BEAUTY: Mixed Media--Paige Smith
Paige Smith is a Los Angeles graphic designer and artist who uses the moniker A Common Name. She has recently started a street art project that is original and quite fun... she uses cracks in buildings, empty phone booths, or any little urban space to install "geodes" made of paper and paint! These faux-mineral specimens mimic the crystal formations found in rocks (geodes) and caves in nature, and their unexpected presence turns walking down the street into a city-spelunking adventure! I'd love to stumble across one of these.
