But First...Cafecito

♫ Natalia y la Forquetina- Casa ♫ 

When it comes to coffee shops you guys already know I'm such a fan!
I definitely took advantage of this quirky cute cafe in downtown Pomona this past Saturday. I was around the area and yelped cafes before remembering that I had already saved this place on my Instagram tab a while back.  
Anyways I don't even know where to begin to describe the cuteness overload of this cafe called: Mi Cafecito Coffee. I loved it right away from the decor to the ceramic coffee mugs! I also loved the cute decorations, the Mexican pastries, and drinks like the: horchata latte and the Mexicano Mocha. They don't have many food options but we ended up trying the chicken pesto panini which was surprisingly good and a guava and cheese pastry which also did not disappoint. I loved the service and the overall presentation, so worth checking out! 

If you guys are in this area I highly suggest checking out Mi Cafecito, it's still fairly new and not so overrated.

After Jason Rhoades' exhibition we spent the time strolling around and exploring a certain part of downtown LA I had never really ventured out to. It's funny because I never really knew about this other part of the arts district which I ended up loving! It reminded a bit of a mix between Capitol Hill in Seattle and Brooklyn (NY) ....and yes I guess you can say a little bit too "hipster" as well haha. I love how this district is very industrial/urban and filled with random art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and music venues all within walking distance which is a plus! It's crazy to see this city grow so quickly since back in the day downtown LA was never really "happening", but I'm so glad to see how much this city has progressed!

Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Jason Rhoades Art Exhibition

♫ De La Soul (Feat. Little Dragon)- Drawn ♫ 

Hey Guys!

Here are the set of pictures from this past Sunday's art exhibit in LA's Hauser & Wirth gallery. All I can say is WoW! I was speechless when I finally got to experience Jason Rhoades' art installation from 1994-2006. This was my first time checking out his work and all I can say is that I'm definitely a fan now. 

The first exhibit upon walking in the gallery was called "Tijuanatanjierchandelier" (2006), the room was decked out in strings attached to bright neon words, lanterns, chandeliers, mattresses laid out, blankets, and other random paraphernalia on the floor and hanging from the ceiling; it was just chaos turned into art and I of course loved it! The installation included 176 neon sign words both in Spanish and English, geez I can't imagine how long this must've taken to install... but I love how it all came together, it was so dreamy and fun! 
All the cultural random objects represented the homogeneity of modernization inspired by Tijuana, Mexico and Tangier, Morocco.  

There is definitely a sense of rebellion, humor, and somewhat raunchy-ness in his work but hey that's what makes it enjoyable to watch!

The next exhibit room was called:

"My Madinah. In pursuit of my ermitage..." (2004):

I loved this other installation, it was inspired by his travels in the Middle East. The room was also filled with neon signs and the floor was covered in a carpet of towels, which represented a place of religious seclusion based on the term: "My Madinah" which is part mosque and part temple. 

His work was just amazing and out of this world! Loved it. 

If you guys want to check out his work check it out at Hauser & Wirth, it's a MUST-see!
