The Rad Art of Alex Menocal

Photo by Marc Gerke.

Simplicity in art f* rules, and when the execution is clear as water, it rules too. Renoir once said "The purpose of painting is to decorate the walls". Simple. Sounds good enough to us, so we want this to spread. Decorate your walls!

You might want to consider Alex Menocal to do the job. He creates this powerful and triangulated art, with paint, tape, watercolour, whatever he can reach for. We got excited by the potential of this, in interior design, as he shows it in some of the indoors pictures. It works great! Colour easily comes to you and it adds a little bit of radness in life, with some deliciously destabilizing diagonals. See for yourself what's this all about, after the jump.
