Falling Into Place: Lilly Burgos

Its truly an honor to have such a lovely piece written about me by such an amazing writer…


They say that out of adversity comes opportunity. I’ve also heard that when things fall apart is when they are falling into the right place.

It’s been a long time…

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything on here.  Lots of things have happened this Fall and boy has it been a wild ride!  Unfortunately, due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy I have been a little preocuppied helping out with recovery efforts.  I hope to be back into the groove of things shortly and share some of the stories of the creative people, art, and wonders of my city, New York and the rest of the World.

Instead of TV series this time we coded a famous painter through three icons.

The posters come in three installments, first one this week.

Highlight white text under each poster to read the answer.

Andy Warhol (1928–1987)

Johan Vermeer (1632–1675)

Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890)

Jacques-Louis David (1748–1825)

Piet Mondrian (1872–1944)

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954)

René Magritte (1898–1967)

Jackson Pollock (1912–1956)

And here is part two and part three.
