Exploring Isms….

Silently, as if in the background, constantly thinking and exploring. The simple can be complex, and yet still be a powerful thought, right? Isms? Capitalism? Sexism? Perhaps you should dig deeper to to get closer. – TMNK

Of the luxurious Gansevoort Hotel in New York. A collaborative effort, entitled C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me), by New York Street Artists AVONE and A so-called “nobody” TMNK was purchased for the Lobby of the Hotel. We’re still in the streets putting in work, but our art will greet you as soon as you walk in. If you’re in the Meat Packing District, stop by and say hi!

Street Art with an attitude? Seems a certain so-called “Rich Bitch” has been spotted on the streets of New York giving passers-by the finger.  Shout out to Mr. Brainwash, who is quite pleased with these RE-MIXES (wink). Rumor has it there are more to come. (wink).

Yeah we know the Affordable Art Fair is in NY this weekend. They didn’t include us. fcuk ‘em! We’re having an UNaffordable Art Fair, in da streets and here online. Go ahead, make us an offer we can’t refuse. (you have no idea, just how AFFORDABLE we are…right now.) :-)

These two art geniuses, AVONE (Destroy Rebuild) and TMNK, began working together in 2007, and after a brief hiatus have returned to the studio to create some rare “CLASSICS.” For collectors of Contemporary art and Street Street Art. UNinvited, but still AFFORDABLE, the two decided to host their own fair, in da streets (and here online). They’ll be releasing classics here, and in the streets (SoHo + Meat Packing District).
The Listed Prices might seem UNaffordable, but here’s the inside iShhh!, we’re accepting very AFFORDABLE offers…like a silent auction…So, if you see something ya like, make an offer (wink) you never know…Hollar!

In other words, life is not always a box of cherries. Sometimes we all have to deal with unnecessary crap (and our share of crappy people). You just got to do your best to keep it mov’n – forward. Believe me, I know it can be rough at times. In fact,  there is always going to be a certain amount of bullshit to deal with in our life. That’s what makes persevering, overcoming, and arriving successfully at your destination so sweet.

Rush Hour, da Collabo

Rush Hour – 30″ x 40″ mixed media on canvas (Anotha, tag team monster from TMNK + Destroy Rebuild) sold

The never ending race, paper chase, run for the money. The vacant stares, and drained souls, competing, trying to complete another lap, another day. The daily  running of the bulls “American” style. Where we, the human bulls, push, shove, and stampede our way to work and then back home. Running over each other to get there, then walking over each other once we’re there. Tic-Tock, some never really appreciating the minutes left on life’s clock, wasted, running too fast , just to get to the finish line with no real prize. On your mark, get set…Where ya going? Rush hour.

Shout out and much love to Noah and Kerri for pausing to add “Rush Hour” to their collection.
