Idiots and Angels

Bill Plympton’s latest feature, Idiots and Angels, opens Wednesday (October 6th) at the IFC Center in New York and will run for a week. Go!

Os Gemeos & Futura

Last year I posted about a mural on Bowery & Houston painted by Os Gemeos. Unfortunately, that mural was recently redone (a fact that I was 100% not ready for.) Luckily, Os Gemeos is at it again. For anyone in New York, the mural above is located in the New York schoolyard of Public School 11 (map courtesy of My Love For You) It was a collaboration between Os Gemeos and street artist Futura, and it looks incredible.

Bill Plympton

“Idiots and Angels”, Bill Plympton’s new feature (!), is being released this October. Better yet, there is a screening at the IFC Center on October 6th. Everybody should go (very much a demand.)

Visit the official website (there are lots of video clips) or his blog for more information.

William Kentridge

For anyone in New York (or for anyone visiting New York before May 17) I strongly recommend William Kentridge’s exhibition at the MOMA. The work displayed ranges from his charcoal drawings and animations to his drawings and plans for opera and theater. Click here for more information.

Bowery & Houston

This is the new mural at the intersection of Bowery and Houston by Os Gemeos. It is yet ANOTHER thing that reminds me of A Child’s Metaphysics by Koji Yamamura (that animation that I want to post so very badly…) It is also yet another thing that I love a lot.

Click to enlarge pictures – they’re much better that way, and then zoom in because it gets even better. Keep reading for close-ups!
