I consider myself an artful blogger. What more can I really say?

    Kris Payne has a book out and it’s only $15. I know what you’re thinking, am I kidding? NO I AM NOT. Deadly serious over here. You can hold his beautiful landscapes in your hands for just $15.

    Ridiculous.

    “What Banksy and Lazarides had done together was create a market for street art where none had existed before.”

    Will Ellsworth-Jones in his new book about how Banksy played the art market.

    Probably worth a read.

    I like to think that I want this just because it will be a token of the Franco Zeitgeist, but then I wonder if I just want it.

Conflicted.

    Leo Fitzpatrick Not Garbage 

OHWOW is pleased to announce the publication of Leo Fitzpatrick’s Not Garbage, a book based on the exhibition Ray’s A Laugh curated by the artist. Expounding on this exhibition, Not Garbage presents a selection of contemporary artists responding to the work of collage and correspondence artist Ray Johnson (1927-1995). Here, another generation of New York artists including Joe Bradley, Dan Colen, Adam McEwen, Leo Fitzpatrick, Hanna Liden, Nate Lowman, Josh Smith, and Dash Snow,  apply their own sense of wit and guile to the work of their forefather.  These artists add personal twists to work that acknowledges the past,  reflecting the importance of their own community. The individual means  of communication that Johnson promulgated during his life remain a  powerful force, still influencing the New York City art scene of today.Available in store and online.

    I would like to go to the book signing of this book because I would like to buy this book, read it, and then subsequently have a signed copy because I’m a snob like that.

I just…don’t…know how to pronounce Hunter Drohojowska-Philp.

    It’s been a while, I know you missed my whining, but I have finally stumbled onto another book worthy of “I Do Not Own, Can Not Afford”.
Chris Burden…I don’t need to elaborate, do I?

    A little bit ago, the wonderful Shauna Mei asked me if I would like to help curate an AHA Life post. Of course I agreed and after much deliberation decided that Dallas Clayton’s latest book, The Awesome Book of Thanks would be the perfect thing to share with the world. Click through to read all about it and pick one up for yourself. For every book he sells one copy goes to a school or hospital. Happy Sunday!
