The LISA project chooses its favorite works of art from Artnet’s street art sale
If there is anyone who knows street art, it is the founders of the LISA Project: as a voluntary non-profit organization, LISA Project is committed to bringing in a diverse group of local artists, national and international in Lower Manhattan. Over the past eight years he has grown into an incredible cultural force who has collaborated with artists ranging from Shepard Fairey to Stik, bringing their art to life in the form of the vibrant murals you can find dotted around downtown Manhattan.
The success of the project is due to the leadership of two people, Wayne Rada and Rey “The DR¡F” Rosa: Wayne, a longtime art enthusiast with a background in comedy, who acts as curator and director of the organization, and Rey, muralist and photographer, who co-founded the LISA Project NYC to help create opportunities for artists and bring greater appreciation and awareness for art to the public.
We recently connected with the dynamic duo at the perfect time – Artnet Auctions just launched the latest edition of their Urban art to sell. Filled with popular prints and bold original works by KAWS, Dondi White, Banksy, Richard Hambleton, Rammellzee and many more, this online auction is open for auction until March 12.
On a sunny Monday afternoon, we caught up with Wayne and Rey who shared their favorite artwork from the sale:
Exploding shadow head
Passion of Zephyr
Untitled # 2
Kate Moss, white gloves
Fred Braithwaite (Fab 5 Freddy)
Valium & Cocktails
