Original Spaceman Artwork Now Available

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Spaceman artwork now available for you to own. [IMAGE: SPACEMAN]
A few months ago we interviewed the local artist known only as Spaceman. You’ve seen the iconic images on the streets of Rochester. Now you can own them (and contribute to two great causes). Proceeds gathered from the sale of these stickers, prints and t-shirts will go towards Spaceman’s efforts to clean up waterways in the Genesee Valley; including the Genesee River and surrounding tributaries. Spaceman also requests that a portion of the proceeds go to RocSubway for the upkeep of the site. Thanks Spaceman!

But don’t wait. Quantities are EXTREMELY limited so grab this stuff while it’s here.

Original artwork by Spaceman, available here…

Who is Spaceman?

Friday, November 30th, 2012

This half nude lady by an unknown artist appeared on the Averill Avenue 490 overpass a few months ago. She was removed soon after channel 10 put her on the 5 o'clock news.
A few months ago this woman caught the attention of motorists external link on I-490 near downtown Rochester. The image immediately made me think of early works by Banksy external link or Shepard Fairey external link, artists who catapulted themselves into pop culture stardom by plastering their towns with often graphic and politically-charged poster art. I wondered, was this Rochester artist making a political/social statement? Or is this half-nude character with the peace sign pasty simply a random piece of visual titillation?

A few people on Facebook claimed to know the artist, but my attempts to track him (or her) down were fruitless. Then yesterday a friend* of mine spotted a similar image stuck to a 490/590 support column at the Can of Worms interchange…
