Becki and I poked around Fort Tilden a week ago… although it’s not what it used to be, there’s still plenty of graffiti to be found.

"The Community Serviced" Opening

Last night was a fun night filled with art, music, tattoos, video games, and even some Cirque du Soleil-esque contortionism. No, it wasn’t just another night at a hipster bar in Williamsburg, this was “The Community Serviced”, a show curated by Andrew H. Shirley which featured 12 uniquely produced Showpaper newspaper boxes designed by 24 artists. After the opening night, the works will be placed around the city to serve the community both as public art pieces as well as an expansion of Showpaper’s distribution network of their bi-monthly publication.

Here’s hoping that they last long enough!

UFO Sighting

With the holiday weekend and the heat wave behind us (well, hopefully), New Yorkers are getting back into their regular routines again. Luckily for us, to the 907 crew and their friends, this means painting. New work from Darkcloud, Swampy, Goya, UFO, Gen2, Sadue, Cool Cat and more was in progress today along a block in Brooklyn. With so many of my local favorites in one place, I will definitely be going back for some shots of the finished wall, so stay tuned!
