TOOFLY X JUNKPRINTS TEAM UP FOR SHOP CREATIVE!
Saturday December 4,2010.
3:30PM-8:30PM
Space on White
81 White Street//Tribeca NYC (Btw. Broadway & Lafayette) Trains to Canal St.

Space on White is a socially conscious space for artists located in Tribeca, New York City. Artists or organizations can rent out studios that cater to acting, music, and dance rehearsal. Our great energy and environment encourages collaboration and growth for artists and their audiences. The open, spacious designs of the spaces act as blank canvases that are committed to the artist first and foremost. Artists we discovered early that we had an innate desire to create and share. And we communicated our most sensitive feelings and ideas through our art and sought to inspire others by it. Along the way we found that in order to make money off the art we loved to create we had to submit it to the dishearteningly arbitrary scrutiny of directors, agents, and curators. It was from this place in our hearts that we created Space on White – that place where your creativity and talent is nurtured and protected. – Chasten Harmon – Artist/Founder/Executive Director

HEARTBREAKER

November 13th, 2010 | Category: IN THE ZONE...

Started work on the 12″X12″ piece that will be part of a group show on December 10th at Mighty Tanaka gallery in Dumbo Brooklyn. I’ve been wanting to paint this one image I had hanging on my wall for weeks. As soon as I was all settled in and the sunshine leaked through my window it was on! The brush touched the canvas and in a matter of hours it all surfaced. This girl is bad ass! and she ain’t looking back for nobody. Can’t let anything or anyone get in the way of your flow, your dreams, your life. You’ll break a few hearts along the way, but most of that shit isn’t not your problem anyway. Freedom is bliss, and I’m loving it;)
