Hello Moonbird. Joan Miro’s ‘Moonbird’ 1966 based on an original sculpture from the 1940’s ‘Oiseau Lunaire’. A great fantasy bird! In front of the impressive curved Solow Building designed by Gordon Bunshaft of SOM 1974 #juanmiro #miro #moonbird #oiseaulunaire #solowbuilding #robertsolow #9west57thstreet #sculpture #publicart #art #manhattan #newyork #gordonbunshaft #som #skyscraper
My front bike wheel was stolen off my bike in my basement, and this is me coming to terms with it.

W57th St, NYC. 2010. From the first time I was in New York just around Thanksgivings,2006 - came across this crazy skyscraper sloping up to the sky. The Solow. My painting has black felt for the sky as I couldn’t get that velvet darkness using acrylics which make up the rest of the image. There’s poured on white gloss though for the Christmas street lights.#nyc #57th #solowbuilding #aengusmakesart #artofnewyork #artofnewyorkcity #art #artist #artistsoninstagram

Back to NYC. Passed this many times until it dawned on me that it was actually the number of the building, 9 West 57th St. Sometimes if takes me a while. Took this a few Christmases ago. “The Red 9” by graphic artist Ivan Chermayeff sits outside the Solow Building which has a slight curve to its facade. I kind of love the unexpected shape but when it was built there were complaints that it reflected the less appealing sides of the older buildings nearby. So this was commissioned to distract pedestrians...(it’s where the shoe store 9 West got its name). #newyork #newyorkcity #manhattan #thered9 #sculpture #publicart #ivanchermayeff #solowbuilding #americanarchitecture #curvedfacade #mirrored #pedestrians #christmasinnewyork #westside #urbanlandscape #jonscottblanthorn

Inception. * W.R. #GraceBuilding Every lunch I walk by this beauty and today I finally decided to take some pictures. The tricky angle of the concave slopes of the facade reminded me #InceptionMovie where city was folding in front of Leonardo Dicaprio eyes. Some interesting facts about Grace Building: - It was built for Grace Chemical company by Russian Jewish architect Gordon Bunshaft in 1974. - It looks very similar to another Bunshaft creation on 57th Street: #SolowBuilding . I always suspected that buildings were related, but today I have a proof. I learned that the architect used rejected Solow Building plans for the Grace. - White travertine is used in building plaza, facades and sidewalks. Travertine creates very nice contrast with black windows. Gordon also used travertine for his personal home that as far as I understood was ruined by Martha Stewart 🙄 . . #42street #gracebuilding #grandcentral #grandcentralstation #chryslerbuilding #metlifebuilding #nyc #stonejungle #grandcentralterminal . #newyork #ig_nyc #newyorkcity #manhattan #lunchwalk #architecture #icapture_nyc #ilovenyc #travelnyc #nycprimeshot #what_i_saw_in_nyc #nycstreets
