Buff Monster’s Melt With Me

A couple of weekends ago, Brian & I stopped by ‘Melt With Me’, Buff Monster’s solo exhibition at the Bowery. I’m a fan of his work because 1- Pink and 2- I love the melty motifs. The murals that he’s done all over lower Manhattan are awesome but the ones that really pop are in Bushwick – Brooklyn’s mini Wynwood walls.

Toiletpaper Paradise

5:45 pm. It’s Valentine’s Day. Did Brian make reservations at a romantic, dimly-lit restaurant with a three-course, pre-fix Lover’s Day Special? Nope! We headed down to Hudson Street to view the Toiletpaper Paradise exhibit at the Cadillac House.

It’s the best date ever. The installation is an interactive, visual clusterfuck. It feels like I’m in Ikea on acid and it’s amazing. Click through for more pics!

Donald Robertson x Story!

After work, Brian and I trekked to the west side to check out Donald Robertson’s take over of Story, this really cool boutique/gallery hybrid in Chelsea. If you have time this week, you should definitely check it out – the place was wall to wall Donald. Not only did his artwork fully occupy the space but Donald himself was also there to sign his book, Mitford at the Fashion Zoo! I love his work – it’s so fun and tongue-in-cheek. I think that he has tapped this perfect formula of being honest with his work as an artist and at the same time, still gain popularity on social media. And he looks like he has so much fun doing it! The space had everything of his from pins, iron-on embroideries, his book Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, to phone cases, sunglasses, t-shirts, and original work by the artist himself.

Wes Anderson Art Show

Hypebeasts. I’ve heard of the term thrown around but only when anything Supreme, Kanye West, or Jordans are involved. A whole fandom whose admiration for something stems from its popularity. I guess you could say that I’m lucky in a sense that a lot of things I love and admire have been pretty untouched by the dreaded mindless minions. Until now, at least.

Philippe Parreno: H(N)YPN(Y)OSIS

If you’re looking for something to do on a humid Friday night, consider the Philippe Parreno installation at the Park Avenue Armory.

The show just opened on June 10th & I dragged Brian into it this past Friday for post work libations with a side of art appreciation.
