Dean Street And Beyond…NYC has been quite an adventure here in early to mid March.  We are here of course for SCOPE Art Fair / Armory Show, but we’ve been staying in Brooklyn at the infamous Dean Street 981 .  Whenever we travel we look for the craziest counter-culture spot we can find and 981 has delivered for Brooklyn.  Such a glorious coupling of keen design eyes and Peter Pan inspired lost boys aesthetic this Crown Heights warehouse gem has delivered both comfort and adventure.  Pictured here also are a few other highlights from our adventures here…some Killgallen style guerrilla advertising for Park Deli, and some vandalish Yoshitomo Nara drawings in friend Johnny Yerrington’s Niagra Bar.  

A wonderful 5 page feature on Amanda Marie is in the new issue 21 of VNA (very nearly almost).  She has the first article in the issue (interview by Jeroen Smeets) which features nice works from established names like Miss Van (cover), Rone, Faith 47 and Inkie to drop a few.  Great job Mando!   About 20 new small original works on paper just added to her tictail and a few new hella gorgeous large canvas pieces.  These pieces are all in advance of the upcoming SCOPE Art Fair in NY, March 6 - 10th.  

Amanda Marie, murals, paintings installed,  and some photos of prints in the  Jealous Editions studio in Shoreditch, for Moniker Fair London…

Very nice plug for Amanda Marie at Moniker Fair in The Standard!  The lead up to this fair feels even better than last year…so much excitement around the venue, so much positive energy.   Last night Amanda and I had dinner next to Gilbert and George…seriously…what a couple of truly kind, gentle and amazingly well dressed bad asses.
