DUMBO Arts Festival 2010

Found lots of arts as you can imagine throughout DUMBO Arts Festival last weekend, I loved every second of it everyday!

I think this might be my favorite work — chalk board + chalk line drawing of DUMBO (I think). The old brick building as a background is just perfect.

We happened to walk by when artists were working on this work…

and it was done by the weekend:

That’s a lot of work! Well done :)

Saw lots of artists working on a piece on the street…

and there was lots of live music everywhere, too… (these guys were awesome!)

Strong message with strong visuals…

The flag and the Brooklyn Bridge:

More will follow! :)

Found Type: DUMBO Arts Festival 2010

I really enjoyed DUMBO Arts Festival last weekend! It was full of creativity and energy all day all night! I took lots of pictures, I will be shearing them in a few posts…

First up is always my favorite; Found Type!

Found spray painted type right by the archway…

Hand-written DUMBO Art Garage sign — nice to see lots of kids enjoying creating :)

Big 2629 numbers — making an awareness about recyclables.

I didn’t find this, (I so wish I did!) but it was so cool I had to share. “Everything is Fine” installation:

Setouchi International Art Festival 2010

Here is another awesome timely event that I was really lucky to be able to see some of — Setouchi International Art Festival 2010. It’s going on until October 31st this year, on the seven islands of the Seto Inland Sea + Takamatsu! (where I grew up!)

I was really excited to see my hometown proudly hosting the art festival, the signs were everywhere in the city, people were so enthusiastic about the whole thing…

Love the view of Seto Inland Sea.

Blue and white, stripes were everywhere — very summery!

I will be posting lots of photos this week from the art festival!
