T. Shirt x UR New York – Reebok Classic Sessions

February 14, 2012

Had the pleasure of attending the homie Shirt’s Reebok event last week in the LES. Got to meet the rest of his camp who I’ve only known via Twitter and song lyrics up until then and chop it up. Couple of familiar faces in the crowd as well. It was a chill event; he performed a few joints off his new project “The Fuck” and I even got a free pair of Reeboks. Can’t complain.

Check out the video above of the homies Shirt and 2ESAE & Ski of UR New York explaining what exactly a “Classic” is to them and what inspires them, drives them to keep pushing foward in their respective forms of art.

Super shout out to the whole crew!

Well said. Young Guru Compares New Rappers/Producers and their introduction to Hip Hop and Digging culture to old school Graffiti culture and breaks down the difference between their upbringing and appreciation for the culture as opposed to those who experienced it and paid dues differently early on in the game.

New KAWS Exhibit In NYC.

November 13, 2008

Not really big on Kaws, never have been but I like these new canvases from his new gallery showcase. Got blessed with a fold out poster invitation (above) that I put up at my desk at work.

His stuff seems a bit too “Simpsons”-ish for me to feel it but dope is dope and these last few pieces have been dope none the less. Feeling the colors. Very “Saved By The Bell” or Trapper Keeper-ish, which is probably why I like them so much.

If you’re interested in checking out the gallery it’s open now til December 23rd at the Gering & Lopez Gallery.

100 Scores and 8 Years Later…

Legendary pop-artist Ron English has reappropriated a classic portrait of former American president Abraham Lincoln in the likeness of Obama. Two hundred 18″ x 24″ prints, priced at $200 are available for pre-order now at Upper Playground.

$200 is a lot to ask in my opinion, but I found this to be both erie and dope at the same time.

Marilyn Minter Supreme Decks

April 2, 2008


Marilyn Minter for Supreme

American Artist Marilyn Minter was born in 1948 in Louisiana and raised in Florida.

In the late 70’s after pursuing her MFA at Syracuse University, Minter moved to NYC where she taught at a Catholic boys school and became mixed up with the NY club scene. These experiences influenced her return to the Art world and in 1989 she produced her first show, which was inspired by hardcore pornography. With harsh criticism from feminists, Minter pursued with her work binding imagery from porn videos and beauty advertisements.

In addition to her work with photography, Minter creates paintings which reflect a photo-realist method.

In 2006 Minter collaborated with Creative Time and bought ad space in Manhattan’s gallery neighborhood of Chelsea. She hung four of her visually lush shoe images originally shot for fashion magazines, transcending the fashion ideal back to the human form, attempting to make the fashion image fresh and compelling.

Supreme will release a series of limited edition skateboard decks designed by Marilyn Minter. The series will consist of three decks designed by Ms. Minter.

Available at the NY and LA stores on April 10th and online April 17th.

Japan will release the project on April 12th.

I don’t skate but I enjoyed the photography. If I had money in this economy to blow, I’d probably cop. But Bush is President still so you know how that goes.
