Spectrum at Gallery Brooklyn

spectrum-flyer-664x664

I’m very excited for this weekend’s Spectrum show at Red Hook’s Gallery Brooklyn, curated by the one and only Choice Royce. With Rubin, Hellbent, EKG, See One and Col, Royce has put together a line-up of artists who aren’t afraid to experiment – willfully, boldly and colorfully – at the cross section of abstract art and graffiti. Do not sit this one out!

New Cake in Brooklyn

We haven’t seen a lot of work on the street from the Brooklyn based artist Cake lately, but when she gets up, she sure does make it count!  A few new pieces of hers recently popped up in Red Hook, which I must say has been in desperate need of some artistic beautification.  All are hand painted, with one being a smaller, more intimate piece that has been more typical of her work on the street.  The other two are no less delicate and esoteric, but definitely show that she is pushing at boundaries with the size of her pieces.

For those on the west coast who can’t see her work here in person, Cake is one of the featured artists in ‘Street Art Saved My Life’ presented by Brooklyn Street Art and Thinkspace at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice, CA.  She’ll also be participating in Living Walls: Albany, a city wide art & urban education conference from September 16-18th.
