Greg LaMarche Spruces Up Greenpoint

Greg LaMarche has spruced up the 22 acre construction zone at Greenpoint Landing (that will soon become mixed income housing). I already love Greg’s cut paper work (we showed a few at SCOPE NY last year) and am happy to see his work on the streets!

Inspired by the dynamism of his native New York City and its role as an incubator of the outlaw art of graffiti, Greg Lamarche’s collages combine the city’s relentless rhythm and graffiti’s aggressive presence to express the power, elegance and rebelliousness of urban creativity. Using found materials and commercially printed papers from his vast collection of vintage printed matter, Lamarche abstracts graffiti’s visual language, playing with a profusion of font styles, word fragments, multiple layers, bold colors, rhythmic repetition, multiple perspective and movement. Each unique work of precisely hand-cut paper thus becomes an interplay of the directness of graphic design and the aesthetics of fine art. More info here:
