Rare abstract emotions for a fetish planet

Brilliant new Slick It Up commercials by David Mason & Tim Palen.

They are delicate like a diamond, 
rough as a cherry blossom, 
like a filthy mouth that utters deep widsom

Last fall, I was commissioned by Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck to make drawings for the poster of his brand new Autumn/Winter 2011 collection entitled "Hand on Heart". I was thrilled to work on this project because I love Walter's work and personally felt very connected to show's themes. "Hand on Heart" is all about friendship, interconnectedness, awakening to expanded consciousness and the feeling that something big is coming. Above is the official poster for the January 21st show during Paris fashion week. And so below is an exclusive look at the complete set of drawings I made, inspired by and incorporating elements from Walter's new collection. (All drawings are ink on paper, 14 x 17 in)

Slava and I recently flew back to New York after spending the holidays with friends and family in Colorado;

de-icing planes in Denver

Jersey below me, new years eve.

Before leaving, our friend Josh gave us a jar of his homemade fruit compote syrup. I tucked it in the middle of my clothes in my checked baggage so it wouldn't break... Back home in New York while I was starting to unpack I ran across a notice that TSA had inspected my luggage. As I continued to unpack I found out just how dangerously suspect my jar of fruit syrup was! The jar was completely mummified in some kind of padding and TSA packing tape! It's like they built a bomb shelter around it. It looks so ridiculous, that Slava and I have declared it a ready-made piece of art and intend to keep it this way.

By comparison, here's a look at another jar that was not wrapped (non-terrorist/explodable)

Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. All works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until purchased. All proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS.

Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving the legacy -- because AIDS IS NOT OVER!

over 1400 participating artists including:
Vito Acconci, Michael Alago, John Baldessari, Ross Bleckner, AA Bronson, Aaron Cobbett, Wayne Coe, Louise Fishman, Robert Flynt, Peter Griffin, Ann Hamilton, Mary Heilmann, Scott Hug, Simen Johan, Brian Kenny, Jeff Koons, Scooter LaForge, Glenn Ligon, Marilyn Minter, Slava Mogutin, Yoko Ono, Gio Black Peter, David Reed, Richard Renaldi, Robert W. Richards, Deam Sameshima, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Bill Viola, John Waters and many more.
