Art + Design

At Matador we’re always stoking on the evolution in art and design around the world, and sharing our favorite street art, modern architecture, and international artists remixing old forms into abstract art, creating something new.

By definition, art is the synthesis of human emotions with available media and materials, such as painting, sculpture, and photography, while design is the process of giving a form (such as a bridge or a surfboard) to a certain function (crossing water, surfing on water).

While not necessarily intended to express emotion, design can reach the level of art when it evokes emotional responses or in some way informs our experience of place.
