The art of Pawel Kuczynski

Brilliant art from Pawel Kuczynski

Pawel Kuczynski may not be a “local” artist – but he is one of those rare, special people who’s art should be appreciated across the world. Brilliant, thought-provoking pieces that are a byproduct of our times. Not for those who are “victims,” however. Wouldn’t make sense to those people…

One of my favorites (called “Disable”) is perfect for anyone who drives in circles around a parking lot to find the “closest spot,” or those who spend 30 or 60 minutes “working out” at a gym, only to spend the rest of their time dormant on the couch “catching up with the DVR.”

You can buy his photos (with or without frame, canvas, etc.) at Pictorem for a very reasonable price. See a few more noteworthy ones after the jump.

Spring 2014 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival

Spring 2014 Hoboken Arts & Music Festival: Sunday, May 4th

The first of two Hoboken Arts & Music Festivals in 2014 takes place on Washington Street between Observer Highway and 7th Streets on Sunday, May 4th.

Hoboken Arts & Music Festival Sunday May 4 2014

Like the movie Groundhog Day, you can mill around the streets from 11am to 6pm to see hundreds of (mostly) out-of-town vendors selling food, artwork, and myriad of other trinkets and tchotchkes.

Big attractions are typically the zeppoles and fried crab cakes – and of course Cake Boss oglers will be around too. Three music stages also set up. The main stage is south of the CVS downtown, a kiddie stage at 3rd Street, and a secondary stage at the north end of the festival between 6th and 7th Streets.

Some of this year’s featured musical acts include:

Groovy performance from The Black Hollies

One particular act that we’re interested in seeing is The Black Hollies.

Here’s a perfect song for the sheep as they enter their voluntary weekly enslavement called “employment” this morning. Not nearly as gloomy as the title suggests, and sounds like a mashup between trippy 60′s and today.
