OPENING PHOTOS: NYC PaperMonster and Leon Ranbow @ Latin Mixx Conference

July 24, 2009
The Latin Mixx Conference was a HUGE success. This year the conference featured some wonderful events including an exhibition of myself (PaperMonster) and Leon Rainbow’s work.The location was breathtaking at the New York Times Center. A ton of people stopped by the event and it was great to meet some new faces and have some old friends stop by. Even Joshua from (HERE) came from DC to drop by and we did a great interview session. His questions were awesome. My next event in the NYC area will be a group show in November and I will have more details coming soon. Catch photos of the event below:::

NYC: PaperMonster Give and Take Project

July 14, 2009
I am very excited to show some new images from my “Give and Take” Project. The city is full of treasures, texture and communication. The new pieces for the project attempt to capture the decay of colors and textures of the street and give them new life. It is great to explore new locations around the city and visit some classic spots that are sure to never disappoint, such as the Candle Building on Wooster Street. I think the project is going in the right direction and I can’t wait to see what direction it takes me in. Enjoy the images below and feel free to send me your thoughts at

Not sure of the name of the street artist who placed the bowl of cherries but together, along with the glare from the trees this picture turned out great.

Liz Claiborne x PaperMonster ????

June 30, 2009
This just blew my face open. I just ran into a wonderful post by Grant for his site HERE (LINK) of a fashion critique on an ad for Liz Caiborne which also happens to feature a PaperMonster signature tag on a wall above the designer Issac Mizrahi. Why did they keep that there? and why was it not photoshopped out? A picture is worth a thousand words. Check out the images below.

This is an ad at my train station in Connecticut. It ‘s for Liz Claiborne and it features Issac Mizrahi. Notice the man in a green scarf sitting on the bench. On closer scrutiny, this proves to be Monsieur Mizrahi himself, lost in thought, putting in this carefully managed appearance, a little in the manner of the master Alfred Hitchcock in his early days.
It’s a wonderful piece of advertising. It has a certain emotional tonality that distinguishes it from most of the fashion advertising I’ve ever seen. It has a narrative verve, doesn’t it?
But of course the semantics of the narrative have been withheld from us. So the fun of the ad is figuring out what’s up. There are three dyads. The two women to the left are having a great conversation. About what? The two women in the middle: are they together? Probably not. The two women to the right: mother and child? Surely. That leaves the model who as a contemporary model is looking not quite of this world.
And Mizrahi himself. Reading. What? Why? What is he doing here? It’s a little like a celebrity appearance, a cameo. The ad is equal parts naturalism and evident artifice. Perhaps Mizrahi should be understood as a kind of muse: the designer who attends every public showing of his art. Notice that on this instance of the ad there is graffiti that (probably) reads, “Paper Monster.” …………… Continued HERE
