Mick Jagger is staring straight at you. Now I’ve got your attention, I’ll begin. In the 1970s, Carinthia West was a model and an actress. Having been spotted by an agent in Carnaby Street, she was thrust into a world of she was thrustinto a world of rock stars and actors. Her life became an endless whirl of travel and parties, hanging out with stupendously successful stars, but she never fully immersed herself into it.

Even More Potent When Reheated, Reused, and Revived: the Art of Bernie Taupin

September 1, 2016 - Arty Nelson | [Image: Rob Hofmann]

Starting in the 90’s, Bernie Taupin, already responsible for generating a massive and an extremely potent body of song lyrics over four or five decades, began pouring his creative energies into amassing a body of visual work. Drawing upon a voracious appetite for looking at art and studying art history, Taupin began working, predominately painted abstraction, the earlier works owing heavily to the post-WWII American canon with an emphasis on Ab Ex peppered with bits of Color Field and Pop (from that, a group of canvases resembling “dripped grids” stand out as particularly compelling and original). Elements of words, often drawn from popular culture, media blitz and current events would sometimes appear, effectively punctuating the abstractions. Another quite resonant aspect of Taupin’s work is the connection to “The American” and/or “Americana.” As the artist himself has commented, I’ve been referred to as a British-born American Artist and that’s fine by me.

Victor Matthews and Kenny Scharf Paint the Bronx

June 22, 2016 - Blouin Artinfo | Scott Indrisek

On the other side of the Greek food importer’s headquarters, a similarly long wall has been adorned by Victor Matthews. The two artists have been friends since the ’80s; they’re co-godfathers of Francesco Clemente’s daughter, a responsibility they assumed from Haring following his death in 1990. Matthews’s mural took nearly a month to complete, since, unlike Scharf, he favors traditional brushwork. In the midst of working on it, he was also juggling a solo show of new paintings, on view through July 9 at KM Fine Arts, the gallery instrumental in facilitating the Krinos project.

Sonia collaborated with artist Dana Louise Kirkpatrick to create a line to empower women. The "knock out" theme was sparked when the girl boss fell in love with Dana's artwork at Art Basel in Miami. Her painting of a female fighter flashing her red boxing gloves immediately caught Sonia's eyes, and she purchased a piece of her work on the spot. It was then, and with some inspiration from her teenage daughter, that the vision for her new assortment was hatched.
