is defined by dictionary.com as "to enter a state of hysterical rapture or ecstasy". What a marvelous word! Swoon is also one of my favorite street artists. She studied painting at Pratt. Her subjects are street people. Most often she does wheatpaste prints and paper cutouts. I love her style as well as her subject matter. Sometimes her figures are a combination of great design and draftspersonship combined with decorative elements which make me swoon. I noticed her work in "Exit Through the Gift Shop". She is also represented in Graffiti World: Street Art from Five Continents.
What a surprise to receive one of her images yesterday in my mail. My son photographed this work on Grand Street in Brooklyn and sent it to me from his phone.
