Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL’s Pet Dragon

urbanimal truck art

I’ve had this pic sitting in my phone for a few month’s now. I felt it was time to unleash the dragon in this graffiti by URBANIMAL.

I saw this piece on a truck on the corner of West 37th and 8th Ave, and I immediately knew it was by URBANIMAL because of the way the eyes on the characters are depicted and the fact that his art is all over trucks in Midtown West. I love the vibrant color.

For some reason, the woman in the piece looks a little bit like Gayle from Bob’s Burgers. Is it just me? Also, is she holding that dragon by pink bejeweled reins?!

Gallery Mondays: ‘Shadows & Substance’ by Marcia Haufrecht

Shadows & Substance | Marcia Haufrecht chashama 266

I was walking by Chashama 266 in Midtown West last month when I saw these really great paintings. I loved the summer vibes I got from them so I snapped a pic from the other side of the glass door.

I really need to make an appointment to see one of Chashama 266’s exhibits at some point!

Anyway, these were part of Marcia Haufrecht’s Shadows & Substance exhibit. It reminded me of all the Q53 bus rides I’m not going to miss this summer because I moved out of Queens. Therefore, I no longer have to board a crowded bus full of beach-goers.

Why does anyone want to go to the beach in this scorching heat anyway? The sand is going to burn you!

Be smart like the two in the painting on the far right and visit a lake instead.
