A special release called for a special interview, and we took a trip to the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn to make it happen. OBA Artist Spotlight and educator Sophocles “Sophotoons” Plokamakis (@Sophotoons) has teamed up with Apostolos “Paul” Anagnostopoulos of NeoPoet.com for their upcoming publication: “Subway Stories”—an insane collaboration of visual art, poetry, and storytelling.
Sophocles calls the art “metro manga,” Paul has the “passion of a poet,” and OBA founder Emilia A. Ottoo was there to document the details. The interview was shot by OBA volunteer King Downing Esq. Keep a look out for our interview, “Subway Stories” available for purchase, keep up with Sophocles and check out the NeoPoet community!
While you’re waiting on our interview…join them this weekend in Queens for the “Spring Art Exhibition & Sale” by the Greek Artists Guild: a FREE art show including FREE drinks, live music and FREE admission–just in case the FREE part wasn’t clear!
CONGRATULATIONS to Sophocles and Paul, we can’t wait for #SubwayStories!
