Here you can follow the latest project by TheMarigold! We are redoing the restaurant Casa Chez Papouin Tarifa, Spain. The restaurant clearly had an image problem from the start and the interior didn’t attract much people because of its dark walls and furniture.
The idea was to give it a new and more attractive touch, to brighten everything up on the inside and to have a more visible facade. We chose to do this by bringing in some eclectic modern art and by painting all the furniture inside and outside in white (mixed with sand from the beach for a more rough and used touch). Firouz Farman-Farmaian then did some of his famous dripping in orange and red on each table and we covered the grey walls with a vibrant painting in 6 pieces to finalize the new artistic image of the restaurant.
On the tables you now find painted African pumpkins as candle holders and above the bar an old surfboard that Firouz has painted in the same color scheme.
The place is today an arty spot in Tarifa, famous for its original decor and its chicken dishes so do pop in for a bite and some of Papou’s famous cocktails if you happen to be in South of Spain !
A project by TheMarigold, all photos personal. All artwork by Firouz Farman-Farmaian
Firouz Farman-Farmaianis showing 13 pieces in collaboration with the hotel Posada La Sacristia in Tarifa, Spain. For this show the artist was inspired by the elements of nature and more specifically by the 2 winds in Tarifa; the levante and the poniente. It’s a striking serie with vibrant colors conveying a message of depth and emotion. Taking a closer look at the pieces you will see the powerful interaction of energy and nature that the artists is so known for.
I will keep you updated on his next art exhibition that will take place in Paris during the month of May. Be inspired !
I love these white stone houses in the old town, they are all beautiful and full of history, I can’t wait to have my own one. Beauty is everywhere so let’s be inspired by all the small and wonderful details around us.
