Libby Schoettle: the highlights of the West Village
Libby Schoettle is a New York-based artist, whose alter ego, PhoebeNewYork, appears on walls all over the city. Her deliberately imperfect paper doll-like creations, all wrinkles, bumps and tears, have struck a chord with many Manhattanites, drawn to the artist’s dark humour and open-hearted vulnerability. Schoettle’s many collaborators include Victoria Beckham, Sonia Rykiel and Rag & Bone, and her work has appeared in galleries around the world. Here, she tells us about an awesome foursome in her beloved West Village.
