Not so sure about this- The man in this photograph, taken in Jamaica, is believed to be Banksy
This is from 2008- don’t think I believe it- don’t know if I want to.

Here is a shot I did of someone I am proud to call my friend- the talented and wonderful Lynda Kay.

This is a quick post in excitement of the return of “Tarantino Night” at the 3 Clubs in Hollywood.

I made this image for her album-

Went to the LACMA yesterday with Ash. Always nice to get out and see both what the masters did and what contemporary artusts are doing in the same weekend.

Here are a few of my favorites from the quick trip-

Nadelman_Le BoulevardierThis piece is by Elie Nadelman and is titled “Le Boulevardier”.   (Here is his wiki page)

I love the nose and the eyes on this piece. There is a hollowness to it not only in the literally sense, but in its striking contours and mood.

Next up—–

Picasso_Vidal

Pablo Picasso, “Portrait of Sebastin Juner Vidal”. Obviously from the blue period (1901-1904), there is a glow to this piece when you see it in person. It is really nice to see something from his prolific life that is not in the Cubism or Surrealism category (although there is plenty of that at the LACMA as well).

Last one for this quick blog—- (and my favorite of the day)….

Giacometti_Yanaihara

Alberto Giacometti– “Portrait of Isaku Yanaihara”. There is such a deep and subtle sadness to this for me. In the open space behind him, in his nonspecific vagueness. I could stare at this one for some time.

Went to a great gallery show at The Cella Gallery in NoHo. A friend of mine- Timothy Garrett was launching his new calendar of tattooed pin-up girls.

Very cool stuff and well worth checking out- you can purchase his work here.

Here  are a few pics from the show-

This is fantastic.

Imagine. Dream. Create.

Young artists are addicted, they spend hours and hours perfecting their craft. They can’t help themselves. Their parents are generally less enthused with their child’s artistic aspirations, wishing they’d go to school to become a doctor or a lawyer instead. The College for Creative Studies “Talk to your kids about art school” campaign plays up the duality of this relationship by mimicking anti-drug PSA’s.

Here is a preview of one of my new pieces. It is titled “Healed Heart” and is constructed with Raw canvas on wood with acrylic paint and gold leaf. The piece is 5’x5′ and will probably be in my next show.

Here is the piece and a detail shot. The detail is of the canvas that I cut and then stitched back together- there are 70 stitches representing the name of my wife “Ashley”.

A=1 stich, S=19, etc.
