212 Arts is pleased to present a new solo exhibition from NYC collage and street artist Libby Schoettle featuring her alter ego, PhoebeNewYork, on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 6:00-9:30 pm. Elisabeth Schoettle was named “1 of 10 Rising Street Artists Who Are Taking the Art Form Beyond Banksy” by Artnet News.
Her new exhibit entitled “Wall to Wall” will celebrate the always vulnerable, yet strong PhoebeNewYork, while laying bare how imperfect the life of a woman and an artist can be.
In this show, PhoebeNewYork is clearly conjured from an alchemy of the artist’s intimate introspections and public persona. Through her distinctively raw, cut-out forms PhoebeNewYork reveals so much about identity, woman-power, and rebellion.
PhoebeNewYork is a NYC street art mainstay: a character beloved for connecting with passersby and Instagram admirers as they relate to her experiences of feeling misunderstood, isolated, and underestimated.
