At the New Museum in NYC for the Pawel Althamerâ€™s â€œDraftmenâ€™s Congressâ€ exhibit with Dalvero Academy yesterday, we had a terrific time! The artist invited people to draw and paint everywhere and anywhere in the gallery space. What fun. Spontaneous drawing at itâ€™s best. Great sense of freedom, it made us feel like kids. Above is a collaboration between a strangerâ€™s painting, my son James and myself. The stranger laid down the splattered background, I filled in the cat shape, and James made the face. Oh and of course I couldnâ€™t help scratching some marks into the paint, kinda like a cat would.
I also made this painting of a little girl walking her dog under a peace sign. I didnt notice until I got home that it was a Mercedes symbol! Would’ve changed it for sure, but I still like how the painting came out. I’m inspired to do more work like this:
