I have a new column devoted to street art and titled “Re:Public“ that made it’s debut on ArtCal today.
The monthly column plans to explore the fast-evolving street art scene and its obsession with public/private space and breaking rules.
I am very excited for its evolving nature which will–I hope–partake in a conversation with the work itself. All good street art is part of the great urban dialogue that us city dwellers take for granted so with a column I hope to capture some of the back and forth as I interview, critique and explore the new, curious and beautiful on the walls, tunnels and hidden niches of New York.
Today’s column talks to two talents that hit the streets running this year:
- the culture-jamming Poster Boy; and
- the geometrically-pure Aakash Nihalani.
Already being recognized for their ephemeral contributions to the genre, I’ve created an annotated photo essay to accompany the article here.
Since I can never possibly be everywhere, I partly rely on fans, artists and casual admirers of street art to provide me with tips and photos about New York’s wondrous scenes, so feel free to pitch me with ideas and suggestions either in the comments of this post or via email (the link is on the top right of this blog).
