[ phil james ]

i first came across phil james street art at the under bridge of boundary st in darlinghurst. i regret never taking a photo and sadly it has been destroyed.
i came across this piece a few months ago in perry lane 
paddington, i love the fact that his pieces are framed. phil james, who ever you are, keep up your good work!

not sure who this is by, but i think its awesome! it was next to
phil james’s piece in perry lane.

i  was fortunate enough to have spent a couple of weeks in madrid for work.
madrid is a charming city with great food, beautiful architecture and home to some of the

 finest art museums in the world. 
i visited museo reina sofia  which was visually mind blowing!
 have been meaning to post some pictures up from the trip but have been a bit lazy. tonight, i decided to challenge myself and see if i could connect some pictures i took in madrid with the recent fall winter 2011 ready to wear collection…
