From our home base in San Diego, we enjoy an amazing relationship with Tijuana’s creative and hospitality communities. For several years we’ve collaborated with street artists, architects, hoteliers, chefs and various other craftsmen and artisans. Naturally, inspiration has followed, in the form of The Gold Leaf Project, a not-for-profit public art initiative. Its mission is to advance artistic expression and appreciation, while strengthening connections between two great cities and cultures.
The project’s creative premise is simple: install vintage gold leaf frames in public space and populate them with modern street art. This created a juxtaposition of classic, reclaimed art frames with the urban edginess and social messaging of street culture. L.W.P. will commission artists and muralists’ participation, and consult with local experts to scout locations. Launch Date: Early 2015
