Got this message from Tod Seelie, photographer of bike culture who’s been traveling around Asia riding tallbikes.
I recently returned from a rather adventurous summer and wanted to pass on some things you might find of interest.
Tomorrow night, Friday the 20th, I will have photos from our raft voyage on the Adriatic Sea on display as part of the show “Punkabbestia” at Anonymous Gallery in Manhattan. The same voyage was featured this summer in New York Magazine, with my accompanying photos and slide show. After that, some friends and I rode bicycles through Indonesia and Japan, including several tall bikes. Upon returning to the States, I headed to Portland, Maine for a residency at The Bakery Photo Collective and lent a hand to my friends who were working on a collaborative installation at SPACE Gallery entitled Distance Don’t Matter.
I recently exhibited some work at Waiting Room Gallery in Tokyo as part of the group show Spirit Assembly, curated by Cinders Gallery in Williamsburg. Next up I am showing some work with Ad Hoc Gallery in Miami for Art Basel. I was also chosen at one of the five Brooklyn music bloggers “that matter” by New York Magazine, so that was cool. I also had the first piece of clothing bearing my work released through Carrot Clothing. This summer there was some love from The Death Set on the Van’s Blog and on How To Avoid the Bummer Life.
Also, an interview I did about my work for Revel In NY has been relaunched on their new site. You can check it out to remember what I looked like before a moustache took over my face. I was also interviewed by MTV Brazil (click on Bloco 2) in a piece that features the Vivian Girls. I’ve recently learned to “Twitter,” so if that is of interest to you, you can find me here: http://twitter.com/suckapants. And as always I chronicle my adventures on http://suckapants.com. Most recently on Sucka Pants: Halloween and Day of the Dead in New Orleans, the road trip down through middle America, and the aforementioned bicycle and raft trips.
