Referencing Shape & Color

Today, our constant search for palette inspiration led us to artist Laylah Ali. While her works often reference violent political and social scenes, she cuts the tension with brightly colored characters that have an almost comic book feel. Walking downtown yesterday, we could almost see her inspiration, which helps to make these images of violence so easy love.
