Sam Spencer’s “Bloom” 2007 (Photo from the London Evening Standard)
I love, love, love street art. And this photo of a street installation of Sam Spencer’s “Bloom” (that features yellow umbrellas “blooming” from an Oak tree) is one that I saw years ago and still can’t get out of my head. It’s pretty, it’s whimsical, it’s inspiring and it never fails to put a smile on my face! So, to welcome in June and the rainy season that has already hit our shores, I’m posting this pic to hopefully brighten up the coming gray days 🙂
Happy weekend, everyone!
PS- If I’m not mistaken, this installation was commissioned by the premium champagne brand Veuve Clicquot (hence the yellow color of the umbrellas). I wish more local brands would encourage creativity and commission interesting, intelligent pieces like this that everyday people can enjoy. Can you imagine, more street art instead of nonsensical billboards? 😉
