In a unique meeting of art and fashion, Los Angeles-based artist Sterling Ruby used the walls, floors and ceilings of Raf Simons' Tokyo clothing boutique as a canvas.

The effect of the blue paint splattered against the stark white surfaces is striking. Undertaking a project like this would be every paintbrush-toting kid's dream!

Perhaps I have watched too many episodes of 'Dexter,' but the boutique looks a bit like a blue-blooded crime scene to me.

Implications - QUOTATIONS ARE FOR QUOTES. SINGLE QUOTES ARE FOR TITLES

"Art everywhere" is an emerging design trope that treats every flat surface as a potential mural or canvas. Companies whose storefronts, offices or products sport artistic depictions everywhere will certainly attract the growing segment of the population interested in painting, illustration or design in general.
