So, You Think I’m a NOBODY? A Message From My Collectors @ NYCC

1xRUN_Imanobody

So Mr. & Mrs. Museum acquisition director, as you did with his oft compared to predecessor Jean Michel Basquiat, you think TMNK is just some NOBODY, unworthy of your recognition or  wall space. Hmmm, well it seem collectors @ NYCC 2011 (as well as many of them from around the world) have a message for you:

1. You’re sooooooo wrong…AGAIN…

2. F#%K you, and your walls, he’s on mine now!

 

 

Museum Cites the Work of Two NYC Street Artists in “Taking Art to The Streets”

SWOON_TMNK

In a survey of the current state of street art, “Taking Art to The Streets,” The New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut cited the works of New York Street artists Swoon and TMNK (aka Nobody). A surprising honor to say the least. I mean, Swoon, well her work is already in the Moma and MoCA in LA as well, just to mention a few. But your boyyyeeee, aka me, well I’m a NOBODY (or am I?).

Art is my weapon, and it seems, Im not shooting blanks after all. Now if we could only grab the attention of the MoMA and the Guggenheim, hell, or even the New Museum.

I love MoMA

It’s not everyday that a New York Street Artist gets to come to Norway and be commissioned to transform an American Icon, into an Urban Contemporary work of art. I’m in a Museum of Modern Art stae of mind right now (MoMA baby!!!). Well, this is just a sneak peek, I better get back to work. This is crazy, but I’m going all in!

Only this ain’t a movie dawg. It”s the real life story of a kid from the hood who dreams of becoming a famous artist. He’s flown to Norway for a solo show. On the morning of that solo show, he awakens to find himself and his work featured on the front page of the newspaper there. and a three full pages inside about him and his work.

Yo ART WORLD, Be Afraid, BE VERY AFRAID. Because the art world bad boys AVONE + TMNK are at it again. Yes, we each do the damn thing on our own, each with our own unique style of art. He Destroys and Rebuilds, and me, well I’m just a NOBODY who, well, YOU KNOW WHAT I DO (wink). Any way, this is a warning. PLEASE DO NOT SLEEP ON EITHER of US. And our COLLABOS. Get ‘em while we got ‘em. CAUTION, the art world betta recognize!

Look, Up in the Sky, It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane…

Nahhhh, It’s just your Boyyyyeee OLD SKOOLIN for the Kids. This one is titled SUPER _ _ _ _ _ _. I’ll leave it to future generations to fill in the blanks. I’ll let the youths of tomorrow decide whether, given the power of our art, our culture, did we inspired a generation of SUPER FATHERs? MOTHERs? DOCTORs? LAWYERs.? Or…? Or did we simply throw our hands in the air (along with our voices) and wave them like we just didn’t care? – TMNK
