Last week Vandalog's RJ Rushmore and Keith Schweitzer and Mike Glatzer of M.A.N.Y. took over an Upper West Side apartment for a few days between tenants and curated Up Close and Personal, an exhibition of small works by a very impressive set of street artists. The focused format made for many beautiful pieces and some completely unrecognizable work. The show closed yesterday, but here are photos of a tiny portion of the 36 pieces on view.
- This mirror painting by Skewville faced the front door, greeting visitors.
- Probably the biggest surprise of the show: tiny, intricate collages by Clown Soldier.
- In the hallway, a canvas by Edible.
- Drawing of a melancholy little figure by Veng.
- Dark, fairy tale-like line drawings by Elbow Toe.
- Superb color pencil portrait by Gaia; such a change from his black-and-white paste-ups.
- Drippy drawing by Barcelona-based duo How and Nosm.
There are more photos of the superb show over at Vandalog and on M.A.N.Y.'s site.
