Dirty Gardener: Fad- Timberland 8″ Wheat Construction Boot

For the past couple of weeks I noticed that dudes are walking around rocking the Timberland 8″ Wheat Construction Boot with their tight jeans. I def. not going to front I like the look. It reminds me of 2pac in Juice.. lol. So this is just a lil report I felt like doing about the current trend in Brick City. You never know, maybe the next time you see me I might be rocking some..

Art: True Self @Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Opening Reception - Saturday, October 24th, 7-9pm

October 24, 2009 through November 21, 2009

NEW YORK, NY (October 1, 2009) — Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to announce True Self, a group exhibition of new works by over 40 artists, brought together by represented artist and special guest curator Gary Baseman. The theme has been left open to encourage individual interpretation and there are no size or medium restrictions, so that each participating artist has complete creative freedom on the subject at hand.

In the curator’s words: “In this exhibition, I have invited a group of painters, photographers, and sculptors, to look deep inside themselves and create an image that they feel represents their own passion or obsession. They might imagine themselves as anyone or anything—a wolf, a cupcake, a mermaid, even a skyscraper. I am requesting each artist to create an artwork that represents his or her true self. I am not asking for (nor do I want) a self-portrait. Rather, I’m requesting that the participating artists pick an icon, metaphor, or symbol that they feel represents their true essence. The desired result is a breaking of boundaries to allow a space and time where we can discover, accept, and love our true selves, feeling nirvana and heaven on earth.”

His artwork has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Rome, Taipei, Barcelona, and Berlin. He had an installation at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and a two-man show at Laguna Art Museum.
