RE: CAP: Art Battles Painting LIVE at the Brooklyn Museum July 3rd 2010
I finally got the idea after surfing through art archives of Andy Warhol and notice he painted in his contemporary life time, people that were also famous. I then looks at what I notice that are contemporary in my life time, and I remember seeing a program of Lady Gaga's interview where she herself has commented on Andy Warhol's art and fashion. WOW this is exactly what I wanted to do then, but how? I had to find several images...
After getting what I wanted visually, I was set off to travel from the Bronx to Brooklyn. I had to say got there late, an hour and some change late. I stopped at Nevins and walked out to catch a taxi. As soon as I paid the cab driver, I bolted out of there as ran straight to the main lobby . "Where the heck are they?" As I stood there looking lost, two people smiled and gestured me to hurry: " THEY ARE OUT SIDE... " I smiled back and ran like a mad woman to the out door, and then I saw the massive crowd. WHOA... I even saw my friends had already started painting. I felt horrible that I was late. Sean Bono wasn't happy with me, and I totally understood and felt so horrible about myself for not leaving earlier from my house. I am sorry homie ! I still love ya.
I must say: I never really like painting wet on wet due to the fact that the work will become muddy. I have to have tons of color to achieve a clean look of work. But I do say: I love working on this theme, and I loved that is was a challenge for me as well! from the corner of my eye, I saw Tasty Keish, Conscious, Mark Anthony Vigo, Wendy from New Paltz, Fernando Leon, B Metals, Jen One, Aquino and brother, man the list goes one! WOW, Brooklyn is a huge place where there is a lot of love! Aquino and his camera took some of this pics.. waiting on soem new ones... yay..
I didnt win, but I had so much fun! the battle was between Concep and Lexi Bella...
Round two: Lexi Bella won for the ladies! Congratulations Mama !
