This Weekend May 14-17th don’t miss ‘NY local’, an exhibition curated by designboom that presents the work of some of the big apple’s best transplants, expats, design veterans and rising stars.
‘NY local’ is part of an off-site event program in the meatpacking district.
Make sure to check out the work by TWBE’s friend Matt Gagnon ( “grid wall” featured above)
Matt’s work can be described as complex concepts executed elegently.(that’s just me)
It’s not really a baby Jesus. Maybe all the catholic schooling makes me thing any brown-haired, white robe figure is Jesus. Anyway these little vinyl figures are from Momiji and designed by Camila De Gregorio. Camila hails from Chile, where she works as a graphic designer and models.
On July 21st, 1971 the headline ‘Taki 183′ Spawns Pen Pals appeared in the NY Times. On May 13th, 2009, Taki 183 got a website. The first two lines of the Times article read as such “Taki is a Manhattan teenager who writes his name and his street number everywhere he goes. He says it is something he just has to do.” I didn’t want to pay for the rest of the article but, you can (or if you’re smart, download it from his site or peep it after the jump.) I am more concerned with spending my money on one of the spraypainted prints that are for sale on his website. Yes, that tag above is original, and spraypainted by Taki himself. True graffiti history.
We kind of have a thing for Marci Washington, maybe after seeing this print you will too. Available for $20 through Tiny Showcase, this print is worth every cent. There are only about 30 left from the edition of 100, so act soon!
