A quick plug
Venezuelan born, Brooklyn based multi-media artist Kevin Marcell has placed his latest art project on the map. A New York City Cycling Map, that is. By employing a variety of techniques such as silkscreening, stenciling and spray-painting, Marcell creates unique portraits of the city on NYC Cycling Maps. Using his original photographs, the artist screen prints and paints on outdated cycling maps which would otherwise be discarded by the city and local cycling shops. Each functional art map which the artist has lovingly renamed ¨Recycling Maps” is one of a kind and is made in Marcell’s Williamsburg studio. NYCrecyclingmaps can also be found on Etsy.
