Dress Code by Robert Deyber
I love Robert Deyber’s paintings. In addition to the realist visuals you see when looking at his work, each painting is the depiction of a play on words. He is currently showing a new body of paintings at the Martin Lawrence Galleries in New York, all of which will make you smile at their cleverness. A fun fact about Robert Deyber – he made the cover art for Tom Petty’s “Highway Companion” album.

I told you!
Club House by Robert Deyber
At the opening night reception, one of the desperate housewives of (insert city here) reality tv shows were filming at the gallery and moments before I spoke with Robert Deyber, I witnessed him signing his life away in consent forms (half kidding). It was quite amusing. Robert was extremely cool and posed for a photo with me. You can see it after the jump. We can only assume that he also posed for photos with the desperate housewives. Hopefully they bought some art!
This exhibit will be up through July 2013 and this location of Martin Lawrence Galleries is at 457 West Broadway in Manhattan.

NYC! Return to the glory days of the New York art scene and check out the latest exhibition of Mark Kostabi’s work at Martin Lawrence Galleries. Though I’ve been to Kostabi World many times, this the first proper exhibit I’ve seen of Mark Kostabi’s art and seeing so many works in one space was a really great visual experience.
Works varying in size, paintings, drawings and sculptures are on display and I would estimate that there are over 30 paintings in the exhibit. As so often featured in Mark Kostabi’s work, there are subliminal tributes to legendary artists past and present, pictures within pictures and there are clever word plays disguised in the action that takes place in the portraits.
The gallery also has works on display by Keith Haring, Picasso, Murakami and Warhol. So make sure you stop by and see these art all-stars!
Martin Lawrence Galleries is located at 457 West Broadway in New York. Art by Mark Kostabi will be showing through the end of 2012. Don’t miss it!
