IRWIN Live consists of paintings from the “Was ist Kunst” series installed on the ceiling with the Irwin members suspended below them so as to appear standing as spectators in front of their paintings.

Another favorite of mine an artist from Santa Fe, NM, Erin Currier, does these large format, multi-media images. She uses layers of material, paint and other material “waste” to create her images. Much more dramatic in person.

“Don’t get a tattoo”, they said. “It will look like crap when you’re older”, they said.

This is amazing, whoever did this showed the true side to tattoos, people who do not regret them, people who are proud and did not bail out! This is amazing!
