Walk on the West Side

On a bright but chilly sunday afternoon, I decided to take a walk on the West side of the city , and here is my West Side Story in pictures with some amazing Street Art characters.

$how Me the Money

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell stacks dollars tattooing celebrities, so he can laser cut his piles of cash, go & check his first  NY exhibition  called “If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long” – April 29 – May 30, 2010 at 109 Crosby Street (between Prince & Houston).

Shepard Fairey

The final exhibition at Deitch Gallery, is with one of the top money maker of Street Art, Shepard Fairey, aka Obey. The opening was the it event of the year, the whole block was packed, and filled with celebs’.  “May Day ” at Deitch Projects, 18 Wooster Street, May 1 – 29, 2010.

Banksy Exit Through the Gift Shop

The best movie/documentary I  have seen in a year. Period.

Mister Brainwash

The biggest con artist ever, it make sense to see his exhibition  just if you have seen the Banksy Film, I won’t tell more asides that MBW is a Frenchie 😉 – ICONS REMIX – Opening Sunday May 9th at 3pm – 415 W 13th street, NYC, until the end of May. Muchas Gracias @foodrap for the picture, and check out his blog he has super nice pictures on a daily basis.

Close up at the wall decoration @ Anthropolgy

Yesterday I went to the Anthropologie store on 5th Ave & 16th street and they had the Xmas decoration full on already:

Here is a close up,  it is made out of paper cups stick together, and reminded me strongly of  a great artist I have seen for the first time at the Met a couple years ago…

In the same spirit I like a photographer named Chris Jordan and his series of mass consumption :

MoMA with PoPa

Yesterday I went to my favorite museum in NYC, the Moma with my Popa who was visiting me here for the first time. Here are some snapshots taken with my iPhone with the effect of the polarize App, and written on the WordPress App for the iPhone as well.

     
     
     
     
     
     
     

Apps used for this post : the Polaroid effect is done with Polarize (free App) WordPress (free as well) . Enjoy !

I can’t wait for the Tim Burton Exhibition next week !!


Quel temps de … shit

Banksy @ Bristol Museum

I am so tired of the weather in New York, this winter was one of the longest, and June feels like October… so long  week ends at the beach, flip flop tan marks, and roof parties , and welcome Sundays at the museum and movies.

Banksy‘s opening at the Bristol museum is tomorrow for my fellow Brits , Francis Bacon at The Metropolitan Museum, Valentino the Last Emperor Documentary, Yayoi Kusama at the Gagosian Gallery, and the pictures to illustrate this post are from Paul Graves.
