detail, FACTORY FRESH outdoor courtyard.

the man of the moment – NIGEL aka TRUE.
more of the FACTORY FRESH courtyard.
lots of SKEWVILLE – to be found, duh. in the courtyard.

STIKMAN – FACTORY FRESH COURTYARD, NYC. Dec 5, 2008
KUMA – FACTORY FRESH COURTYARD, Dec 5, 2008
switching gears – back inside – PUFFERELLA. ‘thinking of another’ !! ($300)
the elusive PUFFERELLA herself, aka ALI HA.
ALI HA and AD DeVILLE founded, and run – FACTORY FRESH.
also lovin’ PUFFERELLA’S work – KANA and TETSUJI.
Tetsuji recently graduated from Japan’s Kumamoto University, Architecture Studies..
moving back towards the front of the gallery – AD DeVILLE’S – wanna watch ? – ‘POCKET WATCH MAN’ catches our eye.
a limited screenprint. it’s $50. ohhhh for 50 bucks !!! I would – if I could.
(that’s how bad this year is – don’t even have a lowdown $50 to blow on art – what with the quote unquote recession, trickling down. and BERNIE MADE-OFF – I mean MADOFF – which is pronounced – MADE-OFF !!
a lot of the people he swindled were just plain dumb and/or plain crooks – they were so head-over-heels rolling around in the big mega-bucks – they didn’t really want to double check, those phony baloney invoice statements – full of zeros, as in millions and billions. now, they really have all the zeroes they want !! talk about a 50 BILLION $$ NYC SCAM- ARTIST !! heard tell – some of them were art buyers – on some level. probably not on cool stuff like this – but hey, let’s not go into that… its already bad enuff. it’s the last thing we need in NYC coming down the pipeline, and hitting all us little guys – at the end of the food chain. the guys at the top of the chain – are no joke – falling like flies. .. with some taking the real exit out – swinging from DIY closet nooses in London and slitting their wrists over wastebaskets in NYC).
and everyone says – its gonna get worse. so back to the art !!
… anybody wanna buy a watch, how about a hedge fund ?
AD DeVILLE – nailed it. he’s got the current culture down on paper. and what’s best about it – his art – besides it’s flat-out truth – and predilection for the way things are – is his sweet sense of humor.
he doesn’t kill you with the gravity if it all – just lights up your day – with the iconic sense of a world gone to ruin !! the SKEWVILLE street tags – exhibit the same sense of social commentary.
(legendary) SKEWVILLE car print. love that silver !! ($30)
oh oh – what’s this !!
BECKY – knows a good thing – when she sees it – she’s just bought herself – an AD DeVILLE – BOOMBOX !! ($150)
and AD DeVIILLE signs it for her, on the spot – what can beat that !! nothing.
and here’s Becky’s friend, KATHARINE ….
she’s just bought a soda pop – ‘bottle cap’ – ($80) – and AD DeVILLE signs the back of that, too.
AD DeVILLE signs the back of the metal SODA POP – bottle cap.
AD DeVILLE does a bang-up job signing artworks for his fans.
AD DeVILLE the man behind the ‘BOTTLE CAP’ and (very smart) happy art buyer – KATHERINE.
AD DeVILLE – nails – BUSHWICK !!
“not another photo !!” – artlovers shows she can take her own medicine – rolling her eyes all the same !!
