Outdoor Gallery street art 2 Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

Currently on view at 17 Frost is an exhibit of artwork by artists featured in Yoav Litvin’s remarkable book, Outdoor Gallery NYC. While visiting the exhibit on Thursday afternoon, we had the opportunity to speak to Yoav: 

This exhibit is in many ways a reflection of your book. It is wonderfully eclectic.

Yes, like the book Outdoor Gallery NYC, it celebrates the diversity of the incredible range of street art that surfaces in NYC’s public spaces.

Enzo and Nio in Outdoor Gallery NYC  Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

How did you connect with all of these artists – whose works are featured in your book and in this Outdoor Gallery NYC exhibit?

I initially met most of them through encountering their works on our streets. I further connected with them via Facebook or Instagram.

Cern Outdoor Gallery NYC Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

Can you tell us something about the process from the time you had your resources – your photos and interviews — to the actual production of the book?

Working with the designer, Steve Mosier, I created a template for a book. I then presented my concept to about 30 publishers. In late summer, I signed a contract with Gingko Press, my first choice.  The first copies of the book became available last week.

Billy Mode Outdoor Gallery NYC Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

The book looks wonderful, and your book launch party was quite remarkable. We’ve heard that folks waited on line for hours to get in.

Yes, that was quite humbling. And I feel grateful to everyone.

Alice Mizrachi Outdoor Gallery NYC Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

To what do you attribute the incredible success of the book launch?

My sense is that folks appreciate my particular approach. I have deep respect for all of the artists who share their works with us in public spaces. I admire their visions and their skills. I particularly love the way they challenge conventions.

Chris Stain Outdoor Gallery NYC 2 Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

You are a scientist, as well as a photographer and street art documentarian. Has your background as a scientist affected the way you approach street art?

I suppose it has. It is essential that my research and findings remain “clean” and unbiased. I am interested in presenting something that is important not only on a local level, but on a global one, as well.

Bishop203 Outdoor Gallery NYC Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

In what ways has this project impacted you?

I feel that I’ve developed a distinct personal style and approach to documenting street art.

Icy and Sot Outdoor Gallery NYC Yoav Litvins Outdoor Gallery NYC Moves Indoors to 17 Frost with Enzo and Nio, Cern, Billy Mode, Alice Mizrachi, Chris Stain, Bishop203, Icy and Sot, ÑEWMERICA and more

If you had the opportunity to spend time in another city and work on a similar “Outdoor Gallery” project, which city would you choose to visit?

I’d probably choose São Paulo, Brazil.
