2007 Coney Island Siren Festival Artwork


That's the artwork for this year's Siren Festival in Coney Island, which the Village Voice is sponsoring on July 21. The artist writes at Invisible Man:
The artwork for this summer's Siren Music Festival put on by the Voice. I tried to capture the insanity and culturally brackish waters that is Coney Island while keeping the color palette limited to the reds and blues I've liked working with lately. Last summer I took a photo on the boardwalk of a man feeding seagulls frenchfries. He'd just hold them up in the air and the seagull would float down and gulp 'em right out of his fingers. That was partial inspiration for this illo and the moment is recreated right above the siren.
The Siren site is here, but the 2006 schedule and info are still posted.
