NEW IN-STORE ARTIST
Alex White Mazzarella was born in Boston, USA in 1979. A lifelong artist, he graduated university with degrees in economics and city planning before setting off to Barcelona and consequently Hong Kong to explore street art and the culture of the public realm.
For Alex, the city, as a multitude of communities, bed of active cultures and place of common citizenship, served as Alex’s aperture into artistic expression and articulation. Originally inspired by the work of Hundertwasser, street art and specifically Kirchner, Basquiat, Pollock, and Tapies were instrumental to his becoming a professional artist. Moving to new York City in 2007 would see his talent and passion for drawing and cartons reignited with a focused trajectory and purpose; to transcend phenomenon and experience living in the 21st century. His world travels, observations and juxtapositions have been a constant force, providing an insight that has in turn shaped his life.
Nurtured by Larry Poons, Phillip Sherrod and Hugo Bastidas of the Art Students League, he has been exhibiting his paintings and artwork in New York since early 2009 after being discovered by Richard Temperio of the Sideshow Gallery. He is the Founding Director of Artefacting a global social arts project dedicated to stimulating community cohesion, dialogue and social justice. He sparked Artefacting as an initiative and practice of utilize art in the diverse public spaces of communities worldwide as a tool to bridge differences, open perspective, and manifest cultural undercurrents.
His works are in private collections in the United States, Europe and India and in the Museum collection of CoCCA, the Coimbatore Centre for Contemporary Art.

New drawings by Yuko Oda at Dandelion Wine
Opening Reception March 6, 2013, 7-9 pm
Can you feel how light a dandelion seed really is?
floating… through the breezy air…
And, with enough time, heaviness builds,
even with the most delicate of petals
soft whispers, gold spritzes,
cosmic bursts, and gentle caresses…
The stars and moons are dusting,
to help us find the way…
Our friend Yuko is an artist who has been studying and drawing dandelion flowers for a long time and when she moved to Greenpoint, she immediately vibed with the shop and wanted to collaborate! We’re so happy to have her work up through the end of March! Come have a drink and celebrate with us tonight!
