Andy Warhol

So my best friend, Erica, is in town this week. She came up from Philly to visit and I havn’t seen her since my graduation in May so we had our usual BFF (with her younger siblings outing). I found out about the Mr. Brainwash “ICONS” Remix exhibit via twitter and it is amazing. What you are about to see is only a small snap shot of what the exhibit entails.

Erica, Julianne, Samuel, and Me…I remember when I was taller than him…that was a long time ago lol.

These portraits are amazing!

Images made out of vinyl

This is so powerful!

The horse is actually made out of tires and Martin Luther King Jr. with the coolest hat and shades.

Mr. Brainwash also paid tribute to some of the greats in the world of art: Keith Herring, Picasso, Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and others. He also paid tribute to the greats in music, politics, civil rights, science, and sports: Martin Luther King Jr., Michale Jackson, Muhammad Ali,  Albert Einstein, The Beatles, Kiss, Ray Charles…and more.

The color motif was pink and here is the story behind it:

Mr. Brainwash had a can of pink paint in his trunk. It spilled out in his trunk and was dripping everywhere. He was inspired then to create the remix to his “ICONS” exhibit

If you are in the NYC area, check out the exhibit in the Meat Packing District.

If you are in the New York area and have never been to Target 1st Saturdays, you are truly missing out on so much fun. The first Saturday of every month, Target sponsors various FREE activities and events at the Brooklyn Museum. They have various activities depending on the theme of the month. This month is dedicated to a legend, Andy Warhol. The Andy Warhol: The Last Decade exhibit goes until September 12, 2010, but this weekend we were able to view it for free. We also viewed other exhibits, watched an incredible art battle by four talented artist, watched some karaoke, and met up with a few friends. Here are some photos from the festivities.

This is for the painting above. It pretty much states that Andy Warhol urinated all over a bunch of canvases, mixed  his urine with metallic paint to create these master pieces.

The Last Supper Series

Here are photos of the artist from the art battle. They artist had 15 minutes to complete a painting…it was definitely a joy to watch.

Concep– Watching him work was truly amazing. There was an element of surprise to his work. The image was unexpected, but the end product was extremely powerful. It also helped that he was a cutie lol. I do not know much about painting and I do admire artist for this, but this man can blend his colors lol. I know that is something strange to notice, but you had to see him in action to truly understand what I mean.

There is more! Click to see more photos.
