Stunt Loving Supine Slithers Up Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge

Stunt Loving Supine Slithers Up Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge

Look who’s rolling up the East River; it’s Judith Supine completing yet another night time feat of foolhardy urban exploration with a bridge-based installation for one of the green skinned ladies s/he is known for on Brooklyn streets.

Probably seeking one of the last places in New York where you can still smoke a cigarette, we see one of Supine’s new ladies puffing away and staring blankly while nursing a cocktail above the traffic streaming across the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan.

Already known for hanging a piece off the Manhattan Bridge in ’07 and on top of The Williamsburg Bridge in ’09, at this rate if he keeps heading in a northward direction we estimate the Street Artist should be on the new Tappan Zee when it opens in 2018.

Photographer Steve Duncan took these pics which appear to show the perch from Judith’s perspective, and we just saw a video of it on the website Arrested Motion that was posted Saturday, so there you go, the artist loves the river view.

We shouldn’t be surprised by his aquatic attraction since one of his child-women was previously seen wading below the pedestrian bridge in Central Park and he once styled his dear old dad in a ladies swimsuit and floated him off Grand Street Park in Williamsburg (see video below).

Wrinkles in L.A.? Street Artist JR Brings His.

French Street Artist JR is in Los Angeles for a few weeks to wheat-paste twenty or more murals from “Wrinkles in the City”, a black and white portrait series featuring colossal visages of the mature angels in this city.

In a metropolis that famously avoids wrinkles, whether celluloid hero or not, plastering enormous creased and cratered kissers across architectural facades and rooftops is tantamount to vandalism.  All of this seems perfect for the 28 year old former graffeur from Paris, who won the 2011 TED prize and who has previously installed portions of this project in Shanghai and Cartegena.

Intended to be visible from streets and freeways, the series continues the Street Artists’ previous work; photographs that pay gentle tribute to the daily lives of citizens, elevating the “everyday” to an outsized scale normally reserved for celebrity and sales.

LA-based BSA collaborator and enormously talented photographer Todd Mazer has captured some of JR’s recent installations here exclusively for you.
