Comical Stikmen

Walking around the vicinity of Williamsburg’s Pandemic Gallery, where Stikman recently had a show, I recently discovered a couple of new and amusing wheatpastes. This one reads:

Her: She wants that pile of sticks instead of you…?
Him: I told her to choose… him… or me.

And then there’s He’s Looking for People Who Like to Draw

Chinatown’s tiny Klughaus Gallery, which opened last December, is NYC’s latest gallery to work “primarily with artists that have roots in graffiti and street culture”. For their fourth show, Klughaus is exhibiting Portland, Oregon-based artist and cartoonist Aaron OBLVN in his East Coast debut. The talented illustrator has created 100 Paintings that cleverly riff on classic cartoon characters. Photos do not do his exquisite line-work justice – these pieces beg to be seen in person. The gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays, so this weekend and next are your last opportunities to catch the show before it closes on April 1st. Do not miss!
