The Sucklord, a guy who makes custom bootleg arty Star Wars toys, has a retrospective show up at the Boo-Hooray Gallery in Chelsea that's up now. My friend Lamour Supreme invited me to paint Star Wars murals on the walls of the gallery and it was a lot of fun. Here are some photos of what I did on the Sunday before the show opened.
This is the unfinished piece. Apparently all the graffiti heads were getting confused about what the fuck I was doing because I was doing such drippy and uneven. I like drippy spraypaint is all.
Then the neighbors on the sixth floor complained that the fumes were making their kids sick and called the fire department who sent two trucks and then made us stop spray painting.
"RIP IRVIN KERSHNER 1923 -2010"
"HELP MY FACE MELTS IN HELL"
"EX HUSBAND WANT VISITATION"
"DARTH W.K. YOUNG SITH LORD"
My friend Lamour Supreme painted this intense two-headed Stormtrooper/Vader monster with a drill shaped dong. Then he posed with it like it was effing him.
I got to the opening late but Andew W.K. showed up and had his photo taken with my painting of Darth-him. Pink Storm Troopers wandered around and guarded the place.
I thought this was pretty cool object and without me even mentioning it the gallery owner gave me an artist's proof of this action figure/catalogue combination.
Here's a photo of how my piece looked at the opening.
Here's what Sucklord's art looks like.
Here's what the crowd looked like.
This guy and his girfriend found this helmet in the ice bin and took it home.
Vectar and his minions flip people off. Flipping off the camera is very punk and also hip-hop.
Finally the evening ended in Chinatown and DKE Toys bought us dinner. Thanks guys! The show will be up until January 23rd at 521 W. 23rd Street.
