On Monday we stumbled upon Brazilian artist Roberto Barr on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side. He was putting the finishing touches on a couple of new sculptural artworks after they had been brought outside the studio to dry in the sun. One of the art pieces is an eight-foot tall paper-mache giraffe. Barr, who lives and works in Brussels, Belgium, was in New York to create these as part of a commission for the newest downtown New York location of MacarOn Cafe, a cafe chain and French confections company. Camille Cannone, the French chef-owner who commissioned the work, was on hand to watch Barr at work and record video on her iPad.
