A series of surreal illustrations based on rooms features a Dalí-esque dreamscape imagery filtered through Hiroyuki’s simple style. Explaining how he conceives the content, Hiroyuki said: “What’s in the room. What will happens in there… I wanted to see what kind of feeling you can get if you are in there with unusual items and interiors.”

Venice-based artist Peeta‘ work has an amazing art style that takes the digital familiar into the real world, like pixelated sculptures. He merges his passions for graffiti writing, sculpture, and design in his large-scale spray murals that look like swirling three dimensional objects that float just above a wall or canvas. The artworks take on the form of graffiti-like letterforms but aren’t necessarily meant to be read or deciphered. Instead the pieces focus more on the use of line, shadow, and color to build impressive voluminous shapes that explode in every direction.

Peeta created this latest mural for the HKWALLS festival. The piece occupies a giant facade on a busy Hong Kong intersection above the Golden Computer Arcade and draws its color for neighboring buildings and signs.

Opening Ceremony is doing a Tron Legacy line

Posted from The Citrus Report

We don’t really know about this one, because we are into both the new Tron Legacy movie (we think) and we like Opening Ceremony, but the combination might be too ironical for us. Opening Ceremony is doing a full Tron Legacy line, and we just think it might be a little too drinking on a Tuesday night, working at a boutique that opens at noon or later sort of thing. As much as we are that, we aren’t that, you know?

Why would these New Eras only be available in Europe?

Posted from The Citrus Report

Love the line that the editors of Highsnobiety wrote of these hats: “Again, these are available only in the European flagship stores. Which is absolutely ridiculous given the subject matter.” We agree, because we want these snapbacks, especially that Chicago Bulls one. Give us the Jordan/Pippen era, and we are suckers. Love the Nordiques hat down below.
