Triple Play: JJ Veronis

It’s been a while since we featured JJ Veronis on the blog, so I’m very excited to share some of the excellent, new work he’s put up recently!

JJ Veronis‘ latest street piece is absolutely exquisite – a weeping St. Mary is surrounded by a circle of welded fire, while a sacred heart wrapped in barbed-wire dangles below. A very special shout-out to eagle-eyed Allan Mohlo for finding this.

Hot on the heels of Becki spotting a new piece in Brooklyn, I came across another new JJ Veronis piece in Manhattan yesterday. This is one of several tribute pieces to draw attention to the Andy Kessler Foundation.

Paying Tribute

Installed at one of Williamsburg’s prime skate spots, metal sculpture bolt-up artist J. J. Veronis pays tribute to his friend, skateboarding legend Andy Kessler, who died unexpectedly in early August.

“We loved him for his straight-up candor,” said J. J. Veronis, 46. “That boldness was like an avenue he would open up right in front of you to follow.” [NYT]
