We think you could tell; we had a lot of fun at the T.Sq Newsstand last week in Times Square.

The entire structure is made of wood and carved wood a nice organic contrast in the midst of Times Square."

Happily Until Their Deaths: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Adrienne Kammerer, Toshio Saeki @ Narwhal Projects, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
We are really excited about this one: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Toshio Saeki, and Adrienne Kammerer are all in a fantastic looking show, "Happily Until Their Deaths," opening at Narwhal Projects in Toronto on October 20. The show is based around what curator Kristin Weckworth notes as “Happily Until Their Deaths” being once a popular concluding pronouncement to fairy tales in the 1600s. This eventually softened into the more familiar “happily ever after”.
