Becki Fuller’s 2010 Top 40

2010 has been yet another crazy year, filled with lots of change, adventure, and as always, fun. The highlight for me was the adoption of my dog Ava, who I consider to be New York’s #1 pit bull street art model. I was also very fortunate in getting to meet and spend time with some really fantastic people, such as ECB, Jef Aerosol, Sweet Toof, Ludo, and Roa, during their stays in the city. My trips to Oaxaca, Art Basel Miami, and getting to see Steve Powers bring his Love Letter project to my hometown of Syracuse were a great way to rounded out the year. After taking a look back on this year, I would like to share some of my favorite photos, people, art & events from 2010 (see Luna Park’s list here).

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

An otherwise unremarkable block of Tenth Avenue recently got a facelift courtesy of the artist El Mac, who opened his show The Humble and Sublime at Joshua Liner Gallery last week. The precision — and steady hand — with which he crafts his pieces is truly remarkable. The guys from the neighboring auto workshop swelled with pride as they saw me take my camera of my bag. “She’s a beauty!” one of them exclaimed. I couldn’t agree more. His show is up through November 6th.
