I can’t believe that Pride Month is coming to a close already, when it should really be celebrated all year! Wah! You still have time to celebrate Pride with many activities, including the Parade, planned for today, June 26th. Get all the details at This Link!
This Mural, which went up on June 15th, 2022, is located on First Avenue near 16th Street on the stop front of the Stuyvesant Town Leasing Office.
This Pink Winged Pig Unicorn (Unipig? Pigicorn?) was spotted inside one of the themed-rooms at midtown’s sweetest attraction, The Candytopia. If memory serves, I recall that this room, located towards the end of the exhibit, is the one where enthusiastic-but-misguided docents threw a cup of paper confetti in my face as I walked through the entrance, completely obliterating the only-half-drunk cocktail in my hand. Huge bummer.
NYC Street Art Fans know that Freeman Alley on the LES is probably the prime location in the city for discovering exciting new pieces from artists who travel from all over to paint and paste-up their latest works in the narrow passageway that leads from Rivington Street to one of the best farm-to-table restaurants in the city.
An undeniable showstopper of the 2019 Salon Art + Design show in NYC, the translucent, rainbow-hued Minosse Glass Block Chair remains one of the most breathtaking pieces on the floor. Comprising a range of glass blocks set individually by hand, Minosserecalls ‘the labyrinthine geometries of mythic palaces belonging to ancient civilizations.’
An original design by Milan-based studiopluz, the chair was exhibited by London’s WonderGlass gallery as an integral part of its site-specific Dark Matter installation. Exploring the transformation of matter, sound, cosmic geometry, and light, Dark Matter was created in a collaboration that also included Tokyo-based studio, Curiosity by Gwenael Nicolas.
The throne-like chair pushes the boundaries of glass manipulation, allowing for the piece to represent advancements in color combination with the glass surface used as a white canvas upon which paint is applied by hand. The process is impossible to replicate, thus allowing each piece to celebrate individual authenticity as an integral part of its design resolution.
