I recently visited the KLIMT illustrated exhibition at Lazarides Gallery in SoHo,
the main purpose of my visit was to oggle at Shepard Fairey's canvas....
which as you would probably guess I thought was incredible!!
I was slightly gutted that I missed the live event..... especially because I was near by at The Mr Brainwash exhibition!
But thanks to Invisible Made Visible for the heads up,,, I guess checking your e-mails help..
This is what their website has to say,,,,,,,,,
Shepard Faireys piece was sexy and seductive and the contradiction between the detail of the background and the simplicity of the form of the woman was incredible, I enjoyed searching through the layers of the collage and noticing small details and textures and OBEY stencils.
This peice is by Bastardilla and was covered in small diamantes
I was told that I could take photos....
and couldn't resist taking a photo of Mode 2 at work, as we stood for a while watching him paint which was an incredible experience (and I agree with the website abstract above, that he is fascinating to watch),
and his piece was amazing!
but obviously this guy didn't appreciate me taking his picture and told me I wasn't on Safari,,
and I should have asked,,, he was right but I just didn't think he would appreciate being interrupted?
I was slightly shocked but couldn't help but laugh, apologise and then leave pretty swiftly before we annoyed him anymore ; - )
I guess next time I'll definately ask.... lol
