Untitled (Hair Drawing II), 2008,
acrylic and ink pen on paper, 8 x 6 inches (unframed)
This drawing of an androgynous figure with a massive amount of stylized hair serves as a symbol of bohemianism and non nonconformity for the artist.
It is #2 of three made at the same time and one of many small scaled drawings made while living in New York City's East Village during the 00's while the neighborhood was going through an anti-cultural revolution of its own.
The legendary "everything goes" lifestyle that attracted the artist to the East Coast was being transformed by the corporate powers that be before his very own eyes and drawing the early impressions of imperfections he observed on the streets and clubs was his way of keeping a record of his life here.
