Life is good and I am happy. Yesterday I sold a print of Don Barba to an amazing new art collector and spoke to a Humanities class at San Francisco State University about my artwork. It was my first time publicly speaking about my work outside of a gallery setting.
When I came home I discovered that my homegirl and BFF Ava Alamshah had uploaded polaroids that we had taken of each other while I was in Los Angeles last week. She presents them in a diptych below.
Ava and I have never collaborated formally on any artworks but we’re always up in each other’s mixes. Below is a video I shot and edited of Ava while I was in LA. One of the reasons that Ava is my BFF is that we have the exact same sense of humor when it comes to looking at ourselves and others as artists. We’re serious with a tongue planted firmly in our cheeks.
It’s all good in the hood,
