* Raleigh, North Carolina
is Cooler than DC *
... but am I surprised...? No.
witness the BARREL MONSTER !!!
is this not the coolest thing you've seen since... hmmm...
thinking.... thinking... t_h_i_n_k_i_n_g...
gawd DC is F*ing boring!
for more Raleighwood, North Cakalaki coolness check out
the Angry Man, by the same artist - who tags himself as
"you live and you burn".
have you noticed lately that all of a sudden
IRVINE CONTEMPORARY is DC's "street art" headquarters...?
does anyone other than me see that as an odd pairing?
in my opinion the Sheps & Daleks are sort of Lord & Tayloring
themselves by showing at Irvine. don't get me wrong,
i'm glad Irvine is in DC! they show some pretty awesome art, and
definitely take the gallery scene up a notch... but Irvine & street art?
what do you think EAGLE?
Raleigh has a great First Friday, gallery walk...
check it out... make a road trip of it...
NYC was *last weekend*... do something *different* for a change!
ROAD triiiiiiip !
