New York!  You have one more day to check out a very unique art show.  M.A.N.Y. (Murals Around New York) and the street art site Vandalog have put on a four day only pop up show – in an apartment!  The show is entitled “Up Close and Personal” and you can get up close and personal with the works of some of the hottest street artists in the world.  The show features Aiko, Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Don Leicht, Edible Genius, Elbowtoe, Gaia, How & Nosm, Jessica Angel, John Fekner, Know Hope, Logan Hicks, Mike Ballard, OverUnder, R. Robot, Radical, Retna, Skewville, Tristan Eaton, Troy Lovegates aka Other and White Cocoa.



Up Close and Personal opens May 12th from 7-9pm. It will also be open from 7-9pm on the 13th; noon-9pm and noon-7pm on the 14th and 15th respectively.   The show is taking place at 217 West 106th Street, Apartment 1A, in New York– Between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues.  I’ve been a big fan of Vandalog for a while and it was really cool to have a chance to speak with RJ Rushmore who runs the site.  As you can expect, he is an encyclopedia of street art and was more than happy to chat with me about our mutual love for the genre.



The show closes on May 15, 2011, so you only have one more day to check it out. 

See some works by Elbow Toe as well as a photo of RJ Rushmore  of Vandalog after the jump.
