Staying Alive 2: A Cru of Characters
The Hamilton Fish Park Branch of the NYPL is delighted to present Staying Alive 2: A Cru of Characters, a captivating selection of artwork by three talented urban artists of diverse backgrounds and ages.
Growing up in
Based in Bushwick, 16-year-old Moriah Ressler grew up in a family of artists. Her father, Robert Ressler, is an award-winning sculptor. Moriah’s earliest art-related memory involves illustrating her mother’s poetry. With a sophisticated flair for the weird, Moriah currently fashions surreal images on a variety of surfaces ranging from stickers to handcrafted paper. Though cartoonish and whimsical in style, her illustrations, often juxtaposed with words, exude an unsettling, ominous tone.
A reception for the artists, along with performances by the Lethal Weaponz Crew and Nelson “Chief” Seda, will be held on Thursday, February 4th from 5-7pm.
