Jayson Naylor’s murals are easy to recognize for his use of bold, psychedelic colors and pop culture images wrapped around an uplifting message. This piece, which is on the side a store located at the northeast corner of Grand Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is called Indulge in Love. As you can see, Jayson has spelled out the word LOVE using images of things we all love to indulge in, such as . . .
An Ice Cream Cone.
A little bit of Love with a Heart-shapedV.
A Delicious Piece of Fruit!
Jayson also a has a piece on the building behind this one, which is only partially visible from street level, so I’m afraid I cannot tell you what that one says. Indulge In Love went up in August of 2019.
Do you love Avocados? I sure do. From Avocado Toast to Guacamole, I am all about the green, pear-shaped, buttery fruit. Yummy. If you feel similarly, why not show your love by wearing this Avocado Heart T Shirt, featuring an awesome design by Adrian Serghie, which is on sale for just $24.95, at This Link.
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.
