#nennin stamps Five Sites PERFECT
Welcome to the debut of #nennin PERFECT. This issue stamps two sites for attitude, another site that’s throwing around some labels to pin down graffiti, street art, etc.
Check out the mural that’s not monkeying around and open up your calendar to mark an art show that’ll be here before you know it.

Street-art festivals, the method through which cities offer a legal venue for artistic expression are great, but I find that they seldom result in genuine social expression rather than works that are, for the most part, decorative.

Attending the Armory Show has always been an annual “end of winter” art event, a wardrobe challenge as to whether you were going to trample in the March snow or stagger through a rare warm afternoon to Piers 92 and 94 in NY, regardless of seeing some of the most famed and emerging galleries showing standout works.Source: The Armory Show Is Coming this September to the Javits Center, NYC
