We came across a few photos of an impressive giant wooden sculpture this morning. After some research we discovered that the work belongs to Manolo Garcia, a Spanish carpenter who specializes in not only interior design, but float building and what we've managed to translate as "bonfires"...

Pastel recently completed this wall in Girona, Spain for the Milestone Project. Located in Font de la Polvora a gitane neighborhood where they use the public space as a extension of their homes. The site identity is an important element because it is a community living of habits and traditions. In front of the wall is a very thin river where some wild plants gow and the animals drink water.

On Friday, June 26, the CAC Málaga Museum in Málaga, Spain will be opening Your Eyes Here, an exhibition from Los Angeles-based artist Shepard Fairey. As they note, "Your Eyes Here is not just a historical overview of Fairey’s works, but is a dynamic up-to-the-moment showcase of his artistic evolution influenced by music, politics – peace and war – and environmental issues." On the occasion, we chatted with Shepard about putting the show together, the international spread of Obey Giant, and looking forward and back.

Architecture studio A2arquitectos has taken everyobody's favorite toy and/or psychedelic experience and inspired a real-life children's play area at Hotel Castell De Hams in Porto Cristo, Spain. Hexagonal reflective tunnels 9 meters long by 2 meters high reflect external views and bring natural light to the children playing in them. The rest of the space looks pretty neat too...

Spanish artist Antonio Santin's collection paintings of human bodies (we assume) hidden under ornate tapestries are rather haunting. His process involves projecting a photograph onto the wall and manipulating the size and proportion as he paints. He is currently on exhibit at Marc Straus Gallery in NYC.
