Sam Sidney | New York Never Felt So Good

Eerdmans is delighted to present New York Never Felt So Good, a collection of finely crafted felt portraits depicting iconic NYC images by the artist Sam Sidney.

From larger-than-life, only-in-New-York personalities like Andy Warhol, Joan Rivers, and Billie Holiday to hallowed civic iconography like a metro card, a street-cart hotdog, and Lady Liberty, New York Never Felt So Good sees Sidney distill the spirit of the city into a riot of vibrant color and masterful lines via her Instagram-famous felt layering technique. Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-era Audrey Hepburn plays it cool in a little black dress, pearls, and shades. The blue-and-white Greek- themed coffee cup brims with questionable brew. Jackie O’, no doubt en route to The Carlyle, dazzles in yellow Chanel. Other portraits include: John Lennon, The Notorious B.I.G., a bagel and lox, Anna Wintour, a Birkin bag, a taxicab, Iris Apfel, and Louis Armstrong.
