Skinner and G

On June 3, 2010 at the opening of the Strangers exhibit at the Bold Hype Gallery in New York, I met Skinner, one of the artists whose amazing works are featured prominently in the show.  He was beyond nice!  As you will see from the photos below, his works are extremely detailed and there is so much going on in them, you could stare at them for hours and still keep discovering new things.  We bonded over the fact that we are both from California – Skinner from Sacramento and myself from Los Angeles.  We also talked about our love of Amoeba music, the infamously huge record store located in both northern and southern California.  Skinner mentioned that Zerofriends has T-shirts for sale featuring his art and they are sure to become collectors items, so get them while you can.

I love this mural so much!  To give you a perspective of how big it is, we asked someone at the opening to take a picture of us in front of it, and you can see that as well as more of Skinner’s awesome work after the jump.  And if you’d like to see a video of Skinner making this really cool mural, check it out on Hi-Fructose.  Thanks again to Skinner for being so cool and for making such awesome art!  Take a look at his website (link is above) and marvel at his masterpieces!

Suitman aka Young Kim and G

On June 3, 2010 at the opening reception for “The New Grand Tour” at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York, I met one of the featured artists, Suitman aka Young Kim.  Born in Seoul, Korea, Young Kim adopted the “Suitman” persona as he began to feel alienated living in America with an Asian face and similarly, moving back to Asia with an American identity.  His photography deals with these subjects and in our own unique ways, I think we can all relate to this alienation.  When I met Suitman, he was super cool and not unsurprisingly, he donned his trademark suit to the opening.  Check out his photo gallery to see Suitman in his travels all over the world wearing his trusty suit.  Thanks again Suitman!

Suitman!

The New Grand Tour is on display until July 17, 2010 at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery located at 505 West 24th Street in New York.
