Who woulda thunk? Art made out of Post-Its

As a native New Yorker, I'm pretty sure that if you look hard enough, you can find anything here. My latest impression of the art seen was observed in a pop-up store/gallery near Lafayette street (next to Chinatown). I was graciously invited to the Post-It event by another blogger, who happened to be a good friend of mine. At first, I wanted to give her a flat out no. Why did I need to go to this event? Sigh...its amazing what I could have missed out on. In this case, I learned that art can be found in the most unexpected places, and in the oddest materials you could imagine!

 This wall piece looks inspired by the "pop" art prints, like those from the 1950s, made by artist like Andy Warhol! All out of Post-it's.

The gentleman who was presenting these new over-sized post-its (pretty cool, huh?) told me that these drawings were made by NYC artists just for the event.  
This is perhaps the coolest work I saw, though. The artist, Robert Mann, developed 3D post it designs and placed them over a light box (usually used by photographers to see through negatives)! The effect is floral and marine-like at the same time. Absolutely beautiful!
