Pretty Pictures

Just when living in the re-branded NYC was getting me down, I had an opportunity to attend two prestigious art fairs: VOLTA NY , and The Armory Show. This past weekend had a whole slew of fine art festivals, but only so little time to explore. I was given a VIP on Sunday, which left me exactly four hours to check out everything.

VOLTA NY focused more on fine Modern and Post-Modern art.

It’s always amusing to see subcultures you grew up with, now considered to be ‘fine art.’ As with the case with artist Paul Brainard.

Continuing with VOLTA, I stumbled across artist Skylar Fein‘s work. The over-sized installations put the spotlight on items past.

Realizing I hadn’t seen The Armory Show yet, I went next door. First sight was Joan Miro‘s work.

Artist Joan Miro’s section.

This was one of my top favorites. From artist Charmion Von Wiegand.

Before my cellphone battery died, I managed to take a snap of this Andy Warhol piece.

Downstairs was another section, featuring more contemporary art. Unfortunately, my cellphone battery died at this point. These photographs should give you a general idea. Hopefully I’ll be able to attend these two events again, in addition to more next year.
