Jerkface Donuts

Jerkface is one of my favorite artists. One day as Brian and I were taking photographs in front of one of his walls in Bushwick, this random black SUV pulled up and the driver handed us a couple of Jerkface postcards – it was the artist himself! “Nostalgic and submersive, Jerkface is a New York-based artist most widely recognized for his playful re-imagination of pop culture iconogaphy… Unleashing the spirit of life through his curated compositions, the exhibition evokes a collective sense of joy, playfulness, and innocence.” – an excerpt from Jerkface Donuts – a relatively small exhibit presented by Over the Influence. We tried to buy some prints but they were all sold out so we bought a book instead (sad!) If you missed it, click through to see photos!

National Donut Day

My first fun-filled Summer Friday of the season coincided with National Donut Day. I went low-cal and opted to visit Jerkface’s Donut mural instead of eating the actual sweet confection. The rest of the day was spent graffiti hunting in lower Manhattan (including David Cho’s work-in-progress at the Bowery Wall) and punctuated by a stop at the ticketed All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream celebration at Bryant Park (but not before stopping by Dominique Ansel’s Bakery for the freshly made madeleines. How is a person supposed to lose weight in this damn city with all these events? ALSO BIG DEAL SIDE BAR: I MET MARTHA COOPER & TOOK A PHOTO WITH HER (OBVS) AND SHE TOOK A PHOTO OF ME (eek!!!)
