First Friday: NYC Street Artist

Vartouhi Pinkston - This was a piece she was painting as I passed.

I share my deepest apologies as the First Friday post for July is a bit delayed. Here is what happened. Friends in town for the weekend combined with living in NYC. I know you have heard this city never sleeps. Well, it is true. So here I am on this steamy Sunday afternoon sharing some art with you that is a bit more feminine than what I have shared in the past. I really wanted to give you all a taste of the amazing things you can see on the sidewalks of this great city.



I found Vartouhi Pinkston and her art outside of The Museum of Modern Art in NYC. She and a number of other artist set up shop most days of the week outside of the museum to work and sell their art. I was drawn to the color palate of her etchings. I also loved the clean and simple look of the work. I am hunting for that perfect piece of NYC art/memoriablilia and Vartouhi's etchings might just be the winner. Please visit her the next time you are in the city and visit her website as well to see more work.
