Better be careful when reaching into this glazed ceramic bowl for a handful of chips or nuts, because you might be dipping your hand into the gaping maw of a big blue Shark!
Dubbed the ‘Shark Attack Snack Bowl‘ by me, this visually delightful and seriously functional bowl was spotted in the booth for Italian decorative glassware manufacturer Egizia 1949, which is based in Tuscany. Additional examples of their their glassware can be seen in the background of the first photo in this post.
Sadly, I was unable to locate the bowl on their website, so I can’t quote a price. This bowl is perfect for filling with the snack of your choice at your next Shark Week party, and of course it makes an ideal gift for your loved one who loves Sharks.
Swedish graffiti artist André (André Saraiva, AKA Monsieur André or Mr. A) revists a classic Peanuts comic strip scenario as Snoopy interacts with Saraiva’s signature stick-figure doodle, Mr. A, on the wall of a downtown parking lot.
Charles Schulz, creator of the classic Peanuts comic strip, may be long gone, but his beloved characters live on! Just this past weekend, a new Peanuts Movie opened nationwide, while at a gallery in Soho, artist Tom Everhart, world-renowned for his Charles Schulz-inspired paintings of the Peanuts universe, launched his latest collection, entitled I Got Ants In My Pants, And I Need To Dance.
I Got Ants in My Pants sees Charlie Brown’s imaginative pet beagle Snoopy transformed into a whirling Dervish of motion, as Everhart adds bold splatters of brightly colored paint to simple sketches of Snoopy, who is lost in his own ecstatic dance moves.
Although Snoopy is a definite focal point of Everhart’s paintings, several of the other characters make appearances as well.
Five Snoopys and One Linus
Peppermint Patty and Charlie Brown
While Schulz was still living, he and Everhart enjoyed both a personal friendship and an artistic relationship greatly valued by both. The two artists painted alongside each other, developing a mutual respect so powerful that Schulz encouraged Everhart to carry forward his comic strip creations to the fine art form – with very fun results that are faithful to the spirit of Schulz’s characters.
Everhart was even brought in during the very first few days of the making of the Peanuts Movie by Blue Sky Studios in New York to share his knowledge of Schulz’s art with the full creative team.
I Got Ants In My Pants is a Family-friendly exhibit, and the art is priced to own.
I Got Ants In My Pants, And I Need To Dance Paintings By Tom Everhart will be on Exhibit through December 1st, 2015 at AFA Gallery, Located at 54 Greene Street (Corner of Broome) in Soho, NYC.
