ARMORY ARTS WEEK, PART DEUX

Yesterday was dedicated to the main Armory Arts Week event--the Fountain Art Fair  at the 69th Regiment Armory in Kips Bay. The Fountain Art Fair started in 2006 with the goal to expose smaller independent galleries, collectives & artists to a larger audience and community. Since it's beginning, it has now grown to showcasing works in NYC, Miami, Chicago & LA. 

The pictures below are just a highlight of some of my favorites pieces. There was an (almost) overwhelming amount of beautiful art there, but my reel is focused on New York themed art, street art and grafitti styles, and others that are my own personal style--in that order. Enjoy!! I didn't include all the artist's information but leave me a comment below if you'd like specifics!





The above picture is from the Street Wall at Rogue Space exhibit I went to yesterday--great to see even more of their work. 


Street Art & Graffiti-Esque Favorites:

& here are a few of my favorite things!! Elephants, Paris, skulls & glitter. :) 







Something else you should know about me in NYC is that I'm addicted to walking. The winter months obviously make this difficult/miserable, so yesterday feeling like the first day of Spring was amazing. I walked from my apartment on the Upper West Side to the art fair on 26th and Lexington, and then back home. I decided to say farewell to winter by wearing my absolute favorite coat--an oxblood faux fur from H&M. Actually, now that I think about it...my entire outfit is H&M except my shoes....which are from a ghetto boutique in Rego Park, Queens. They're so comfortable, and therefore perfect for long walks up, down, and across Manhattan. 





Thanks for another great weekend, New York!
