Times Square

"Lamour Supreme"

Promoting the Ink Master Rivals show on Spike TV, two tattooed arms have made their way onto a huge billboard on Broadway between 51st and 52nd Streets. Featured on the right side of the billboard are several eerie, brightly-hued characters fashioned by Lamour Supreme — as pictured above:

And the left side of the billboard showcases a crew of Sheryo and the Yok‘s delightfully zany characters:

It’s great to see work by some of our favorite artists so prominently displayed!

Deemed “The People’s Picasso” back home in Salvador, Brazil, Bel Borba has been transforming his country’s visual landscape for 35 years. For the past month, he has been here in New York City creating artwork — with Burt Sun and André Costantini — from recycled and found materials in different locations throughout the city. This past weekend, these pieces were brought together for a final installation in Times Square. Here are some images captured yesterday:

Bel Borba is also the subject of a documentary, Bel Borba Aqui, on view through tomorrow at the Film Forum on West Houston Street.
