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.
