The Year of the Sheep: New Years Art & Graffiti

The Chinese New Year begins on February 19, 2015 and it is the Year of the Sheep.  The Year of the Sheep is considered an auspicious year that brings luck and good things.  The year of 2015 is also known as Wooden Sheep. Because Wood (tree) is connected to the color of Green. Therefore, 2015 is the Year of Green Wooden Sheep WoodSheepFemale woodSheep.  The Sheep is also the symbol of the arts.  So being that this is ArtTuesday for us here at Gia On The Move we thought we’d share some interesting street art/graffiti finds.  Hands down our personal favorite genre in the art world, we found some pretty provocative stuff.  Check these out.

Culture Marches On

 Of all the things I could possibly write about 2014…that it’s been Gia On The Move’s best year yet…that we’ve been so fortunate to have experienced so much gorgeous, avant-garde, unique, delicious artistry in live performance, art, music, movies, food, fashion and more…what an awesome adventure it’s been…that we love all of the great friends we’ve made along the way, and how incredibly lucky to often accidentally have stumbled across gems that no one else was noticing…  What we’re most happy to say is ‘Thank you’.  Thank you for letting us entertain, inform, introduce and offer a little bit of our passions to YOU.   What a ride!  Ready for more?   ~Gia

Happy New Year!!!

Kito Flex Dopeness: #WalkThisWay

Let me introduce you to the budding premium fashion accessory line of Mr. Kito Flex

Kito Flex

Growing up in Houston, TX, 26 year-old Kito Flex always had big dreams of being successful and always had a love for fashion, especially unique accessories that assisted in making his outfits stand out from the crowd. Kito had the artistic idea to create a men’s accessory line (must be the dog…lol…kidding) that would reflect his unique style while staying true to his Houston roots. In early 2013, the Kito Flex Collection was born.

Gia On The Move: “This dude is “killin’ it”! And we love the inspirational message on the back of his labels.  Check out what he recently wrote to his Instagram followers:

Kito FlexIMG_9758-2.“You guys probably never noticed this but, I do have an inspirational message on the back of all my products! Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. #HappySunday Be blessed “

Bringing awareness of Houston culture to the forefront and cultivating design filled with inspirational art and creativity the line currently includes four premium sock patterns:

  • Baby Bottles”,
  • the vicious red “Bomb” socks,
  • the swangin’ “SLAB” socks (Slow, Loud, and Bangin aka a fully customized car)
  • and the most popular socks shrouded in “Lean Cups” filled with purple drank, inspired by the music of DJ Screw, UGK, Slim Thug and other Houston legends.

I’ve taken ordinary accessories and just added my creative twist to it and hope everyone else enjoys the art. I believe, no matter race or gender, my brand has something to offer to all individuals.”           – Kito Flex

The popularity of the Kito Flex Collection is spreading like wild fire and currently you can spot Houstonians all over rocking these socks.  We love the line at Gia On The Move because it’s just plain fun and sexy.  Plus we’re huge advocates of edgy entrepreneurs on the pulse! …and Gia will be rockin’ her own pair(s) very shortly. :)
