Indefinite Outings: Nicholas Forker’s Astronaut on Rag & Bone’s Art Wall – Photos & Video.
Today we wanted to draw attention to a mural by artist Nicholas Forker, illustrating his astronaut sitting on a couch outside of the Rag & Bone store, on East Houston and Elizabeth Street, on the border of Soho area becomes and the Lower East Side.
Nicholas Forker is no stranger to Indefinite Transit; he was also one of the artists that participated in the “Hueless” show, this past March, at our favorite art gallery in Chelsea, Mallick Williams & Co. His work of art, which features another manifestation of the astronaut you see below is, for a brief moment, in our Indefinite Transit episode on Mallick Williams, which you can see here.
I also found a cool video of Forker in action. See here:
I love when art is taken to the streets. Forker’s ball point pen on mylar rendition of this, which was installed at Mallick Williams & Co. was one of my favorite pieces in the show and it is really nice that more people will get to see the protagonist of his art – could we call the astronaut that? – out on the streets of NYC for all to see.
It is also really cool of Rag & Bone to foster this kind of sophisticated street art (they own the wall, after all) and showcase cool artists. We will keep up on what they “exhibit” next.
