Arabesque by Ray Caesar, 2009

March seems to be the month for anniversary shows.

In Berlin, Strychnin just celebrated the 7 Year Itch, in Santa Monica, Hi-Fructose Magazine is currently holding celebrations for its 5th birthday (more later) and in New York, Jonathan LeVine who started out in Philly with Tin Man Alley, celebrates 5 years of hard slave work for the lowbrow / pop-surrealist / neo-fantastic / eye-candy / super-flat / christ-i-don't-know-what-to-call-it-anymore art.

The line-up is impressive and eclectic, to say the least. From urban art luminaries such as Blek Le Rat, Shepard Fairey, Calma and Invader over to sculpture and assemblage art represented by Adam Wallacavage and AJ Fosik on to the "classics" of christ-i-don't-know-what-to-call-it-anymore art like Ray Caesar, Ron English, Xiaoqing Ding, Scott Musgrove, Dave Cooper, Gary Baseman, Esao Andrews, Isabel Samaras, James Jean and further on to the phantasmagoric horrorscapes of Chris Mars and the subculture photo-realism of Dan Witz.

So yes, there's something for everyone!

... and hopefully, CAEK! (^_^)

... and in totally unrelated news, I'm relieved and happy to say that I finally found the perfect male homo sapiens sapiens: Voilà! Sexeh!
