from Post-It V @ Giant Robot NY

By chance, I passed by Giant Robot on East 9th St. yesterday evening while this Post-It exhibit was being installed. There must have been over 100 artists represented. Each piece is intriguing. 'kind of what I'd like to see on stickers!

NYC Street Art

it seems as though that door on Rivington Street -- where I first discovered Swoon -- is changing more rapidly than ever! Each time I've passed by within the past two months, a different image greets me. I'm not sure what's going on here, as it's getting too messy to appreciate anything!

Faber explained to me that as ephemeral as street art is, it is even more so in Lima! We were happy that this piece was still in place and largely intact. This photo just captures a section of a huge, impressive figure created by Faber.

In this segment from a much larger mural, I´m loving the juxtaposition between Bronik´s imposing character and Faber´s ethereal cyclist.

The first mural I visited in Peru is the creation of Entes, P├ęsimo and the members of the 93 crew. It´s a brilliant fusion of distinct sensibilities all working together.
