Boa Mistura: Order is Intangible

The Spanish art collective Boa Mistura (previously here) composed of five self-proclaimed ‘graffiti rockers’ created this cool anamorphic typography installation for the interior design fair Interiorissimo Decoracción 2011. Inspired by the poem “Order is” by Louis I. Khan, the words “El Orden es Intangible” (Order is intangible) were painted on an abstract furniture composition that […]

Boa Mistura: Beauty and Pride in a Favela

Click to enlarge I love everything about this amazing project by the appropriately named Spanish art collective Boa Mistura (good mix): the typography, the color, the participative nature, and most of all the huge heart behind it. Made up of artists Arkoh, Derko, Pahg, Purone, and Rdick who have developed their work in different fields, […]

BoaMistura: Pensar/Sentir (Think/Feel)

A recent project at the University of Isthmus in Panama City by one of my favorite Spanish art collectives, Boa Mistura (previously), engaged the architecture and industrial design students.

OK Go: The Writing’s on the Wall

It may even top all the others, if that’s possible. With one tricky optical illusion after another, the clip includes the anamorphic effects and styles of […]

LeChurro, the small Upper East Side locale, seats approximately ten people in its nicely designed space. Boa Mistura (previously here and here) the Spanish street art collective, were commissioned to […]

Eltono: This Way in Warsaw

The kids involved in the project are […]

Ole Martin Lund Bø: Anamorphic Type

Click to enlarge Finnish artist Ole Martin Lund Bø‘s wooden installation Deceptive Outward Appearance uses the technique of anamorphosis as we’ve seen also here and here. Even having seen other works utilizing the similar effect, I’m still always impressed at the ability to create these, as well as interested in the individual components that make […]
