Lucky in New York

Posted on November 20, 2018

Back when we began this BSA journey we used to tell people we felt lucky to be in New York and to witness the birth of a new Street Art movement here and to walk the streets discovering people, fashion, architecture, and Street Art like Walt Whitman taking a walk through Leaves of Grass.

Happily we’re still saying it, with total conviction.

Serendipity happens again here as we discover a new painter, a new style of painting on the street. It recalls the illustrations on commercial greeting cards and children’s story books from the 1960s and 1970s perhaps; a blushing bashful blundering bushel of big-eyed bliss bisecting the blond head of a slumbering beauty. It’s all Bambi and Mary Poppins up in here.

For the quote you have to go back to the 1860s and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

“I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”

Is their more that we need to know? The artist, maybe? No, they say never meet your heroes.

Getting back on the bike, we still feel lucky.
