On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, works by Linus Coraggio were featured in the photo triptych that accompanied the New York Times’ coverage of the opening of the new Buddy Warren Inc. shop at 171 Chrystie St. on the Lower East Side.
Five Coraggio pieces were included in the photograph:
- “King Chess Set” Chair
- “Action Figure” Mirror
- “Queen Chess Set” Chair
- “White Copper and Black Sun Queen” Chess Set
- “Glass Wheel” Chopper
A nice profile by Suzanne Slesin for The New York Times.
Of Coraggio’s artworks, she writes, “sometimes tough and predatory-looking, they can also be lyrical and romantic.”
She also makes specific mention of Coraggio’s “Hammer & Sickle” Chair.
“[some of my chairs] have got to be uncomfortable—people in New York don't sit down very long anyway.”
