We were lucky enough to collaborate with ELLE, a totally rad artist for our photoshoot for our new zero waste outdoor airbag furniture. ELLE's work is both beautiful and provocative, using collaged images to tell powerful, poetic stories.
This photoshoot was on her recently completed mural for Little City Farm LA - a collaborative organic farm in the heart of Los Angeles. The mural is a homage to LA and the diverse, rich history of the flora, fauna and people. The project was recently featured as part of the LA Design Festival. Insider tip: part of the sun face is the honorable RBG as a young woman. We can feel the power standing in front of this art.
Elle began her career tagging the streets of New York, boldly making space for women in the male-dominated world of graffiti and street art. She is a rebel and a renegade. She is a powerful and righteous woman, with a passion for the environment that shows in all of her work.
We love you ELLE.
For the Little City Farm LA mural, ELLE used upcycled, mis-tinted paint donated by Dunne Edwards. You'd be amazed how much paint gets returned to the store and cannot be resold (we used to upcycle paint for our line of hand-painted beer filter cloth bags! Should we bring that back?!). We helped source and upcycle as much paint as possible for the base coats and for the court surface.
