Graffiti

I was pissed when New York City tried to put a lockdown on the sale of markers to anyone under 21. WTF?! When I was an art student, I can honestly say that it was pure hell trying to get supplies for class. What do you tell your professor when you can’t spray paint your prototype for presentations? There should be a provision that allows for students to get what they need without being hassled by the clerks at Pearl. That said, this weekend I am going to make it my duty to see:

“Graffiti”
“An exhibition of twenty large-scale graffiti paintings from such influential artists as Michael Tracy (“Tracy 168”), Melvin Samuels, Jr. (“NOC 167”), Sandra Fabara (“Lady Pink”), Chris Ellis (“Daze”), and John Matos (“Crash”), Graffiti explores how a genre that began as a form of subversive public communication has become legitimate—moving away from the street and into private collections and galleries.”
At the Brooklyn Museum through Sept. 3rd.
200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Ave. Take the 2 or 3 to Brooklyn Museum stop.
Visit the Brooklyn Museum Website

Yes, yes, I know graffiti is illegal,and that’s why the pols are putting in all these rules in the first place. But you can’t deny that graffiti has played an interesting part in the artistic and political history of New York. (If you get a chance, read Malcolm Gladwells theory on the influence of graffiti on city crime in his New York Times bestseller “The Tipping Point”.

Summertime Scents

I’m not too big on fragrances. When I was little I remember having awful memories of my mom bringing me to the Macy’s Herald Square fragrance department. We would stay there for what seemed like hours, and each time, the experience nauseated me. I tried to pretend that I was having fun, but really, I just wanted to escape!
Now in adulthood, I’ve struggled to come by a fragrance that is light enough, and not too perfum-y. I’d settled on natural oils until I came across Fresh Index. My favorite: Fig Apricot. It is so light and refreshingly sweet, and the scent lingers for hours, without any harsh after-effects. My boyfriend always sleeps with his head face-down in the pillow, so he can smell me when I’m gone! And it doesn’t cling to his clothes, but every now and then a draft will keep the aroma drifting in the (often stuffy)air.

Another favorite? Well, it’s not actually meant for your body–it’s actually a hair shine oil from Marc Jacobs. I’ve been spritzing it’s tropical coconut scent all over for a while now, and I haven’t experienced any unusual side effects on my skin… It’s $35 dollars at any Marc Jacobs store.

Sarah Chiat

Have you ever had a classmate that was so talented, she disgusted you? When I was a sophmore at Parson’s I had initially thought that I would come out as a black Phillipe Stark. Well, my future in product design never panned out as planned, but I got to meet some incredible designers along the way. One of them was ceramic artist Sarah Chiat. (pronounced “Sigh-Hat”) Any project she created turned out to be certified platinum.
