Ab Ex Graffiti

711 Third Avenue was one of the first Modernist office buildings of its time, completed in 1956- as well as one of the first to recognize the value of awesome lobby art. Just around the corner inside the entrance is a grandiose and colorful mosaic by Hans Hofmann, that despite its age, appears almost as if it is graffiti-inspired. In bold and vibrant colors, the mosaic captures the spirit of the Abstract Expressionist, who was also once a teacher of Louise Nevelson. There’s also an aluminum Jose de Rivera piece called Continuum adjacent from it.
