Ladykillers Inc: Joe Coleman, Eric White, and Special Agent Lance Armstrong

It was genius art star TOM SACHS' nite to shine on Thursday in NYC when his "Animals" show opened at the prestigious SPERONE WESTWATER GALLERY where Supertouch's own ERIC WHITE, JOE COLEMAN & WHINEY WARD, and LANCE ARMSTRONG were out to support Tommy Boy in full effect. Following Sachs’ awe-inspiring Sperone installation, he managed to knock the remaining and otherwise composed onlookers jaws to the floor with a second late-nite opening at LEVER HOUSE where his monumental new bronze Hello Kitty sculptures (formed and painted to resemble foam core constructions) were unveiled. Raw power indeed. Hands-down, Tom Sachs is one of the most brilliant and visionary minds of his generation, a fact made more clear with each successive show of pure force. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

The art world's power couple: Jeff Koons & Shepard Fairey... 

In NYC as a featured speaker at the media symposium announcing the launch of GOOGLE's new iGoogle artist themes last week, Supertouch's own SHEPARD FAIREY shared the stage with none other than mega artstar JEFF KOONS. In case you've been living under a rock, Google's new themes for personalizing the interactive iGoogle page include imagery and gadgets by Lance Armstrong, Shepard Fairey, Hysteric Glamour's Nobu Kitamura, A Bathing Ape's Nigo, Jeff Koons, The Beastie Boys, and the Rolling Stone's Ronnie Wood to name a few. In other SHEPARD FAIREY news, it seems our boy wasn't content tackling the realms of popular culture and politiks with his trademark neo-constructivist artwork and has moved on to the canon of modern literature by redesigning the covers of author GEORGE ORWELL's legendary novels of doom and paranoia, "1984," and "Animal Farm." Damn, kids are spoiled these days...

Heavy flossin' at Casa Odom...

This just in from Supertouch's own DARREN "DR" ROMANELLI: looks like the LA LAKERS' superstar forward, #7 himself, LAMAR ODOM took delivery on his custom-made DRx Lakers' championship tribute jacket in time to rock it at Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets tomorrow. Let's just hope it's weatherproof enough to withstand the upcoming Purple Reign...
