This random piece of literal Street Art was spotted by me while I was wandering around the lower east side taking photos for This Post. All I saw was a flash of bright pink in the street, so I just got down in it with the iPhone and took a snap. It wasn’t untilI I arrived back home and took a good look at the photo that I recognized this dazzling mess as a crushed toner cartridge with the magenta toner dust sprayed artfully across the blacktop. Happy accidents: I welcome them.
Aw, how cute is this Piglet Pez Dispenser? Super SQUEE!
If you pay attention to global pop culture, then you’ve probably heard of the Japanese Harajuku style and Kawaii (Cuteness) culture, where the adorable has an undercurrent of rebellious edge. For just a short time you can immerse yourself in a kind of Cuteness Overload at Tokyo-based Artist and Fashion Designer Sebastian Masuda’s Colorful Rebellion (Seventh Nightmare) installation, through March 29th only at Kianga Ellis Projects. Geoffrey and I paid the space a visit yesterday and it was positively disorienting.
Not exactly Starry Eyes, but something similar.
