Phlegm’s first walls in the USA

Phlegm, visiting from the UK, has just completed his first three murals in the USA. They are all located in Manhattan. One of the walls is a semi-collaboration with Know Hope, where Phlegm has added a mural that Know Hope painted earlier this year. That wall is part of an ongoing project with MaNY and FABnyc.

Cake’s Women at Home off the Bowery

About four years ago, I began noticing Cake’s women wheatpasted onto the walls of  Williamsburg and Chelsea.  Their poignant elegance transfixed me.  Even in various stages of decay, they never lost their heart-rending beauty.  Thanks to Keith Schweitzer and MaNY, in collaboration with FabNYC, three of Cake’s women have now found a home off the Bowery in Lower Manhattan.  Here are some scenes from today’s installation:

And a wonderful full view of the installation can be seen on Cake’s page.
