Swoon Swoon

About Artist: Swoon (American, b.1977) is a notable Street artist, who has contributed to the Pop Art movement. She was born in New London, CT, and raised in Daytona Beach, FL. The artist’s real name is Caledonia Dance Curry. In 1997, Swoon moved to New York, where she obtained a BA in Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. One of her most recognized pieces is called Anthropocene Extinction. Swoon’s signature works include life-size human forms that she creates from recycled newsprint paper. It takes her weeks to paint and cut out each figure in her studio, and once the forms are complete, she takes them to the streets of New York and glues them to the side of buildings using wheat paste. When Swoon first began creating Street Art, she focused her energy on things that were meant to disappear and her ability to let them go. The creations are not as permanent as spray paint, but they stay around for a long time. The art works eventually either flake or rot away. In order to find a spot to hang her works of art, Swoon rides around the streets of New York looking for appropriate places. Once she locates a space that is large enough and that receives a lot of visibility, she hangs the art alone. You can find her creations on trash cans, light poles, walls, doors, rooftops, and sidewalks within the city of New York; the figures have gained critical acclaim.
