Jonny Negron

Thanks to this newly published book through PictureBox, I’ve been introduced to the work of Jonny Negron. The best way to describe Negron’s art is if you took Robert Crumb, dropped him in on the border of Bushwick with a stack of King magazines, Japanese comics, and art supplies and told him to get to work. The results are colorfully addictive.

Punk: An Aesthetic

For the most part, if you’re reading this website, you get it. So it is a no-brainer that you will appreciate this new title published through Rizzoli that’s edited by Johan Kugelberg and Jon Savage. Heavily illustrated and featuring rare artifacts from the origins of the punk movement, Punk: An Aesthetic is a necessary addition to that already top notch bookshelf of yours.

Openings & Parties: Hearsay at Half Gallery

From the street to the sidewalk to the storefront, a corner of the Lower East Side was mobbed last night for the opening of Jay Miriam, Jeanette Hayes, and Jemima Kirke’s group show “Hearsay” at Half Gallery. Inside the gallery, the ladies presented new paintings that were strong enough to balance the beauty that surrounded them.

A View From The Top: The Transamerica Pyramid

Anyone who has ever been to San Francisco has seen the Transamerica Pyramid. You can’t miss it. Unfortunately for the public, gaining access to the building the and the remarkable views it affords is near impossible. Recently though, Colin M. Day was able to get inside the building and make it all the way up to the top of the spire, which is a full 17 flights of stairs (approx 100′) above the 48th floor conference room where the trip up begins. Here are some photos from his experience which he likens to being “in a greenhouse high above the city.”
