I love giving paintings I have made as birthday gifts instead of buying extravagant presents for my friends. This painting is is what I gave Gemma for her birthday last year. When you find a good framer things last for years and years and can be cherished and enjoyed all the more. Paint the love!
Last night some friends and I got to see the amazing new Sam Haskins Exhibition at Milk studios here in NYC. The party was a celebration for the fist joint book project between Sam and Tommy Hilfiger entitled “Fashion Etcetera by Sam Haskins: Tommy Hilfiger Special Edition.”
Sam is such an amazing and iconic photographer and there were over 100 prints in the show so the crowd got to see a great selection of his works.
Sam Haskins suffered a ‘moderate stroke’ before the show and is “currently being stabilised at St Vincent’s hospital and is eventually expected to recover most of his mobility. He will certainly require weeks of rehabilitation in New York before returning home to Australia”.
Lets all wish Sam a full recovery and continue supporting his work!
It’s currently Fashion Week in NYC and among the madness of fashion shows and parties there are sometimes events that overshadow everything - and last night was one of them.
The Black Keys performed in the Rose Bar at the Grammercy Park Hotel and a ton of people crammed into the velvet upholstered space to see the best show of the week.
The Rose bar is a great place to go at night and is full of interesting and fun and fashionable people. Its covered in the best art (as you can see in the photos) and has a unique atmosphere.
On holidays in the Bahamas in a great bar my friends and I found. It was the cool local spot on Harbor Island so we helped give the place even more character by adding some art that Harif did and tagging our names on the walls along with everyone elses. It was such a cool place to hang out in!
I shot this video on my recent trip to the Bahamas. The kids were playing around on the street with anything they could find and my friends and I tried to give them a few skating lessons. They are such adorable kids and they have such a happy disposition. I love how skate and street culture can cross so many age groups, cultures, economic climates and personalities.
Skate and street culture crosses with the art world a lot as well, as you can see in these wicked decks by Marilyn Minter, Murakami and Damien Hirst for Supreme Skateboards.
This video of the late night skaters at Union Square in NYC just shows the difference of cultures but how simple activities can really translate and entertain.
In the Bahamas this weekend my friend and artist Harif decided to get creative on the beach. The Islander kids started helping out too as he painted by the shore- proving that you can be artistic anywhere! It was a great weekend in the sun and made me miss the Aussie beaches more than ever.
