Remember in October when we showed you the mural El Mac gifted New York when he was in town for his show at Joshua Liner Gallery (covered) with Damon Soule?

Sketchbook: Yoskay Yamamoto (Part II)

We continue our look at artists’ sketchbooks with a peek at Yoskay Yamamoto’s (featured) recent efforts.  You may remember that we had brought you a glance through his sketches almost a year ago.  In fact, Yoskay was one of our first sketchbook features.  He most recently showed some work at Roq La Rue (covered) where the tried a new medium – paintings on paper – we’ll see if this continues in 2011. More pics after the jump…

We look forward to seeing what is in store for Joe in 2011 including an animation project and a show in Italy at Dorothy Circus in October. Discuss Joe Sorren here.

Streets: Olek (New York)

Agata Oleksiak or simply known has Olek has come into prominence recently for her crocheted interventions on the streets.  Although more commonly known for her bikes, the “Crochet Guerrilla” recently created a “sweater” for the famed Charging Bull or “Wallstreet Bull” in New York. Interestingly enough, the sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, originally installed the bull (costing the artist $360,000 of his own money) without permission in front of the New York Stock Exchange in December 1989 so this new work is somewhat of a homage […]
