The Makewell Monochrome Party was a celebration of the changing seasons and a preview of my 2019 portfolio to date.
I wanted to find a way to give back to my community – that’s all of you – who have supported my artistic pursuits over the years. So I selected a few pieces to debut, purchased a prodigious amount of alcohol, and sent invitations to my New York-based collectors, who’ve become close friends and confidants throughout my career in fine arts.
Thank you to those who attended– I hope that you enjoyed the company, the art, and all of the wine. Life in New York City gets hectic, so it was great to catch up with the people I hadn’t seen in months and so nice to meet those of you whom I hadn’t met previously.
The event would not have been possible without the help of my good friends Vadim and Michelle, who graciously volunteered his Chelsea loft to serve as the venue.
The 44th-floor home sits amongst the clouds, practically within reaching distance of the Empire State Building. Its location – as well as its white-walled aesthetic – made it the perfect place to host a White Party.
I had a great time at the party and hope that all of you did too. I look forward to continuing to host events throughout the rest of the year, including a full-scale art show— my first in two years. Until then, you can relive the monochrome magic of last week’s partythrough the photo gallery here.
Talented videographer Kyle Rothwell shot some great photos and put together a beautiful video from the evening.
I’m incredibly fortunate to have a diverse array of friends and clients in cities all around the world. But the distance makes it impossible to invite all of my friends and supporters to events like the one that was thrown a week ago.
Still, I love connecting with and receiving photos from my global community.
I recently received this gorgeous photo from one of my favorite clients, Tiffany Waugh, featuring one of my large-scale pieces on display in the living room of her San Francisco home. Using her eye for aesthetic, Tiffany brings a vibrant, modern vibe to any space she works in. I absolutely love this shot of her and the piece, taken by photographer David Livingston.
If you have a Makewell original in your home, please send me a photo!
As you may remember from my last email, I recently released a limited run of Makewell Art notebooks.I’m excited to say that they have arrived– if you were among the first individuals to order a set, they have now been shipped and should be in your hands soon.
If you are interested in ordering a set of five notebooks, you can do so through my website. I have just a few packs left, so be sure to act quickly.
Looking forward to sharing more updates, cocktails, and art with all of you soon!
