Title: NYC BIKE MAP 2014
Description: New York, 2014. Using his personal photography and the legendary iconography of New York City, the painter, writer, street photographer and artist (also known to be floating over the streets as the mushroom-headed astronaut DaChamp) creates wonderfully intricate handmade prints and collages over discarded city cycling maps. 86 x 62 cm. 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 Using his original photographs, the artist screen prints and paints on outdated cycling maps which would otherwise be discarded by the city and local cycling shops. "He presents his vision of New York on an unorthodox canvas," says fellow artist and graffiti collaborator Lorenzo Masnah, who was manning the market booth on the day I was there. Each "functional art" map which the artist has lovingly renamed "Recycling Maps" is one of a kind and is made in Marcellís Williamsburg studio. NYC City
