I picked up a new book on stencil art at MoMa's bookshop on Thursday. (Howze, Russell. STENCIL NATION: GRAFFITI, COMMUNITY AND ART. Manic D Press, San Francisco, 2008.) 'recognized many of the artists whose work I'd just seen at the Cans Festival in London. I love the diversity of what's included here. I wish, though, that there had been a stronger sampling from Tel Aviv. Its two pages devoted to TA stencil art -- despite its inclusion of Ame72 and Rami Meiri -- are hardly indicative of what's happening there. 'was glad to see A1one's work represented.
Educator, writer and curator. Poetry Teacher of the Year, 1988, awarded by Poets House and NYC Board of Education. I co-authored three books back in the 90's -- two of which were cited as best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library. (The Place I Call Home: Voices and Faces of Homeless Teens and Jerusalem Mosaic: Young Voices from the Holy City.) Both books have also been cited by the Library of Congress for their "strong and honest voice of the young adult." I also authored A to Z : The Book of Rap & Hip Hop Slang -- with entries that have since been cited by dozens of dictionaries.
