Jun Aoki architecture


I try to redefine 'structure versus finish'.
I like using ordinary things, very common materials
and give them a new aspect. the sheer quality of the
material and their building structure,
some kind of repetition, pattern, ...
all that create a sense of the ornamental
that is unstable and visually less distinct.

Twit the Wall

I'm a twitter addict. And as any real addict would do at this point - present to you yours humble twitter account. Follow at your own risk.

Anyway, this is why this graffiti made me smile. It's by a UK artist, Questionmarc, whose real name shall remain confidential...


The sad news is, as reported by a visitor of the artist's website, the wall has now been vandalized. The current wall could be seen here.
