After poking around the book stacks of The Last Bookstore last weekend, I discovered the artists’s shops/studios on the mezzanine level. So cool!
This is Andrea Bogdan at work, transforming a frame into a work of art in itself. She told me she wasn’t sure what she was going to do with it until a visitor to the studio suggested that she use it to frame a mirror.
I very much enjoyed chatting with her. It made me want to visit the arts district during the monthly Downtown Artwalk which is held the second Thursday of every month. Click here for info on visiting.
Note the big windows. They over look a bustling downtown Los Angeles Street… I think Spring Street. Wow, does this excite anyone else’s artist fantasies?
I just… I really like this. So happy and free.
Here’s what the tag for the painting above says, in case you can’t make it out: “‘The Leap’ Here’s a person who is taking a chance long over due. His friend on the right says, ‘I knew you could do it!’ His friend on the left says, ‘Whaaa!?'”
Ooh! Some of those cool images on a dresser!
Coffee and conversation would have to be inspired by this table. I cannot say how much I love this. (Or how many tables I already have in my house.)
Andrea does mobiles too. This was taken from her window.
Next post will be more art I encountered downtown, both inside the Spring Arts Tower and on the street.
