Art Basel: An Event For The Stuck UP?

So untrue, yet true. The art world has long had a reputation for being run by what some would call “stuck up snobs.” While I’m sure there are a few, NOT TRUE with respect to some of the most prominent collectors. I’ve been rubbing shoulders in recent weeks with Art World’s Royalty, movers and shakers. And I’ve found them to be passionate about art in ALL of it’s manifestations, including Street Art. And supportive and generous as well.

But Street Artists, there’s a group that in general wherever they go are so STUCK UP. And thanks to Tony Goldman’s STUCK UP wall, now there is a place for all of them to hang out together. Art Basel is a grand event for Art, and now there is finally a place for those who take pride in being Stuck Up!

Refusing to Die. Refusing to Grow Up.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. Hmmmm.

Inspiring words to wake up to, and live by. – Thanks Mr. Picasso. :-) – TMNK

Hmmm. Rumor has it that a very special “Cricket” and a certain New York City Street Artist were seen chatting about the beautiful white walls of the Sagamore getting a little love from certain “SOMEBODY.” Hmmm Art Basel is going to be Very, Very Interesting. – TMNK

It’s raining outside. And for some sorrow and pain has caused it to rain inside as well. Someone needs to know this morning, this too shall pass. And In the future, there will be brighter days. That someone is me, and perhaps it’s you too. Brighter Days more than a paintng, a reminder to reach for the joy within and around you.

Your Place or Mine? (Actually, I like to do it in the streets – �LOL) �However, you can have your choice of street artists to sleep with, and it doesn’t involve any of the complications of seduction by booking a room at Hotel Des Arts.

As A Man (or woman) Speaketh

Spoken Word – (24″ x 48″ acrylic + enamel on unstretched canvas – TMNK)

Watch what you say to me. But more importantly watch what you say to yourself. Words have prophetic profound power. Crosswords, bring about confusion and impede progress. Fears sabotage the plans of man and can render you impudent. But positive encouraging affirmations, consumed, repeated, and believed produce a lean mean achieving machine.

Too many CANT’S and not enough ANTS!!! I think I can. I think I can. I think I….. DAMN IT, I KNOW I CAN, AND WILL aka Move Beyatchhhes, Get Out The Way!! - TMNK
