Of course, we all  know the open reception is always the best, especially since the artists are there to meet and greet fellow art lovers. This time, there was a short live painting performance  by both artist, which is always a nice little spin on things. I was meeting long time friend Philartiste, who was eager to introduce me to friends, who were visiting New York for the first time, all the way from France, oui!

They were the best, and of course, since we all have our private/secret identities to keep, their pictures and mostly anybody else in this graffiti business  have been pixelated for our viewing pleasure.

I remember when I used to have to do that.

Anyway, the gallery was great, the vibes and people were so energetic. I even managed to bump into my friend Luigi… who apparently, for years we are always in the same place once we compare images on instagram, yet never bump into each other! This time, while I was getting some custom labeled Cope 2 wine, that was brewed by Oliver from 67, we started cracking bc we finally got to bump into each other!

So, I hope you enjoy these photos.. and don’t forget to go to the gallery. A few blocks away was the Juxtapoz art show which you’ll be seeing next 🙂

Red bull was curating a competition where artists participatee in by painting a cooler shaped as a cube. At the end of the night, a winner and two runner ups were chosen. The loft was super grungy yet pretty. Which I admired, I had so many ideas as of how to design it if I was ever to use that space for a wedding.
DSC05289 Hahaha… can you blame me, every since Q proposed ive kept my eyes opened for cute little ideas. Even though I want something tiny, he insists in having something a littke bigger. But lets not get off topic, back to the show. . . DSC05291 We bumped into Philartiste, my awesome, cool ass home skillet. We wandered around looking at all the cool coolers and had a good night.
