Mail Pattern Boldness


I started reading an article in Vanity Fair about a "Beatrice Inn" spin-off in Chinatown. The piece became far more savoury when I realized that the proprietor, Andre Saravaiva was former graffiti artist, Mr. A.
Painting Parisian mailboxes in Bansky's documentary "Exit Through The Gift Shop" was his crowning, illicit glory. Love it -these gestures are what transform vast bolts of urban fabric into identifiable and delineated neighborhood pockets.
Now, you catch Mr. A behind bars. His latest, NYC nightclub "Le Baron".
