Bebop Like No Other

Sevag Aksu has created his version of a local artist hotspot for all talents to be showcased, appreciated, and experienced. The wholesome culture and the foundation of vintage art are portrayed in every trinket, photo and piece of musical history within those walls. Sev did a phenomenal job to  best showcase  all genres of artistic originality.

Aksu’s multitude of years in the film industry and his experience in post production played a huge role in the carefully curated design, not only for the atmosphere, but also the everyday life goal of supporting the artist walking through his door. He was able to create such a beautiful space where the sounds can be best heard. The visual layout and design of the entire shop lend themselves to those performances being put on and  adds great character to the art being shared.

“I would consider it to be a life goal of mine to build the community, even going further, the artist voices within our community.” states Aksu.
