St. Savage was once again called upon by his old pal Nick Kuszyk aka Rrobots to help him out with some painting. This time it was a 200 foot stretch of a 900 foot pedestrian tunnel for the No. 1 subway train station located uptown in Washington Heights. The concept was to execute a geometric shape pattern color grid of psychedelia. Four other artist teams worked on their own 200 foot sections all day long for a little over a week. The once dismal and dull tunnel is now vibrant and full of colors, designs and imagery. A great move by the DOT, who funded the beautification project and helped bring a positive vibe to the neighborhoods daily train riders. Many locals seemed pleased and said so.

St. Savage overseas in Surrey 2015

Got a cool email recently from Mr. Sam Socket over at Frensham Heights art school in Surrey, England. For those that don’t know, Surrey is a British county about an hour outside of the center of London. Anyways…I had sent Sam some shirts, zines and stickers a year or two ago and now that he’s attending school he decided to decorate the wall of his dorm room with the pages of some St. Savage zines. Looks great! Something I did myself with stuff that I liked when I attended Pratt Institute.

Thanks for sending these pictures and good luck with your work Sam! Cheers!

Art Auction Benefit 11/20/14

 

Unusual Unity 2014

Unusual Unity 2014

Canvas I whipped up in 3 hours last night entitled “Unusual Unity” at a live painting auction in Hell’s Kitchen. The event was called “Art of this World” put on by Art Works (The Naomi Cohain Foundation) who provide children suffering from chronic illnesses access to art programs to encourage the creative process as a vehicle for healing, self expression and development. All auction proceeds go to into funding the art programs.

Several other artists painted live as well amongst the cocktail party folks and it was a challenge to make a piece in such a short time. Funny part was that some sort of glitch happened for people bidding on my canvas and two people ended up winning it LOL…so I said I’d make another one and to have both bidders pay out since it’s for a good cause.

“Eminent Domain Reversal” 2014

 

Eminent Domain Reversal 2014

Eminent Domain Reversal 2014

New 30 x 40 canvas entitled “Eminent Domain Reversal”. This piece addresses the nonstop real estate over development, greed and gentrification of NYC. “Eminent Domain” is the process used by the government to seize private property for public use, yet usually is abused and manipulated so private developers can build more expensive homes, corporate business complexes and office buildings that will yield higher property taxes and revenues. This painting suggests the reversal of that process, where we the people (as well as the creeps, demons and oddballs outside the social norm) seize the property back from the developers, the profit pigs and heartless agenda mongers.
