    Joe vs. the art world

    My money, as usual, is on Joe.

    We first met Rashaad Newsome in 2010 through a mutual friend of mine, Rich Sha at Rennen International. Rich had been working with Rashaad on a project when Rashaad came up with an idea of candy paint on vintage frames, and had asked Rich where the best body shop in the tri-state for "Lamborghini type paint". Rich told him there was only one place to go- MAC, and arranged the meeting. Followed by a few meetings... and possibly a drunken gallery opening or two.

    Rashaad had been displaying his artwork in these French Neo-Classical frames that were, literally, hundreds of years old. The idea dawned on him to make the frames part of the piece by adding his "touches" to them and having them painted in crazy bright and candied colors. Joe, being the maniac that he is, was of course down.

    Frames were delivered....
