Reminder: “All the Buildings in New York” at Con Artist Tomorrow

Posted on: May 17th, 2011 at 12:32 pm by

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow night, Bowery Boogie and Con Artist are co-sponsoring an exhibit by artist James Gulliver Hancock at the 119 Ludlow basement gallery.  RSVP here!

Open the hatch at 119 Ludlow street and enter the whimsical world of James Gulliver Hancock. An Australian artist living in New York, getting a massive amount of exposure for his attempt to draw ‘All the Buildings in New York’ on his blog www.allthebuildingsinnewyork.com.

James Gulliver Hancock grew up in Australia, he is not a New Yorker. Like most Australians he’s traveled extensively, at one stage going over land and sea from Australia to England via South east Asia, the Trans Siberian Express and all of Europe. He has landed in many cities, but New York is now his home.

James is obsessed with obsession. His whimsical visions infect everything he sees. He feels a responsibility to document everything he sees having obsessively drawn his surroundings since he was a little boy.

Now in New York and becoming more than a tourist, he feels ‘I love New York’ doesn’t cut it. He has started to stalk New York, hug buildings with pencils and spend days analysing little cracks and the people that move between them.

This exhibition will showcase a series of new original painted, drawn, collaged and printed works, that provide a new view of the city we know and love, taking it out of cliche and media representation and humanizing it with color and whimsy just in time for this blossoming spring.

In collaboration with boweryboogie.com, the show is open on 18th of May 2011.
