Day 5 at PATRON . . .

After  a few days of working at the Soho Patron location I have managed to cut the hell out of everything I could find.  Images of Madonna, Francois Sagat, and Eric from True Blood (also known as Alexander Skarsgård) have all be cut. Here are some pictures from the last few days.

So many Francois Sagat

Organized desk

Alexander Skarsgård, he'd make a good James Bond.

At the end of the day . . . messy floor.
My last day is Tuesday and then my finished piece will go on eBay.  I'll post a link to my piece asap. Stay warm friends.

Patron's "Simply Perfect" Art Project

My first day at Patron was strange to say the least.  Aside from cutting out images for 8 hours straight, talking to some hot chick named Monica, and not eating all day . . . I got a long distance email from a "friend" who wants to get drinks soon.  It was all I could think about all day ... Christmas came early this year.

Tote bag full of shit to cut.  Trust me its alot!!!

This is a detail of the window installation to Patron.

Christmas came early . . . here's a clue

A fan wrote me a letter on my first day at Patron!  If you can read it, please let me know what it says.

If you can name the magazine or ad campaign where I got the image of this guy in a pink suit I will give you a piece of art.


My studio floor.

Art Basel 2011 and everything else ...

I returned to New York with a head (and iPhone) filled with images and opinions about ART BASEL, Art Miami, PULSE, and Nada.  Overall, I felt the only work that was memorable was Nick Cave's installation at Art Basel.  As for the rest of the fairs ... each one had it's issues but my favorite was PULSE.  Each booth seemed to have an incredible mix of young artist with a refreshing perspective.  While I was there I was able to reconnect with some gallerist and I ran into some curators from NY.  As you can see from the pics below, I had a great time ...

On my way to Miami. I was alone until a family with a crying baby sat next to me.  The damn kid cried the whole time and the parents did nothing!  I wanted to stab them for two hours and 34 minutes.

The amazing NICK CAVE. I saw these and almost died.

Detail pic from above.

Another Nick Cave.  Feels very 70's.

My love of superheroes made me take a pic.  It was literally being purchased as I took this pic.  Reminds me of the aging superhero installation that the Whitney had a few years back. Jason Yarmosky rocks!

Augusto Esquivel . . . just buttons and strings. AMAZING

TOM SACHS. Loved it.

Last day there was spent on the beach.  Some much needed beach time was required considering the cold weather I was about to re-enter when I got back to New York.
