ever-growing creative community.
