“I am not an artist, I don’t know anything about the art world," Ficalora said. "I googled ‘street art’ and I randomly picked Jim Avignon, Gabriel Specter, Mr. Never Satisfied, Giovanni Rodriguez, Miriam Castillo, and Cost, who, if you know street art, you know they all wound up being big names. So they came and I threw them up. After that I felt so much better.
I was born here, I work here, I was with my mother here... this has been a release.
They call me the accidental curator.”
