@LadiesLoveProject “FUNKY FRESH” Exhibit X Pop-Up Shop

LadiesLoveProject 2019

LadiesLoveProject 2019 1

our 1st @LadiesLoveProject #FunkyFreshNY Exhibit and 1 Day Pop-Up Shop. We are happy to have held it at @Bierwax in Prospect Heights Brooklyn aka Fort Green. Why they are changing the names of NYC neighborhoods? – it’s no surprise to most. Anyway the┬á location had a beautiful outdoor patio for a sufficient amount of vendors, and an indoor cozy space to hang artwork. Latino owner, Chris Maestro, his wife, and team welcomed us with open arms and made the event super smooth experience. @Ylove57 a long time friend and supporter of the Toofly “ideas” teamed up as the point person for the art sales. We had worked together in the past on Younity exhibitions and her assistance was very helpful. Together we hashed out the details to push the event to new heights. The Ladies Love Project is a growing idea that evolves with time. It flows to the beat of NY. Each year we team up with different artists, artisans, designers, and and staff to see what kind of flava they can add to the event. It is carefully curated to bridge the gap between established talent, and up and coming talent. We are known to head into different neighborhoods as much as possible to discover different parts of our city. We like to be all inclusive with the folks we build with because representation matters. Everyone is welcome at LLP as long as you are serious about your craft and message to the world. Locations are our biggest hurdle each year, but somehow we manage to partner with spaces and orgz. Sometimes a community space will charge us an arm and a leg with no care for our project, and sometimes they will allow us to pop-in and do what we do best with full support. Every year is a different experience, and we try everything to see what works and what doesn’t. It’s the best way to create. As an independent, and self sustainable project we have had our ups and downs. The journey to curate arts and culture events in NY, LA, and other cities to represent who we are continues. CULTURE IS OUR POWER it is OUR LEGACY to this ever changing “New, New York”. Thank you ALL for pulling thru, and making the troop to Brooklyn. Your support for the LLP project means a lot to all of us. We are heading into our 10Yr anniversary in 2020 and will be planning something special. Look out!!!

More flicks coming soon…

Soyo Nails, Yonkers NY

July 12th, 2019 | Category: Clients,Community,Fashion

Who doesn’t love nails these days?! Nail art has become a new creative market for many women entrepreneurs. It’s amazing to see how much art can fit on a small canvas like nails. It’s pretty! I especially love women who venture off to set-off this new business model and take it to the next level. Especially women who love fashion, design, and art. They can now hook up their spaces with fresh decor to welcome women for a spa-art kind of day experience. Top it off with a location featuring women street artists from NY, and bang! you got a dope new thang happening. Right? Right? I dig it. It’s happening up in Yonkers ya’ll, and it’s called Soyo Nails run by the lovely Jenna. A beautiful new client, and space. This summer I had the opportunity to rock a colorful installation that is a little bit more abstract, and completely different from what I do. Exploring structures to paint on. Having fun with it, staying active on these mean streetz check it out. Shout out to Daniella who assisted me on the project in 2018, and now 2019. Go #teamtoofly!

Wellingcourt Mural Project 2019

July 12th, 2019 | Category: Community,Events,Graffiti / Street Art

10 yrs at Wellingcourt! It’s official we have been at it for a minute now. It’s nice to see how our work has evolved, who’s stuck around and who hasn’t. Most of all, how many of our friends continue to support this “community” event without all the hype. A family friendly event where artists can focus on the art of the street. Many of us truly take the time to create meaningful work and strut our skills to continue to elevate the art form. We stay present as the times and neighborhoods change, especially in New York. It’s nice to see more people fall in love with what we do, it will extend it’s life. It has taken a while to get here. Our sweat and tears to keep this culture alive has finally payed off.┬áA legacy we are proud of. Even when so many hated the transformation from graffiti to street art. In the end at 360 you can see how much it has saved lives, created a trade to survive on your own, and showed to so many how much this art matters from the bottom to the top! We will forever miss 5Pointz, we are thankful Wellingcourt has has become a second home for some of us. We will continue to bring you the gems. Thank you ADHOC for setting it off, and Garrison for keeping it alive. Special thanks to @NYCPride for sponsoring many of the murals throughout NY this summer in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of #Stonewall riots. I think it’s time for a book yeo! What do ya’ll think?
