NYC-based artist Balint Zsako arrived in May to paint Untitled (Romance) on the Sky Yard’s east wall. This playful cast of characters illustrate the connections between us, playing and teasing each other, lending a helping hand, growing closer or apart, while some get a little carried away and others are friends, enemies or lovers. The painting is richly detailed - take a moment for a closer look, and you’ll see something new every time! Balint Zsako is represented by Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects.
