Posted 6/26/15

In celebration of Pride week, Christie's ran a special Warhol auction this week, making some 100 photographs and drawings available to purchase.

Halloween-a-bramovic: Four Unspooky Costumes for the Lazy Art Appreciator   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/30/14

Halloween, for me, is the true “most wonderful time of the year,” and so it came as no real surprise to be asked to outline a few costume suggestions for the readers of this website. While most of my own clothes can do double-service as both everyday wear and Hammer-Horror garb alike, I recognize not everyone reading is capable of making the same assertion. (I should note that when this article was first proposed to me by an Editor, it came with the suggestion that I dress my partner&... [more]

By Reed V. Horth, for and Robin Rile Fine Art “I have a fantasy about money: I’m walking down the street and I hear somebody say in a whisper ‘there goes the richest person in the world’” ~Andy Warhol The building is not at all what I expected. Perhaps I did not know precisely what to expect. One side of my brain expected a multi- colored eyesore that city commissions would have surely been bribed to accept.
