Last night Casey and I hung my new show of watercolors IMPORTANT PEOPLE DRINKING COFFEE at Cafe Grumpy in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s a show about, as one might guess, important people and their coffee.
I should also mention here that not everyone I painted with their coffee is technically a “person”. A dog, a dinosaur, several goats, a Greek god, a Sesame Street character, and a beautiful woman who Eugène Delacroix painted were also involved.
Pieces are being sold for $80 and are 7″ x 10″ on hot press watercolor paper framed. Jesus, who is above, is about 11″ x 17″ and is $120. If you’d like to purchase something just let me know here and we’ll figure something out.
Here is the rest of the show:
(Yuri is sold.)
(Cookie Monster is sold.)
(Dino is sold.)
This is my second show at with Cafe Grumpy. My first was at their Park Slope location and was a bunch of watercolors I painted last year summer in Gigante, Colombia at one of the coffee farms where they source their coffee beans. See that here.
UPDATE: I’m really flattered by all of the press this show has received.
