After an awesome day of surfing at San Onofre Beach, a legendary surf spot in Southern California, we went out for beers and grub at the Cellar, a bar in neighboring San Clemente where we were pleasantly surprised to see this stencil street art by the Los Angeles-based street artist Bandit in the bar’s restroom. The town of San Clemente itself is a beautiful beach town that is virtually devoid of graffiti and street art.
We recently visited the South Beach, Miami studios of artist-designer Laz Ojalde and took pictures of the space and his work, which includes these lights and objet. Ojalde runs a separate design studio called LMNOQ and has developed an aesthetic around sustainable, minimalist furniture design and art pieces. Super dope stuff.
The international symbols for man and woman often used on signage for restrooms at airports, museums, restaurants and public places, etc., throughout the world are sometimes reinterpreted by designers. We noticed a lot of variations on the symbols at various places in Amsterdam on our recent visit there. Pictured here are the even more minimalist and pared down and arm-less versions of these symbols used in signage at Ij Kantine, a massive, beautifully designed restaurant and bar in Amsterdam’s northside across the Ij River. We’ll post images of the restaurant in a separate post soon.
This fresh new artwork by artists Diana Garcia and Gabriel Specter at the Woodward Gallery’s Project Space (in front of the Ghost space) on Eldridge Street on New York’s Lower East Side. The work is on view through February 14, 2014. The wall is yet another space dedicated to curated street art, a trend that will keep growing and we love to see.
