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

The American pop-artist brought to life one of his signature “Temper Tot” which is a cheeky play on The Incredible Hulk and a wink to his kids Zephyr and Mars. This new Temper Tot was painted on the same wall where the Green version was made a few years ago.

A.P.C. main man does and does not interview well

Jean Touitou, founder of French fashion brand, A.P.C., says a lot of great things and really annoying things in this interview with the Wall Street Journal. The interview was done in conjunction with a few new A.P.C. shops opening in Manhattan.

A good thing: I always thought Samuel Beckett had great style.

A bad thing: “The sexiest article would be desire, I believe.”

A good thing: I don’t work on Fridays, That’s when I go see my “swing coach,” which is a pretentious way of referring to my golf instructor.

A bad thing: “To really get away, I go on my very fast, very secure Finnish motorboat.”
