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!

Loving this!  However, by the time you see this post, there’s a good chance someone will have destroyed it.

I know that Screwtape is a fan of According2g and vice versa.  Maybe one day you’ll see an interview with Mr. Screwtape on this site.  🙂

Until then, Screwtape The World!

At the Dorien Grey Gallery in New York, they are showcasing an exhibit called “Street Artists Unite” which features works by Army of One, AV ONE, BTA, COPE2, CRASH, ENX, Fumero, Kid Lew, Screwtape, SEE One, Chris Stain, TMNK, and Robots Will Kill and collaborations with Hank O’Neil (also known as XCIA).

If you are a lover of street art, the show is definitely worth checking out.  If you are a collector of street art, you’re not going to be too fond of this show.  Some of these doctored photo canvases are selling for upwards of $8,000!  Is the gallery delusional or are they just trying to capitalize on the stupidity of inexperienced buyers?  I am not really sure which it is but I assure you if $8,000 is your contemporary/street art budget, I can hook you up for that kind of money.  Hell, you can get some type of work of art from Banksy, arguably the most famous street artist in the world, for a cheaper price!

Not all prices in the gallery will make your butt hole hurt, however.  I invite you to form your own opinion at the Dorien Grey Gallery, located at 437 East 9th Street at Avenue A.
