Pink Thing of The Day: Pink David Bowie Glamour Shot

This week’s Pink Thing comes from the incredibly talented Florida-based artist Scott Scheidly, and his latest series of hyper-realist portraits, which he calls Glamour Shots. Part of Scheidly’s ongoing “Pink Series,” Glamour Shots consists of vibrantly painted satirical portraits in which the artist depicts celebrities and notorious politicians dressed in hues of pinks and purples. Named for the glamour shots photography style popularized in the 1990s, Scheidly draws inspiration from this campy genre, draping figures in pearls, satin gloves and feather boas. I saw the Glamour Shots exhibit at NYCs Spoke Art Gallery and immediately fell in love with this portrait of David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King from the movie Labyrinth.

Thursday January 10th marked the first serious art crawl of the New Year, and what better way to kick it off than with a visit to Bold Hype Gallery on West 27th Street for their new group show, Far Away, So Close. We always have a blast at Bold Hype’s shows, so this was a special treat to have so many of our favorite artists exhibiting all together! Here’s some of what we saw:

Sweet Tooth By Daek William

Daek William’s paintings are a lot of fun.

Seducer By Eric Richardson

Eric Richardson is probably my favorite local artist and I am so proud to own two of his paintings in my collection. His attention to detail and love of the surreal seems to be developing further each time I see his art. Now is the time to buy work by this artist because his pieces are only going to go up in value.

Preemtive Nostalgia By Scott Sheidly

Scott Scheidly is another surrealist I admire. The above work is called Preemtive Nostalgia. I like it.

The Wishing Well By Nathan Spoor

Nathan Spoor is not only an amazing artist but a super nice guy who is also totally hot.

Luna II By Jason Limon

Luna II by Jason Limon is very indicative of his style and subject matter: surreal but organic and earthy.

I chatted with Johannah briefly at the reception and she expressed to me how her objective with this series is to create hyper-realistic paintings that look even more real than photographs. I think she is on the right track, because her work is stunning.

Far Away So Close will be on Exhibit at Bold Hype Gallery, Located at 547 West 27th Street, 5th Floor, NYC through February 10th, 2013. Be sure to tell them that you read about the show on Worleygig.com!
