A visit from Hanky Panky and wife from Amsterdam

February 11th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Friends - (Comments Off)

One of the things I have always loved about tattooing is the broad reach of  friendships among the artist. And the you never know what the day might hold feeling I wake up with.  Today Hank Schiffmacher “Hanky Panky” and his lovely wife Louise stop in on their way to the Philadelphia tattoo convention. What a pleasant surprise.  I just seen them in Amsterdam a couple months ago for Hanks Grand opening of the “Amsterdam Tattoo Museum” where I was honored to lend a hand during the pre opening prep work , along side friends like Juan Puente, Tommy the truth, Dan Dringenburg, Duggie Mitts, and Filip Lou.  check out the Museum here > “ATM”

Tattooing has given me so much, especially intangible friendships, old and new. Build your friendship on solid ground, and they will last forever.

Solo art show at Max Fish LES NYC on the 21st

February 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Painting - (Comments Off)

I’ve spent quite a few nights at this legendary Lower East Side bar/art gallery called Max Fish.  Out of the many places I’ve been to in this city, this is the one I feel the most at home. Thats why When I was asked about doing a show here I jumped at the opportunity. (second solo show ever, maybe last)

 Max Fish is a Lower East Side institution, it has been serving cheap drinks back when Ludlow Street was nothing but dry goods stores and drug dealers. Now it’s all overpriced boutiques and frat boys, but Max remains, though the local clientele has been augmented by British tourists and PR girls. The big, high-ceilinged room has a pool table in the back, booths at both ends and a creative, ever-changing paint job pulling it all together.  Many complain about how bright the bar is, but the light level allows you to appreciate each month’s art show and offers a fighting chance against beer goggles.

The NYPD and the owner keep making attempts to shut this historical Lower East Side bar down, for no good reason. For now bar remains open and a landmark of significance to NYC, in particular its Lower East Side.  After over two decades, we hope it stays that way, open.

Im honored to show some of my watercolor paintings at Max Fish, And to have my big brother Stack Aly DJ the event.

Thanks,

Ulli

Opening reception Feb. 21st 9 pm- on (178 Ludlow St, LES, New York City) is open to the public.

Go outside

Kids get outside; play, create, and build. Build real life experiences. Don’t sell yourself short by thinking if you google it you’ve been there, trust me it ain’t the same.  Live you dash.

A throwback photo of Norton, Brian, and D (Grand opening of new shop location circa 2009) That was a good time. but the best is yet to come.

It was also my close friend Morgwn Pennypackers birthday that day and about 28 or so friends got a little cartoon head of him tattooed. It was a great night my friend Diablo Dimes played, the Diamond Dog Crew was all there, and old cars lined the outside of the building. The night was full of fun, laughter, and well wishing friends from all over. Thank to everyone who was there. Here some more photos of that great night.

Happy Festivus for the rest of us.

December 24th, 2011 | Posted by admin in Events | Photos - (Comments Off)

Although “Festivus” is somewhat officially celebrated on the 23rd I always think of it on christmas eve or christmas day.  I always get a little weird on holidays due to the fact Im usually traveling abroad or living away from my family and some of my favorite people to be around, so “festivus” is a fun way for me to be a bit cynical abut the christmas holiday. Im a big Seinfeld fan and thats where I first heard of this silly holiday.
