Luke Wessman’s Max Fish Art Show LES NYC

Luke Wessman's art show Max Fish 2/21/12

So I have been waiting to do a little post on my art show at Max Fish last week , but wanted to gather some photos that were taken by  friends that night.

I didn’t move to New York with plans of having an art show, I moved here to tattoo at “Wooster Street” aka NY INK, and try to grow as a person and a artist in search of new adventures and opportunities.  Having said that Max Fish was the only place I would have had an art show, the place just felt right from the beginning, Max Fish just has good mojo, and its my understanding that its hard to get one there, so it all working out the way it did, I just have to say, it was meant to be.   I am so humbled by the love and support all my new NYC family showed me, coming out and showing so much love and support.   Not being from New York, only spending less then a year here, and having such a amazing turn out, it almost makes my eyes water, almost.  Thank you all who came out I am honored by your support and friendships. 

Respectfully,

Luke

Here is some photos from friends that night, and a few new paintings.

PS : A special thanks to my family members Rob, Brian, and Diana for coming out just for the show, I love you guys. And Aly, I love you too brother.

…on to the next project

During this trip to California I  put a little tattoo on CM Punk in our friend Toby’s office up in Los Angeles.  CM Punk was the last member of the LYD- Crew (our crew started in NYC last year after the 6 of us went to see “Into the Abyss” one night, I personally didnt love the movie, but I love the message we took from it ) to get his tat. The circle is now complete.

Our #LYD- Crew = Seth aka Goon, Myself, Toby, CM Punk, Jere, and Jake #PMA #OLOC

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.

Rose tattoo reference “Always in bloom”

January 4th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Photos | Reference - (Comments Off)

You can “Google” roses or buy flower books to get more reference,  but nothing beats the observant eye.  Look at this beauty on the side of the sidewalk in my old neighborhood in San Diego, California. Nothing beats the real thing. (no photo filter) amazing.

Diego, Brian, and I chilling on the stoop at my work in Soho. I love when my family visits from California. It really makes my week. Thanks Brian (and D) for coming out to spend new years with me and start this year off right. Family First.   =GPxPCxCSxLYDxBTSxLTDxILMTxGxPV=

Ghetto Protected Crew member “Kiku”

December 25th, 2011 | Posted by admin in Friends | Photos | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

GP is Family, a Crew, a Fellowship, and an understanding.

Made up mostly of quiet giants people you may have never heard of people who are constantly pushing independently, artistically and financially …Mostly fellas who have come from very humble beginnings and should never have made it as far as we have, dudes who have made it through the ghettos in which we were raised without being jailed or killed. And have made it beyond the traditional ghetto mentality … And instead of fighting over our blocks were fighting to buy our blocks…becoming owners not renters . Leaders not followers. Through any means… violently, politically, or poetically. Not just survive bit thrive.  And when we roll though hoods we are protected because real recognizes real. Ghetto Protected.  Were out to snatch fame from the lames…and chedder from the haters.  And give game to our youngsters… So they can stop looking up to wanksters.
=G/P FAMILY= Welcomes Kiku

 

*Chairman-Morgwn Pennypacker   Vice Chairmen- Luke Wessman and  Tim Hendricks                                                                   (the only persons allowed to administer the GP)

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.
