Time flies and another Holiday season is upon us. I’m kind of bored of seeing the same repetitive gift guide everywhere. So here is my art-centric, shameless, unapologetic gift guide. Enjoy!
FOR THE NOSTALGIC
I kind of suffer from the nostalgia of the 1980's in New York City (but not all the time). If you want to relive some of those moments and immerse yourself in this biopic directed by Julian Schnabel, Basquiat, offers a very good account of the super intense, super rich art scene of 30 years ago. Available at Amazon.
FOR THE CELEBRITY IN YOUR LIFE
Do you have a celebrity in your life? What if a loved one is more than a star in your own constellation? I feel that "Stars Don't Stand Still in the Sky" by Lawrence Weiner, will make anyone feel celebrated whether they are famous or not. Available at Artspace.
FOR THE KID WHO HAS IT ALL
For your toddler or preschooler who is into music and art, this Yoshitomo Nara "Doggy" radio has a built-in Yamaha sound system and blue-tooth technology that promises to put anyone to dance. Available at the MoMA Store.
FOR THE GROWN UP WHO IS A KID AT HEART
I have loved Keith Haring for so many years, yet I loathe nostalgia so much! But I love the 80's, so it's a very contradictory part of my life. This set of stackable figures can keep grown ups entertained and also make a beautiful office desk piece. Available at Amazon.
