New York based, Japanese photographer/artist Shinichi Maruyama has released his latest series of work, Gardens.
Photographing paint, mid air in an attempt to replicate the aesthetic found in Zen gardens he has created a stunning series of pieces. Which while he humbly insists that he is “far” from the mark none the less manages to encapsule the true spirit of the aesthetic, that in many ways surpasses the original. At least in my opinion.
“I have tried to represent this feeling I get from Zen gardens in my artwork. Although I am still far from those enlightened monks who labor in nature, my actions of repeatedly throwing liquid into the air and photographing the resulting shapes and sculptural formations over and over-endlessly-could be considered a form of spiritual practice to find personal enlightenment.” – Shinichi Maruyama.
See the rest of the series here on Shinichi’s site. Or head to Bruce Silverstien NYC, tomorrow night at 6pm to see it in person.

Dope project by Workhorse and PAC. Over 90 artists each taken down to an abandoned New York subway station and given one night to paint, once finished the whole thing is photographed and resealed, left for explorers of the future and the occasional transit cop patrol.

With “Joan of Arc,” at a warehouse along the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, the graffiti collective Slavery is paying homage to a 1980 work that read “Hand of Doom.”
I’m pretty excited that these are starting to pop up around NYC.
I don’t often get this transparent, but this weekend that just rolled past was one of a kind. I Rocked the Bells with Lauryn Hill, Wu-Tang and Snoop Dogg (as well as Rakim, KRS1, Slick Rick, MURS, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes and the list goes on), bombed NoLita, ate (amazing) tacos, and finished off the weekend with a beer over looking the Manhattan skyline. Pretty dope. So long, summer – it’s been real!
When y’all coming to visit?!
Os Gemeos and Futura have completed an 80-foot mural at Chelsea’s PS 11. I strolled by over the weekend to a closed gate, but managed to fire off some shots from through the fence. There are lots of shots on the web, but here’s my addition.
Out again at 5 Pointz, Queens, NYC.
