Love Me Anyways

Love is a recurring theme of a lot of street art. And often it’sin its simplest, plainest, most straightforward expressions that resonates with viewers. JGoldcrown’s widely Instagrammed “Lovewall” comes to mind, as does Casey Kulig’s globally-spread “Love Me” meme. “Love Me Anyways” is painted on sidewalks and walls in a handwritten-style of lettering that exposes some personality in the artist. The example pictured above was found in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles. 

Plain Minimalist All-White Leather Sneakers … Venice, Los Angeles

We recently popped into the Rag & Bone store on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, in Los Angeles, to try on this paired of white leather sneakers. These shoes are as plain and minimalist as can be. We love ’em.

What Iconic Tech Entrepreneur is the Inspiration for the Latest Wave of Street Art Hitting NYC?

Well it’s late Apple Computer co-founder and visionary Steve Jobs, of course. As the father of the much-loved iPod, iPhone, and iPad, Job’s legacy is a kind of ubiquitous presence in our daily lives whether or not we actually own and use an Apple device. iPhones are everywhere. Jobs’ iconic image is the basis of a rash of new street art popping up in downtown New York and Brooklyn this past week by the NYC-based artist who goes by the moniker UnCasso (a.k.a., UnCuttArt). The artworks are illustrated renderings of the photo by acclaimed Scottish photographer Albert Watson, and printed on heart-shaped paper in various colors and wheat-pasted to walls. Steve Jobs has been the inspiration and subject of street art previously, and his image used with other global icons.
