BITNB artist, Keren Richter, recently teamed up with Nick Cope, expert in design/build, to complete an installation mural at the Opening Ceremony store in Los Angeles. Keren, an illustrator/designer, says the pair worked from 7:00pm to 4:00am for a week straight to complete their project. The mural is comprised of a pattern of blocks which Keren states, represent “abstracted city-scapes, which grow and tumble playfully along two opposing fifty foot walls.”
Make sure you go check out the permanent installation at the Opening Ceremony boutique in LA!
Curated by our first BITNB artist Keren Richter and designer Nanse Kawashima -a group show opening this week. The exhibition features work exploring concepts of mystery, secret societies, gossip, dirty secrets, veiling, camouflage… anything secretive.
