  • Mini interviews with artists of Buddy's Den Artshow- Day 2

    Tuesday May 15 2012

     Today we will focus on a trio of talented artists who actually shared pieces on the main west wall ! Mariangela Tan, Jaz Harold & Abby Denson. These artists have really interesting insights on their pieces for the show!

  • Buddy's Den Group Artshow at Toy Tokyo Underground Friday May 11th

    Monday May 07 2012

     I'll be co-curating a small group artshow at Toy Tokyo Underground this Friday May 11th. The show is my friend Bridget Rhee's vision:

    It's called "Buddy's Den"
    Buddy is a hunter. A cute adorable one. But Buddy doesn't prize the ordinary wild animal, he seeks to collect the eccentric-- fantastic, strange, and unique creatures and odds and ends from the likes no one has ever seen before. 

    Enter Buddy's Den, a group show exhibiting fantasy taxidermy from select New York-based artists.
    Hope you can make it~!
