well, anyone who knows her, knows Maya can be a pain – or is it only me. or is it me that’s the pain – o.k. – we both have big chips on our shoulders – I wonder why, could it have anything to do with lack of well-deserved recognition & success ? maybe.
at, any rate the show is all-out beautiful, totally striking and you know, positive – so, we find – we can’t in all conscience deny her, her moment in the sun, esp considering how bad – the rest of the global art world was – last week !!!
so, MAYA for you and KELI & STO at CINDERS – here’s some pix – and the rest of you couch potatoes – go see it – for yourself and maybe even – spring for a piece – to put up on the walls – and save everyone, in Brooklyn – that we love, from having to become ‘apt squatters’ !! no joke.
this is no way to treat our best most talented people – no matter the – $$ crisis.
Kelie was about to leave for CHILE for 2 and a half weeks. . She’s going down there with MAYA HAYUK and WOLFY and KAYROCK – to paint wall murals on the streets. . she says the culture there is full of street art and the powers that be – actually encourage muralists, who paint with brushes – and depict narrative scenes or abstract designs – as opposed to ‘taggers’ or ‘writers’ who use spray paint to leave initials-only tags.
she says if they see you roller brushing over the tags – they are very happy to let you paint to your heart’s content.
on the floor – a new BRIAN CHIPPENDALE – now going for over $2,600 and up – we told ya to score one a few years ago – when they were just about $1,000. what can we say. you can take a horse to water – you can’t make him drink.
STO – behind him – the display for his new – CINDERS VIP/MEMBERSHIP CLUB – you too, can join for $50.
