Like all of the colorful, cast acyclic resin sculpture’s by artist Sam Tufnell, Dadadadadadada (2017) sits on a lighted pedestal to create a wildly appealing glow that really sets the work off. We spotted Pink Batman and his friends (see photo below) in the booth for Castle Fitizjohn Gallery at Art New York / Context Art Fairs at Pier 94. Below is the full work, which is a unique piece that sells for $5,500.
Fans of Andy Warhol, Comics, or Soup can get this colorful, rad design on a T-Shirt for just $19.95, or on other swag priced accordingly, at This Link!
Jamie and I were out at Coney Island to see the Fireworks on the Friday before the Friday before the Labor Day Weekend. As we sat eating hot dogs and fries at the boardwalk-adjacent tables by the Nathan’s that faces the beach, I noticed a Pink Panther earning some cash by posing for photos with tourists. Because a panther’s gotta make a living.
A new movie called BATMAN v SUPERMAN: Dawn of Justice opens today (March 25th) in theaters nationwide, but all I want to know is, in a battle between these two legendary Superheroes, how does Batman not get this Bat Ass handed to him by the Man of Steel? Because Batman, as super studly as he looks (I’d do it) has no real Super Powers. All of Batman’s tricks are gadgets he keeps in that utility belt thing of his. So, Kryptonite aside (and really, how is there even Kryptonite on the earth, after the entire planet Krypton was been completely obliterated? I ask yez.) there is just no way Superman is not picking up the Batman like he was a feather and chucking him off into outer space. Superman, FTW!
Anyway, whatever I’m missing about Kryptonite-infused arrows and whatever, I don’t care, because I really love both of these guys in tights equally. Just last night Geoffrey and I were hanging out at Taglialatella Galleries on 10th Ave checking out all kinds of cool Batman and Superman (plus, other Superheros) artworks for sale, plus free wine! Here are some of our favorite pieces from the show!
Here’s a huge piece featuring Superman By Mr. Brainwash. Ideal if you need to cover a lot of wall space.
Another, smaller Superman By Mr Brainwash. Who knew Superman was a fan of Campbell’s Soup?
Spiderman made an appearance.
In this piece, I think they are getting together to do some laundry.
Robin gets a token shout-out!
They are still friends!
Batman V Superman is up now at Taglialatella Galleries, Located at 231 Tenth Avenue, between 23rd and 24th Streets, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
I’m not sure who does the Dasani Air street art — which has been floating around the east village since 2013 — but this one (spotted on Bowery just below Houston) was new to me. I’ve seen it with Queen Elizabeth sucking on a canister of Dasani Air (clearly parody of Coca Cola brand’s Dasani Water) but Batman is pretty popular as well.
When we first entered Lyons Wier Gallery for Greg Haberny’s Burn All Crayons show, I was sure we were walking into some kind of old school punk rock exhibit (which maybe had less to do with the art’s crude, DIY visual aesthetic and more to do with the music that was playing in the gallery: always a good sign).
But despite its very punk rock vibe and (again, good on ya) Burn All Crayons juvenile visual aesthetic is directly connects with Haberny’s statement on the over medication children in America, a subject he knows of first hand. Many of the pieces in the exhibit draw on the artist’s personal experiences.
Taking a few lines from the exhibit’s Press Release, “Burn All Crayons epitomizes the diagnostic impact of [Haberny’s] own childhood and conveys a thought provoking dialogue that has a profoundly comedic overture bordering [on] the absurd.” Yeah, that pretty much says it.
This exhibit is only up for another week or so, and I recommend it highly.
Greg Haberny’s Burn All Crayons will be on Exhibit Through October 5th, 2013 at Lyons Wier Gallery, Located at 542 West 24 Street in the Chelsea Gallery District. Gallery Hours are Tuesday -Saturday 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
