Joshua Vides has made quite a name for himself in the past few years with his distinct and highly-sought after black and white pop art style. Successful collaborations with Fendi and Converse are a testament to how wanted his services and work are in the industry.

In his latest endeavor, Vides links up with serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Afters Ice Cream, Andy Nguyen, to create a one-of-a-kind coffee experience in Downtown Los Angeles. Dubbed Matte Black Coffee, the surreal café is an immersive dive into the stylings of Vides.

Upon stepping into Matte Black, customers are treated to a pop art trip, where reality gets blurred into the dreamlike space. Go ahead and snap a few pics while you sip on tasty drinks like a White Chocolate Lavender Cold Brew, snack on haute macarons and vibe out to the IG-friendly surroundings.

Grand opening is in late August, so follow @matteblackcoffee for further deets!
