Hippo Boutique Red Bull Room by Word of Art It's great seeing spaces that you wouldn't traditionally see street brands be in, actually welcome and facilitate a street culture. Established & Partners hooked us up with the Hippo Boutique Hotel's Red Bull Suite, which was put together by Ricky Gordon and the guys over at Word Of Art. The press release reads:
Hippo Boutique Hotel is proud to unveil the Red Bull Suite, a collaboration with the world's best selling energy drink and one of the hottest global brands. Given carte blanche to do what they wanted with the space, Red Bull brought in Cape Town agency Word of Art who conceptualised a room dedicated to the underground street cultures that Red Bull has supported for many years. Popular artists and illustrators Theory One, Faith47, Wesley Van Eedon, Maklone, Black Koki, 351073, Senyol, Elbow Grease, Toe007 and Warren Lewis created original artworks for the space. The final result is a fresh urban take on the Red Bull lifestyle and a hotel room that any hip urban dweller will feel right at home in.
Check out some more pics after the jump, or visit the Hippo Boutique website. The photos were all taken by Jonx Pillemer.

'No Strange Land' is a group show featuring five emerging creatives working within the fields of music, fine arts, illustration and fashion. Combining their strengths and efforts they have conceptualised an intimate group show under the banner 'No Strange Land'. The emphasis is on the title of the show and for each artist, to individually interpret their own theme and connotations around the title, 'No Strange Land'. Each artist is exploring different avenues surrounding the title. The artists are working within their preferred mediums and wrestling with themes encompassing distance, travel, languages, family and unity.
