Since yesterday was the so-called official day of Love, I started off my day having brunch with the two people I love the most, my sister and nephew. Afterwards, I went to my 3rd Love and that is Art. Yesterday was the opening of Mr. Brainwash’s ICONS exhibit downtown in the Meatpacking district. I get to 13th street and the line was around the block. I literally stood on line for 45 minutes in the freezing cold, a minor sacrifice for some inspiration and visual eye candy. It was well worth it though. It had to be one of the best show’s I’ve seen, besides the Warhol exhibit in Montreal last year. 15,000 sq ft of art and installations. I felt like a kid in Disneyland, with all that visual stimulation. From Giant paint buckets, an actual taxi cab inside of a matchbox packaging, a giant boom box that served as the sound system to the space, a giant horse made out of car tires, to portraits of iconic musicians made out of broken vinyl records. Not sure if the show is going to be there long but I brought my camera with me and did the best to capture what I saw. Peep the pictures below.
Me and Mr.Brainwash (Sidebar: Mr.Brainwash came outside and greeted everyone waiting on line to see his show.)
