ESPO’s Art World

Located in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn is ESPO’s Art World, an art studio and gallery owned by artist Stephen Powers. Powers began his career writing graffiti as “ESPO” throughout the streets of Philadelphia and New York. In 2000, he stepped away from graffiti to focus on art full time and has since become a well-established mural artist and sign painter, showing his work around the world. His bright and friendly shop in Brooklyn is full of his colorful hand-painted signage, inside and out. Head over to check out his work and pick up some prints, tees, bags and even vinyl while you’re there.

Mark Ryden: The Art of Whipped Cream

Presented by the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City, Mark Ryden’s latest exhibition “The Art of Whipped Cream” featured original sketches, drawings and paintings he created for the American Ballet Theater’s production “Whipped Cream” by Alexei Ratmansky. As a creative visionary behind the production, Ryden dreamt up it’s sets, backdrops, props and costumes in his whimsy, magical style. The ballet was held at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House and coincided with the exhibition. We were lucky enough to attend the ballet and see the final days of the exhibit. Below are some shots from both.

“Paris Refashioned, 1957-1968” recently opened at The Museum at FIT.  The exhibition features a mix of over 100 creations from designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Coco Chanel, Pierre Cardin, and Cristobal Balenciaga.  It begins with impeccably tailored couture pieces from the late 1950s and moves through the fashion-forward and innovative ready-to-wear pieces of the 1960s.  The show highlights the significant impact ready-to-wear had on the Parisian couture industry at that time.

Below is a collage of photos we took at the show.  More information can be found here: https://www.fitnyc.edu/museum/exhibitions/paris-refashioned.php
