Artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh created an ongoing public art series that actively addresses the issue of gender harassment.
Bansky New York’s residency is generating a lot of conversations and apparently money to some residents of East New York. The neighborhood is known for it’s violence and gang related problems and Banksy’s piece is giving it a lot of attention. The residents of that area are not very happy about all the “people that don’t belong there” coming to take a peek at the stencil beaver and are being forewarned that they might get robbed. I’m not sure if anyone cares enough about a stencil beaver to go through that amount of problem, but what do I know.
Artist Pedro Reyes is the sculptor behind the project.
Pedro Reyes creates second generation instruments from dismantled guns. With a team of musicians and new media studio, Cocolab, Reyes has made mechanized instruments from these one-time harmful weapons.
