After checking in with Japanese artist Toshikazu Nozaka at retail space Nubian, Red Bull Curates Protégés moves to Los Angeles to catch up with artist Spencer Gilbert, also known as MAR. A native of California, the artist draws from a myriad of experiences and influences in his artwork. With this cooler for BLENDS, the artist created a flower-inspired pattern done up in shades of grey to represent a person’s life experiences and bold splashes of red to represent the the good things in life.

After receiving the cooler, which currently takes pride of place in BLENDS’ newest location, Sergio Martinez, the store manager, and Tak, the owner share some insights into the BLENDS concept and how art forms an important part of the store and for the culture at-large. Check out the video now and stay tuned for an upcoming look at BLENDS’ Los Angeles location and more from Red Bull Curates Proteges.
