The closest thing to art in your apartment is the installation of assorted deodorants in your bathroom. (You call it “Still Life with Wetness Protection.”)
Time to redecorate.
Start with a portrait from artist Pete Nawara. After a stint at Parsons in Paris, Nawara returned to a Pilsen studio to create large-scale contemporary paintings for the masses.
First, Nawara asks his subjects to pretend his camera is a mirror and check themselves out (girl’s bathroom style). Then, he snaps photos, transfers them into his computer, fiddles with an image, and projects it onto a canvas. He traces it and fills in the shapes with watered-down acrylic paint and gouache markers. A little gold leaf applique and voila: the perfect accent for your pad.
And one you don’t have to keep a Secret.
