Endless Art

"Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known."-Oscar Wilde

Strong quote Mr. Wilde but true! I hope everyone is having a great week. I spent a huge chunk of last weekend feeding my creative soul by attending two art exhibits: Rebirth by Byron McCray and Punk: from Chaos to Couture.

Visual Artist, Byron McCray and I met YEARS ago when we both worked together at an ice cream shop, we found out we both attended FIT. We kept in touch over the years so when he invited me to his exhibit, I was stoked. Byron has a degree in FIT for illustration, he is one of the most talented artists I know! For the  REBIRTH, the new mixtape exhibition: is a series of paintings that explore music, strength, redemption, and the quest for higher ground. My friend Aiesha and I attended and we were blown away!







Aiesha, Byron and I. I love wearing this freedom top by √Čtoile Isabel Marant lol
LOL the pic below was a fitting finish to the this summer’s Costume Institute exhibit at The Met, : Punk {From Chaos to Couture} It was the last weekend before the three month exhibit closed. It did not disappoint! The show starts with The exhibit was a mix of do it yourself fashion to couture from the best of the best: Chanel,Burberry, Rodarte, and Alexander McQueen to name a few! The exhibit explores the origins of punk and looking at the differences and interchanges between New York punk and London punk. I wanted to wear everything!  








I came back to start the work week feeling inspired, jotting ideas down, adding songs to my Ipad, and deciding to go to a museum at least once a month :)

If you are in the NY area, you can visit Rebirth by Byron McCray at Greenwich House Music School located on 46 Barrow StreetNew York, New York 10014.
