kaNO – Five Points Festival Mural In Progress

kaNO_rivington-1

kaNO is back in NYC to work on a towering 40-foot mural on the Lower East Side for the inaugural Five Points Festival.  Curated and organized by the folks at The L.I.S.A. Project, a non-profit working to promote street murals in the Little Italy NYC neighborhood. His largest mural to-date, the mural features an urban hero, sporting a vest + cap and wielding GoD nunchucks.  Props to kaNO on the epic project and for this sweet shot taken at the end of Tuesday’s session. 

If you’re in the area, drop by the mural at 79 Rivingston St. to catch kaNO in action.  He will be working on the wall through Thursday into Friday.

Sergey Safonov – Preview of ‘Birds of Moscow’ (5.18)

afisha-sketch

Over the past  several months, Sergey Safonov has been posting tantalizing photos of his hand-crafted wood bird figures, some of which include blown glass elements.  We’ve been admiring them from afar and wondering how/when they would be shown/released.  Turns out Sergey will be showing them at his Birds of Moscow exhibition which opens in Moscow this Thursday (5.18).

The birds have a refined, old world feel, sophisticated yet down to earth.  They sport stylish hats and seem to have a sense of purpose—perhaps that’s due in part to their pointed beaks.  At any rate, the new collection is impressive. Hit the jump for a preview of select pieces.

After the show, we believe the remaining pieces will be available online.  As part of his intention to have the show travel around the globe, he’ll be showing two of the pieces for Toymakers of Planet Earth in June at Circus Posterous.

Those little Birds of Moscow are always in a hurry. Wherever they fly, they take this city with them, sometimes cantankerously shrieking, other times softly tweeting. Their tiny beaks are snapping, the golden caps, floating. Birdies can’t stand one another, yet their chirping hearts beat in unison. White flickers, ooze and concrete, sweet marble curls… The little birds of Moscow softly and elegantly walk among us. They look only upwards and crumble this city under their feet. Ash and coal. Birds of Moscow are watchfully looking from everywhere, waiting for the continuation of old stories. And lonely laughter in the silence.
