Adam Feibelman updates his website

I am writing today because I'd like to invite you to check out my website update, it's here: adam5100.com, there are lots of new things on there, from new works, to links to my "morning warm up series", as well as links to my social media and such (where you can keep track of my studios day to day). Please click all the buttons, or don't it's up to you. :)

In the news department, I have been doing a year of commissions, from wrapping up a six piece commission for the new San Francisco 49ers stadium, to doing a ceiling painting for a new restaurant. All of this after last years personal successes, such as winning the Herradura barrel art program here in SF. and coming real close to selling out the show last August. My next show will be September at a place called "The Battery" also here in SF. After that I will be headed back to my home of Albuquerque for a two week residency at the Tamarind Institute of Lithography.

A Parodist Who Calls Himself Hanksy

This is a story about art in the age of social media — about anonymity and self-promotion, about feral cats and viral cat videos.

In April 2011, a law school dropout in Bushwick, Brooklyn, newly arrived from the Midwest, had an idea that he thought might make a splash. He admired the street artist Banksy; he grew up on the movies of Tom Hanks. Why not mash up the two? Using simple computer software, he downloaded a Banksy painting of a rat holding a paint roller, then added an image of Mr. Hanks’s face. The whole thing took 10 or 15 minutes to create. He printed a cutout and pasted it on a wall at Mulberry and Kenmare Streets in Little Italy, signing it Hanksy. It was a stupid pun, he knew, but he was a sucker for stupid puns. Isn’t everybody?

He photographed the wall for his Instagram and Twitter accounts, and emailed it to the Wooster Collective, a popular street art website. Then he went to sleep.

“And then it just went viral,” Hanksy said the other day, speaking in a Lower East Side coffee shop near the restaurant in which he is a partner. “I remember counting at the time that it had been tweeted to four- or five-million accounts.”

Banksy Painting Up NYC for Month of Oct.

Attn. New Yorkers, drop everything and run - RUN - to Banksy's twitter feed (or possibly other street art Tweets) to see where he strikes next. Do it NOW... before it gets stolen, tagged over, or buffed. Quit your job if you have to.

Or... shrug.

Logan Hicks "Lights Out" to Benefit Hurricane Sandy victims

"Lights Out" Benefit photograph from Logan Hicks for Hurricane Sandy victims

Hurricane Sandy has destroyed entire towns and families in the tri-state New York area. While my own family and belongings escaped any real damage, many were not as fortunate. As we came through the hurricane, I thought 'that wasn't so bad' - and in my neighborhood, it wasn't. Then the news channels started to parade the misery of communities like Staten Island and Breezy Point across the screen. They were decimated. Entire houses washed away, lives lost, and cherished possessions destroyed.
