Liu Bolin Disappears at 5 Pointz – 5 Pointz May Disappear Too – Meeting Tonight
Chinese Artist Liu Bolin aka The Invisible Man had himself painted into an intricate graffiti mural at 5 Pointz yesterday. After touring a few graffiti sites, Liu selected a rich jungle scene by Meres and Zeso as the perfect backdrop for his unique disappearing act. It was a timely choice because 5 Pointz itself is in danger of disappearing. Legal walls are scarce in New York City and 5 Pointz has long been the place for national and international writers to paint.
TONIGHT at 7:00PM, there will be a community board meeting at Sunnyside Community Services, 43-31 39th Street. Hope you can make it.
Liu Bolin: Mask opening at Eli Klein Gallery tonight 462 West Broadway.
