Mbongeni Buthelezi

An artist friend of mine, who’s incredible in her own right, turned me on to this fantastic artist who uses a heat gun to create beautiful paintings out of discarded plastic bags.

Double Trouble “Booby Trap"

My painting "Booby Trap" will be featured in a group show at the Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Art Gallery from August 28 - September 24. The location is 417 Lafayette Street and the reception is September 10, 6 - 8pm. The title "Booby Trap" has a double meaning. It refers to not only the barbaric, tortuous wires that are in most women's bras but also the fact that these wires arrange our bosoms into apparently irresistible booby traps for men. Thus, a double booby trap for all sexes. And, in case you're wondering, those are real bra wires in the painting.
