PROSPECT PARK, Brooklyn — Sara Erenthal sees art wherever she goes, and now, the pandemic offers inspiration.
The Brooklyn-based, multi-disciplinary, self-taught artist focuses on themes of displacement, survival, and liberation.
Outside her studio and gallery work, Erenthal is known for painting on discarded objects in the streets. Her iconic self-portrait can be found on mirrors, discarded televisions and doors.
Recently she created a piece that seeks conversation — from six feet away, of course. She can often be found in Prospect Park.
“I live alone. In-person conversation is one thing I miss the most,” she said.
In an appropriately-spaced conversation with PIX11 News reporter Greg Mocker, she said she got the idea from a talk with a woman who said she was the first person to speak with her in a month and a half.
