RIP Billy Name

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2016/jul/18/billy-name-andy-warhol-factory-photographer-dies-76

Billy Name era fotógrafo, cineasta, e lighting designer. Ele foi o arquivista da The Factory de Andy Warhol, entre 1964 a 1970. Seu breve romance e amizade com Andy Warhol teve uma substancial colaboração no trabalho de Warhol, incluindo seus filmes, pinturas e esculturas. Billy Linich se tornou Billy Name quando se tornou Andy Warhol Superstar. Billy foi o responsável pela criação do design da The Factory, onde viveu até 1970. Suas fotografias da cena The Factory e do próprio Warhol são documentos importantes da era pop art. Em 2001, o United States Postal Service (correios dos Estados Unidos) emitiu um selo comemorativo do artista com uma das fotografias de Andy Warhol feitas por Billy Name.


RAZORTAG will be playing at the opening of WITHOUT RULES!

RAZORTAG will be playing at the opening of WITHOUT RULES in MF Gallery. LINE UP- Greg Maillard VOCALS, Mike Cruz BASS, Frank Russo DRUMS. “Without Rules” combines the works of four artists who, despite coming from very different backgrounds, all share a similar spirit of rebellion and innovation. Brazilian artist Fernando Carpaneda paints and sculpts gay men on the fringes of society; Jesse Mosher tours with punk bands such as CJ Ramone, live painting their portraits on stage; Brooklyn born artist Frank Russo creates colorful sculptural paintings of savage cartoon mutants; and Miestorm Serpent, of Studio 54 fame, makes collages and paintings that are psychedelic and raw. The art in “Without Rules” is anarchic and makes no apologies for its shocking and countercultural nature.

Exposição "Without Rules" (Sem Regras). A exposição abre dia 23 de Abril na MF Gallery no Brooklyn em Nova Iorque.


Jesse Mosher / The Louvre Museum Paris France April 1 2015

A exposição "Without Rules" (Sem Regras) combina obras de quatro artistas que, apesar de virem de diferentes origens, todos compartilham o mesmo espírito de rebelião e inovação. Fernando Carpaneda pinta e esculpe homens gays; Jesse Mosher faz performances com bandas punks como CJ Ramone, e pinta ao vivo seus retratos no palco; Frank Russo cria pinturas esculturais coloridas de mutantes selvagens e desenhos animados; Miestorm Serpent, o famoso bartender da boate Studio 54, faz colagens e pinturas que são psicodélicas e cruas. A arte em "Without Rules" (Sem Regras) é anárquica e não se desculpa por sua natureza chocante e contracultural. A exposição abre dia 23 de Abril na MF Gallery no Brooklyn em Nova Iorque. https://www.facebook.com/events/576039472545553/587702428045924/
