POST-IT ART WAR IN NYC

You had me at “HI.” Post-It Wars broke out in NYC office buildings last week, creating a collage of Post-It street art on a battleground of creativity. What started as a simple, “Hi” message sparked Manhattan’s ad agencies and window gazers to bring on a Post-It Art War showdown on Canal Street.

Creative minds used words, pictures and images from famous pop culture influencers to out-do each other across high rises. Some big ad agencies like Havas Worldwide, Horizon Media, Cake Group, Biolumina and Harrison, Star, and Getty Images are reportedly involved. Havas Worldwide won a Post-It War contest by being the first company to post an image of the Clio Award, granting them access to a table at the awards show.

The hashtags being used to keep up with this contemporary form of street art on Instagram and Twitter: #postitwars #canalstreet #canalnotes

Sam Flores releases “Innocent When We Dream” and “Follow Me” Prints

Sam Flores, Innocent When We Dream, Follow Me, Upper Playground, Citrus Report

The artist reminds us of our peaceful ignorance as we sleep. If you hit a road block or develop a pattern of formulated cause and effect, take inspiration from “Innocent When We Dream” and hit the reset button. Other times, instead of looking inward, we get a little help from our friends. “Follow Me” encourages you to do just that; find guidance and support from those around you.
