Saner a street artist form Mexico along with Remed a French street artist have adorned the textured grey walls of the Southbank centre here in London. The work has been commissioned by Wahaca who have converted 8 shipping containers into a temporary mexican restaurant and tequila bar with a view of the Thames. The popping colours and bold shapes are a welcome break from grey walls and dull skies. The food looks good too.

These are not computer designed but the amazing hand drawn artwork of American Eugene Andolsek. The intensely colourful and intricate works were created by Andolsek starting in the 1950's as a calming pastime. Using a black pen, graph paper, a compass and coloured markers he created piece after piece without even considering them as art. It wasn't until the end of his life that a care worker found his trove of incredible work and brought it to wider attention. Just before his death in 2008 Eugene Andolsek's work was part of an exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum. Over a 60 year period he produced around 2000 works which had never been on display, just hidden away in cupboards and old trunks. He was a truly secret artist.

We took some vintage oars and gave them A Rum Fellow makeover. We mixed some of our favourite elements of wood, copper, bright colours and geometrics. Some maritime style perfect for any wall.

We HEART Cuzco, it is such a beautiful place. Here the ancient, traditional and contemporary streams of Peruvian culture collide together making it a great city to go exploring, as there are plenty of surprises.
One of our favourites was Macondo. Taking its name from the pages of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this newly refurbished shop/gallery/restaurant is full of clever design and great taste, on the walls as well as the menu. The wood decked front space houses ceramics (a selection of Jonathan Adler which is all made in Peru), artwork, inspiring books and homewares such as contemporary Peruvian church style cushions.
Large mirrored doors entice you in to discover the restaurant at the back. The tables are glass topped over traditional board game artwork for entertainment whilst you recline yourself against the wall made entirely of cushioned cubes.
The gallery seeps into the restaurant with two large Richard Peralta paintings. Peralta is a new discovery for us and we are now obsessing over him. We love his combination of fine art painting style and political subject matter. A Cusco native, Peralta has worked on a series of pieces inspired by the actions of the Shining Path extremist Maoist group in Peru. In the peak of their activities a decade ago Shining Path activists kidnapped children from villages, turning them into child soldiers to boost their forces fighting against the state.
Macondo is a little gem in Cusco, a rare treat for the eyes and stomach both.
