Martin Lawrence Galleries tonight hosted a Meet the Artist event featuring the newest works by Pop Art Superstar Kostabi. He’s well known for his faceless featureless characters that speak volumes. I noticed his new featured works were a bit brighter then usual with many having a playful sexual nature to them. While admiring some of them the Artist who was in attendance shared with a group that a work in question of a female form was actually not a woman but paint out of a tube representing the personification of creativity. I asked him about the palette being brighter then usual and he stated that he is in a very happy place in his life currently living between NY and Italy and the bright colors are an expression of this joy. The crowd tonight was rather eclectic and colorful as well making the event that much more entertaining.
