Wonderment and Innocence: An Interview with Street Artist Swoon

“There’s that feeling that you get when you see something that you don’t understand the origin of: wonderment,” she said. “It brings about a kind of innocence, and I love that. I love to witness it. I love to be a part of making those moments happen.”

That’s from an interview with Swoon, the New York based street artist turned fine artist who’s beautified derelict alleys and abandoned buildings with her intricate paper wheat pastes for the last 10+ years. She speaks with the NY Times about her work and her career here, as well her show at the Brooklyn Museum, which closes on August 24. Be sure to watch the video above because it’s always great to her and artist’s story in their own words.
