Art for Interior Design Projects - Wescover.com is a great resource

There is a new great resource for interior designers, art lovers and architects - it’s called Wescover.com. The concept is simple and powerful. Artists and creators can show their work in context of unique spaces such as restaurants, offices and private homes, and people interested in art, sculptures and design can browse the site to get inspired or find new artists and artwork. Wescocer’s mission is to connect people, places and stories behind art and design objects in our everyday lives. Often you see a piece of art and are wondering “Who made it?”, “What is the story behind it?”, and “Where can I find more?” - that is where Wescover comes in. Please take a look at my artist profile on Wescover and start browsing and get inspired by so many different creators and spaces.

Sculpture at The Vault 555 restaurant in San Francisco

I am very excited that one of my sculptures, Helix, found a new home in the fine-dining restaurant The Vault in the financial district of San Francisco.

The restaurant offers a modern take on California Cuisine and American Classics, sourced from local farmers and artisan producers. Check it out when you are in the city.

The wall sculpture was inspired by the observation that life is formed by a series of choices, experiences, events and learnings. Each unique piece of reclaimed wood represents one of those steps, adding context and direction, and thereby creating a rich, unpredictable and interesting path.
