Luna Park’s Favorites for 2015

For me personally 2015 marked a year when things got real and everything – including documenting street art & graffiti and most definitely blogging – was put on the back burner. Nevertheless here’s a small selection of artworks, places and moments that resonated with me this year.

top 40 for 2015

My thanks and gratitude for all the love and support these past months…

ECB in Brooklyn

German artist Hendrik ‘ECB’ Beikirch has painted in Bushwick with and as part of Robots Will Kill for many years. A recent return visit was inspiration to look back in my archive for photos of past work painted – these images stretch back to 2008.

Valentine’s Day tops my list of saccharine Hallmark holidays that suck. When my good friend EKG shared his plans to put on a dark, Valentine’s Eve extravaganza, I knew his idea would resonate with many people:

“The EKG♥NYC exhibition installation is a silhouette of an abstraction of our cityscape constructed of everyday objects painted black and orange: a metaphor for human resonance manifested on the corporeal plane and the wafting misty sparking static of the Aetherial Semiotosphere that electrifies the space between the physical and the mental, consisting of an aspirational architecture of spires and grids; a wireframe conglomeration of modular three-dimensional schematics; an energizing iconographic display of orange resonance, wraiths, chimeras, apparitions, projections, illuminations, emanations, vibrations, palpitations, oscillations, transmissions, frequencies, broadcasts, signals, ripples, waves, pulses, blips; an uplifting experience broadcast through radars, tridents, buttons, balloons, stickers, t-shirts, zines, prints, patches, flags, drawings, paintings.”

Sound designer Jefferson Wells will also strike some chords at the opening. Come for the mutant cityscape, stay for the dronecore – it promises to be a very metal way to ring in the weekend.
