With his “City Series” design, Efdot. sought to create something new that was a bit of a departure from his other work. He wanted to create a piece that was reflective of the unique and diverse personalities that populate the City. With all the heaviness and heartache that’s befallen New York in the past year, he wanted his bandana to provide a moment of levity, a reason to crack a smile.

With hidden messages, never-before-seen characters, and layers of open-to-interpretation design elements, “Kaleidoscopic One” evokes the fun, frenetic energy of a city skatepark. Playing with the theme of light vs. dark, and imbued with his trademark optimism, Efdot.’s design is one you can keep coming back to, finding something new to smile about each time.

Brooklyn, New York

Efdot
www.efdotstudio.com/new/

Efdot. is the moniker of Brooklyn-based artist, muralist, and graphic designer Eric Friedensohn. Inspired by skate culture, his hand-drawn characters and multi-colored murals evoke both youthful exuberance and an easy-going nostalgia. Creating what he calls “Art for Optimists,” Efdot.’s primary aim with his work is to create moments of joy for others, or as he so aptly dubbed them, “healthy distractions.” Citing Keith Haring, MC Escher, and John Langdon among his primary influences, Efdot.’s work often contains layers of bold, minimalist design mixed with hidden text, optical illusions, and “Easter eggs” that offer a new experience each time his designs are viewed. His incredible, multi-platform portfolio can be found around the world and includes everything from murals, skate decks, and neon sculptures to basketball courts and baseball cards. When he’s not in the studio, finishing a new mural, or working to provide designs for local small businesses, you’re likely to find Efdot. on his board at Astoria Skatepark, taking in the sunset behind the city skyline.

Free Arts NYC

Free Arts NYC is a non-profit organization that empowers underserved youth in the City through art and mentoring programs. Free Arts partners with local schools and other community organizations help kids and teens to develop their creativity, confidence, and skills to succeed. With the help of dedicated and caring volunteer mentors, since their founding in 1997 Free Arts NYC has delivered creative arts programs directly to over 32,000 low income, homeless, abused and neglected children.

Eric was drawn to Free Arts as his charity choice because he they are aligned with his own personal mission of using art to share, connect, teach, inspire, and learn. Despite the traumas of 2020 and hardships of the pandemic, Eric hopes that the right influences from Free Arts can help kids turn these experiences into positive change through beautiful and cathartic artistic expressions.
