Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Tiddlywinks in a Glass

To be honest, the translucent pink disks that fill this glass are probably not official Tiddlywinks, since Tiddlywinks is a competitive game involving four colors of winks, none of which is pink. I like looking at them though.

You say you want Pink Things? I got yer Pink Things right here. The Spring edition of the Affordable Art Fair has come and gone from NYC, until it returns in the fall, and we had a ton of fun this year seeing many old friend and lots of exciting new artworks all priced to own! Affordable Art!

Collect Art Yourself

With so very many galleries exhibiting at the fair from all over the globe, we like to distil it down by choosing our favorite Pink Artworks and bringing them to your face, which will give you a good idea of the scope of painting, photography, sculpture and multi-media that finds its way into the two levels of the Metropolitan Pavilion when the AAF rolls into town. Though the fair is over for now, you can still purchase many of these pieces, or others by the same artist, from the galleries via their brick and mortar locations, or websites. No worries; I am going to tell you everything you need to know.

Let’s head on up to the Pink Level, shall we?

The Soraya Cartategui Art Gallery (Spain) showcased many canvas works made with glitter, like this Crown by Camomile Hixon, who also did the Neon Pink Hot Lips, seen below.

They look quite like the Rocky Horror Picture Show lips, don’t cha think? Probably an influence.

Serigraph Screen Printed Perspex Layers

OK, here is some amazing stuff: Serigraph Screen Printed Perspex Layers by Kate Banazi, who is represented by Gas Gallery (London). The  visible layers of vibrant color combinations really made us go a little crazy with desire for this art.

No 13 Fleur Dans La Vie

This old-school looking oil painting is just a detail from a piece called No 13 Fleur Dans La Vie which I saw in the booth for Genuine Global Company of Seoul, Korea. Sadly, I seem to have missed the artists name.

Martina By Olivier Duhamel

Do you like Nudes? Who doesn’t, right? Check out this unique piece: Martina by Olivier Duhamel, which we found at the booth for La Lanta Gallery in Bangkok. Despite appearances, this fine lady is not an example of 3D Printing, but rather it is hand-assembled Acrylic Slices. Here’s another view:

To say that Martina created a substantial buzz in the booth is an understatement!

How much fun would it be to see this paint hanging in a Red Lobster Restaurant? I bet it would cause a few double-takes by the patronage. Fuck This Restaurant by Italian artist Giulia Maglionico sells for $2,300 and is available for purchase from Galleria Pananti in Florence, Italy.
