So this started as a quest for gelato. The Il Laboratorio del Gelato on Houston the ultimate destination. (They have the most amazing flavors-today I had yellow watermelon and peach, the son malt and mango. The malt is just like the inside of a whopper.)
What is the stumble on? Well, I had a wild hair and decided instead of the normal get off the 6 at Bleeker, we would get off at Spring and walk back up to Houston along Bowery. I always like to go past the corner of Spring and Bowery so I can say hello to Quanah one of my favorite pieces of street art by one of my favorite Artists, Dylan Egon. You might remember I did a posting on his opening at the Jonathan Levine Gallery a while back.
Back to the stumble on… walking down Spring Street we were suddenly assaulted with the unmistakable smell of spray paint coming from a small gallery, gallery nine5. Group Ink is their current show which features work by several different Graffiti Artists.
Got to watch Vor138 at work.
The show also includes work by Alan Ket
and Bisco Smith
Also got to see one of my favorites at work, Shiro One.
A great discovery and I can’t wait to go back and see the finished pieces. And Quanah greeted me as always right there at Jay Maisel’s place.
So, next time then…
