Counter Weight – Show Report

Our show closed this past Sunday, and it’s taken me a few days to digest what we’ve accomplished. I wanted to take this space to celebrate our wins and contemplate our losses. There are many ways to measure success, and in terms of building an audience and engaging with the community I think we knocked it out of the park. But in terms of sales, the scale that most directly affects our lives, we went for broke and now that’s exactly what we are. To put this show into context. I think it helps to explain how we formed into …

Counter Weight

I’m so so incredibly proud to announce the opening of a group show I will be apart of next month titled Counter Weight.

I Art Therefore I Am

Progress is being made, but I’m currently in something of an in between state. Just like how museums need donors to stay afloat, and startups need capital to grow. I need money to bridge the gaps in my cashflow to get to my next opportunity. Since this year started I’ve made it a point to be more proactive. I apply for at least one art opportunity each week such as grants, exhibitions, or fellowships. I’ve been organizing a group show with two other artists for later this year (hopefully May by the looks of it). I’ve even started minting NFT …

World of One: Resisto

“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” Henry David Thoreau Resisto is one of those images I think are technically terrible, but somehow easy to look at. By technically terrible, I mean the focus on most of the suits is slightly off. It was an overcast day and we had very little light, so there are bits of motion blur here and there. The horizon line is skewed. I only shot one roll for this image when I usually shoot three to four, and I ended up using nearly every …

What It Feels Like to be an Artist in NYC Right Now

Surprisingly, last year was probably my best financial year to date. A combination of: qualifying for unemployment for the first time in my life, healthy art sales, some assisting work, and nowhere to go helped me build 3-4 months worth of savings. But this year all these streams of revenue have almost all dried up. I have been working, but even after we started to come back from lockdown, I’m doing about half the business I had during this time last year. If nothing happens, within 2 weeks I will be flat broke. As I always say, hoping that I’ll …

Yoga Master: Laura

There are few physical activities I dislike more than yoga. My impression of Yoga is that it’s the practice of standing uncomfortably. So I was surprised when Laura, a yoga instructor I met at a gallery opening, approached me about giving her the BBoy Monster treatment.  At first I was hesitant. Especially since I know next to nothing about Yoga. Plus I think a large part of my success with the BBoy Monsters comes from my knowledge of the dance, and each dancer’s specialty. For this shoot I would have none of those advantages. I felt like I was basically …
