Simply titled “floor tiles in abandoned spaces,” Javier de Riba has created some of the coolest painted patterns in the most unlikely locations. The Barcelona based artist is part of the Reskate Arts & Crafts Collective, who develop graphics and communication projects with a focus on sustainability and humane treatment. Using paint and geometric tile-like patterns abandoned floors are given new life. Similarly using varnish de Riba has also taken to “improving” abandoned wood pieces as well. A few of my favorites are below.
