“How To Disappear Completely” by Brian Adam Douglas
By the time you read this post, “How To Disappear Completely” by Brian Adam Douglas (who you may also know as street artist Elbow Toe) will have closed. I made it over to the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York literally hours before it closed on the final day of the exhibit, so I hope this post will encourage you to look up more of Brian’s art. If you only know the work of his alter ego Elbow Toe, you will be very impressed. On the streets, Elbow Toe gets up high and low with funny little quotations (There is a crack in the bubble that is so damn large, that I could swim forever in this open space” – Elbow Toe, for example) and in a gallery setting, his works are extremely complex with vivid detail and tons of things going on inside his works. You can click on the image to enlarge and you will get a glimpse of what I am talking about. You will definitely want to prioritize seeing his next show, which we can hope will be soon.

Happy birthday to artist Elbow Toe! Before According2g.com existed, I remember I’d be walking down the streets of New York and out of the corner of my eye, I’d see a phrase written on a wall and I wasn’t sure what was going on. One phrase that sticks out in my mind was “It’s a sad day for somedays.” The words always made me smile and after doing investigative research, I came to discover those words were written by Elbow Toe. In addition to the work he puts on the streets, Elbow Toe is an incredibly talented fine artist (as you can see from the photo above). Happy birthday, ET!
