Haiku: Lock Combination 3*15*11*5

it took me hostage
and taught me never to care
until I killed it

EYE SPY: CAT by Fernando Botero

Eye Spy’d this on east 79th Street en route back to Harlem after a morning trip to the east side.

I hadn’t heard of the artist before but I figure anyone who gets to have their work exhibited on the Upper East Side is worth posting and further investigating.

I’ll follow up at a later date with more info.

Enjoy.

M.I.A presents “BORN FREE”

M.I.A’s “Born Free” video is a chaotic roller coaster ride of sight and sound, anger and acceptance, awareness and denial – without the comfort of a safety harness.

WARNING: this video contains extreme violence, nudity, adult language, strong sexual content – shit you’ve seen before, shit you won’t want to see again and shit you’ll encourage others to have a look at.

Take it for what it is: freedom of expression and speech. And speak your peace…

I am now speechless.

EYE SPY: OVERSTIMULATED Art Exhibition

Floor to floor, room to room and wall to wall art makes a visit down to the South Street Seaport’s @SEAPORT gallery exhibit “OVERSTIMULATED” more than a treat.

Comprised of student and local artists, the exhibition incorporates media based and traditional art forms as well tangible, wearable creations like “cut and wear” prop mustaches.

I took a trip down to the financial to check out artist, Charlotte Cutler’s, exhibit – a tiny room she transformed into an emotional rollercoaster of drawings, personal writings and a video that took you on a ride into the mind of a young woman fighting tooth and nail to maintain her wits in the sometimes unbending world around her.

As you closed the door to the room behind you and sank into her heart and soul, you were given a glimpse into an ever shrinking world of despair and the inevitable beauty that it births as a result.

The exhibit was refreshingly amazing, offering a variety of art forms and themes and is an absolute “must see.” Supersized paper airplanes, a dangling woman’s shoe, a broken television and a artist’s workstation complete with a bed were just a few of the works that jumped out and grabbed my attention.

I took the time to capture most of the show for those of you outside of New York.

I hope you enjoy.

EYE SPY: Skye Ferrante

Eye Spy’d Skye Ferrante down in SoHo and asked him to take a pic with his art. He told me he began selling street art after finding that there wasn’t enough money in publishing to put food on his table. Since, he’s gone on to become the highest paid street artist in New York City – according to him – fetching several thousand dollars for certain wire pieces.

If your interested in getting your hands on some of his work, you can find him on Prince street near the Mercer Hotel.

Tell him The INKWELL sent you 😉
