For those who were wondering our whereabouts last week, @RainySunDesign had a very busy and exciting time last 2 weeks. As we mentioned in our last post, I was visiting some family in Bogotá Colombia and @JorgeRolito was working on some new projects with our friends from ShoreLife Florida.
Sports, Art & more projects to come!
Jorge spent some time working and getting his hands dirty. Ideas and lots of sanding took place last weekend with the @ShoreLifeFl folks. Boards seem to be one of our next projects and the horizon looks promising. Living in South Florida, surf boards, skate and long boards are really popular and fun. Besides if you do not practice any of these sports, art on boards look pretty awesome and would be a great addition to your wall! We’re very excited to share this with you since this is a project that has really caught our attention and I am looking forward to create some awesome art pieces as well as maybe incorporate basic furniture, etc. Many ideas are flowing on this end and eager to make them come true. Here are some insider picks.
Bogotá… Colors, flavors and Street Art!
So while Jorge was measuring, cutting and sanding, I was enjoying myself in Bogotá, Colombia, the city where everything started! There is not much to say except, YOU GOT TO VISIT. I enjoyed the food, the streets, the colors, the people and I took as much photos as I could. Being there for a few days remind me of our early years dipping into the design scene. Bogotá is a big city, and keeping in mind the differences, it has a lot in common with big cities like New York or London.
Many colors and people on the streets. You have to keep up with the flow, which seems to be a fast pace rhythm, messy but with a particular structure. The food is colorful and tourists walk around admiring details and things that for the natives are pretty regular, like the exotic fruits, the narrow streets, the handcraft goodies etc…
Bogotá is growing faster than it seems and for someone that spent most of her life there, I am pretty amazed with all the progress that its going on. Progress has open a big space for art and freedom of expresion. Art is everywhere, on the street, on the performances that take place in any downtown corner, on the colors of the walls in La Candelaria… Colors, flavor and diversity. Words and photos are never enough… you ought to come and visit. Hope you enjoy this post as much as I did while writing it!
