FUN WITH PIRASTA
We believe fun and education come together through interaction and participation. We embrace exploration. We love art and design. And we love learning, too. Our goal is simple: We want to bridge these passions to create one big colorful world. We deliver the big picture and leave the color up to you. And we don’t care if you go outside the lines.

THE ILLUSTRATOR OF THE BIG APPLE
Hometown? I’m originally from Sydney, Australia, but now spend time between Sydney and New York.
Described by friends as ‘HA HA Hancock’.
Favorite NYC building and why? Any brownstone in Brooklyn, love that they are like little characters, each with their own little quirks.
What do you like to do in the city? Catching the Ferry down the East river from Midtown to North Brooklyn and down to Dumbo for pizza.
Favorite NYC neighborhood? I seem to spend most of my time in the Lower East Side, finding new galleries that seem to appear and disappear on a whim.
Favorite museum? New Museum, and Guggenheim, love how the architecture juts out from the surroundings.
Favorite Artist? Julie Mehrtu.
Favorite childhood activity Drawing!
Worst subject in school? English. I would way rather draw and make pictures than write or speak!
