Fabrizio Moretti of THE STROKES Unveils Art Installation
The hipster web is exploding today with word of a new pop-up art installation by Fabrizio Moretti, drummer for the indie rock band The Strokes.
The New York Times first reported back in 2011 about art popping up on the side of Rag & Bone's Houston Street store (on 73 East Houston Street in New York City) when designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville invited visiting artists to use their store wall as their canvas. This week, Moretti's pieec features handmade astronauts, which are of course already being stolen. For more, check out Instagram here.
