Geoffrey and I had some time to kill after our wonderful day spent at MOMA, so we headed over to Rockefeller Center to check out the latest Jeff Koons public artwork: a giant flowering sculpture depicting half a of Rocking Horse Head and half of a Dinosaur Head called Split-Rocker. Koons did something similar back in 1992 with Puppy, now on permanent view at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.

Opera Gallery Presents Streets of the World

Streets Of The World Invite

From LA to London and beyond, so many cities around the world embrace a thriving and vibrant Street Art scene. Leave it to Opera Gallery (with its global presence) to realize that it just makes sense to curate  a group show representing the artists of the world who never stop creating in innovative ways in an effort make sure that you never stop thinking about why things are the way they are. Because when you really get it, you know that Street Art isn’t just about creating a distraction, or making something that’s nice to look at; it’s about conveying a message.

Streets of the World collects the work of 40 global contemporary  artists that have emerged from the Street Art Movement. A number of the participating artists, such as Banksy, Kenny Scharf and Os Gemeos, represent International Household Names of Street Artists. Others, including Ron English, Logan Hicks, and collectives The London Police and Trustocorp, exhibit regularly at Opera, so we were already familiar with, and fans of, their work. But many others were exciting  discoveries. Overwhelming new favorites are selected works by How and Nosm (from Germany), Interesni Kazki (Ukraine) and Spain’s Sixeart. There is so much to see at this exhibit, and Opera has accented every wall — including the stairwell and the entire basement space — with exciting paintings, sculptures and collage.
