Sculptor and illustrator Jaime “Kalapusa” Margary is a Super Mario Brothers fan who created this amazing “life like” model of the games’ Piranha Plant character. I love this thing! You can see more of Jaime’s work at this link.
As part of its Brooklyn Ball Fundraising Event (April 22nd), the lobby of The Brooklyn Museum is currently displaying a twenty-foot-tall piñata in the shape of Andy Warhol’s head! This year’s Brooklyn Ball will celebrate the landmark partnership between the Brooklyn Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in creating the largest and most comprehensive costume collection in the world. This sounds so awesome; I wish I had a spare $500 lying around to blow on a ticket. As far as what Andy Warhol’s head made into a piñata has to do with anything, well, supposedly it will be filled with some kid of edible thing as it hangs amid “a series of food installations that also includes drinking paintings and suspended melting cheese heads.” Art!
