First Stop:8fff2c3ea24dd722778015a05bf860d3featuring works from f5fb4497b5b96a0be397601b4db0428e1Where do I even begin? Today was a mess, a good mess. A nice, ended up tipsy at the end of it all, laughing mess.  I was all over Brooklyn. I got out of work, as I usually do. (Ugh, I’m such an adult)

I met up with long time friend, and barely see each other, since we both have separate lives, and met while we were in an adult education continuing course, but haven’t seen each other in about a year or so, but kept in contact through social media  and it’s been long over due for a girly date Teshory, better known as Tess. That wasn’t too long was it?2How cute is she?

First stop was at Urban Folk Art© Studios at 101 Smith Street where both VFresh also known to graffiti writers as VFR and writer Trike were both displaying work and we were gonna be there for the Opening Reception.

This was the first show of the bunch, so we tried not to stay too long. The thing about art events is, they usually run around the same time frame 6pm and on, so after soaking in some well known graffiti and oohing and aaahing, especially  from this piece ↓. Yes, it may look much simpler than the others, but I appreciated the effect of shutter gates it made.

5It looked like someone removed a piece of the streets and decided to bring it indoors.4 6 7We hurried along to the F train and headed towards Marcy Ave. 8Second Stop:ec945c071a3925a936a868c2b490374aFeaturing works from 0c450e0af2967707b67fae3136e11d5b1at Bottleneck Gallery on 60 Broadway  to be exact. The gallery was a nice and clean. White walls, made you really look into the work, and they were all displayed so nicely. Not just thrown any where like I see many places do.  There was wine being served by O live, though I didn’t really get to try it. Which I regret a bit, since I never say no to wine. ( I vow to slowly but surely learn all there is to know about wine, in due time of course).

2“Traffacking Lights” by Pahnl was simple and adorable, I loved this trio. 3“Ice Queen” by Swoon  screen print, hand painting, coffee stains on mylar, nailed  to wood  with blockprint paper.4“And I Held My Breath” by Faile
5“Cry Of The Tiger” by Nicholas Forker 6Phetus is legendary for his characters and love of creatures and painted this canvas using acrylics titled “Bluetiful Monsters”7 “After The Storm” by David Welker 8This was one of Tess’s favorites titled “Fall in Love” by an unknown artist Qb1cA

She mentioned it reminded her of her mother and her love of tulips.9This brick has to be one of the cutest things ever painted by Rabea Senftenberg.

Imagine a whole house made by individualized bricks?  Every brick would have their own story. That would be amazing!
10“Blue Bunny” by Adam Dare 11“Dakini Wopreinderland: Sophia” by Kimyon Huggins was the eye catcher for this show. It was strategically placed so it’s the first piece of art once you walked inside, and why wouldn’t you see it, it was 84 inches tall. 12This piece by Priest was pretty damn dope, and only until I finally zoomed in on my camera was that I noticed what was going on in the front seat of this squad car.

No wonder this piece was titled “Blown Cover” 13“Napoleon”  a collaboration by Dot Dot Dot and Martin Whatson using both stencil and spray paint. 17 14“I Was A Widow” by Judith Supine
15“Little Wing, Pink and Blue” by Lacy Barry

♥ ♥ ♥”The Cage: A Woman of a Thousand Faces” by Sandra Chevrier was one of my favorites!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥  Do you see all the super heroines on her body?
16Third Stop:dc765fa7f1ee9952c39698d228e3dc46Presenting Work from Graffiti artist
click on me to go to Ozbe's website1Long time friend and very talented Ozbe was having an event of his own at small restaurant by the name of Burger it Up on 146 Knickerbocker Ave . We decided this would be our last stop of the night, since we knew almost everyone there and this was where the party was at.7After getting off on Myrtle Ave, we walked, walked and walked in the cold. I have no idea how Oz even found this place. It looked like we were headed nowhere but abandoned factories.2We decided it was time for some drinks and stopped at a liquor store to get a bottle of vodka and hit the store for some orange juice. Us and our ratchet little ways. We mixed while walking and felt warmer and funnier all at once.

Check out his Wutang canvas 3His Rustoleum inspired piece 4 5This piece looked like those mini puzzles I used to get in goody bags when I was a little kid.

Supposedly that was our last stop for the night, but we decided to take a walk for some fresh air.6Fourth Stop:29538d349232bff90b730756c9f7e9b8Presenting Work fromClick on me to see Jo Rigol's website1We bumped into this tiny hole in the wall shop, named Vinyl Fantasy on 194 Knickerbocker Ave, you guessed it, that sold vinyl records.

2Though we weren’t the best  customers due to our giggles and slurs. We loved the art that was displayed by Jo Rigol. Her skeleton beauties were so goth like, yet girly all at the same time with their huge puckered lips.3This was just my style and I wouldn’t mind having them posted up in my apartment. 4 5Finally, some pics of us right?

6 7 8We had a great night and ended up having a sleepover at my place.

Once we woke up,  we ended up staying in bed, stuffing our faces, being lazy and watching chick flicks until like 6pm. One which was one of my favorites, Penelope.9

10I love girly dates, talking about boys, laughing ad in our case, farts. hahhaha yes.

I’m so glad I got to spend this crazy day with Tess, dragging her around Brooklyn.

I hope you all enjoyed the art, as I know I did.

And to all the artist, Congratulations on your one step closer to success, wish you all the best… which reminds me, it’s been a while since I have painted. It’s time to pick up a paintbrush and get to work.11Until the next adventure my lovelies, minx
