Picture of the Week- Technicolor Geekery

There is nothing wrong with you computer screen. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Takun Williams’ is controlling the transmission… Okay I couldn’t help myself with that Outer Limits reference.

This weeks PotW is from Pop artist Takun Williams. His art is like looking at a kaleidoscope of color and geekery! I love the intense neon colors he uses, although while getting lost in his Tumblr for a few minutes my eyes needed a little break. Check out Technodrome1.Tumblr.com for more Technicolor dopeness and his twitter @TECNODROME1. Continue reading →

Andy and my Camera Phone

I went to the Brooklyn Museum last week to see the new Andy Warhol: The Last Decade which I wrote about in a previous post. Here are some pics I took with my Blackberry.  I apologize for the poor quality, I couldn’t use flash and forgot to bring a real camera.

Andy Warhol goes to Brooklyn

Andy Warhol: The Last Decade will be at the Brooklyn Museum from June 18th- Sept. 12th.

The Brooklyn Museum is the first U.S. museum to exhibit the late work of everyone’s favorite pop artist Warhol (or the only one most people know). It encompasses nearly 50 of his works before he left us for that big museum in the sky. He was inspired to return to the hand-painted image because of collaborations with Jean-Michael Basquiat, Francesco Clemente and Keith Haring which are featured in the exhibit.

I’m so in there!

Some quotes from Andy just ’cause:

“An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have.”

“Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.”

“I had a lot of dates but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows.”

“I like boring things.”

“I never think that people die. They just go to department stores.”

“Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?”

I always felt like Andy was a sad man deep down… or maybe not so deep down.

Well that line was enough melancholy for one post!  For info visit Brooklyn Museum Warhol Exhibit
