Street art aficionados know that Freeman Alley is the premier spot on the LES for checking out contemporary street art as it is happening. The alley’s visual landscape of wheat pastes, stickers and stencils changes daily, so I like to head over there a few times a month to see what’s new and share the best discoveries here on the site. It was during a visit in mid-February that I started seeing the art of Goldloxe in a series of paste-ups depicting nearly identical little girls — wearing baby doll dresses, Mary Janes shoes and bobby socks — which are part of her Just a Girl collection. For Goldloxe, these girls are all about “Celebrating unapologetic women who won’t stop pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.” Heck yeah!

It’s Going to Be Okay
Jesus god, can you believe we’ve got just two more days of 2021 to survive before we kick off another year of weirdness? Personally, I lost track of linear time a while back. Maybe take some time today to think about whether or not you’re in a better place now than you were 365 days ago. If you’re not dead, then the answer is probably ‘Yes,’ but there is no objective reality. I know that I feel fortunate to be healthy — thanks to being vaccinated plus a booster — employed, and in the company of good friends. If you’re feeling not so great, try to end the year on a high note by being thankful for what you have rather than miserable for what you have not. It’s going to be okay

Space Girl By Mike Raz
Why is it that when artists depict lady astronauts they are always wearing a full face of make up, I ask yez. Is it to let the viewer know that the character is merely a work of fiction and could never exist in real life? Am I thinking about this too hard? Probably.
Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Melting Ice Cream Bar
Raddington Falls is the tag of street artist Rick Anthony Diaz (AKA Rad) who specializes in paste-ups of LEGO-Like toy figures accompanied by socially conscious messages. This Pink Melted Ice Cream Bar marks the first time I’ve seen an isolated image of his without an accompanying humanoid figure. Very intriguing.
