“King Of Dung”,Watercolor, gouache, ink, tea, coffee, gold leaf, bourbon, beetle juice
"Sleep With The Waves", Watercolor, Gouache, Ink, Tea 12x12
"Cicada King",Watercolor, Gouache, Pencil, Ink, Goldleaf 
"The Sea Chantey Club", Watercolor, Gouache, Ink, Tea

So rad and so detailed. Same vein as Wes Lang these works are like romantic, comical, dark, lyrical, postcards from a sea grave. These precise and symmetrical relics are a true treasure.

"Although I grew up near the sea—never more than an hour away—I never really gave it much thought. In fact my interests laid in the opposite: the hills, the desert, the prairie. But the sea wore on me; I can't go anywhere without passing over the Puget Sound. I am surrounded by a rich maritime history and I am surrounded by the mysterious life in these cold waters. But really I am fascinated, inspired by, and concerned for all of nature. As for the characters I have painted, they are just dirty dead sailors."

You know when a work of art is so astounding it forces the breath out of your body into a simple "whooooaaaa." These are some of those works, by Jen Stark. Her paper cut sculptures are imagination redefined...they take you to a childhood fantasy beyond what you ever thought someone could create from such a simple material. Enjoy.

Wei Wei in N.Y.

Ai Wei Wei
Circle of Animals/ Zodiac Heads
NEW YORK, NY – 05.02.11 - 07.15.11

Pulitzer Fountain at Grand Army Plaza, Central Park

Its Wei Wei too hot to go today (already 95 F outside in NYC today) but if you are in New York some time in the above dates, go check out Wei Wei's outdoor sculptural exhibition. Ai Wei Wei is one of the most successful artists in China right now and also recently racked up a tons of headlines due to his recent release from detention for tax evasion. 


A new fav of mine. Check him out at http://www.brian-rea.org/

This guy is amazing. After not seeing the art he wanted to see at recent Biennials, he just created 100 artists of his own, and had one himself!
Hilarious and Genius.
