Vinyl toymakers: Can we collaborate on a set of these for Xmas 2012? Also Kaws, apparently you were on the right path to this with Companion Passing Through.

Bas-relief sculptures made out of salvaged wood by Ron van der Ende

Evol’s Ground Installation at MSDOCKVILLE Festival in Germany

Upon arriving at his spot for the piece, Evol found “an endless meadow.”  So instead of building up in the environment, he went down.

“I decided to cut open the idyll, and pretend there is no endless meadow, but only rooftop-gardens of the disgust underneath …”

The 9×9 meter, 1.5m deep piece is beautifully executed.

In Celebration of A Companion

18 floors above the newly installed Companion (Passing Through) by KAWS, a happy crowd of artists, musicians, and entertainers got down to the seamless tunes played by Samantha Ronson and ?uestlove in the luxurious Boom Boom Room. Having never seen the piece in person before, it is a reality that the sculpture is an outstanding piece of art. Though strangely enough, nobody was in agreement with my interpretation of the whole thing being about food shame. That might have been the Hennessy acting up on my part…

Check out an interesting twitterfed gallery of the sculpture here, and peep it in person at the Standard NY through October 2011.

Morning Dose of The Andy Monument

Rob Pruitt speaks about “The Andy Monument”

The Andy Monument

Today at 6pm sharp in the NW corner of Union Square, Artist and D.C. boy Rob Pruitt, with support of the Public Art Fund will unveil The Andy Monument.

“The Andy Monument, by Rob Pruitt, is a figurative sculpture of Andy Warhol in the neo-classical style.  Situated in Union Squared Park, it stands across from the building where Andy Warhol moved his Factory to in 1968.  Just around the corner from Max’s Kansas City, this was the location where Valerie Salonas’ assassination attempt occurred and where Interview magazine was launched. The statue sits on a classical style pediment, which instead of being carved from marble, is cast in concrete. The figure, at 7 feet tall, is slightly larger then life and chrome-plated, to reflect the changing world around it.”

Below is a letter from Rob Pruitt stating the intent and reasoning behind the sculpture:
