rap quotes

I am a hip hop fan. I am an art fan. Thank you Jay Shells. I stole this from a facebook posting. Love it.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was one of the first artists that I really appreciated when I found out about him in college. I went back and forth with myself about his work, if I really enjoyed it or not. I do. His work can be very chaotic and calm at the same time. There is a nice combination of busy line work matched with larger fields of color that creates this balance.  Just a thought I am having today. Check this recent showing out at the Gagosian Gallery.

Frogmen, 1983
I was four or five when he made this. Love that aqua.

really amazing

Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, where she shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.

Is blogging dead or are people just busy doing other things? Maybe instagram and twitter are just as functional. Maybe even facebook, maybe. And now vine. It is so annoying to have all these accounts and keep up with them, I think that is the problem. Just a thought I had this morning. I'm going to go paint.
