One day I fly away…



‘…One day I’ll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends…’

The Beauty In The Dark

The Wrinkles of the CityHavana Cuba, is a collaborative project by New York based artist  José Parlá & French artist JR.  Last year, JR and Parlá, who is of Cuban descent, interviewed senior citizens about their experience living through the Cuban revolution. Dozens of  portraits of their interviewees were transferred on the walls of city buildings.

The Wrinkles of the City combines Parlá’s style of fusing images with palimpsestic, calligraphic writings as well as JR’s vibrant, colossal murals. The exhibition opens on May 7 at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in Chelsea.

Vie en Ville

JR is a French artist whom uses the urban landscape as his canvas. Using the camera he found in Paris, he started of capturing the decorative and sometimes provocative streetart on the walls of the city. All this inspired him and he started his own project. JR uses photography in all his projects. He exhibits on the walls of the world and attracts a lot of attention with his huge portraits! Amazing, for more check this.

Don’t hate the player

Vacuum Packed

The tanks and army men make me think that Lorenzo Quinn‘s “This Is Not A Game” is wanky comment on war as entertainment, but then the mini and the moped look like he’s just had a cool idea.

Anyway, I like it, and it reminds me of that brilliant Target toy sale display:
