PhoebeNewYork Street Art Comes to West Chester

New PhoebeNewYork murals have appeared in West Chester:

[Store owner] Greco said everybody loves PhoebeNewYork who was transplanted in West Chester.

“They’re just inspirational,” Greco said. “It puts a smile on people’s faces.

“It’s girl power and good for the boys to see, too.”

“It brings a sense of creativity to an ugly brick wall,” Greco said. “It brings color and life and art — everything West Chester strives to be.”

The murals are expected to hang through the end of August, though there are movements afoot to keep them up longer in concert with the Public Arts Commission. Visit G Shop Thrift and let them know you want to see more of PhoebeNewYork!

PhoebeNewYork Solo Show in Toronto

PhoebeNewYork is heading to Canada!

Phoebe is thrilled to be making the journey to Toronto for her first ever solo show in Canada.  Come visit Phoebe at pop-up Gallery 181 inside the studio of Danielle Nicholas Bryk (of HGTV) starting March 1st.

“I fell in love with Phoebe when I spotted her a few years ago in New York City.  She strikes such a powerful chord with a wide variety of people. She is at times political, at times empowered, at times broken-hearted and always endearing as she experiences the complexities of being a modern woman.   I am beyond excited to have a part in spreading the Phoebe love.”

See the show at Gallery 181 on Queen Street, March 1st through March 31st. The gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays after 6pm or by appointment at

Phoebe New York in New York Magazine

Phoebe made The Cut!

“Who needs a man?” Phoebe asks in one image, wearing zebra heels and a pencil skirt. “Are you in charge of your love life?” she asks in another. In runway images she appears with exclamations like, “It’s MY style.” Her artwork often raises a playful eyebrow at the fashion industry while questioning beauty standards and feelings about love and gender.

Sold Magazine Attends Phoebe New York's Solo Debut

The Sold Crew came to see Phoebe's first solo show last week!

Phoebe's dark and funny explorations into love and life reflect creator Libby Schoettle’s vulnerability, raw emotions, and witty observations.

Her paper characters adorn many of New York's lampposts, mailboxes and walls; and she is admired for consistently getting her work up. You can always find a fresh Phoebe!

Amazingly for such a prolific artist, this is Phoebe New York's 1st solo show. It was a great feeling to be in a room full of her work after hunting it on the streets for years!

Sarah Sansom also sat down with Libby for some great questions about her show, her work, and what's coming up in the new year. Read the full interview:

From the article "10 Rising Street Artists Who Are Taking the Art Form Beyond Banksy":

PhoebeNewYork at The Kitchen Benefit Auction 2017

This collage work depicts PHOEBENEWYORK, the alter-ego of artist Libby Schoettle. Created with a mix of found objects including vintage photographs, magazine clippings, or clothing, the work combines materials that have been owned and handled by others, incorporating their tactile qualities into works that find beauty in the supposed flaws of wrinkles, rips, or stains. Phoebe’s humorous and satirical observations about life and love mirror Schoettle’s own experiences and vulnerability. Her adventures can be seen throughout New York City in the form of stickers featuring the collages themselves, each depicting this now iconic round-faced woman with bobbed black hair, PHOEBENEWYORK. –Courtesy of The Kitchen
