Walrus TV Artist Feat: SWOON

In this episode of Walrus TV by Upper Playground, innovative street artist SWOON shows us her paper wheat paste cutouts that have been commonly seen throughout the urban playgrounds. Her art draws inspiration from actual people she interacts with on a daily basis. Unlike graffiti art, her work displays a beautiful type of deteriorating state before nature vanishes it from the walls. Just another great example of a talented artist taking it from the streets to the gallery showroom. Check it out and tell us what you think. Comment is open.

Estevan Oriol Must Haves!

Kicking off the year in true west coast fashion is Estevan Oriol’s T-shirt collection. As a photographer, Estevan’s keen eye maintains the raw appeal of the real world that surrounds us. This rawness is clearly depicted within his photography of beautiful Latina women that we see consistently through the seasons. It is this truthfulness to his artwork that makes a real life connection with the everyday person on the street.
