Yesterday morning, Pose MSK finished up this mural for The L.I.S.A. Project NYC at 188 Lafayette (Lafayette and Broome). This is phase one though. Later this year, Pose will be back to paint the entire five story wall.
Pose’s mural was organized by The L.I.S.A. Project NYC with support from Robin Mui, CEO of Sing Tao Newspapers NY, and Kate’s Paperie, which is right next to the mural.
Pose in in New York City because he’s showing with Jonathan Levine Gallery at VOLTA this weekend for Armory Week. VOLTA tends to be one of my favorite fairs, along with Fountain and Scope. Fountain is great because it’s unpretentious and fun, Scope tends to have the most artists whose work I’m familiar so it’s a nice way to see what people have been up to, and VOLTA is where I go to find great new artists. VOLTA’s format is a bit abnormal, but it works great. Each gallery only shows one artist in their booth, so (at least compared to other fairs) it feels a lot less like a flea market or a mall. For a more detailed list of the art fairs happening in NYC this week, check Hyperallergic.
Here are some more photos of the new mural:
