I'd heard about the "LoisInWonderland" postal a few weeks back from one of my Flickr contacts. 'was glad to come across it yesterday in SoHo! Its creator has been posting some of the most clever stickers in town!
I received two copies of the book this past week. I'm thrilled to be a part of it with photos I captured of Chris's amazing artwork in London, Tel Aviv and in his hometown, Vitry, just outside of Paris. The book will be available in book stores in early 2011.
I had great expectations for "Law of the Jungle" -- an exhibit of diverse artwork from Brazil on the theme of survival. I was quite disappointed, though. Except or the Os Gemeos piece, there was little that compared in substance or quality to what I saw this past summer in the streets of Sao Paulo.
I came upon this in DUMBO earlier today. It was the first street art tribute I spotted to Sure (R.I.P.) Later, while heading from 14th St. to FIT's book store on 27th, I came upon quite a few sticker tributes. I will certainly miss SURE and his impeccable handstyle -- a part of my daily NYC visual landscape.
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.
