Seems that a certain Artist Samuel Martin left a piece of art on the streets, which was found by a nobody, and further enhanced by Andy “AVONE” Warhol. Oh, if YOU want it, make an offer it;s on ebay….

Beauty and The Streets – (24″ x 48″ mixed media collage/screenprint and oxidation on brick panel)

This is our newest collaborative effort. 24″ x 48″ on brick panel. It is what it is, beauty and the streets. (AVONE was the first on the streets to be using the brick panels, and a NOBODY like your boyyeee introduced oxidized rust to the game) . And the history books will show the depth of our urban contemporary art genius. A thing of beauty, But don’t take our word for it, what do YOU think? – TMNK

I wish. Because 24 hardly seems enough. But first shout out to my dude Avone, who built the 10′ x 10′ cancer we’re working on. Can’t wait to show it to the client. Should be finished by next week. Now I’m back in my studio still creating. Did I mentionbi was up at 6:00am. The city, and me, never sleep.

Objective journalism, or more double talk? Seems The racial divide continues to grow every time some ill-informed pinhead opens his or her mouth. It’s 2010, and still race is  a factor? Damn, SAMO.

Time To Show and Prove

This is more than an art exhibit. This is about the commitment of two artists to enrich their communities and others around them. The idea behind SHOW and PROVE was to provide a few emerging talented artists with an opportunity to showcase their work, and at the same time give something back to the community that has inspired and supported our collective growth. Avone, of Destroy and Rebuild, TMNK (aka nobody), and LaunchPad founder Michael Kunitzky, invite you to join them and the talented ensemble of artists they will be presenting for an evening of art, music , food, and creative synergy.

I live and paint in the company of so many talented artists (friends), my contemporaries, that normally I soak up inspiration from them. But yesterday, after the gentle prodding of my boy AV, I went to the Brooklyn Museum with my son. AV and I had attempted to check it out together the day before, but got there minutes before closing.

It was interesting to see what these two had done together. And I was hoping to be knocked over by their “Collabos.” Perhaps arrogant of me to say, but, I really think the collabos done by AVONE and myself are better. LOL. But I guess we leave that to the art critics and the history books to decide.

Some would say getting there takes practice, practice practice. We say it takes RELENTLESS DETERMINATION.

Uh Oooooooooh…

Get ‘em while we got ‘em. CAUTION, the art world betta recognize!
