FREE SHIPPING to UK for all unframed prints


Pratt Institute alumna Caledonia Curry creates large-scale paper cut outs and prints from recycled newspaper in her Brooklyn studio, with much of her work depicting her family and friends in imagined cityscapes. Originally pasting them all onto the streets of New York with glue, she now prefers a mix of street and gallery work, as she hates the idea of everything disappearing. In 2014, Swoon became the first living street artist to show at the newly-opened Brooklyn Museum.
