Welcome to the June issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best in design + art projects from all over the world. The magazine is published ten times a year by CODAworx. We’re an online community for artists and design professionals to showcase their work, collaborate with one another, and earn recognition for their projects.
Art that transforms walls is the organizing principle of this month’s issue. Artists and designers are taking the fundamental building block of our structural environment and turning the walls of our spaces into rich and amazing canvases for art. CODAmagazine documents this trend; we have selected 25 evocative projects that are certain to delight.
These are collaborative projects that reinvent the concept of the wall—by adorning, covering, and constructing the walls that make up our built habitats. Some creative professionals apply transformative surface design, using new materials and techniques. Check out S.Alt City by Brett Snyder. Others are literally building walls that become a strong and innovative presence in the environments we inhabit, like Radlab’s Landmark Walls.
Smaller-scale wall work adds meaning and emotion to our living spaces as Juanita Yoder’s Glassblower’s Breath does, just as massive wall pieces incorporate color and graphics to turn the walls of buildings into giant billboards.
It’s a spectacular collection—an example of the wondrous things artists and designers can accomplish when they collaborate. We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing these incredible collaborations with you.
