Her work makes me feel nostalgic (in a positive way) of my childhood. And there is no turning back ever, so it is a forevermore longing for my childhood paper planes, in retrospect. This concept comes alive and does make our imaginations travel. And I also never thought about the true origins of kites and paper planes. Even though kites were a poignant source of fun and inspiration in my upbringing. To watch a kite fly high and soar is freeing of the mind, body and soul. Dixie

In NYC we tend to become indifferent to graffiti on brick walls from day to day from having been born or living here for too long. We occasionally become jaded by city life by default and not always pay mind to such good eye crack. If you’re a local and someone who follows graffiti art you take the 7 train to Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, where formerly known Phun Factory, now 5 Pointz stands as an entirely camouflaged living collage of graffiti art. But because we know how horrifically huge our favorite sewer pets can get, we couldn’t help being stop dead on our tracks in visualizing personified Rats wearing ties, holding umbrellas, briefcases, wearing I Love NY tees. It really softens their daunting safety in numbers. Funny thing is I don’t mind rats as much as roaches. British graffiti artist Banksy, who came into grips with his talent during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980’s, dropped some serious dough on the rental of wall space for his “legal” mural sized rats expedited by Colossal Media sign painters located on MacDougal and Houston and Canal street.

On the fourth of July I stood in the welcoming summer rain, on a rooftop of an old Williamsburg building on Metropolitan Avenue. As I watched the bombarding, bursting splendor of colors light up the dark skies of the Hudson River, I couldn’t help but think about the artist behind the madness, a guy who choreographed how this summer holiday display would all pan out in the heavens. This year’s largest aerial display yet, was organized by Macy’s and Pyro Spectaculars, who choreographed the ultra high-tech display, via magic marker drawings. And some of the most exotic shells in the world, were used in putting out rarely seen pyrotechnic effects. A highlight of this was a floating firework – which floated in the water, shooting out fireworks.
