Celso cutout on Wooster Street candy factory gate.
|At the end of the Wooster Walk, this guy whipped out a marker and added a bikini. I think this was rude and childish. But I’m getting comments on my Flickr posting that this is a form of tribute. These pieces are individually drawn, cutout and pasted by Celso.|
Another Celso woman. This one on Spring Street near Bowery.

The street art I found most interesting in 2008 was sometimes found in galleries.
#10 – LAII’s enhancement of the Haring Mural Recreation
I have heard that the Haring Foundation was not pleased, but these additions by an old Haring collaborator added a lot of life to the memorial.
C-Monster has more coverage.

New York City street artists Celso & infinity present A Maze, an exhibition and installation of work based on networks and passages. A gallery-sized, 7-foot-tall maze, constructed entirely out of original art, will immerse participants in a multidimensional environment designed to overwhelm the senses.
The work invites viewers to choose their path to a destination that, ultimately, is unknown. Random decisions have to be made at each artistic obstruction: Continue right or left? Go back and chose another route? The end result could offer great reward. Likewise, it could be a dead end. You choose.
The New York Times described their most recent collaboration, Post No Bills, a street art gallery in Long Island City as “Audacious.” The new show also features work by mysterious street art shaman Stikman, graffiti artist LA II (Little Angel Ortiz, a protégé and collaborator with street art legend Keith Haring) and also introduces the graceful and intricate art of Cbeauty.
A Maze is a site specific installation made for Factory Fresh that is curated and conceived by Celso and infinity in an attempt to better understand the challenges presented by working in an ever changing artistic landscape. (more…)
