On April 29, 2010 at the opening reception for artist Mark Ryden‘s latest exhibition: The Gay 90s Olde Tyme Art Show at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in Chelsea, I met the brilliant artist. For the non-art people reading this site, he designed Michael Jackson’s “Dangerous” album cover; however, definitely check out his other work – it’s incredible! If you are specifically interested in the album cover art he’s designed, here you go. He was super nice and also super mobbed. I always sort of feel bad for artists at their own openings as every single person wants a piece of you, so it’s hard to enjoy the reactions of people seeing your work for the first time. Well, Mr. Ryden, if you indeed missed it, everyone I spoke to in the gallery loved it with a capital L. Thanks again for enriching my life with really inspiring art and being so nice. And New Yorkers – the exhibit runs through June 5, 2010, so don’t miss it. Photos from the exhibit are coming soon. Stay tuned.
