I wasn’t able to see Free Humanity’s phone booth takeovers featuring Notorious BIG and Tupac before they were vandalized, sadly, but I think you’ll still be able to get the gist.

"Salvaged Perspective" by J Carlos Pinto. Now showing at Phantom Audio in NYC

Frankie Velez presents a must see exhibit by Guatamalan artist J Carlos Pinto.  Entitled “Salvaged Perspective,” Pinto has made collages out of pieces of New York subway Metrocards.  The detail of each work is incredible and the exhibit has dozens of works in every size.  Subjects range from the Mona Lisa to Barack Obama!  You’ll see these icons as you never have before and I know you’ll be wowed.  I’ve seen a few pieces of J Carlos Pinto’s work before but this was my first experience of seeing a full exhibit and it is incredible!   He’s extremely prolific and you’ll definitely find yourself wondering how he makes these works of art.

 Spotted in the crowd at the opening night gala reception were artists Wonder Lee, Eric Eyeball Richardson, Fumero, Gigi Chen and Sienide.  I was fortunate enough to talk to J Carlos Pinto and he was very nice and approachable.  You can see a photo of that after the jump.

“Salvaged Perspective” by J Carlos Pinto is now showing at Phantom Audio, located at 48 West 25th Street, 10th Floor in Manhattan.  The exhibit will be showing until the end of May, 2011 so don’t miss it!

Catch The Beat

'Catch the Beat' The Roots of Punk and Hip Hop Photographs by Janette Beckman & David Corio. Showing at Morrison Hotel Gallery in NYC through March 2011.

If you are a fan of the punk and hip-hop scene, you’ll definitely want to head over to the Morrison Hotel Gallery to check out their latest exhibition  ‘Catch the Beat’ The Roots of Punk and Hip Hop Photographs by Janette Beckman & David Corio.  Though viewing punk and hip-hop images together seems at first like an odd combination, both styles of music raised the bar a lot higher and seeing these images together will help viewers to realize how important Punk and Hip Hop are to the history of music and photography.
