Smells Like Dream Spirit

June 3, 2009

Lucia.dream

We’re excited to introduce Lucia Jeesun Lee, the first artist that’s going to be presented at “Real Art For real people, vol.3” (remember: June 7th, at 6pm, at Tom&Jerry’s bar!)

Her name is Lucia Jeesun Lee and she’s a recent graduate of Interactive Telecommunicaton Program at NYU. But, more importantly, she also happens to be an incurable dreamer, and you can see it in her work. As a child, Lucia wanted to be: a painter, poet, pirate, inventor, writer, architect, and astronaut (not necessarily all at once). Now, through her video installations, interactive screens and objects, motion graphic, animation, peformance and photography, Lucia wants to make another dream come true. She wants to bring life to urban landscapes, connect strangers in the city and Remind citizens of their forgotten dream.

Do you remember what your dream is? Maybe, looking at two of her video animations – “Dream” and “One”, you’ll remember?

Nothing “Girly” About Her Art

April 27, 2009

Jessie Brugger

Let us introduce you to the very talented artist,  one of the three we’re showcasing this moth (don’t forget, May 3rd, 5-11pm).

We present: Jessie Brugger. Born in Washington State and currently living in Brooklyn, she is working on her graduate studies at New York Academy of Art. Her lushly colored, intimate portraits show subjects submerged in their own, dream-like worlds, filled with circus outfits, fancy toys, cakes and balloons. But it would be a mistake to describe her as a “girly” painter of nice and peaceful things: she is equally effective and focused as portrait painter and as creator of politically charged scenes. Jessie describes her work: My art is carnivalesque – I use the vehicle of the carnival to tell my own story. I paint to tell a story. I paint to communicate. I paint because I have to.


What a Day, What a Show!

Where do we start? Maybe from: Sunday was a blast? Or: it was a real art celebration? Or: it was a great success?

Big Thanks to each and everyone of you that came to celebrate art and creative individuals with us last Sunday. Thank you, everybody that bought pieces straight from artists (you know who you are – enjoy!). We hope to see you next month.

We have a gallery of photos from our Sunday event and one of our featured artists, Cary Conover, had this special Video to share with all of you that were there (or those who weren’t but really, really wanted to be – come by May 3rd)


Are You Ready?

The wall pictured underneath is still empty. But that won’t last very long. Why? Because this Sunday, at 3PM that same wall will fill up with great art by Cary Conover and Buster Black:
