Buff Monster: I Love NY Mural

I see this mural every time I take the M15 Select Bus home from work and it stops at the First Street and First Avenue stop, because it is right there, basically.

A couple of days ago, I got off the bus at that stop and took this photo, because Buff Monster is awesome.

What I like most about this sculpture by Polish-born artist Piotr Uklanski (b. 1968), is the visceral response it elicits, because it does look something like what a real, human heart might, if it was covered with thick layers of dripping encaustic. Untitled (Sacre Coeur), 2015 (Resin on patinated metal stand) is currently part of larger, mostly photographic exhibit by the artist that you can see at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on Fifth Avenue in NYC.

A three-dimensional art piece that looks as if it were made out of cubes, Shinji Murakami’s 3D-8 Bit series was born from the idea that you could translate the pixelated bumpiness of 8-bit imagery into a three-dimensional form. This creations pushes him to contemplate not only the simplest expression of a subject, but the exact opposite of that process: the discovery of the most important lens through which to perceive the subject.
