Rod Andrade

Rod Andrade is a local artist from Toronto, and we snapped him while he was selling some of his silk-screened wood pieces at the Queen West Art Crawl in Trinity Bellwoods Park. It’s clear that an artist needs an equally artistic pair of glasses, and these frames fit the bill. We love the bright red and orange tones, reminiscent of a lava lamp or abstract painting. The rectangular shape is a classic silhouette, but the metal accents on the temples add a modern, industrial twist. Between the bold colors and details, this is not an easy pair of glasses to pull off, but Rod does it effortlessly. Oh and that handkerchief scarf and the blue sneakers: a fashionable – and yes, artistic – touch.
