New York City’s Sant Ambroeus restaurants are regularly visited by tourists, locals, and celebrities for its rustic Italian dishes. What separates the SoHo outpost from the Milanese chain’s West Village and Upper East Side locations is its wall of art plates curated by Alireza Niroomand. The sprawling presentation is filled with over 200 plates designed by multifaceted artists and brands spanning Andre Saraiva, FAUST, NIGO, Sarah Andelman, Maison Kitsune, Stone Island, among others.

The latest addition to the wall is a ceramic plate in homage to HYPEBEAST that was hand-painted by multifaceted NYC artist, Josanna Torrocha. “Since HYPEBEAST originated in China, I wanted to bring in traditional Chinese pottery designs to this plate,” said Torrocha. “In my research, I was inspired by Chinese mythology. Dragons were believed to create clouds from their breath which have been associated with rain thus symbolizing growth and prosperity. Decorated around the rim of the plate are lotus flowers symbolizing life and honor.”

Porcelain isn’t an unfamiliar medium for the artist who has painted on numerous cups and plates for close friends. As for her personal style, Torrocha says that she’s “quite partial to religious figures and mythology” while also honing on portraiture. She continues to be inspired by her favorite artists FAUST and GARY MSK who’ve passed on invaluable insights onto the artist in regards to working with type and calligraphy.
