GO SEE IT!
547 West 25th Street
My fave word.. (detail from above)
Over the course of several days I watched this master of the streets transform a massive drab wall into an explosion of color.
Invited to the pre-opening event & got to meet a ton of the artists in the Jonathan LeVine/Wooster Collective pop-up show.
Below are just a couple works I liked.
Best in show for me was Bäst's pair of guns.
Just found a Miami show catalog from a 2001.
Feeling my age today having hung out for many hours & even 'danced' a bit to the deep sounds of LUCIANO & CARL CRAIG.
The event was part of promoter Verboten's StageONE on Brooklyn's Williamsburg waterfront series.
Paul Morris took me up on stage to watch the lads having fun & do their magic.
..but then turn around
Below, some of the works that were inspiring to me, or just got me all hot & bothered.
