Let's talk about art ba-by. (I'm in a singing mood today)
I just read an article in New York Magazine about Dash Snow. The mag caught my attention because it has 3 guys in bed and the headline says Warhol's Children. I had to read it because I'm a huge fan of Warhol and I had to see what all the fuss was about on this Snow character. (As a side note, I don't love everything Warhol has done, but he was an innovator and some fun stuff came out from his Factory.)
Read the article, and we'll talk. I will say this, I'm not seriously offended by the art these guys do, I'm mad that this kind of thing gets pawned off as art. These guys come off as spoiled, uninspired boy men. Being a drug freak doesn't make you an artist. These "Hamsters Nests" is simply annoying and sounds like trust fund kids doing drugs because that's all they have to do in life. Oh poor rich kids. Can you tell I'm upset? This is not NYC art scene at it's best.
Here is something I really love now. This is Marcel Dzarma. LOVE his work. This is art that is real to me. He comes from Winnipeg but now lives in the Big Apple. Well he probably really lives in Brooklyn but who would want to live near Snow anyway.
