This Williamsburg t shirt company, founded by fine artists Justin Horowitz and Joe Bklyn, is still in its larval state. But if it pans out anything like their other work, it should make for some amazing products. They also just happened to do the covers for two of our projects. Their work is always on point.
75 colored pencil drawings by Mike Rogers recently exhibited at the impressive Parker’s Box Gallery in Williamsburg. The work documented all of the nuclear power plants in various locations throughout the United States. An ambitious obsession with primary color coded repetition, depicting complex landscapes in simplistic Christmas Card fashion. The individual pieces are small, delicate, […]
The Art Pop Up Shop (TAPS) is the latest swank space in Williamsburg which turned heads and hearts with work from Ellen Jong’s book titled Pees on Earth by powerHouse Books. The piece Cocktail might leave a bad taste [photo above]. Be careful. This work is dedicated. Coco Dolle is the Director at TAPS, which […]
Wandering aimlessly around Williamsburg the other night I stumbled across a garage that had been converted into a mini-venue. A classic Brooklyn makeshift space. A heavy wooded table was strewn with roasted peanuts and cheap beer and whisky. People were loose to the Blue Grass band. A slice of mountain Hicksville in an industrial street […]
My new solo exhibition is on view from now until October 2 at Causey Contemporary in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The show will feature BAR 1-9, a massive, 32 foot long abstract mural in blood and resin; a 16 foot tall work of blood-soaked gauze preserved on plexiglass; a series created with outdoor sun-drying techniques of the […]
It’s hip to be a nerd, at least in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, home of the awesome Twenty Sided Store. Focusing on board games, Magic: the Gathering, and RPGs, the store hosts gaming nights sure to make your geek toes curl.
Ladies and gentlemen of the (Williamsburg) jury, we have some news that’ll cheer up your morning latte. UseHipster are hiring, and they’re offering a barrage of perks to help find the right people. Kinda like the Hipster Trap, but without the nasty bite.
The Idea behind my recent show, Exhibit B, was simple: I really wanted to pay homage to Guy Bourdin while putting my own spin on what he’s done and how he’s influenced and inspired me. I think we share a similar sense of humor.
This captivating tattoo was on the back of the girl in front of me while was standing in the short queue at the Williamsburg coffee shop Oslo on Saturday. It’s a nice motto to carry through these balmy months in New York.
Many summers past, when my hair was longer and my waistline slimmer, I became the unofficial trainer for an aspiring whistler, who just happened to be one of my housemates in the spacious Williamsburg loft I was living in. He since went on to place twelfth in the annual World Whistling Convention last year, and […]
When I first moved to New York in 2006, I lived in a shared loft space in Williamsburg with four others. It was quite an introduction to inner-city living, especially given that I’d literally shifted across from the beaches and sunshine of Bondi, Sydney. As such, it was a dizzying period, full of discovery. Rufus […]
On those rare occasions when I feel the need to treat myself to an absolutely mind (and wallet) blowing meal, I love to come here. The restaurant is housed in an old diner (the old trailer style diners) which makes for some fun ambiance. Plus, the menu changes every week, so there’s never a written […]
For anyone living in the Williamsburg, Brooklyn area, you may already be familiar with Maho Kino’s passel of peanuts engaged in everything from ballet to riding dogs to playing the congas. Kino’s peanuts appear on a range of items including her beautiful etchings and her kitschy tea sets. What’s not to like about these peanuts?
Summertime at McCarren Park in Williamsburg is picturesque. It’s often filled with a mix of people, old and young, picnicking or sitting in the shade, running along the track or playing soccer (or football, depending on where you’re from). It’s also connected to a now defunct McCarren (swimming) pool which transforms into an outdoor concert space on Sundays during the summer. In the past, performers such as Leslie Feist, M.I.A., The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Broken Social Scene have performed.
Disregard the buzz that surrounds those other cupcake shops in New York City. Cheeks Bakery in Williamsburg houses the best cupcakes that I’ve eaten. The clean and understated decor extends to the menu, where being fancy doesn’t rule on the cupcake shelves. Cheeks offers, simply, vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with either vanilla or chocolate cream. […]
