I’ve been seeing in various social media that users are reporting the death of artist Anton Kandinsky.  Several art galleries have also taken to posting “RIP Anton Kandinsky,” so there must be truth to the story.  This is very sad.  I really like Kandinsky’s art as it provides good social commentary for the gluttonous times we live in.  The details of his passing are unknown, but once again, users have posted that he died in his New York studio.  I met Kandinsky at one of his art openings once and he was very nice.  I was wearing a T-shirt by fellow artist Homo Riot and he said that he liked the shirt. He was worried that in the selfie I took of us that I didn’t get enough of the art in the background so he insisted on taking a second photo.  If you are unfamiliar with his art, I encourage you to look it up as you will find it’s very cool. Rest in peace Anton!  🙁

Head on over to White Box in New York to see a great exhibit that examines the times we live in.  “China-Ism II: Democracy Or Economy” features art primarily by Anton S. Kandinsky, but there are also some photos by recently imprisoned (and now released) Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.

I was fortunate enough to meet Anton S. Kandinsky at the opening night reception and he was really cool. You can see a photo of us (including me in my Homo Riot T-shirt) after the jump.

If you are in the New York area, you have to check out Anton S. Kandinsky’s exhibit “La Roulette En Rose” at CATM in Chelsea.  His art speaks volumes for the thoughts in the mind of the masses.  I think you’ll get the idea of how cool this exhibit is from the following pictures.
