Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2010 by James Field

On February 14th, the extremely talented street artist Mr Brainwash, debuted his highly anticipated  showcase “Icons” in a 15,ooo sq ft installation space in the Meat Packing District. The show featured pop art, paint splattered images of famous celebrities, athletes and pretty much everyone else important all done in a cool, quirky way. Myself and a few of my friends managed to go to the special celebrity viewing, and here are some of my favorite images from the exhibit courtesy of the Village Voice.

The entire night was so great! We were able to view some amazing art, sipped Champagne and danced it up with a few celebs. Overall it was a crazy, random, amazing time, here are some of our candid shots courtesy of my good friend Leia Jospe.

Elizabeth Lippman is a New York based Fashion Photographer who is truly amazing. She produces and shoots a column  for the New York Times Style Section entitled “Life As A Runway”. She also has shot for Elle, The Boston Globe, Luck Magazine, and Marie Claire, just to name a few. Recently she has been working on her directorial debut for her fashion, murder, mystery film titled “Last Seen Wearing”, starring David Dastmalchian as a New York reporter investigating a series of disappearances during New York Fashion Week. Kelly Cutrone, Molly Sims, and Kathy Horn all make an appearance along with a slew of other important fashion figures. Last night was the last “party scene” of the film, shot at club Tenjune in the Meat Packing District. Your truly was one of the extras in the scene, along with a few male models and actors, my part is very small but I am wearing a bright pink sweater, so it will be easy to point me out! It was such an honor meeting Elizabeth and David Dastmalchian as well as the cast and crew. Here are a few photos from the “big shot” scene, I used my camera phone so I apologize for the low quality.

The photo of myself in the mensroom of Tenjune with “Hello Gorgeous” written on the mirror was just too hilarious and I couldnt resist! The entire experience was so surreal and amazing, I was so honored to have met Elizabeth and David and the whole cast and crew. I can’t wait for the film to be completed, it has such a great story line and David is a great actor. No word yet on any expected release date so stay tuned!

 Thank you so much to Chad Thompson, Elizabeth Lippman and David Dastmalchian.

Cupcake Café

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 15, 2009 by James Field

Sugar rush’s are definitely a sporadic disorder that I suffer from, and whenever I need a sugar fix, I visit the Cupcake Cafe. Located on West 18th st, their cupcakes are so delicious, I sometimes go over board (one time I ate 4!), but the array of scrumptious cakes and whipped, buttery icing is overwhelming at times!

 

I recently visited the cafe on my day of shooting for TBN (The Black Nouveau) in the Meat Packing District and after a long day I was in need of a break, and what better place to go on a beautiful day than to a cafe that is totally comfortable, quite and offers some of the best treats in the city? The Cupcake Cafe is a great place to go on a budget (cupcakes are $2.50 for small and $3.50 for large) and a great place to just relax in and indulge your sweet tooth
