The Brooklyn Uptown connection was in full effect this past Wednesday at The Sound of Art’s (SOA) When Brooklyn Invades Uptown event held at Apt. 78. Not only were we treated to brilliant artwork courtesy of artists Jackson Hunt and Eric Diehl but the gathered attendees were also regaled by the sounds of the mind-blowing live band, Mobius Collective. The icing on the cake was a music genre hopping set by none other than DJ Saundi Wilson. Another benefit of the function is that a whole slew of folks from outside the neighborhood came out to party with us and see how Uptown gets down. By the same token, Uptown got a taste of BK. A little borough cross-pollination is always a good thing. I think the SOA will have to do another one of these shindigs pretty soon. By the way, if you missed the event, the artwork will be on sale and on display at Apt. 78 (4447 Broadway) until June.

Attention last minute shoppers, tomorrow is your last chance to take part in the hyper-local extravaganza that is the Off the Map Market. Tomorrow’s venue is the Audubon Partnership (513 West 207th Street) and the vendors will be in the building from 3 PM to 9 PM. You can pick up cool t-shirts from Will Teez, awesome prints from M. Tony Peralta, Ed Ubiera and the Sound of Art, as well as lingerie courtesy of Brazen, hand-made confections (Batter Sweet) and a whole host of other items. Don’t forget about the hula-hoops from Inwood Hoops, which make a great gift for kids and adults. Proceeds from the sale of the hula-hoops go to the college fund of Ryan McPartland, who is the 16-year-old founder of Inwood Hoops. Remember folks: Spread love it’s the Uptown way!!!

I first came across the artwork of Ed Ubiera via the Sound of Art. I was immediately blown away by how amazingly talented this man is. Ed is an art machine, producing eye-popping and complex masterpieces effortlessly and prolifically. What I enjoy most about his work is that there a mental commitment you make when attempting to digest it. His output is cerebral while at the same time instantly appealing. Ed is also the man behind the Uptown Collective’s cartoon strip, The Last Stop as well as the super cool Sound of Art t-shirt you may have seen around town. Make sure to stop by the Off the Map Market tomorrow at Bread & Yoga (4951 Broadway @ 207th Street) from 1:30 to 9 PM, as Ed Ubiera will be in the building selling his artwork. This is your chance to put his work on your walls.

What are some of the things you love about living Uptown?

The food and it is getting better and more varied everyday.

What is the meaning of Chicken and Robots?

Chickens and Robots is like Ying and Yang, man and woman, nature and machines. Polar opposites basically – plus it has a nice ring but it has nothing to do with the TV show, but I do like that show.
