Wow! What an honor to be immortalized by the amazing artist Carl ‘Screwtape’ Paoli. Carl is a jack of all trades who has found success in Hollywood as a stuntman, is a film-maker and documentarian and he’s also an artist whose work has been shown in the streets as well as galleries all over the world. He presented me with a painting of myself this weekend and I am both thankful and humbled to be painted by such a great talent. Please visit his website (link will open in a new window) and follow him on Instagram at IM_Screwtape. He often posts time-lapse videos that document his paintings and they will blow your mind. Thanks again Screwtape!!! I am so honored!

Mickey Mantle by Dick Perez
If you’re a fan of baseball, you must check out “An Exhibition of Baseball’s Finest” by Dick Perez at the Agora Gallery in New York. If you collected baseball cards in the 1980s, you’ll surely know Dick Perez’ work as he painted Donruss’ Diamond Kings series.
Lou Gehrig by Dick Perez
In this exhibit, Perez has paid tribute to some of the greatest ball players to ever grace the field including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson and the list goes on. Each oil painting will immediately transport you into a legendary era gone by and you can nearly taste peanuts and Cracker Jacks as you walk through the gallery.

Airan Kang – Luminous Words
If you are in New York, you should head over to the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery to check out the latest exhibition from Korean artist Airan Kang. “Luminous Words” features paintings mixed with LED displays and it’s a visual treat.
Closeup of the neon bookshelf.
These stacks of books (which are very large in person) are hand painted and where you see white spines in the photos (above and below) are where an LED projection scrolls across giving the viewer a chance to further contemplate the subject mater of these books.
“Luminous Words” by Airan Kang is showing at Bryce Wolkowitz (located at 505 West 24th Street) in Manhattan through April 6, 2013. Don’t miss it!

Lady Gaga by Ari Lankin
New York! Ari Lankin’s latest solo exhibition is now showing at Stumble Upon in New York. I love Ari Lankin’s work so much as he is one of he few artists around these days who is a true master of many styles. If you follow Ari Lankin’s work you’ve surely seen the fascinating videos on his official website where he shows you the process of his works from inception to completion. If you haven’t, the link in that last sentence will open in a new window – so get to clicking! I’ve been fortunate to get to know Ari as a result of this blog and I am so thankful. Ari is a prince of a guy who is both super cool extremely intelligent to talk to.
Emotional Architecture by Ari Lankin
This exhibit is the first time so many styles of his work have been shown in the same exhibit and it’s pretty bad ass to be so young and talented and already be having a retrospective of his work. The exhibit will be up until mid-April, 2012 at Stumble Upon HQ (73 Spring Street between Crosby and Lafayette) in New York by appointment only. Email email@example.com to check out this exhibit and I highly recommend it!

Georgia O'Keefe - Cow's Skull - Red, White and Blue
Happy birthday to the great artist Georgia O’Keefe. I admit, she is not one of my very favorites, but I do think her work is brilliant. I also admit that knowing she was heavily inspired by the female body, I love seeing her works in a museum and shouting out “vagina!” It keeps myself amused and it keeps people around me on their toes. That keeps life interesting, according2g.
