“New York Shitty celebrates everything about the city that isn’t Big Art, Big Money, Big Fashion and Big Glamor – embracing the gritty, the raw, the democratic, the unwanted, the despised and the persecuted. “ ....Yup, that’s me.
So in the spirit of being unwanted and despised, I was included in this show located at Con-Artists Collective, a gallery space on the Lower East Side. Curated by Uta Brauser, owner of the Bushwick Gallery Fish With Braids, it was described in the Bedford and Bowery blog "as much an occupation and a performance as it is an exhibition of goods."
Other artists in the show are James McGann, Motherpigeon, Smitty “Subtexture” Smith, Omer Gal, Josef Pinlac, TV Douglas, Jenny Heissenhuber, Sarah Wang, Julz Art, Dave Tree, Blancablanca, Blind, T.Mas, Uncle Riley, Wizard Skull, Frank Ape, Lenore Cohen, and T-Fuk.
"New York Shitty” will be at the Con Artist Gallery at 119 Ludlow Street until March 12. On March 5 – 6, “New York Shitty in Real Time,” a live street action event, will be taking place in the Meatpacking District. For more details, see here.

The Single Eye. My manifesto for today.
To a huge degree,my lifetime painting project, “If Thine Eye Be Single” series was generated by an interest in gnosticism. This has not only has been a lifetime preoccupation for me, but obviously, mysticism is one of the basic themes in the realm of all artistic expression. This project has been ongoing for twenty-seven years now, and at first my motivation was to channel my "subconscious" but now I call it "non-physical realms" which is pretty much the same thing. As I began to understand consciousness, I have realized that ALL thoughts, beliefs and vibrations are available. My steering-wheel through infinite parallel universes are my emotions. The way thoughts feel, emotionally is my (and your) internal guidance system. As a consciousness aligns with love/light by "good feeling thoughts" the internal vision becomes non-dual. The eye becomes "single." The single-eye is my obsession. You will always find the motif of the "single eye" in my paintings and doodles. "If thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”- Matthew 6:22

Holy Shit, someone posted these Taylor Swift photos on Instagram wearing a shirt with a design that I did many years ago for the iconic Buffalo, NY punk-rock band - The Fems! Woah!
All I can say is, Taylor, you have extremely eclectic taste and the classic KK-art looks awesome on you. Not to mention, the design matches your lipstick!
Seriously, Taylor, give me a call... - KK
