Inspired by street art #4

New month, new graffiti inspired by street art piece. This time one with my favorite colors: black, white and grey. This beautiful piece of artwork is situated near Rotterdam Central Station and just a 5 minute walk from my home. Like the previous ‘Inspired by’ post, this urban graffiti piece is also from a Brazilian street artist – they’ve got some great skills! Speto, a 40 years old graffiti pioneer, like to portray things in a simple and playful way – mostly in black and white. This – so far – untitled mural is also part of the Brazilian Urban Art festival in Rotterdam, 2009.

What I most like about Speto’s street art painting, are the modern abstract lines with an almost ‘Picasso’ drawn female figure. The dark strokes are a huge contrast with the white. The brown brick wall is part of the whole mural. Below the graffiti piece you’ll find some hip-hop inspired black and white photographs, which really fits the area because of the “Hip Hop House” near it. A playful picture perfect! All street art colors create a minimal and urban color scheme.

While searching for the right selection of interior accessories and furniture I immediately thought of the Cartoon Table by Seletti, the geometrical shaped Paper Vase by Pepe Heykoop and the playful porcelain ‘My Robot’ by Seletti. Seletti is known for his different look on interior design and ‘playful’ is the first thing that comes to mind.

Enjoy the minimal color palette and urban playful inspired by street art mood board selection!

Fashion brand Zara suits the urban selection with their different use of textiles and black and white contrast in clothing. They also uses abstract out of proportions textile shapes, which match the shapes of this street art piece.
