I spent the other day exploring and painting in an abandoned mansion near Barcelona. In its heyday the estate was a decadent beach front palace. Today it has been left to complete ruins and more than a few of us have come through to leave our mark. While adding to the decay I decided to paint on a mirrored closet with a phrase to reflect on. Especially for those who once lived here. Keep It Simple Stupid

In case you didn’t know I’ve got InstaGram. You can check out square photos of my things on walls, found fonts and signs, updates from my studio, and some occasional letter-related hilarity. Instagram: @MaxRipo.
I recently designed and handpainted this logo on a friend’s shop in Barcelona, Grey Street. A nice change from just painting in the studio and walls.
These beautiful floor tiles paving the streets of Barcelona are called Panot de Flor (Flower Tile). I found a little history about them, in Spanish, HERE.
While the blog here gets a lot of attention and constant updates its sibling, the website, often feels left out. We know that one isn’t better than the other so we just gave the website a big old update in almost all sections. Don’t let the website feel left and go see how it’s doing today.
