Event: Write Off Cancer

All photos taken on an iphone 7+

I’m going to start this entry with a big thank you. Thank you to everyone who came out last night, and showed support for such a great cause.
Write Off Cancer, is a group exhibition that was curated on the behalf of legendary graffiti queen, Diva. This benefit featured original works for sale, from a collective group of artists. All the proceeds fro this exhibition will be going to help Queen Diva with medical expenses and her battle with cancer.

Kaystar, the beautiful soul that she is asked me if I wanted to be a part of this installation. It was bit last minute for me with the move and all, but there was no way I was going to say no. I happily donated 4 older pieces I had hanging out in my bedroom. Two of the pieces were displayed,while the other two will be auctioned off, at an online auction. That link is coming soon, so please stayed posted.

The love and support was so real. It was such a great turnout.
I’ll update this post with a quick recap video of the night. See you guys soon!

Art Show: Moody Presents – Uncle Paulie’s Deli


Art shows used to be all I used to do at one point in my life. I love the scene, loved networking, plus there’s something so special about seeing brush strokes up close. I miss it so much, I vowed to start going to some more.

So here I am, and Ashley is the perfect date.

We arrived at Williamsburg and decided no to stay too long, but not before making our rounds looking closely at all the pieces. I have to say, even though everything was great, I was a sucker for the bathroom that was all tagged up.

Getting food after was delicious, Ash and I split mac and cheese, pulled pork and mozzarella sticks. I was little upset they had apple pie milkshake in the menu, but they didn’t have it in the diner.

Wack.

Until next time.

Science Project at Sweet Science

2minxinx2minxinx2minxinx2minxinx2minxinx2minxinxWhen I say something, I get it done. i told you guys I was going to start going to more artshows and that’s exactly what I’m doing. I decided to drag Chris with me, on a last minute notice, after a few beers. We headed to Sweet Science where I got to see the works of longtime friend Yes One, the infamous Shiro, and a lovely artist by Vik NYC that I haven’t seen in years. Last time was about almost 8 years ago, so it was nice to touch base and catch up quickly. It’s crazy how fast time goes by, and that only made me realize how long it has been since I started my love for attending art galleries. I love to network with artists and just be surrounded by those with a creative eye, or even those who appreciate it.

I got to meet the sweetest event manager by Nikki, and if all goes well, maybe we’ll work together in the future (fingers crossed). After Chris ordered us some beers, Yes One and I caught up, roamed the lounge to see all the works, which were fabulous by the way, I got into action as well.

When bumping in to OldNYC76, Crooklyn and Millie, it was jokes all around, and it didn’t take me long to get in on the drawing action. I started hitting blackbooks, model trains and maps in no time. Damn, I sure missed that!

Graffiti, Gay Icecream & Sneaky Cervezas

Chinatown of course.2

I headed with Q to meet with Misha, we were headed to Canal Street to see artists paint in a lot and I knew this neighborhood a little too well.

See, my step-father( father to me, I don’t see him any other way ♥ ) had worked in this parking lot for 26 years, so ever since I was little, I would always be running around the lot with my other siblings.

My mother used to work in the Bakery that was close to the lot, so sometimes I would help her wait the tables. I used to like it, I felt like a grown up.

Not to mention there was this cute older italian boy who used to work in the actual kitchen, but of course he used to see me as a little sister type.

Hey, I was a little kid and all I knew was, that he was pretty.

3

My father is so upset that this parking lot is closed after all these years.

So when I saw the posting that there would be new artwork, I couldn’t resist but to go.

Of course, when I found it was a little too late, but better than never.4

Q, Misha and I arrived as soon as all the artists where finished, we said hello and introduced ourselves to the people that were still there.

Who were sweethearts by the way!5

They greeted us with beers and let us take our pictures with no hassle.6

Though I didn’t get the name of all the artists, I already knew Meres was a part of it, due the light bulbs with faces and Mishka of course, did his thing.7

We  bumped into this awesome piece right across the street next to the church.8

After all the graffiti, we headed to Burger King for some grub and made our way in to a Halloween Shop.

I saw a Mario with a sign and I ran to the store!9

I have no idea what I want to be for Halloween and I’m running out of time!

It’s so hard now a days to find something for female adults that is not too revealing.

I don’t want to be cute, with fairy wings and such, and I don’t want to be sexy with my belly all out.

Let’s face it, no one wants too see all this jiggle in a belly shirt.lol10

I took these random pics while walking since they caught my eyes.

I found that box on the floor to be so funny, and a random picture frame just being hung up in the street, ha!

nice graff in the background too.

11

After that, Misha, Q and I met up with our  friend Sasha De La Cruz, who was visiting from Salem, Massachusetts. Misha, her and I went to high school together, and since she was in the city for comic con we had to make it a good night. 12

We headed to a restaurant in Greenwich where the artist Mekone was displaying some work. Misha was buying one of his pieces, since she’s going to be starting her own collection soon.

Ah, so exciting!13

I took some pictures of his work for all of you to see.14

Look at this baby, titled “Thirteen”

Isn’t she a beauty?

and in a pink frame, what a beauty.15 16 17 18

I loved this one as well. Look at those eyes!19 20 21

You can follow Mek on Instagram here22 23After the restaurant…

yes, this night is not over!

24Sasha was super sweet and gave each of us a little present.

We each now own a Mut exclusive print, personally signed by Sasha herself.

She’s super talented and while looking through her work in a pizza shop, all attention was on her.

Customer’s kept stopping telling her how talented she was, which she is!

If you wanted to check out some of her work, follow her on Facebook.

We started to walk, and a lot of walking we did, cracking jokes and Q acting all silly.

We bumped into an ice cream shop.

First thing I noticed was a huge man in a dress, so I definitely wanted to go in!

28

Big Gay Icream was tiny, packed and had a lot of spunk.29

One of the popular ice creams was named Bea Arthur, which I thought was sooo cute.

And if you don’t know who Bea Arthur is, she was one the women from the show

Golden Girls”

and if you don’t know what that show is…. I don’t think we can be friends anymore!30

The girls ordered their icecream, while Q and I snuck in some beers.31

Look at him, wanting my beer!32

I got caught burping..

I’m such a lady.33

Sasha’s burp must have been more amazing than mine, look at that face.34

It was a great night, we definitely walked a lot, and if I’m not skinny by now, I don’t know what to tell you.

35

See you guys next time, and Sasha, it was great seeing you again!36
