Gallery Mondays: Cernesto’s Pabst Goddess

cernesto, pabst, goddess

It’s such a nice day out in New York, especially for what’s supposed to be 93 degree weather, so Gallery Mondays is headed to the outdoors this week.

I found this lovely goddess on Beford and N 8th in Brooklyn about two months ago. She’s holding Pabst Blue Ribbon beers in three of her four arms, and I think she’s holding a fourth with her foot.

Impressive.

I’m not sure if it’s accurate to call her a Pabst goddess because here she is again here sans the Pabst.

The mural was done by Cernesto, who paints a lot of murals with this pinkish-purple aura. After looking him up online I kind of want to go find all of the murals he’s painted in the U.S. and abroad.

Gallery Mondays: RPGA Studio’s “Mudslide” Mural

63 drive street art

On Friday I was taking a nice stroll down 63rd Drive in Queens, headed towards Rego Park Mall when I saw this mural below the Long Island Railroad underpass between Alderton and Austin Street.

The mural is called “Mudslide” and it was painted by RPGA Studios as a project by Rego Park Green Alliance.

“Mudslide” is painted in primary colors, adding a touch of childlike fun to the birds flying eastward. I just love the girl floating away with the umbrella. It sounds kind of cruel to enjoy the fact that she’s being whisked away with the wind, but there’s something blissful about being able to float away without a care in the world.
