Jesus Saves -- whose tag is just about everywhere in NYC

We made it over to Pandemic Gallery’s current exhibit ALL TALK! earlier in the week and loved the way it presented the works of some of our favorite artists whose work surface regularly in the public sphere. We also loved the incredible mix of aesthetic sensibilities. Here’s a sampling:

Macay’s Surreal Collages Surface in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

December 28th, 2011 | By | No Comments »

We recently came upon some unusual paste-ups in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. A surreal mix of natural elements and characters, they are eerily enchanting.  It turns out they are the work of Chilean artist Macay, who has been getting her work out on the streets of London for a while now. Here’s a sampling:

Those Blazing Bushwick Graffiti Walls: Rubin 415, Never, Preta & more

December 9th, 2011 | By | 3 Comments »

Those graffiti murals in Bushwick are among the most vibrant anywhere. They also attest to graffiti’s continual evolution. And while so many “street artists” who grace our walls with wonderfully provocative images often retire from the streets, most of the writers keep on doing their thing in the public sphere. Here are a few images we saw this morning:
