Beauty from a Building




I am so amazed at the talented and intriguing artist, Nuria Mora. Take a quick glance at her work and you will fall in love with it's bold and simplistic beauty. 


She takes an urban space and recreates the entire ambiance and atmosphere by painting over existing buildings and doors. When I say I love the look of modern-vintage, this is an explicit example of just that, in terms of a public wall of art. It's the grainy, worn, rustic display of brick and wood, covered by simplistic, bold shapes that build such a contrast to the look and feel of modern-vintage in my mind. 


I designed and painted a similar style while in college and this just brought all of those wonderful aesthetics back to mind. And the fact that it's displayed out in open space for all to enjoy makes it so much grander!
