Wall Candy.

I've started to invest in new pieces of art since design has become such a big part of my life. The industry has done so much for me so it's only right to give back and support your local artists. Here's a few from my collection...This is a great piece by Ian Ross of San Francisco. It means a lot to me as it was from a live art show in SF and was painted on my birthday while I was in attendance. One of my best friends picked it up for me to my surprise and was one of the kindest gestures I've ever received. Much love Jamal. Ur next.

I saw this piece at my friend Tocayo's art show down in San Diego. The artist is EXIST 1981. Loved the Sound Of Music print collage with his other work.
This is my most recent pickup that I'm incredibley stoked on. This is a signed Shepard Fairey print entitled "The Presidential Seal." For all you who don't know Fairey was the artist behind the Obama "HOPE" art and is soon to be apart of the biggest lawsuit the art world has ever seen. No doubt one of the most iconic street artists of our time. I picked this beast up at a great charity art auction/xmas party a coworker of mine put on to support a friend of his that has ALS. It makes me happy to know that the proceeds of the event went to that kind of support.
