Looking Back: Momo

Growing up in a German-speaking household, the name Momo had only one meaning for me: the little girl who is the title character of Michael Ende’s landmark 1970s dystopian novel.

Sam3 and MOMO on a Roll

Sam3 and MOMO recently painted a large wall in Long Island City. On his blog, Sam3 writes that although the two artists have known each other for 10 years now, this was their first collaborative effort. I think MOMO’s colorful abstractions work well with Sam3’s black & white figures and hope to see more work … Continue reading Sam3 and MOMO on a Roll

Grottaglie’s Fame

The sleepy town of Grottaglie, located in the high heel of the boot that is Italy, is admittedly not on most tourist itineraries. Yet thanks to the tireless efforts of Studiocromie’s Angelo Milano, whose Fame Festival this summer celebrated it’s 4th year, I have made two pilgrimages to the tiny town – known primarily for … Continue reading Grottaglie’s Fame
