James Franco Paints NSFW Portraits Of BFF Seth Rogen

Art

James Franco, Hollywood’s Jack-of-All-Trades, is readying the debut of a new art show that will go on display in NYC and LA sometime soon and to generate interest in the show, he has released photos of two of the paintings he created for the exhibit. James chose his BFF Seth Rogen as his muse and decided to paint him in the nude. I suppose, technically, the paintings can be considered NSFW (after all, one painting features Seth’s testicles) but honestly, they’re really more hilarious than anything else. And they’re not bad paintings at all, if I’m being totally honest. Have a look below, see what you think. More »

O Kay!

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon I met up with my friend Adriana for a late lunch/early dinner at Petty Cash for some tacos and convo before we made our way to her friend Michael Decker‘s art show opening. His exhibit is called New Car Smell and it is currently on display at the AMBACH & RICE on Wilshire Blvd. here in LA. After the opening, Aide and I parted ways so that I could meet up with my friend Genevieve at El Cid in Silverlake so that we could see Kay Hanley of Letters to Cleo play an intimate solo concert. After that, Gen whisked me away to West Hollywood to do a bit of dancing at Giorgio’s inside The Standard Hotel. It was a long but very fun day/night. More »

Blast from the Past

The Andy Warhol Museum announced today that they happened to find an old computer sitting in their archives that housed floppy disks from 1985 that contain previously lost computer artwork created by Warhol himself. The art was commissioned back in the 80′s by Commodore International to show the power of their Amiga personal computers and was previously thought to be lost. Amazingly, the floppy disks were found and the information stored on them has been retrieved … so we now have access to newfound artwork by Andy Warhol. Wow. Click below to see 3 of his computer created pieces and learn more about how this artwork was salvaged from that old computer. More »

Art In Chinatown

The TV Guide

After my very successful morning at Amoeba Music for Record Store Day yesterday, I did a bit of work in the afternoon before I met up with my friend Adriana and her friends Jenny and Lila for an art opening by Adam Villacin + Ashkahn (who are also friends of Adriana). The event was held in Chinatown at a space called Happy Lion … so I got all dolled up in my best 90′s gear and headed out. The art show as a great success, we all had fun. After the show, we made our way to DTLA for a late dinner. I ended my night doing a bit of dancing and, well, I ended up enjoying a really fantastic Saturday. More »

The Turtle Arty Art Club

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Tamar, Ollie, Amelia and Caleb for an impromptu night of art appreciation in downtown LA which turned out to be a lot more fun than was anticipated. Originally, our plan was to make our way to Ham & Eggs Tavern to see an art show featuring work by Annie Motel (who is one of our dear friends) and then grab some dinner nearby. We ended up chilling for a bit at Annie‘s show, then making our way to another gallery called Arty to say hello to one of Tamar’s friends. We ended up spending some time at that gallery appreciating the work of artist Len Aaron, the 97 year old co-founder of Aaron Brothers Art and Framing. We all fell in love with Len, who was at the gallery showing off his work, and he loved all of us … especially the young ladies. More »
