HAHA MAG PICK OF THE DAY:
We love these minimalist CITY TRANSIT LINE POSTERS designed by the graphics team of Cayla & John. It’s a great way to show some love for your city and still maintain your cool art decor. They have a great selection of international cities and Line T-shirts as well over at their Etsy Shop.
Paris-based photographer Alban Grosdidier’s newest photo series, Drowning, likens the suffocating feeling of being submersed under water to living in a big city.
Who amongst us hasn’t felt that way on time or another - trapped, over whelmed and left gasping for air.
Huge installations of the photographs first appeared outside along the borders of the river Seine in January 2012.

STREET ART WITHOUT BORDERS
We love this dapper, cigar-smoking, besuited chimpanzee wearing Nintendo controller glasses. Look at how awesome he is! This wheatpaste piece was created by artist Vinicius Quesada and put up on the streets of Paris, France as part of the Street Art Without Borders project.

It’s no secret around here that I’m a huge foodie…so Paris-based, French Illustrator, Lucile Prache’s work is right up my alley. I actually just purchased a few of her water color recipies for my kitchen.
You can pick up some of your own from her quaint little Etsy shop, Lucile’s Kitchen.
COMMUTE LIKE A ROCK STAR …
when your train looks like the inside of the Palace at Versaille. Sometimes it seems like only the French are chic enough. Especially when they turn their daily commute to work into a culture filled ride. Line C of the Regional Express Network (RER) in Paris, France now has a ceiling to match the Chateau de Versailles.
It’s stories like this that remind me why I love those guys over at hyperallergic.
Is Damien Hirst Lazy?
A spotted judgment pops up on the streets of Paris. And someone goes in stoned (we think) to the Hirst show in LA. READ MORE
