retiro park

Sooo at Retiro Park there , exists the only depiction of the devil that is actually a public art work, it presents the devil when he has first fallen from heaven down to earth and i guess is going down to hell, i dont know the stroy that well, but what i do know is that the work is awsome and i think anyone who visits Spain should make a trip down to the park to see it, im having SOME TECH DIFF. SO I WILL POST A PHOTO WHEN I THE WEBSITE LETS ME...ADIOS

Kristen Ferrell

her art work shows duality , the images that exist amongst each other are not often seen and it speakes to experiences and personal issues that the artist has gone through, i think that i can most identify with this type of work, becuase it

F.Y.I******* this is abc no rio, couldnt get the picture to upload last time i posted... so without further delay ...

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< thats it (before it changed,again)


abc was a former squat and is one of the 12 that was purchased from NYC in the 80's when the whole struggle for squatter rights was going on , much before the lower east side was a place that people wanted to live and invest in, but any who. its an art center and a place where artists can create and come together and commence a discourse, hopefully it kinda retains that a lil bit...

This is a video that i took of a band in spain. There was a show in a squat where socially minded people decided to come together and play punk music. There were cd's, shirts and zines that they sold and it gave it a D.I.Y feel, it was refreshing to go to this type os show considering that the energy and the dynamic is rare to come by. The bassist was from San Fran, was hit by a car and got 4,000 out of the deal, she decided to travel to spain with the money, and she never has gone back to the United States, that was seven years ago, i thought that was awesome, to just pick up and go with your feelings at any given moment.. i think thats how life should be lived...

5Pointz is in Queens off of the 7 train and is close by P.S 1, its a factory building that has the artwork of various graffti artists

I went to my old Neighborhood in Brooklyn and was walking around went to fort green park where i use to hang out with my dog, some of the same graffti were still there and it made me think of graffti as an art form and as an extension of the artist, i found this particular statment to be intersting ---check it out-- this is in amsterdam

The Images below are By the artist Fernando Botero and his interpertation of how the prisoners were treated by U.S soliders at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, i find the images to be emtionally intense and opens another dimension that the actual photos of the ocurrances did not, and act more as documentation

The website to see view the Latte Art from Coffee Labs loacted out of Tarrytown New York , is as follows : But here are a few images that i thought were cool to look at and gives me something to try to create when im at work making Lattes for angry soccer moms

WHat I am attempting to due is post images that i found on the Latte Art that i talked about the other day. What i am finding is that when i click on the little image square in the upper right to "add image" it doesnt bloody well do it. SOOOOOOOOOOoooo im going to describe the images made with steamed milk and later on when the computer hic up is done i will be adding the images....

the first image is of a skull and cross bones, with details talking eyes ,mouth and nose

the rest are just designs like hearts and things of that nature

Below are some images that i found on the website that i found cool

Art Encounter Now

So this place will be a space where i talk about my experiences with art and everyday encounters with different Mediums of Art. This is a place where i can be free to discuss my art the art of friends and the artworks that i come in contact with..... For instance one of my jobs is a barista... so when im not in class 40 hours out of the week im making lattes and cappacuuinos. Well to kill time at work i try to make it intersting by avoiding looking at the clock and looking up useless information about coffee and what im dealing with on the job.... One of the coffees that is sold at my place of employment is CoffeeLabs its a locally owned bussiness thats loacted in Tarrytown... one day i was at work and decided that i should look up their website and was introduced for the first time to LATTE Art... something that i had no bloody clue about before... making art with steamed milk and esspresso is actually (if done by the right person) badass.

The Latte Artist that i discovered is Mike Love the owner of COffee LAbs... well posted on the website are examples of the different types of Latte Art and thought it was pretty sweet... so now when im at work and im making a Latte i will make designs with the milk .... I even found out that theres annual Latte Art compations
