Back in April, the artist, SHEPARD FAIREY, who you may know from his work with the clothing line, OBEY, was commissioned to do a mural in L.E.S., NYC (corner of Bowery and Houston St.). The mural turned out really dope to say the least. Check it out!
Hey Folks! Hope all has been well in everyones world since I last checked in. But as I promised, the second installment of my day @ Five Pointz, LIC, NYC…Enjoy!—R3vERb
FIVE POINTZ Part 1
Sometimes I get a little snapshot craze when I’m out, moving thru space. On this day, I had very good reason. I wasn’t on my way anywhere in specific that day, but had planned to go by this place in Long Island City, Queens, called “Five Pointz: The Institute of Higher Burner aka FIVE POINTZ Aerosol Art Center”. The funny thing was that, in a random search on google one day, almost four years ago, I found a picture of this place that was totally covered in Graffiti. Ironically, it was a picture of FIve Pointz some years earlier. I’m not a Graffer myself, but I have a few friends that are, and just have been an admirer of the Art since a youngster. It was kinda hard not being a little intrigued by the art form growing up in NYC, and loving Hip Hop culture. It was everywhere, on buildings, billboards, trains, etc. Well enough of me rambling. Here are a few shots I took while visiting. Enjoy! Part 2 coming soon !—R3vERb
FIve Pointz is located right off the G and 7 train, at Court Square.
