the brooklyn historical society is showcasing, "the disappering face of brooklyn's storefronts," a new exhibit that documents the rapidly declining amount of mom and pop stores. historical perspective is just another reason to apprecite the urban deacy that i am obssesed with. i think somebody should have an exhibit on the mispelling of signs in bkln. when i lived there, i rented movies from winter wideo for years.
just came across somthing, and i wanted to intentionally not post it. the only reason im even writing this is so that everyone knows what a chump i think he is. when you dont even make your artwork anymore or really dont even come up with new ideas anymore- then you my friend, are not an artist. you are an interior designer. you are washed up. kick rocks jeff koons.
more photorealism by adam stennett. this stuff is awesome! i love the realistic way that he paints water. dreaming about water is supposed to symbolize spirituality, and i couldnt agree more with stennett that spirituality is just a bottle of cough syrup away. ha! check his site for larger photos.

no less than seven floating vessels are making their way down the hudson, to finally dock at Deitch Pojects for swoons second major installation. she has teamed up with a famous playwright and the band dark, dark, dark and they are stopping along the way to perform for communities along the water. swoon never ceases to amaze me. more information here.

i absolutely love the talent and time that it takes to create photorealism paintings. now, if that just happens to be a van, and that van just happens to have some graff on it, then im pretty much freaking out. maybe its the fact that i lived in brooklyn, where every van looks like this, but this represents a real side of society that i do see as picturesque, and beautiful. kevincyr has a lot of work and his site will keep you busy for hours.
