The fragile balance of the art world was shaken recently, when the great child actor, Macaulay Culkin, revealed to the world that he actually is part of an art collective
Macaulay (and 2 random hipsters) supposedly made these paintings with a sort of 'pass n paint' approach. I can tell Macaulay did most of the work, judging by the heavy use of interiors (or homes) and the theme of lonliness (or 'a-loness').
I really enjoy the references to 90s pop culture such as Seinfeld, Wheel of Fortune, and Kurt Cobain. One can only assume that Macaulay's new friends helped him kick the drug problems he struggled with, and that the collective's art making process is a testament to the drug-free lifestyle.
Although there's no rainbows, glitter, or dancing bear magicians, Macaulay has clearly entered himself into the conversation of world's greatest artist, a list that includes such prominent names as Lisa Frank and Thomas Kinkade.
The show is up through December 15 at Le Poisson Rouge, so get on a plane you think isn't going to to New York this holiday season, and check out one of the greats!
