11 spring street


Here's a bit of ethereal art for you, full of whimsy and color. A refuge from the sea of black I have been seeing in Downtown NYC and beyond.


11 Spring Street, the Nolita building that is home to some of the best street art, is changing hands and will be turned into a one family home (lucky bastards). Last weekend, it was open to the public for the first and last time. It was dripping in images. The above snippets do not do it justice. If you are interested in a taste of the experience, just check out the photos on flickr. I was excited to see all of the bird images--animal prints have been really strong lately, and I believe that that trend will continue for quite some time. Some of the art reminded me of Dries Van Noten's spring 2006 collection. It was mostly the colors, but also the same kind of fantastical whimsy, not to mention the brilliant shoes that they featured with birds embroidered in silk.


Not the clearest shot, but worth drooling over anyway:
