Faring Purth is taking this one lying down in Westville, New Haven Connecticut on a long wall with Marielle. The 150 x 12 foot figure featured in “As in the Light of Marielle” was just completed and feted with an evening celebration that featured light artist Raven Fox, whom Faring says provided “breathtaking illuminations” overlaying her painted figure.
Stretching luxuriously from fingertip to pointed toe along the length of a parking lot in a lushly greened neighborhood, the wall was completed as a result of of Farings’ involvement with a local community arts group, the Westville Village Renaissance Alliance.
Seeing the slumber of Marielle and her heavily lidded eyes, we are reminded of this Shakespeare Sonnet XXVII
Jeremy Novy first got into street art in high school as a way to spend more time with the cute break dancers and graffiti boys; today he is one of San Francisco’s eminent queer street artists, using his creations to pay homage to the city’s gay history. Novy’s art also serves to combat the homophobia and misogyny too often present in street art culture. With his exhibit, “History of Queer Street Art”, Jeremy Novy showcases beautiful and subversive examples of queer street art from around the world. Join him for an opening lecture in the Trumbull gallery on Thursday April 25th at 3pm. Prints and stickers will be available for purchase (cash-only)!

Street Art Tribute to Steve Jobs on Bond Street in Manhattan
A poorly shot little video of this lenticular tribute to Steve Jobs, but you get the idea. Yesterday there were many tributes to the founder of Apple in front of the Apple stores in Manhattan, as many people were clearly affected by the creative genius of the guy over the last 3 decades. Our thoughts go to his family and friends.
