#MuseumOfFeelings

This temporary pop up installment has social media going nuts, how could I resist?

Their motto “Turn emotion into art” is definitely applied, especially since they focus so much on the smell sense. Which came into play later at the gift shop where candles were being sold. Scents of each room to remind you the emotion you’re supposed to feel.

Chris and I waited an hour on the line, something I hate doing, especially in the cold. It was fucking brick that night. I could tell Chris was getting cranky on the line and just wanted to leave, and he sucked it up for me, knowing that I wanted to go in. awwwww, thanks 

By the time you finally get inside, you go in with a small group and there’s a host to describe instructions. You’re handed a flash card that’s reflective, and it starts to make sense why as soon as you enter the room.

The next room which was probably my favorite was “Joy”. You’re handed 3D glasses and there’s green led lights hanging all over the ceiling. In the center of all the madness of  lights is a green token that resembles the plumbob from the Sims games. When you get close an aroma of fir takes over. This room was more like “what if I was tripping on acid right now” which was pretty dope.

The whole experience was pretty cool and pretty quick for the long wait, at the end you kind of get the whole take on the essence bit, and realize it was all just a giant advertisement for Glade.

If you would like to visit the Museum of Feelings, the installment is open until December 15th 2015 and it’s located on 230 Vessey Street, New York, NY 10080

New Body Art: Cyn City

2minxinxYou guys know exactly what I’m good for… and painting on boobs has always been one of my best qualities. ha! How many people can say that?

I got to finally meet and add some pigment on the cutesy Cynthia, she started off a bit shy but was ready and willing for whatever. Just like I like it, and I guess that’s what the camera loves too, because she ended up looking amazing. Of course David Zayas Jr. was behind the lens, and Rachell worked her makeup skills for a nice, sweet smokey touch.  When I saw how full Cyn’s boobs were, I knew I had to go big when it came to the hair, go big or go right guys!? Using about 5 different shades of pink, I worked on her curls, and Cyn’s final product turned out just how I wanted, right in your face! Check out some more from her set.

Feel free to follow all of these talented chicks and dude by clicking on the credit links below.

See ya next time!

Mimosas and The MOMA

Catching up with MaryAnn is always a treat. This time we picked brunch for our gossip session. She decided on this cute tiny spot by the name of Wine Bar by 90th Street. As soon as I saw her, I ran across the street and was ready for one of our hugs. As soon as we sat down we already knew we were going to be chugging mimosas. We were sipping in no time. MaryAnn ordered some eggs Benedict, while I decided to go with a mozzarella and tomato panini. Oh, my…delicious!

After catching up on boys, all of their traits that drive us crazy, yet can’t get away from, we didn’t want our date to end. Since we were so close to the MOMA we ended up taking our date to the museum. Before we even arrived, we noticed a guy in the park making the most beautiful big bubbles, they were so colorful!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was gorgeous in all it’s glory. I wish we had enough time to look through it all. We got through half of the first floor and kept oohing and aaahing at all the interesting pieces. Some of my favorites were the American History Homes. The luxury, ay dios mio.  There was also an exhibit dedicated to the fashion of mourning. All black gowns, stunning pieces of clothing. I’ll admit my favorite had to be 2 sequined gowns that were worn by Queen Victoria. Mostly in purple hues since it seems to be the color for half mourning, whatever that may be.

I hope you guys enjoy the pics, I know we enjoyed our date 🙂

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!

New Artwork: Curly Canary

  • 2minxinx

    Canary: 

  • Joy
  • Freedom
  • Intellectual Development
  • Selflessness
  • Sexual Ecstasy

2minxinxTwo weeks later after I showed you guys the WIP (Work In Progress) for this New Artwork, I finally get to show you guys the finished product. This Curly Canary was already finished and I was just waiting for the owner to have it in his possession before putting it online. You know how things go, then plans happen, and you get so caught up with everything around you. (Which also explains why my last post was bout 5 days ago, sorry guys, you know I’m usually more consistent than that when it comes to my blogging) As I mentioned in the behind the scenes post (see that HERE)  this piece started off with me having full control of what I wanted to paint. Jokingly around, I mentioned how I would make her resemble me a bit, with her curly purple hair and some tats to match.

I didn’t want to use much color. Much as in the amount of colors used, because I was ready for this piece to be vibrant. Especially since I already knew where it was going to be displayed, and since the new owner already had pieces of works hanging, I wanted to make sure my Minxette would stand out. Not that it’s much of a problem now, since I noticed she’s being showed off right in the middle of his bedroom. Damn, maybe I’m a bit of a selfish one, haha.

2minxinxI loved the way the highlighting on her skin tone came out. I swear to everything, I surprise myself every time I finish a new piece. I could never believe that I’m capable of doing what I do. Whenever I finish, I’m like ” omg, I just did this.”

It’s like another force was moving my hands in the way they need to go, and all of a sudden I wake up to something new. I see how much I’ve grown in these years and the change is drastic. I  have so much more to teach myself. Yes, I teach myself everything. I mean, I went to High School for Art, but let’s be honest, I was always cutting class.

Anyway, back to the painting, and enough of me giving you these close up shots, showing of the detail work. Here is the official finished product… well, not official, you know what I mean, the real one is chilling in someone’s bedroom right now.

I love it, He loves it, Do you love it?

New Body Art: Thirsty for Curls

image image image image
Who doesn’t love a girl with huge curls. Working with model A.J. made me miss my natural kinks so much. Maybe I should stop dying it crazy colors, and start over naturally….tempting, but I’m so addicted to all the chemicals … (Cough cough cough…let’s get back to the topic on hand)

This was the only back I got to paint on today, the biggest canvas on the body, which made it easier for me to get whole image to be seen by another. Usually when I paint legs, arms, the image turns, so it’s a tad harder to catch on camera.

Photographer David Zayas Jr. made it easy for this curly haired beauty to jump in front of the camera and have some fun… Plus, she was already super excited that I made her Minxette look almost exactly like her… Curly locks, big earrings and all!

A.J. is part of a duo girl rap group, with Azia.. who will be feautured next on the body art series. Check out her music while you’re at it.imageCredits & Behind the Scenes:

DSC_8830UntitledToday I got to shoot with Renee from ReneeMode.com. As soon as I woke up, the  model was already at my door, eye boogers and all….me, not her! since Renee was running a  bit l ate, I started painting right away, figured she’ll show up right when it was time to shoot. Boy, was I right.

Model Jordana was a quiet, sweetie and her sweetness shined unto these photographs.
