My solo show, Crucial Fiction, opens November 1 at Opera Gallery NYC. It’s a collaboration with my former self. I thought it was time to ask my inner child to help me remember what it was that he saw so that I could finally animate his vision. I also curated the Politics and Art November issue of Juxtapoz Magazine.

It’s full of intriguing articles about artists working in a political vein and features quite a few artists and filmmakers who may be new to Juxtapoz readers. And then I’m painting a massive mural on Mulberry Street in Little Italy, as well as an installation inside Caroline’s Comedy Club in early November as part of NYC’s Comedy Festival this year. So if you’re in downtown Manhattan next month, look for a large “hulking” Temper Tot on a wall above you.
