NYC art inspiration
The Prow art Studio space at the front corner of the triangular Flatiron building. Sponsored by Sprint with an emphasis on eco-friendly living, technology and interaction. The display while we were there included an overhead cascading red paper “sail” with cut out details and a paper creation of the Brooklyn Bridge with mini-red statues of Liberty. Lots of paper-byproduct and up-cycling.
Michaelalbert.com for Modern Pop art. His recent style includes cereal box collages with iconic snips and tips like “No gluing until you know what you are doing.” He is also a published author “Artists America” available globally. And to fuel the fire of creativity he is an entrepreneur for organic product development with fruit juice… “Sir Real” which includes his art on the packaging. My heart goes “pitty patter” (my words). Micheal’s extra large glossy post cards were available for free at our hotel, Gershwin. Nice promo.
Architecture: Buildings along Lexington Ave and of course Grand Central Station. The Chanin Building at 122 Lexington Ave with its incredible deco styling and bas relief details in what looked like copper. The famous Flatiron building in the Flatiron District near the old tinpan alley.
