IF YOU CAN’T LEAVE YOUR MARK GIVE UP ❌⭕️❌🚫 Yours truly first discovered Jenny Holzers “Truisms” around 1979, when an eight-year-old me saw dozens—perhaps hundreds—of copies of the complete list pasted on boarded-up buildings, light posts, and dumpsters all over the streets of lower Manhattan. My parents would take me on biannual pilgrimages to see art at the Soho galleries and visit artist studios up and down the Bowery. Just a few years later we went to Times Square and looked up—only to see the above quote in gigantic flashing lights. Yours truly has been obsessing about and making street art ever since. ❌⭕️‼️ #jennyholzer #truisms #streetart #graffiti #vandalism #fineart #politicalart #newyork #soho #bowery 🔺♦️🔻♦️🔺 Shown here: Another themed selection by yours truly from the #dcstreetstickerexpo 4.0 by @iwillnotart 🔈🔉🔊 On view now through December 31 at @thefridgedc Gallery in Washington DC.

A FEW WEEKS BACK @elleusa HAD A PHOTOSHOOT WITH 27 NEWLY-ELECTED CONGRESSWOMEN AT THE FRIDGE @thefridgedc s/o to @laurenwbrown for choosing #thefridgedc 📷📷📷📷📷📸 #Repost @laurenwbrown ・・・ A WOMAN’S PLACE IS IN THE HOUSE (of Representatives)! I’m beyond stoked to share a shoot that I recently produced for Elle Magazine @elleusa , with the talented photog @christelle_studio and AD @katelynmbaker. We all had the pleasure of meeting 27 Congresswomen newly elected to the House of Representatives during their orientation week. To be in the presence of history is humbling to say the least! So proud of these women! @ocasio2018 @laurenaunderwood @abby4iowa @senatorsylvia @ayannapressley @ilhanmn @haleystevensforcongress @mikiesherrill @katiehillforcongress @realjahanahayes @elissa_slotkin @jenniferwexton @chrissyhoulahan @donna_shalala @rashidatlaib @wildforcongress @debbieforfl @scanlonforcongress @loriforuscongress @vgescobar915 @shariceforcongress @abigailspanberger @deb4congressnm @drkimschrier @kendrahornforcongress @lizzieforcongress #ElaineLuria
#fbf NOSTALGIA IS BIG BUSINESS 🥁🥁🥁 Shown here: “Travis” by @decoydc from the artists second solo show in summer 2010 at @thefridgedc is back at the gallery for a visit. Below is a piece by @maurajudkis for @washingtoncitypaper — at the opening night event, at least six people signed up for & got tattoos of a decoy design live and on stage during the opening reception #RIPyas including @gowithglo and @relaxdc 🚚🚛🚚 "Decoy: Ink" at the Fridge Through July 15 MAURA JUDKIS @maurajudkis JUN 25, 2010 Decoy’s stature among D.C. street artists has become nearly as indelible as the ink of her numerous tattoos. But “Decoy: Ink” feels less personal than her previous exhibition at the Fridge, which focused on her religious upbringing and referenced historical iconography. Though some images in “Ink” hint at the artist’s tattoo-filled personal narrative, many are homages to other famous inked-up people: sideshow legend Betty Broadbent, blink-182’s Travis Barker, Found magazine editor Davy Rothbart. The best work, however, is the most personal—to the viewer, that is, not to the artist: Visitors can adorn themselves with Decoy’s work via press-on temporary tattoos (realistic enough to fool your boss and scare your parents!). Decoy has moved beyond tagging buildings—now she’s tagging people, too.
