The other night at an art opening, I ran into fellow artist Gilbert Oh.  As of this writing, I’ve only seen one of his works in person (see below) and I fell in love with it instantly.  If you love this work as much as I do, you should check out Gilbert Oh’s official site, where you can see many more great images from his 2010 series “Moulin Rouge.”  Being familiar with his works, I’d never met the man behind the paintings. When we were talking, I was so glad to be able to match the face with the works.  Gilbert was really nice in our conversation, which consisted of our favorite topic – art!  Thanks again, Gilbert!

I Need Your Skull at the MF Gallery

The MF Gallery in Brooklyn has an amazing exhibit that is showing now through June 20, 2010 called “I Need Your Skull.”  The exhibit boasts dozens of artist renderings of skulls in all shapes, sizes, styles, mediums and colors.  It’s really cool!  The 30 plus international artists in the exhibit are as unique as the pieces they’ve created and the results are stunning.  When I toured the gallery, Martina Russo (the M in MF Gallery) told me that the gallery has started its most ambitious project yet – they are building a 20 foot 3-D skull to affix to the top of the building!  I saw a sketch of the skull design and it’s going to be really awesome!  All proceeds from the sales of the works in “I Need Your Skull” will be going towards the manifestation of their skull vision.  Once this exhibit closes, the following exhibit will be Zombies!  If it’s anything like “I Need Your Skull,” it’s going to be wonderful.  Thanks again to Martina for being so cool.  The MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street in Brooklyn.  You can see some more photos of this great exhibit either by clicking on the MF Gallery link above or by visiting Gail’s Rad Blog.
