Crystal Magazine for my next exhibition SELF STRUCTURE in Istanbul with @mosaicartfoundation
The Venus of Arles was discovered in several pieces in Arles in 1651 by workmen who were digging a well. The head appeared first, at a depth of six feet, which spurred further excavations. It was given in 1681 to Louis XIV to decorate Versailles. The statue was seized from the royal collection during the Revolution and has been at the Louvre ever since its inception. The Crystalized iteration of the work was discovered in 3020 also in Paris. Further examination revealed that the work had been restored to its original condition of discovery nearly 2000 years prior. It appears that some time in the 20th century, restoration occurred on the sculpture to bring it back to its original rough surface, untouched by the changes to smooth it out during the Renaissance.
NO BAD ENERGY @nas

“For me this work is about a collapse of time. It also brings my Future Relic work in conversation with Art History. Although the subject matter is contemporary the texture and depth of the bronze reminds me of Rodin or Brancusi. So much of my work involves the popular culture of today however my education included all periods of Art history and I have always wanted my works to communicate with time”
A series of broken shapes in the walls begin as an abstract hole and finish in the shape of a figure. Part of my exhibition Perpetual Present at @how_art_museum in Shanghai. 🇨🇳
The largest work I have created to date will greet viewers as they enter my exhibition at @how_art_museum / Weighing in at over 4,000 lbs, it took nearly 2 years of work to complete this work in Bronze. I hope you can come and see it in Shanghai!
Walking through walls. My exhibition at @how_art_museum in Shanghai opens this Friday June 28th 3019.

This 100 Square foot room was my apartment from 2008-2011. I couldn’t afford the studio and a separate apartment so I built this. It was only accessible by climbing a ladder through a hatch in the ceiling of my studio. It didn’t have any windows so @snarkitecture made a lightning system that would slowly illuminate with the sunrise. The walls were covered in 25,000 hand-painted spheres and there was an integrated heating/cooling system that pushed air through the spaces between the spheres. @jr took this picture sometime around 2010. 🖖🏼
Finally added a giant @haroshi Guzo to my collection 🎱
