Brooklyn artists Doug and Mike Starn have recently completed See It Split, See It Change, a 250 foot-long wall of fused glass panels and mosaic that curves along the walls of the new South Ferry subway station in New York. The $1.5 million installation looks stunning in pictures with its luminescent glass tiles and an especially nice looking mosaic made from a topographic map drawn in 1640.

Poster Boy NYC Arrested?

February 5th, 2009 by Jeff | 0

It looks like NYC street artist Poster Boy NYC was arrested last weekend by a group of plainclothes policemen at a gallery event in SoHo. He’s the guy who uses a razor blade to remix and reuse NYC subway poster ads. Although someone who was previously identified as Poster Boy in New York Magazine insists that Henry Matyjewicz, the Bushwick resident arrested Friday night, was merely a stand-in and that Poster Boy is more a movement than an individual. Either way, take a look at some great Poster Boy subway ad remixes and spend some time riding the rails with him. Or catch more from Friends We Love.
