After going through the pieces of Resurrection Furniture, we proceeded to the very personal art gallery of Robert Alejandro of The Sketching Backpacker and The Sartorialist Sketches, both of which were previously featured here in df.
RAW, short for RO-bert, is packed with the artist’s works, from framed The Sartorialist Sketches original watercolor drawings and various illustrated postcards, to hanging mobiles and whimsical metal sculptures. Because there’s not enough room for all the artworks, the rest were displayed along the hallway outside the room.
The room felt very personal, like we were breaking into someone’s private space. I appreciate the spontaneous “organized clutter” arrangement of the artworks which gave the space so much personality. For a second, it made me appreciate the mess of blueprints, swatches, and stacks of books and magazines on my desk, hehe.
We love RAW’s wall which was covered with whitewashed music sheets in place of a wallpaper. And of course, we love the card catalog! Our visit to this place made me realize that it should be an essential piece in a designer’s office. Talk about great storage solution.
Visit RAW’s facebook page here for more info and pictures of the artworks.
Next up is Hausbesetzer Tea Laboratory.
