Last night, February 16th, I found myself at the MF Gallery in Brooklyn to check out their opening showcasing artists @LamourSupreme , Twerps, ScarecrowOven, Death Head and Frank Russo.
This was my first time to venture to the space which looks great from the street below. Live paining of ‘Space Friends’ was happening upon entering by none other than @LamourSupreme , partner in crime Greg, creator of Twerps and Mishka and another talented chap, Death Head. Those in the neighborhood should swing by and scope the goods.

Many bodies politely crowded into the Jonathan Levine Gallery on opening night to catch a glimpse at two very different shows. The lovely Olek presented us with an on-site installation, ‘The End is Far’ accompanied by live performance throughout the space. Whilst a Dutchman who’s characters and apparel have me hooked, Parra, held our attention with, 'Tracy had a Hard Sunday’. Head over to the gallery now through March 23 to see the amazing work for yourselves.

On the evening of February 1st, I could be found at a fancy event happening in the Lincoln Center. This was my first time at the ballet and I wasn’t disappointed. I was stoked to see the massive tower Faile had created for ‘Les Ballets des Faile’. I had been lurking their photos for weeks before I got up close and personal. It’s amazing. Artworks accompanied the tower throughout the space and all in attendance to the show walked away with a mini block of Faile. My piece is sitting happily on my shelf at home. They did a great job on this project and I look forward to seeing what’s next.

It’s hard to believe that a week has passed since the whirlwind of Art Basel in Miami. Parties, pop-ups, parking issues, can’t contain my excitement and now my phone is dead issues, art fairs, getting lost at said art fairs and losing all sense of time stalking Wynwood to scope walls and drink Panther Coffee. What happened in Miami, stays in Miami. Hit the jump for a full photo slide show of my experience there.

Last Friday night, 68 Lexington was buzzing at the opening reception of Fountain Art Fair. Photographers, DJ’s, a few naked ladies and a lot of good vibes. Rad prints were taking up space at Canadian Station16 Shop including Stikki Peaches, and a guy from my London street stalking years, AC.E. En Masse held the attention of many with their collaborative efforts throughout the night. Up high, the rafters of the armory housed an installation curated by Mighty Tanaka and Robots Will Kill. Good times. Above is my point of view.

Support 'TILT Warning Customs' in their Pinball Mission via Kickstarter

NEW POST: Another push for a project we posted about HERE a litle while back… Tilt Warning Customs have a really amazing project they want to make happen and need your help. This is super cool and an opportunity to get nostalgic. Their vision is to create a pinball arcade art installation starting with five restored vintage 1970s pinball machines. Time to name drop the artists involved. These guys; @frankkozik, Coop, @alexpardee, Jeremy Fish and Sam Flores. Rad!!
The goal is to open the installation at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco, CA, USA in late Summer/early Fall of 2014, and then hit the road, taking the show to various spaces both in the US and internationally. Another option may be to scout a larger venue in SF to continue to build the project there. There is just over a week to donate via Kickstarter. Above is a word from Mr. Kozik, Be generous. Pretty please. http://dlvr.it/32P5L5
