Blade: King of Graffiti

In all probability, BLADE has painted more subway cars than you have ever ridden on. By 1980, after reaching 5000 or so, the graffiti pioneer stopped counting. In this new 256-page book edited by Roger Gastman, BLADE sits down with Chris ‘FREEDOM’ Pape to reflect on a life of getaways, girls, and the golden years of graffiti. His story is one for the ages, and a must read for those fascinated with the “old” New York.

On a related note for those in NYC: This Friday (8/8) BLADE and Chris Pape will be at the Museum of the City of New York for a presentation and book signing in relation to their new book. More info on that here

“Summer in a Bowl”


This flower soup at Box Kite in the East Village looks ridiculous. According to the restaurant’s instagram, it’s “a cocktail of fermented tomato & dashi, burpless cucumber, flowers and beach peas.”

Ryan McGinness: Signs, 2014

Working with the New York City Department of Transportation who fabricated and installed each piece, Ryan McGinness’s new project Signs, 2014 features a series of fifty vinyl on aluminum signs posted around the streets of Manhattan. While technically on view until August 30, 2014, these public works of art are slowly falling victim to the underground entrepreneurial mindset of NYC, and disappearing from their present locations. Here, we look through some of the “Notes” about each piece published by Ryan McGinness Studios, as this might be the only chance you have to actually see the works.
