Grab a hand full of Yves Tanguy, a generous amount of Salvador Dali and a splash of Max Ernst. Then, go on Craigslist and find a guy with a pick-up truck. Fill it with things that you would find in the dumpster after Hurricane Sandy. Grab all of the cartoons from the 90′s and mix it in with episodes of All That. Dip it in a bowl of the Interweb and mix it with a hands-free head set and all the BOSS by IG Design you can find. It is still not even close to the enigma that is Artist Victor Payares.

I caught up with artist/ friend Victor Parayes at his studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We spoke about everything from his sense of style to what inspires him. I hope you enjoy:)

I recently had the chance to interview Sandra Gering at her gallery in the historic Crown building in Midtown Manhattan. She spoke to me about everything from opening her first gallery over 25 years ago in her house in Oyster Bay, New York to her morning routine and everything in between.

I recently had an AMAZING interview with Artist, Awol Erizku! “Why was it so AMAZING?” You might ask…. Other than him being such a great artist it’s also because he is such a nice dude.

He spoke about everything from his recent acceptance to YALE to his first upcoming Solo Exhibition at Hasted Kraeutler Gallery to the special women in his life. I hope you enjoy!

Kendra Morris an amazing singer, collage maker, and interior decorator, who graciously invited us over to her apartment, in the East Village, to do a Q&A.

We also had a chance to meet her fun-loving, arm-humping dog, Taco, and super-chill turtle, Melvin! Despite all the mind-blowing things I saw in her apartment, I managed to focus in on the interview and let me tell you – it was a great one!

I’ve been friends with Felix for a few years now. If you live in New York City you probably have seen his chalk-drawn faces along the sidewalks and on the floors of the subways. He is an amazing artist and person filled with true, almost unbelievable, stories of his life. I had a chance to catch up with him at a bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He spoke about upcoming projects, the reason for the faces he draws, and his thoughts on life and relationships. Enjoy!
