"The Artist is he who detects and applies the law from observation of the works of Genius, whether of man or Nature. The Artisan is he who merely applies the rules which others have detected." —Henry David Thoreau
Loved meeting him as he set up shop on the street corners of New York selling art in the Village. We connected via our passion for art and celebrated instant conversation.
When I asked to photograph him, he quickly brushed his rockstar hair and began to pose as well as take good direction. This shot is one of our favorites.
By the way, he paints on canvas, board and foam — the drive of an artist to create fully at work. As he coolly embraces his work — notice the paint on his fingertips.
