Hey everyone, tonight I want to share with you some great street art I only recently discovered. The guy’s name is Beau Stanton, a painter from Brooklyn, NY. He caught my eye because, even though you all know I’m a huge fan of street art, his is inspiringly bizarre, and I mean that in the best way possible.
Get this – his works are mostly murals of vintage things combined with psychedelic, hypnotizing patterns. He uses a few simple colors at a time, and then lets thick lines define a number of things, almost unapologetically. This mix of classical oil painting and intricate patterns just leave fans like myself awestruck all the time. Take a look at some of my favs:

Would love to interview Beau Stanton one day… I bet it would be fascinating to get into his process!
Thanks so much for reading!
