Prada in Marfa, Texas

Street Art // Friday, May 06, 2011
  In 2005, artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset constructed a fake Prada Store in the remote countryside of Marfa, Texas.  Stocked with shoes and bags they threw an opening party with the intention of creating a surreal experience for the attendees. The adobe structure was meant to be a hyper-realistic sculpture of a luxury store.  Three days after the project was completed people tagged the building, and broke in stealing handbags and shoes.

Helipad Tennis Court in Dubai

Street Art // Friday, May 06, 2011
  When we first stumbled on this photo we assumed it was a cgi scene from a recently released futuristic movie.  After some research and realizing that some of the most ridiculous architectural endeavors ever are currently in development in Dubai, we were proven wrong. The helipad at the top of the hotel Burj Al Arabl was turned into the world’s highest tennis court for a friendly match with Andre Agassi and Roger Federer.  Rooms in the hotel start at a low $2000 or you can splurge in getting a suite for a low $28000 per night!  

New work by Ekta & Ollio

Street Art // Friday, May 06, 2011
      Sweden based Ekta and Ollio has been busy beautifying the streets of Gothenburg recently.  The duo collaborating together makes for a winning combination in our opinion.  Aside from painting in the streets Ekta is also a very talented fine artist and illustrator.
