Artist Ryan Callanan created this sculpture of the late Rapper Biggie Smalls as the Buddha, covered in gold leaf, draped in bling and seated on a big pile of cash.  Nice. Buddha Smalls Cash Gold (2016) one of an edition of seven pieces, sells for $1,700 from Tag Fine Arts in London, UK.

Greg Haberny’s Burn All Crayons at Lyons Wier Gallery

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).

Welcome to Happy Camp

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.
