I can't see ya, but I know you're here. I feel it! You've been hangin' around since I got here. I wish I could see your face. Just look into your eyes and tell you how good it is to be here. Just to touch somethin'. See, that’s cold. I feel good. There's so many good things. Or, here. To smoke and have coffee - and if you do it together, it's fantastic. Or, to draw. You know, you take a pencil and you make a dark line, then you make a light line, and together it's a good line. Or, when your hands are cold, you rub them together. See that’s good. That feels good. There's so many good things. But, you're not here. I'm here. I wish you were here! I wish you could talk to me. 'Cause, I'm a friend. Compañero. #WingsOfDesire

#repost @beyondthestreetsart ・・・ @madsaki ’s work is the culmination of his attempts to understand his bicultural identity growing up in America. Or more specifically New Jersey, right on the border of those hallowed grounds of the Bronx and Manhattan — the holy grail not only of graffiti history but the entire world of fine-art institutions and blue-chip-gallery culture. His paintings, “serious” spoofs of the most famed artworks of the Western world, rendered with a spray-can aesthetic, capture perfectly the sense of an artist at a distance from the culture and unsure of what the rules of art are supposed to be. What is art? What is graffiti? Where does a lack of inclusion in the traditional art world meet the desire to vandalize? That sort of rule-breaking led to MADSAKI’s recent output, where tags like MADSUCKY WUZ HERE make their way onto fine-art canvas, a balance of frustration between being an outsider and making fun of one’s creative roots.
