The Flower Guy

The sun is out but it’s cold and not much in bloom this January, especially morale. Womp.  So I’m happy to share this little anecdote which combines a few of my fave things – creativity, pretty flowers, and just a wee bit of rebellion.

Michael De Feo is a street artist who is infamous for defacing fashion ads, throughout NYC, and then low and behold, being embraced by none other than the fashion industry.  Brilliant.
